I am humbly asking for donations for my beloved angel Joshua, a 32 weeker premature baby delivered due to premature labor at Silliman Medical Hospital, Dumaguete. He was born on January 20, 2020 at 3:54 AM weighing 1,490 kilograms.
When Joshua was born the doctor said they got him out “just in time” since I had an infection and he wouldn’t have survived much longer if he stayed more inside of the uterus.
He went platelet transfusions due to infection, thank God and to his doctor his infection is controlled now and his platelet went up.
Last January 15, Sunday, the doctor told us we need to find a blood donor because his hemoglobin went down and there was no stock of his blood type at the blood bank of Silliman. We are very thankful we found donor by posting in different facebook groups that night of January 15.
He is still intubated to support his breathing and is placed in an incubator until now and tethered to a heart rate machine.
Due to a hole in his heart (Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a medical condition in which the ductus arteriosus fails to close after birth, and lung prematurity he needed extreme medical attention and treatment.
Our baby is fighting for every breath, facing daily challenges caused by a heart defect and lung problem. The doctor cannot remove him from ventilator because he still cannot breath from his own.
He is still at the Neonatal intensive care unit and his condition is still in critical.
Our savings have been depleted due to long stay in the hospital and maybe he still have to stay a month or 2 months more. There is actually no certainty about when our little boy might come home. There was nothing concrete for us to cling to.
We are knocking to your very kind hearts to ask for any amount of donations for baby Joshua.
Thank you in Advance for helping our little boy. And please please pray for our Baby Joshua.
