SAVE AND HELP BABY MESHCAH ASHRIEL

Update posted by Pam Flores On Sep 23, 2019

Good morning! Charm (Meshcah Ashriel's mom) here. 😊

Yesterday, doctors tried to slowly take the ventilator off of our little one to check if she will be able to breathe on her own. Unfortunately, they found out that there was an air leakage from her lungs probably due to the ventilator pressure. Because of the leak, the air stayed in between the lungs and chest wall that caused her left lung to collapse. As a remedy, they had to insert a chest tube to release the air. Thankfully, despite her collapsed left lung, her o2 sat remained at 95% and she did not manifest signs of distress. Her doctors said, should her lungs continue to stabilize, she will be off the ventilator soon. ☺️

Then the nurses gave the next update. There was a congestion in Meshcah's lungs. 😔 They had to increase the dose of diuretics so she can excrete the excess fluid from her lungs and to minimize her edema as well. One problem solved and another one surfaced. Her potassium level went low due to peeing excessively. As per her doctor, her potassium level needs to normalize otherwise I will not be able to give my breastmilk to her using an oro-gastric tube.

We know that our little one is getting better and better because she was so active that she almost took off the electrodes connected to her chest. To prevent that from happening again, the nurses had to sedate her.😅 She even raised her 2 hands when her 'Nanay Pam' (aunt) went to see her.

Just this morning, her nurse said that her vent setting is now at 25% and her vital signs are good. Her xray results show improvements same goes with the edema and lung congestion. 😊 While they are still working on her potassium level which remains to be low at this point.

When the nurse opened the door for a little while, I shouted, 'Good morning, Love! Mama is here oh. Ang ganda mo naman, Love!' She opened her eyes as if she was trying to find where the voice was coming from. My heart melted. 🥰

How ironic that inspite of what our family is going through right now because of her condition, in her own little ways, she remains to be the same person who's giving us joy, strength and the reason to fight and take each day at a time.😊💪

Thank you Lord for entrusting your daughter Meshcah to us. May you continue to guide and protect her like you always do. And to those who are continiously praying for our little one, thank you for joining us in this battle. 🥰

God bless us all! 🙏🏼

PS: As you may know, our little one's condition requires close monitoring. Hence, her length of stay in SICU is uncertain that piles up her medical bills. We are knocking to your generous hearts.
