Zephy was diagnosed with a cleft mitral valve and suffering from severe mitral regurgitation. We were hospitalized and was intubated 4 times in 17 days in the hospital. But with our most recent 2D echo, our doctor said he has this somewhat supramitral ring but could not totally roll out yet, which we fervently pray would not cause any obstruction in his heart activity. The blood in his heart backs up into the left atrium and enlarges his heart. The oxygenated blood doesn't pump effectively through his body, so his heart activity is heavy in order to supply the right amount of oxygen in his body. But all these are not visible, the signs and symptoms, are not visible in our little Zephy. We are now advised to go through assessment and prepare for his probable open heart surgery at PHC when he gets a little older. He requires lifelong care and surgery. He has tests often, takes medications daily: diuretics, cardiac glycoside, ACE inhibitors, etc, and sees his Cardiologist and other Specialists many times throughout the year.
We are just thankful that our little prophet is a survivor and a fighter and he gives us so much love.
As we all know, open heart surgery is very costly here in Philippines. This procedure is too expensive, we are appealing to your good heart to help us raise fund for our little Zephy . We need to raise at least Php 6000,000 so he can be operated. We really hope he can undergo the procedure so he can be with us for a much longer time.
We can never really forget those people who help us in every journey of our lives. For the continues strength, prayer and hope you offer us is so much to thank and we are forever grateful.
