Moving On To The Next Phase of Ethan’s Journey...with faith in our good God in the midst of uncertainties.
On Sunday, February 7, baby Ethan together with his parents Geoff and Tina are set to fly to Singapore for the next phase of his journey. The specialist doctors in the Asian Centre for Liver Diseases & Transplantation in Singapore will be assessing his health situation --- doing a battery of tests on him to evaluate and prepare him for the liver transplantation.
Tina, the most likely liver donor candidate, will also go through a set of tests and screening to determine if she is fit to donate part of her liver to Ethan. Tina was given the clearance and was recommended by the doctors in Manila to be the liver donor after a series of tests. Geoff was disqualified because of his lung condition. Ansen Li, a Singaporean friend of the family, was also disqualified because of his liver condition.
The family is now preparing for their trip and for the possible liver transplantation soon. Please pray for their emotional, physically and spiritual preparation. Pray too for strength as they attend to the many details related to this trip and process of transplantation.
The family still needs around 3 Million pesos for the the transplant and after care. Pray that God will pour in the needed finances for this process. Pray that God will move in the hearts of the decision makers in the foundations we are approaching...for favorable decisions and significant amounts of money to be given to Ethan’s transplant.
How is Ethan doing? He had a fever which has already subsided. His tummy is getting bigger; and hernia is back. He will be seeing another doctor before they fly to Singapore.
