Nanay was discharged from the Philippine Heart Center today. The cardiologist who performed her coronary angiogram advised us to lessen Nanay’s physical activities as her heart is already weak. The doctor also asked us when we would like to schedule Nanay’s bypass surgery, but we said we don’t have the resources yet. While he offered a special medical package for the procedure, the amount is beyond all of us siblings can afford. That’s because we all live paycheck to paycheck, and each has his/her own family obligations. Times like these make me wish I were rich.
