IN LOVING MEMORY OF NANAY FELY CATANGAY
As some of you may know, my lola was admitted to Lipa Medix Medical Center (i-zone) last August 11, 2020 due to pneumonia. Doctors also suspected that my lola might have COVID-19 so she was swabbed the same day. That night, she was bradycardic and defecated and vomited blood so she was transferred to ICU.
Results came back positive (Aug. 13, 2020) so she was transferred back to the i-zone. She was stable and doing fine until tuesday morning (Aug. 18, 2020), she was not being responsive. Her eyes were just open the whole time, not even blinking, and she won't move as if she was paralyzed. The doctors then decided to put her under mechanical ventilation.
The next day (Aug. 19, 2020), she was already responsive and conscious. Days passed, we believed that she was doing better. Almost every day, I contacted my family so that they could see my lola even if just thru video call because visitors weren't allowed. Actually, even I wasn't allowed, but my lola needed extra care and support so I stayed with her in the i-zone. When asked if she's doing well, she would put her thumb up and even tried to speak thru the tube in her mouth. She was a definitely a fighter. Before she was intubated, I would hear her pray every chance that she got. "Panginoon ko, pagalingin mo po ako, palakasin Ninyo po ako, pahabain Ninyo ang buhay ko." That's what I would hear from her when she prays.
Monday (Aug. 24, 2020), she started to get irritated by her intubation. She fought against the restraints attached to her hands and tried to remove the intubation. We needed to reattach the restraints from time to time since my lola really fought against them hard. This went on until the next day (Aug. 25, 2020). My lola was really determined in removing the intubation. She got irritated at us when we tried to tell her no and when we reattached her restraints. I woke up from my sleep at around 5:30 PM that day. There were messages from my family, asking about my lola. I though she looked fine and was just sleeping, so I told them that my lola was fine. But, when I looked at her cardiac monitor, I saw that she was bradycardic. Her heart rate was around 40 only. I showed the monitor to my tito who is a doctor thru vid call. We tried talking to my lola but she was not being responsive. She was supposed to undergo dialysis that night so the nurses were preparing to transfer her to the dialysis unit. That was around 6:30 PM, I think. The cardiac monitor was removed and nurses were at the bedside monitoring her. Around 6:50 PM, one nurse entered and noticed that my lola has no pulse. Asystole. They started chest compressions and maximized up to 10 doses of epi, yet still no pulse. Around 7:40 PM, the doctor announced my lola's death. She succumbed to COVID-19. Thursday (Aug. 27, 2020) that week was supposed to be her second swab test. We really believed she was doing better and that we will be able to take her home.
Right now, as our family grieves, we are humbly asking for your help, to be able to pay for the remaining balance in the hospital and other funeral expenses. Total balance in the hospital is 743, 633.60 but was reduced to 286, 205.42 (see photo below). Funeral services cost 29,500, an urn is 6,000, and burial land is around 40,000. Hence, totaling to approximately 360,000. If anyone of you happens to have extra money and is willing to extend some help to our family, please do. Our family would appreciate it so much.
