I have been experiencing pre-eclampsia since the second trimester of my pregnancy making it very hard for me to continue working, I've been hospitalized last August and was told that it may cause for me to have an emergency ceasarian section (CS) delivery though I was able to get discharged after a week. But it didn't stop there so I was never able to go back to work and after a month I still ended up giving birth earlier than I'm supposed to, which is by end of November.
I gave birth at only 7 months of my pregnancy to my baby boy last Sept 27, we have been in the Neonatal ICU (NICU) of the Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center (OMMC) for a month now when all of a sudden, last Monday Oct 28, his heart beat suddenly stopped and he was unresponsive.
The doctors were able to revive him thanks God, but due to his critical condition he needs to use a ventilator which the hospital doesn't have at the moment. Medications as well since day 1 have been asked for since not all medicines are available and most of all, laboratory test like Blood Culture and Sensitivity is also not available in the hospital. The latter alone costs P1890 in total at the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) and so far, it has been done twice to my baby. The ventilator rental is P3600 for 3 days, and will already need to be renewed by tomorrow for my baby to be able to continue using such.
The expenses keep on growing but we as a family don't have the capability to continue as we are not well off. I have tried to reach out to politicians too and have asked for help where I can even if I'm still supposed to be recovering. As mentioned I have been out from work for months now and this is why I humbly ask for any help that can be offered as we really need this for my baby survival.
If you can let me know where to borrow ventilator for free or whom I can ask help to please comment below. Prayers are greatly appreciated too, thank you.
