My son, John Laurence Tuason, was going to buy food from the carinderia this morning when he accidentally slipped on a mossy part of the sidewalk, and fell. He used his right arm to break the fall and prevent his head from hitting the curb, but instead of protecting himself, it made things worse since it caused his right elbow to be dislocated. He now needs to undergo an operation which will roughly cost around 80, 000 Php ($1576) to 100, 000 Php ($1970), excluding room and meds.
Laurence is the oldest among my three kids, all of whom I [try to] raise on my own. I am currently working in a BPO company where I started five months ago. Unfortunately, the four of us doesn't have any HMO benefits yet, which is why I decided to launch this campaign. Money has been really tight lately and honestly, we've been struggling to make ends meet. Most days, we get by with my Dad's help, other days we get by, while some days... well, let's just leave it at that.
Going back to the operation... It hasn't been set yet because he still needs to get a go signal from his neurologist. He is scheduled to go in for a CT scan later tonight or tomorrow afternoon and if everything goes well, then the operation will follow.
