Please help my family, FIX ME.
My Dad, was rushed to the hospital Tuesday night (27th Aug 2019). That night, we found out that he is suffering from a Brain Stem Stroke. Only 1 out of 10 usually survives with cases like this
My Mum, and my Brother was there beside him 24/7. I was living and working abroad, and so I had to find my way to fly to the Philippines the next day. Wednesday (28th Aug 2019. I missed my flight, and I thank God for the people who helped me get into the next afternoon flight. Luckily, I made it.
Fast forward, Friday, (30th Aug 2019), my dad’s condition deteriorated. He was having chills, fever, was sweating a lot, unconscious and was unresponsive. We were so scared. We prayed so hard that the God’s will help him fight his battle. 13:30 of Saturday, (31st Aug 2019) the doctor told us that we have to decide whether we will allow them to do surgery or not. The swelling on his brain was already herniating on the other side, and so they had to perform Decompressive Craniotomy STAT. We were given 5 minutes. Me and my mum held hands together and prayed. We asked the Lord, God to intervene in us. We looked closely at the MRI scan, and noticed an image radiating beside the affected part of his brain. It was the face of the Black Nazarene. 🙏🏻🙇🏼♀️After 2 minutes, I went to the ICU and told the doctor, YES. Let their healing hands touch my Dad.
I have a 3 o’clock habit. Jesus died and has risen on the cross at 3 o’clock. My Dad is a devotee of the Black Nazarene, Risen Christ, and Our Lady of Manaoag. Every time me and my brother had to make sure that we will be beside our dad at the ICU minutes before 3 and we’ll leave after 3. We would say goodnight to him, and assure him that we will just be outside waiting for the visiting hours, so we can be beside him again. We never missed this habit. Never. It would be a big relief to us every time we’d see, and be with him. He was scheduled to do the procedure at 14:00. I got scared. I wouldn’t be beside him at 3.
He was brought down to the Operating Room at 14:58. God, I LOVE YOU. Waited for him at the elevator, and spoke to the medical team if I could have a couple of minutes to pray for my Dad before he enters the Operating Room. He was with me and my mom at exactly 15:00. I prayed. I anointed him with holy water while saying, you will be healed in Jesus name we pray, Amen. Hours have passed, the procedure finished at around 7:30 in the morning.
The surgery was a success! Thank you Lord, God! Thank you, Poong Nazareno! 🙏🏻He was then brought back to the ICU, and to our surprise, HE WAS WIDE AWAKE AND RESPONSIVE AFTER 30 minutes! GOD IS REALLY GOOD! GOD REALLY SENT HIS ANGELS, AND USED HIS HEALING HANDS TO TOUCH OUR DAD.
We are hoping and praying that he will continue to be stable, and so we can start with his rehabilitation/therapy. It is indeed a miracle. Our dad is really a fighter!
Now we are knocking at your kind hearts, please. Our family is in need of Financial Assistance at the moment. Any amount will do. Big or small will really be very much appreciated.
Please also, if it is not asking for too much, include our Dad in your prayers for his speedy recovery. We don’t know how we can return the favor, but as early as now, THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH FROM OUR WHOLE FAMILY. May God bless each and every one of you a hundred folds more.
“The strongest people make time to help others, even if they are struggling with their own problems.”
Whenever I am in doubt, I would turn to my Dad and cry. He would always sing to me Fix you by Coldplay. “Lights will guide you home. And ignite your bones. I will try, to Fix You.”
Now it is our time to Fix You, Daddy. We love you and we will never give up on you.
