My 2 years old baby Mike Gabriel was born with anorectal malformation (Imperforate anus with rectovesical fistula) and horseshoe kidneys, had done three surgeries already. He already had transverse loop colostomy done a day after his birth due to imperforate anus with rectovesical fistula. He had his first surgery right after birth and stayed at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit(NICU) almost a month and has been admitted in and out of the hospital. He had undergone his Posterior Sagittal Anorectoplasty(PSARP) called a pull-through surgery scheduled last August 30, 2018. His been in and out at the hospital ever since due to several infection especially on his failed new butt and hospital acquired pneumonia. It's been really traumatic experience because we almost lost him to several complications. The new butt had already prolapsed from the time I got him from the OR and may need to be operated again for correction.Because of this his new butt is always irritated and many times been infected and cost him to be admitted many times and it I always need to put pantyliner, cotton and a plaster in it. As per his new surgeon my baby may need to undergo another PSARP operation to make a new butt again. His third operation was he needs to be circumcized at an early age because of phimosis.
I already stop working to take care of my child since no one is capable of caring for his daily colostomy needs and my hubby is driving his tricycle but the money he earns is hardly enough on our daily needs and on Mike's supplies.
I do hope and pray you could help us for our sons next operation. Some of the medicines and supplies at our public hospital are not available that we may need to purchase outside and also our government insurance does not cover all the cost, colostomy supplies and meds at the hospital.
- I have tried everything possible to raise funds for him but it was not enough. He is being in an out of the hospital due to frequent infection due to his prolapsed butt. He was admitted recently again and was advised by the doctor that my little Mike should be operated as soon as possible or he will get infection again and again and the dangerous part is that he will be possibly be resistant to all antibiotics,if not operated soon.I pray you will open your hearts to help us for his next surgery. Two more surgeries we are almost there on his reversal. It is very painful for me to see him suffer everyday. And when he is hurting I just cry to heavens and pray that God will give us angels who can help my baby Mike because this is the only thing I can do.I am praying always that he will live a normal life like any other kids. Even at his age he gets bullied by other kids because of his bag. Please I'm begging you to help him. I know I could not return all your help but the only thing I can do is to be grateful and pray to God that He will bless everyone who helped and prayed for him a thousand folds.
