Save Our SuperMom From Colon Cancer

Update posted by Nian Cruz On Aug 14, 2019

One day after her operation, Mommy Nene started complaining that she feels uneasy and uncomfortable but is not in any pain. We immediately alerted the doctors and nurses but since there isn't any pain or any trigger point for them to start looking at, we were asked to closely monitor and observe. She wasn't able to sleep during that night and complained consistently that she doesn't know where to place herself.

Diko Ned and I took turns in watching over her, turning her from time to time and ensured she isn't in any pain or doesn't have any other complaints. Her Cardiologist, Dr. Tin Hay (Highly recommended, guys, btw! Super thank you, Doc!) and his team monitored her condition early Sunday morning until afternoon. They suspected too many fluids are being ingested by her body and fluid might be building up in her lungs. They were also watching out for her heart, as her heart rate jumps up so high it limits her breathing. She was placed on oxygen support, but it didn't ease what she was feeling. It was easily one of the longest nights we've had - and we were on the verge of panicking, had it not been for my cousins Ate Badet and Ate Faye who were all the way in Daly City, telling me what to ask the doctors and what to basically do. Dr. Tin Hay visited Mommy Nene 3 times on Sunday morning, assigned a specific senior nurse to look after her, and recommended a really good nephro doctor, Dr. Rachel Chua, to monitor her kidneys.

Her surgeon and cardiologist both decided to transfer her to the ICU, to better monitor all her vital signs and be given extra care and attention. They lowered down her fluid intake through IVs - and soon enough, she finally was able to go to sleep and was not feeling uneasy or uncomfortable anymore. We have nothing but love and appreciation for her whole medical team and to Dr. Samuel Ang and Dr. Eduardo Tin Hay for being on top of our mom's delicate condition and reassuring us that everything will be alright.

This is Mommy Nene the night before her transfer to a regular room after a few days stay in the ICU. She insisted I set up some sort of filter because she looks "too sick" without it. Don't you love her bunny ears? :)

She is now back in a regular room, can breathe freely without oxygen support, and already has the go signal to be on a general liquid diet. My Diko and I are finding a way how to liquefy Red Ribbon's Butter Mamon... do you have any idea how? Just kidding. :)

We are again so grateful for all the prayers and support you've sent our way!

Mommy Nene was offficially admitted yesterday afternoon at Chinese General Hospital in Manila in preparation for her surgery tomorrow at 7:00AM. She is strictly being monitored by her medical team and surgeon, and is currently doing pre-laboratory work and other tests to ensure that the operation will be successful tomorrow. We will be staying in the hospital for a minimum of one week.

She is currently on a Clear Liquid Only Diet in preparation for her surgery. If you wish to visit her, kindly send me a message on Facebook or Viber so we can coordinate offline regarding schedules and her room number. It will surely mean a lot to her!

We are all grateful for the support and love you have extended to us these past two weeks, and Mommy Nene is gaining strength and courage from all of the prayers and help you have given our whole family!

Yesterday, Friday, August 2, we went to Dr. Eduardo Tin Hay in Chinese General Hospital for Mommy Nene’s clearance. The doctor said she is classified as intermediate to high risk due to her having Rheumatic Heart Disease. The risk is about 5-10%. It all depends on how her body will react while undergoing surgery. The shorter amount of time the surgery can be done, the better. The doctor has prescribed her new medicines to help prepare her heart for the surgery. The doctor also believes she is strong for her condition. After being presented with these information, Mommy Nene has decided to push through with the operation. It is scheduled on August 9, 7am, at Chinese General Hospital.


Once again, we would like to thank everybody for your love and support! We will continue to update this page. We can do it, Mommy Nene! Fighting!

Hi everyone,

We just want to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who shared what they can and offered messages of love and support for my mom! She is currently able to eat, sleep and walk quite well, except for pain felt due to some of the medicine she's currently taking. Today will be her cardio visit, and hopefully, we will be cleared to have her surgery and she will be healthy enough to breeze through it.

Once again, thank you all for the love! <3
