Hello steemit family,
Here I am to give an update about my grandmother's health. After receiving your donations worth $766 usd or 39k php, our money was finally enough to put her in ICU. But as soon as she was transferred to the ICU, her health got even worse. Her heart started failing causing it to pump less and less by the minute, to a point where it can no longer provide enough oxygen for the body even with the help of the mechanical ventilation that is connected in her nostrils. The doctors said they had to insert the tube from her mouth up to her lungs to supply the oxygen directly, they only notified us after they have placed it inside her.
By the time we saw her, she was all bloody. Her hospital gown is bloody, her bed pad was bloody, her bed and pillow case are all bloody. We can clearly see the excruciating pain that she just experienced, my aunt wasn't able to control her emotions and went wild after she saw her sister all bloody with a very agonized face while I was just starring blankly, trying to comprehend what the h*** is happening, I thought I was still asleep and having a horrible nightmare but after a while it finally sinked in to me that it wasn't a nightmare, but reality. Tears flowed uncontrollably like a faucet that cant be turned off. I regretted putting her inside the ICU, I should've never agreed to put her inside. I thought after putting her inside her life would be saved and she would feel better, but that was a stupid wishful thinking of me. Now her condition is very very very critical, her heart, her lungs, her brain and now her kidney is starting to fail. Her creatinine level is now at 3 mg/dL, while the normal for her should only be 0.5 - 1.1 mg/dL, If it continues to rise up it will indicate that her kidney is likely to stop working and the toxins in her body would have no way of exiting her body causing her to get poisoned from inside.
Now when I visit her, she won't even respond no matter how loud I call out to her and no matter how I tickle her feet and ears unlike before whenever I call out to her she would smile slightly and raise her eye brows and will nod, also when I tickle her feet and ears she would try to kick my hand away. But now, no matter what I do, she won't respond. Her eyes are also kept closed, I haven't seen her eyes opened inside the ICU.
In my second visit, she was still so bloody. I saw her blood dripping out from her mouth. The nurse just placed a bed pad on her chest to catch the blood. It send shivers to my spine when I saw so much blood, is it really normal for it bleed so much? I'm sure that they hit something inside while inserting the tube into her lungs, why can't they be extra careful not to injure her even further. I thought they are trying to heal her, why are they killing her even more. This is really so hard, I wished I was a doctor. I could've taken care of her.
Taking picture inside the ICU was forbidden so this is my only picture of her inside. I took it before they told me that it was not allowed
Now, the bill is also killing us. our last balance was 34,129 php or 655.62 usd because we paid 50k php/960.50 usd for the downpayment so that she can get transferred to the ICU. but now, our bill in just a day sky rocketed to 83,275 php / 1599.71 usd.
This is only for a day, how much more will it rise in the following days. Oh God! my head is starting to hurt, from thinking how we can get through this. My dad and my aunt and relatives can't provide any more money because they are already empty. I can 't concentrate on my grandmother's recovery because of this money issue, our account is already closed and we are told to buy the medicine ourselves in their pharmacy which is still freaking expensive. This is really hard, I am so ashamed to ask for donations from you guys again because you have given us so much already, but it is still not enough and we have nowhere else to go. I will swallow my shame and ask for donations again, i know what i'm asking is very ridiculous but this is the only option that I can think of or can someone let me loan 1000 sbd? I promise to pay it in a year with interest. yes! this is really ridiculous, to ask for a loan in this manner but I am very desperate. This really taught me that our health is our wealth. we really need to take care of it.
I hope you guys can still support us. Thank you.
