My brother Bryan was diagnosed with an aneurysm last June 2016 via CT Angiogram.
It was last Monday morning, 15 August 2016, when he started vomitting which lasts the entire day. He has a history of hypertension and the vomitting must have been caused by his high blood pressure on that day. He already has maintenance at the age of 32. He continue to feel weak until the following morning. He also started to forget about things that he just do. He did not know that he was vomitting for the whole day. He forgot that we just told him that we will go to see the doctor for a checkup at 12:30pm on Tuesday that's why we asked him to take a bath.
He was checked by his doctor last Tuesday and gave some medicines that he should take. He advised us to monitor until Friday. But it was just the following morning, Wednesday, that he was rushed in the Emergency Room as he already feel weak and had very low pulse rate. He does not even respond when you ask him a question. He just sleep and it was hard to wake him up.
The ER doctor advised that he needs to stay in an Intensive Care Unit given his condition. But at that moment, there was no available room in the hospital's ICU. We tried to look in other nearby hospitals to no avail. Since ICU room will not be available at that moment, we decided to get a private room instead, temporarily. The nurses are checking on him every hour. Close monitoring as requested by the doctor.
CT Scan was performed and confirmed that the cause is a ruptured aneurysm. The Neuro Surgeon said that he needs to be operated soon. It is life threatening and very critical. We told the doctor that we do not have money to finance his operation. He advised us to transfer him in a government hospital with facilities for brain surgery asap as the operation will be cheaper.
It was just yesterday, Friday, when we were able to transfer him at the Philippine General Hospital (PGH). His operation was scheduled this Monday, 22 August, as they do not perform operations on weekends.
We really need financial support for his operation. I am the only one working in the family and my salary is not enough to finance his operation. We are knocking on your kind hearts to help us in this time of need. Any amount, big or small, will be very much appreciated. We would also like to request to include him in your prayers too. Thank you very much for your help.
