Simply amazing.

The night before Omar's admission, he wanted to sleep over with his family at Gaiety. 

Come Sunday, it was chaos. Kids playing around. Adults getting pedicure and manicure services. Some were getting a massage. And some went to bring the kids to the mall. 

Summer and I went school shoes buying in the morning. 

Kuya and his family, together with Jenny, came to see Omar just before he gets admitted at Chinese Gen. Hospital. 

Just before dinner, we finally got a room. We had an early dinner first, headed home to finish packing our stuff and headed to the hospital. 

Papa, Mama, Kuya and Kaye brought us to the hospital. Ojay and Yang met us there as Ojay attempted to donate blood for Omar. Yes, attempted! Ojay was rejected due to high blood pressure. 

Bernie Serrano came with his girlfriend to donate but was rejected too. A friend of a neighbor posted that she donated and said that Omar is blessed for people in the blood bank donating was all for Omar. Little did she know that more were rejected than passed the screening. 

We cannot thank people enough to go out of their way just to donate for people they do not know. 

Simply amazing. 

Not once, but twice.

We heard the anticipated Sunday Mass with the family. 

Omar, again, was annointed by Fr. Mario. 

Reception followed at Pepper Lunch, Omar's promise for the kids granted.

Blood please.

Aside from prayers, we've been asking for blood donors as well. And with Omar having type AB+ makes it even harder. 

I posted it on facebook and it's so amazing how a friend of a friend can be so willing to go out of their way just to donate blood and be rejected from the screening. 

Family, friends, and friends of families and friends are helping solicit blood for Omar. 

Got our first bag of RBC from Jenny's friend from NKTI. 

I confirmed Martha's reservation, through a friend, of 5 bags of RBC and a bag of apheresis from Red Cross to be picked up on Monday afternoon. 

I got a call from Mon that he was able to get me 3 bags of RBC as well. 

We are down now to 1 bag of RBC and we are all set for the cardiologist's requirement. I still do not know if the thoracic cardiovascular surgeon will require more. Will know that tomorrow. 

Thank you. Given a chance, even if I'm scared of needles, I will pay back by donating blood and will encourage my family to as well. 

Checking out

We are checking out this year on our wedding anniversary, and not checking in like the other years. 

We can go home now. Nuclear scan is no longer necessary. 

Had lunch at 1618 and got a cake from the inlaws. 

Did my grocery so I can leave some food for my kids during Omar's procedure.
