"TIMES ARE TOUGH"- sometimes anyone have lost their jobs, business, wealth, but the most difficult and hard for people who have LOST THEIR LOVED ONE'S LIFE , and that was our PAINFUL experiences throughout my FATHERS journey of his illness, diagnosed LIVER CANCER who was confined for a month in the hospital but he really didn't make it. But we know he is STRONG and FIGHT the pain until his LAST BREATH this February 19, 2020.
We are HEARTBROKEN and on the top of the LOSS we love and really miss our papa so much. The Lord decided to take his borrowed life, after a month of medications, different laboratories and tests in the hospital to cure his illness and spent sleepless nights to take care our beloved father, from then on i leave from job to travel 2 hours to the hospital likewise my brother and my mother spent much love, effort and time which in result of us being left empty handed.
We are still struggling to pay for his funeral and burial expenses.
We would like to ask from your kind heart to please help us in raising for an additional funds and ask to contribute to this crowd-funding in arranging for his proper funeral and services balance to be payed full, to let his rest in peace completely and spending the rest of the 9 days vigil of my papa's wake solemnly.
PAPA'S JOURNEY IN THE HOSPITAL
Eduardo Pantin Almedora known as "Eddie" our father who diagnosed liver cirrhosis with ascitis that leads to LIVER CANCER when he done a whole abdomen ultrasound and confined last January 20,2020 in the hospital @EVRMC (EASTERN VISAYAS REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER). He had a different examinations done like ENDOSCOPY and RBL procedure,got an operation to get rid of water in his abdomen and still striving even if he had a shortage of breathing and put an oxygen until he lost his final breath..
How it started:
In the picture above is my Mother taking care of my Father in Hospital.. They're actually both sick and old..
We need support in this very hard situation.
My older brother, the eldest of us 3 siblings was hospitalized 2017 and almost died, since then he only work at home, taking care of his Kids doing some online business but most of it failed while his wife manage thier small business in a public market in Manila. They earn just enough to pay for house rent, market stall rent, pay bills and bring 2 of thier four kids to school.
I am a primary school teacher, but in debt. My Husband got operation for Severe Cellulitis few months ago and can't work well at the moment. We are also financially drowned.
It's hard to see my parents on that time in this situation.
My Mother also got sick in Hospital.
My mother was always at the hospital to take care of my father although my brother is also there to watch over, my father wanted her to be there all the time. And my mom sometimes got fever as well. Lying in the same bed with my father.
Thing's getting worse then
Spending a month in the hospital, my father dropped so much weight, at first he is not allowed to eat food or even drink water. His Abdomen still getting bigger, and new findings came with different test and examination.
Hemoglobin drops 39 and needed 4 to 5 bags of blood type 0 for transfusion for him to undergo another test.
New Test, New Findings
After test, new findings. Even if my brother took care of Papa at the hospital i rest assured i can monitor time to time the condition of Papa of what was the result of different examinations because i need to work as a teacher and earn for our daily expenses.
Father got operation to get rid of water in his abdomen
"We are not allowed to take pictures or videos during the time. Doctors won't allow my Sister to do so."
February 8, 2020.. The Doctor conducted an operation to get rid of water in his stomach but it did not get his situation any better, liver damage is severe and doctor told my mother that there is nothing they can do to treat my Father's condition and my mother start crying mu Sister says...... It's hard to hear the truth. I know my father wanted to be healed and lived for us for his grandchildren. I don't know how in any way, we can tell him the truth. He is so weak on that time.
We Are Still Hoping for my Father to recover from his illness on that moment.
I know there is no chance anymore for him to get healed in his Liver Cirrhosis that lead to LIVER CANCER because he is old, but we do everything that is possible to extend his life and see us and his grandchildren again. My brother who is in Manila came home to take care of papa in his last journey. It takes 24 hours via land travel to get here, but manage to buy promo plane ticket Febuary 15 before my father died February 19'th. But the sad reality came that he can't talk to father anymore and can't recognize him. Days after, our father has GONE.
This is what God's given trials for us, his FAMILY and it HURTS us so much and we know its very hard to accept he is already GONE. We love our father and he is a LOVING GRANDFATHER (LOLO) to his grandchildren. He is a FRIEND, a GOOD FRIEND to anyone.
I am humbly appealing and writing this story in absolute desperation for support financially. We the children and our mother were not able to raise the money alone for the funeral and burial expenses and for the rest of the 9 days and night vigil of our papa's wake until February 29'th.
I am reaching your kind heart to please support my campaign and help our family STAND AGAIN.
I am heartily asking for your help and invite all well wishers to raise money for this fundraising campaign for my papa's funeral and burial expenses. We need money for daily expenses until the last day of vigil. We are out of funds and in debt, we need money to pay the funeral services coz we only paid a part of it and need to pay for the balance in full. I am greatly appreciate all your support.
I hope and wish that God give us strength and courage. I hope through this campaign will be a great help especially to my MOTHER that we will surpass all this TRIALS and PAIN with the guidance of our Almighty God.
