US$470.00Donated So Far
Hey again. It's me. Khyle.
My Dad has once again went back and forth from the hospital ever since he suffered a stroke late 2018. He was fine for six months and however was once again put in to a hospital due to other reasons.
As of late, my dad has been diagnosed with Acute Coronary Heart syndrome and also Kidney Complications. We were able to get him hospitalized and out with the help of a few close relatives but after a few days had to be put in to the ICU before he had a check up for his kidneys due to difficulty breathing. He was finally put out of the ICU last Tuesday, but had found out that the government hospital we put him in didn't put him through the Free ICU Despite being a senior citizen due to him availing a private room while the hospital gets the room in the ICU ready for him. The only reason that we have availed him of the private room is because he was having difficulty breathing on warm/hot temperatures and the fact that he is also wearing a colostomy bag as a result of his illness from 2013 which was Colon Cancer.
As of date, his temporary bill without the Professional fee of his doctors has already bloated up in to a hundred thousand pesos. His last hospitalization has already exhausted whatever little our savings we had left. We are on our last legs and have already sold what little assets we had just to get him out the last time. This time around, it seems a little bit more dire.
Update: I just recently found out that my father has to undergo an operation on top of his bills and has not been included yet in to the temporary bill that I have uploaded. The doctors will be applying a uretic stent in to him which will cost an additional minimum of 60,000 PHP.
So here I am again, asking help from the good people of the internet to please help us out of this trouble. I realize that there is only so much one person can do, but with the odds stacked against us and my family, I'm not sure how long we'll be able to last.
