STEEMIT HELP: A Blue Baby Patient
Steemit friends, we are knocking at your hearts to please extend your helping hands and prayers to let this baby live and witness the beauty of life.
She is LAINE KHARECE CADUNGOG, six months old baby who is suffering from a blue baby syndrome - a congenital cyanotic heart diseases. She is currently at the Dr. Uy Hospital right now, one of the private hospitals here in Iligan City, Philippines. We all know that upon entering at the main entrance of every hospitals, life becomes very hard and tough.
I am a concerned friend/co-worker of this child's father and I bear witnessed upon his life's burden. It breaks my heart that there's nothing I can do to help him. Life of a worker seems too tough though that some times in our life we're in the top of happiness and then falls down. Honestly, its almost 2 months already we didn't received our salary because of the agency we are under. Its a long story to tell why we came out in this situation but what is important this time is that I, as a steemian, together with YOU, my steemit family could extend and stretch out your loving hands once again to make it possible for this baby to live a happy life.
Blue Baby Syndrome, also known as infant methemoglobinemia, is a condition where a baby's skin turns blue. This occurs due to a decreased amount of hemoglobin in the baby's blood.
Hemoglobin is a blood protein that is responsible for carrying oxygen around the body and delivering it to the different cells and tissues.
When the blood is unable to carry oxygen around the body, the baby turns blue (cyanotic).
She needs an oxygen in order to breath properly. due usually to a heart malformation that prevents the baby's blood from being fully oxygenated. The bluish color reflects the deoxygenated state of the blood. (Oxygenated blood is red.) Sometimes the term "blue baby" is also applied to a child who is cyanotic due to failure by the lungs to oxygenate the blood.
A lot of medications needed but they don't have enough money to buy all of these. I don't know the exact amount of money [Philippines Peso] they badly needed this time since they are still in the hospital right now. But even a small amount can mean so much for Baby Laine already.
