Time flies so fast ! It’s really been a long time since my last blog post. I had (and still have) my own health issues, which have had some impact on my everyday life. As I have already told Ferfel, I will again devote more time to the website and the blog in particular. (author`s note)
How is Felisa today?
How is Felisa now? Has she recovered a little? Or to put it another way: has she got used to the regular dyalisis in the meantime? What is her everyday life like?
And what can we do to help her?
Let’s find out!
First things first: Felisa finally got rid of this laborious and infection-prone access to the neck ¨ That really took a long time!
The photo of Felisa’s neck is already a few weeks old. The wounds can be seen to heal, although the scars are unlikely to go away entirely. Despite all that: finally no more tubes on the neck!
Slowely but surely
Slowly but surely, Felisa is getting used to the regular appointments in the hospital. Her blood flows through the dyalysis machine twice a week in order to filter out the waste. Doing the job of a healthy kidney. It`s the machine, that keeps her alive. There is no way around it; unless there is a possibility of a kidney transplant at some point. God only knows…

Experience help and affection
Getting help from total strangers is a very strange but wonderful experience! Our deepest thanks go to all of the unknown people who supported us morally and financially.
YOU out there helped us, when we needed it most !
The donation of this brandnew wheelchair was a great cause and it helps all of us to do our jobs better. Finally, going to the hospital has become a lot easier. Thanks to your help!
Circumstances, struggles, hope, faith…
this is a message I received today from Ferfel (we communicate by FB Messenger). She told me days ago, that she was not able to buy the badly needed vitamines and food supplements for her mother. Once again I catch myself thinking about this poor Filipino health insurance system. The less fortunate are the big losers. Left alone….what a shame.
This fine young lady works like a horse; trying her best to feed her family..taking care of her ill mother; struggling to survive.
Thats why I am asking you again to consider a donation . Any amount will help to ease the pressure.
look at it; don’t look away, please!
You can make your donation in a number of ways. You don’t need a PayPal account. Visa and Mastercard (Credit or Debitcards )are also accepted. >>>link
