I am writing this outside the ICU Intensive Care Unit of St. Paul's Hospital here in Tacloban. I see my dad sleeping and asking, how did we even get here?
Last Dec 11 at around 6pm, just around 5 meters away from our gate, while riding a motorcycle Daddy got hit by another motorcycle. The driver - a 19 year old boy, recklessly driving in a highway, without a license.
My dad is the typical 64 year old farmer. He was born in Salvacion, Dulag Leyte, but has moved and worked in Makati as a humble car mechanic for 33 years. Upon retirement, he went back to Leyte and tried raising poultry and farming. Boy he loves the provincial life. He even got elected as a baranggay kagawad. It's innate in him to serve and improve things. His teachings would be all about cleanliness, quality, and accuracy. He is a happy person, a loving and sweet daddy.
Right now, I can't see all of this. All I see in him is stress and pain. He is in deep sleep after his craniotomy. The doctor is not guaranteeing anything after the operation and is encouraging us to find funds to keep him in the ICU while he still sees a chance.
Please help us. If we are going to describe this in a basketball game, the game is tight and intense. We are in the overtime point. We're trying to win the overtime. Please help us win.
Thank you so much and we appreciate any amount that can help us push this fight.
I hope we can really succeed in this ordeal and finally see daddy awake and smiling again.
