Its been 2 weeks since my last update. Miguel is still in the hospital. He needs to stay for few more weeks. He is still finishing the antifungal medicine together with his other medicines. So far he is stable despite of his potassium and magnessium levels going low. He is regularly having blood test and scans. Results are all favorable. Thanks to God.

He is recovering well. He can walk more now. He can also talk and converse properly.

Once again, thanks for all your continuous prayers for his complete recovery

Miguel was out of ICU and moved to normal ward since yesterday night. All his stats: heart beart, heart pacing, oxygen saturation, blood pressure are stable and still closely monitored. No more machines except for those used in monitoring his stats.

No more tubes or drain on him as well.

He had a PICC line inserted yesterday as he still needs the antifungal medicine for another 4 weeks. A PICC line is a thin, soft, long catheter (tube) that is inserted into a vein in arm, leg or neck. The tip of the catheter is positioned in a large vein that carries blood into the heart. The PICC line is used for long-term intravenous (IV) antibiotics, nutrition or medications, and for blood draws. Migz PICC is via his arm and he is still required to stay in the hospital for another 4 weeks for the duration of the anti fungal medicine course together with his other medications.

He is slowly moving more, sitting, taking walks and doing some rehab and physio for him to gain his body and muscle strenght back. He is lso always asking for his favorite foods! :)

We are eternally grateful to everyone that is continously praying for his complete healing and recovery. And thank you ever so much to all the generous hearts for the support!

Miguel has been off the heart and lung bypass machine since last Friday. The ventilator was taken out on Sunday. He is now with respirator support and medications. He is given antibiotics since he developed fever after the bypass machine was removed. He is still on the anti fungal medication. He is still in the ICU until he gets better.


PACEMAKER

They adjusted his pacemaker settings yesterday back to his usual settings and is being closely monitored. It was changed when he experienced Tachycardia (rapid heart beat) on the morning of Aug 15 and was rushed to emergency via an ambulance.

He have pacemaker since he was 2 years old. Post that surgery he suffered from heart block. Heart block is a disorder that occurs if an electrical signal is slowed or disrupted as it moves through the heart.

FUNGAL INFECTION and PNEUMONIA

He was cleared of pneumonia since last week. However the cause of the fungal blood infection is still unknown so the doctors advised that he may need to take it for another 2 months more.
