Hi! My colleague Yasmin Bauyon Navales, the mother of Daniel Ryu B. Navales is knocking on our generous hearts, her son was diagnosed with Ileus, a debilitating disease for infants. The family is asking for our prayers and financial assistance to continue the child’s life and experience the beauty of this world.
January 1 this year he was admitted at St. Elizabeth Hospital and was diagnosed with sepsis. After 6 days of admission, they were discharged and advised to go home. 8 days after, Little Ryu was rushed back in the hospital due to vomiting of gastric and fecal contents. The child’s condition got worst within his 1week stay in the hospital. Episodes of seizures, enlarged abdomen and bloating was manifested. The physician has advised to seek further management in Davao to rule out his condition.
The family scouted hospitals in Davao but unfortunately, public hospitals were full even in wards. This led to them to Davao Doctors Hospital wherein Little Ryu was immediately given intervention and was diagnosed with Hirchsprung Disease- a condition affecting large intestine and causes problem in passing stools due to missing nerve cells in the muscles of the colon.
Three major operations were done this year. Last January 30, 2019, a Colostomy with circumcision operation was courageously faced by little Ry. Two months later, a pull through procedure was done to him. Thirdly, in June 6, 2019, his medical doctor decided to perform closure of his colostomy. High hopes for their son to have a normal life after the procedures he underwent.
The procedures cost more than 1 Million. They were only able to pay 10,000. He is re-admitted every now and then in the hospital due to hyponatremia, infection and ileus. There is a problem on his preistalsis that made it difficult for him to pass stool and fart. When the ileus loosens, watery consistency of his stool is manifested- this might lead to dehydration.
They have already explore possible avenues to seek help to improve the child’s condition. The family is battling to raise 800,000 pesos to continue his life. He will again undergo Colostomy and Sphincterectomy this December at SPMC, Davao City and by 2020 the closure of his Colostomy.
