Wake Up Daddy Alex

Update posted by James Matthew Aguilar On Jun 12, 2020

It's been six months since we were discharged from the hospital and it's almost a year from the time of the incident ( June 28, 2019 ). I know this might not be the best time to reach out for help because there are also a lot of people who need help because of the Covid-19 Situation. For the past six months we were able to sustain my dad's medical expenses because of the insurance funds as well as the donations we got from each and everyone of you. However, my family is in dire need of your help once more. We are at an average, spending Php 140,000 ($2800) for my Dad (Caretakers, Medicines, Food Medical Supplies ).

As much as I have a good and stable job, combined with my family's income, our combined income simply isn't enough to sustain my dad's needs.

We are about to let go of our caregivers / nurses by the end of this month and will bring down our monthly expenses to roughly PhP 90,000 ($1800) but we will still be short on funding. My brother and my mom will be taking over the nurses' job because we simply cannot afford them anymore. The family is trying its best to obtain additional income through various means to make ends meet.

For those who might be asking , my dad is not on mechanical ventilators. Thankfully, he is able to breathe on his own and his vital signs are stable. There were some complications but they were manageable by additional medicines. I havent been spending time inside my dad's room because I am the one who goes out to buy medicines and food items and I wouldnt want to accidentally bring in any virus. My dad still opens his eyes from time to time. We're not sure though if he really is conscious already or not . Whether he comprehends the things happening around him, we do not know. We're hopeful that he does, or he will soon enough.

To be completely honest I was very hesitant to restart this campaign because there has been A LOT of people who gave us support since last year and I wouldnt want to come across as someone who just relies on this to provide for my dad but I am swallowing my pride , as the eldest child and am reaching out to you once again for help.

For those who have given us donations before, the only help I can ask from you is simply sharing my campaign once more. To reach more audiences than we were able to reach before. I am forever indebted to those who supported us financially and I really feel that it would be too much to ask for help from the same set of people again. Im not expecting too much from this round of the campaign again but I'm trying my luck.. Just in case..

After all , I know my dad did as much as he can while we were growing up, so might as well do the same for him to keep him healthy.

Thank you and Keep Safe! Stay Healthy!

My brother and my mom will be taking over the nurses' job because we simply cannot afford them anymore. The family is trying its best to obtain additional income, I for one am trying to look for a part time online job while my sister is trying her luck with once more with online selling to make ends meet.

July 16 , 2019 Hospital bill reached an all high of P1M. Traechostomy and PEG operations have been completed this morning. Dad still unconscious and we still have no idea on when he would wake up. Breathing is not that stable that is why we are still in the ICU of the hospital. Thank you to all who showed support already and we are highly appreciative of all the prayers for my dad. Please continue to share the link so we may be able to reach our target and have enough to cover medical expenses even when we get out of the hospital
