Help Save Our Mommy

Update posted by Leah Laderas On Jul 18, 2019

Yesterday our mom was removed from PACU (post-anesthesia care unit) and was brought to her room. I wish I could tell you that she is already better because she is now in her room but she isn’t yet. “wala lang pwesto sa ICU kaya dinala siya sa kwarto niya at doon ikinabit lahat ng kailangan ilagay sa katawan niya; ventilator, oxygen, NGT, dextrose, cardiac monitor, etc.” Her room looks like an Intensive Care Unit right now.

Her arms (black & blue from several needle punctures) and legs are swollen. Her right eye, for 3 weeks now hasn’t been functioning properly. The nerves (which controls the movement of the eye itself and the lid) has been damaged. And the right part of her head… :-(

She is being constantly monitored. A private nurse is looking after her 24/7. Initially we resisted on her having one because that would mean additional expenses but the doctors explained that it is necessary. Her breathing is supported mainly by the ventilator.

Hopefully a few days from now our mom would regain her strength. Her scar would heal nicely. The swelling of her arms and legs would subside. She be fed orally (kahit soft diet lang) She would start talking again. Please help us pray for her swift recovery.

Thank you very much.

After spending more than 3 weeks in the hospital my mom finally got the treatment she badly needed. Yesterday, a portion of her skull was opened to clip the ruptured vein and treat her aneurysm. Everything went smoothly. But towards the end of her procedure her blood pressure started to go down and her heart stopped. For 5 minutes the doctors tried to revive her.

The surgeon went out of the operating room and spoke to us. He told us what happened. Shortly after a nurse called him back to the O.R. - My mom’s heart stopped again. The doctor rushed back in to revive my mom.

Soon after the cardio came out to see us. Normally I appreciate honest, no sugar-coating, real talk. But yesterday I hated everything the doctor was telling us because he was very frank and straightforward; That my mom might not wake up from this procedure. That the lack of oxygen to her brain (when her heart stopped. twice) might have caused irreparable damage. That the first 12-24 hours were critical.

PLEASE HELP US PRAY HARD FOR OUR MOM. We love her deeply and we do not want to lose her.

Thank you very much.

Yesterday, July 13, 2019 was my mom’s scheduled procedure to treat her aneurysm. The procedure was cancelled and moved to a later date because the night before, July 12, 2019 she suffered a heart attack. Right now the doctors are treating her for 2 things; her aneurysm and her heart ailment.

Yesterday after lunch she had another episode. Her BP went down. Experienced chest pains. Sweated profusely. And was nauseated. Doctors initially gave her fluids then later on some medicine to increase her blood pressure. She was also connected to a heart monitor machine. Since yesterday the doctors are monitoring her BP.

We are hoping that her blood pressure stabilizes soon so that she could have the treatment she badly needs. We are also hoping that while we are waiting for her condition to get better we would be able to come up with the funds needed for her surgery. Thank you very much.
