Three days ago, my sister posted on her social media account that she's feeling sick. The next day my uncle messaged the group chat that she was asking for help to bring her to the doctor because she's suffering from dry cough, chest pain and headache.
There was a sudden commotion in that GC because they were arguing whether to bring her to the hospital or treat her at home. My father insisted to find her a doctor and send her to the hospital for admission. His sisters refused because of the growing number of Covid 19 cases in their province.
After I read all their conversations, I interrupted and insisted for a Covid 19 test. She's currently 7 months pregnant and needs to be treated. I know right from the start she's infected, her symptoms says it all.
And the result came out positive. I knew it! This time, she's having difficulty breathing and her oxygen saturation has lowered to 83% . This indicates severe hypoxia and she needs to have an oxygen support.
My sister was then transferred to an isolation facility with my cousin. She needs to have company since she's pregnant and having a hard time moving. She couldn't eat properly and felt bloated all the time.
It's been three days now that she's confined in the facility. No doctor came to check on her and her baby. They asked her OB-Gyne but we all know it's hopeless. The OB refused to come because she's positive of the virus. Their oxygen supply is becoming scarce.
It's painful to see my sister suffering from it. We couldn't do anything but watch her. She's in Luzon and we're in Mindanao. We couldn't take care of her. The pictures that my cousin sent me made me cry. She's getting pale and yellowish. I don't know if it's because of the lighting or it was really the color of her skin.
She can talk at a very low voice but with her eyes closed. I can see that she's getting weaker and it saddens me to see her getting worst every day. Hospitals are full and she cannot be accommodated. We are trying our best to ask for medical support. I don't know whom to talk to. I just hope their local government will take action on this situation. There were two of them in the facility who are both pregnant. I hope they be given special attention since they are carrying tiny lives inside of them.
I am sharing this because I don't know what to do. I'm confused and worried about my sister and the baby inside her. I just pray that she survive this life threatening condition.
For the second time around, Covid 19 turns its way to my family in Luzon. I hope it doesn't go through the whole compound. Now, all I want is just prayers for my elder sister. That she may gain more strength to fight the virus and survive the struggle to breathe.
I hope everything goes well very soon.. Please help me pray!
