Hello! I'm Elica, one of Vlady's daughters. I started this fundraising for my dad to request for medical assistance.
My dad suffered from stroke 3 years ago and has been in and out of the hospital. The after care and maintenance have been very expensive. 18 October 2020, he was rushed to the hospital due to difficulty in breathing. He was given the necessary tests, his vitals were closely monitored and he had to be tested for Covid-19 twice. Thank God, he was negative on both tests. Doctors from the ER suggested in case dad is still having issues while on nasal oxygen or Bipap (which is a pressurized oxygen to help the lungs and the heart), they will need to intubate him. Another thing to be grateful for, he was stable with the Bipap machine.
The initial diagnoses were the following: lung congestion (Pneumonia), Kidney infection (high creatinine) and irregular activities in his heart (Myocardial infarction) where he might have experienced a heart attack but doctors couldn’t determine when and how recent it happened. One of the options to address his high creatinine level is also to perform dialysis. Again, thank God he is responding well to the medications, so dialysis was crossed out.
My dad is already out of the progressive unit (which is a downgraded ICU) where he was closely monitored as prescribed by his head doctor. He now stays at a regular room, and after a couple of weeks, it seems like the infections just keep coming back. If one is addressed and it gets better, another one would appear out of nowhere. The doctors concluded that this will be a cycle, and we are already offered the choice of stopping the antibiotics since we cannot afford to buy them anymore.
With all the tests, medications and other hospital bills, the current hospital bill is now around PHP 981,448.68. Our family is knocking into your hearts for financial assistance to help us get my dad home. Any amount would be greatly appreciated and would go a long way.
For those who would like to extend help, here are the details through GCash and Security Bank:
