Cherry, age 33 with 3 kids. It was in August last 2018 when she was discharged from PGH after two weeks of confinement because of her second baby. In September, she showed symptoms like nasal speaking, ptosis and fatigue. It was due to those symptoms that she was found out to have myasthenia gravis. This disease is known to be caused by the breakdown in the normal communication between a human's nerves and muscles. Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease that causes weakness in the skeletal muscles, which are responsible for breathing and moving parts of the body, including the arms and legs (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, 2019).
Doctors prescribed medicines. Through several tests, she was also diagnosed to have thymoma. On January 31, 2019, she was confined. The doctors informed us, her family that she needs undergo surgery, targeting the thymoma. But because of her muscle fatigue, she was advised to have vial for five days before the operation.
To date, operation is already finished. But she could not be released from hospital yet because of recurring pneumonia and several infections. Infections must be treated first. If not, muscle fatigue will worsen. These infections together with phlegm cause her difficulty in breathing. She has ventilator to support her breathing.
She has been in hospital for four months now and we don't know anymore where to get financial and medical support for her and for her children.
