Amidst the COVID19 pandemic and chaos, Baby Apollo Gabriel Asedillo was born on April 19, 2020.
At only 27 weeks gestation, he was prematurely delivered at Binakayan Hospital and Medical Center, Kawit Cavite at 6:45AM. He was born weighing only 875g and 33cm long -- which is considered to be extremely a low-birth-weight. Given this situation, he is in a critical state and at high risk due to an infection, sepsis. Apart from this, his lungs and other organs are still underdeveloped which puts our baby in a very delicate situation.
Hoping that there will be no further complications while our baby is in the hands of the hospital's NICU team, he will need to stay under the support of an incubator for at least eleven (11) more weeks or until he is ready and stable enough to join us in our home.
We are grateful for the doctors and the medical team looking after our baby Apollo. As they continuously give proper medical attention to our son's needs for growth, development, and recovery, we know that this would take a huge toll with regards to our financial capacity. Based on our current/running bill, our total projected costs would amount to at least PhP2,400,000.00; this total is computed with at least PhP30,000.00/day multiplied to at least eleven (11) weeks. **We will upload and update medical documents showing a quotation and/or breakdown of projected costs as soon as the hospital releases these to us
We humbly seek for your help in fighting through this situation. Any form of financial help would be such a great help for us.
As we visit our son everyday to check up on his status and for any further updates from his neonatal doctor, we know that our baby Apollo is a strong fighter. And we hope you stand beside us as well as we fight through this journey.
