I've been kept busy in chasing down requirements and trying to find help from charities to get her a 4 vessel angiogram to find the avm and to get her out of the hospotal and back home.

Currently she's ok because she can walk and talk normally with the only problem of being weaker than usual. The bad news is that a urine catheter is needed becuase she is unable to empty her bladder because of the UTI. Hopefully this will come to pass.

We are currently struggling to find the funds to get her the 4 vessel angiogram right now as this will cost roughly $800 to $1000 here in our country.

I just pray that she gets home safe and sound without any more complications. Thank you so much for everyones support so far. Please keep donating to help her out.

She only needs an Angiogram now to find the vein that has caused the bleeding but she's definitely ok now. She can even stand up now, albeit not for too long.

She has UTI but the doctors thinks and hopes that it's only minor.

Thanks to the donations coming in, her medicines are always complete. My heartfelt Thank You to those who donated and shared this fundraising.

Although she is still weakened by the ordeal good news has been forwarded to me from the hospital. I'm currently at home resting when her mom called as it was her turn to guard her this time. She told me that the tube has been removed without complications. Although there is still some blood inside her ventricle, it is no longer putting pressure on her brain and can be remove by medication. Altough the weakened vein is still there and we still need an Angiogram where the doctor can pinpoint where the AVM is exactly and recommend what kind of operation she'll need to undergo. The weakened vein can pop again if left as is.


But along with the goodnews there is a slightly bad news. She gained a Urinary Tract Infection from the hospitaland it needs to be treated as to not spread to her vunerable head

Previously she was very lethargic when the stroke happened. Right now she is fully awake now.


Right now we're waiting for the doctor's order for a CT angiogram. Unfortunately the CT angiogram to find the Artovenous Malformation is very expensive and the operation to remove the AVM is also more expensive and we really can't afford it yet.

It is a neccessity she gets scanned or the stroke will happen again and it may get worse. For now she is still being observed if the tube draining the excess CSF in her brain can be removed.
