Our friend from texas had a stroke and is incoherent at cebu doc's

Recommended Posts

jtmwatchbiz

our friend and forum member J.D. from texas had a stroke suddenly yesterday and is in cebu doc's hospital. unfortunately he is incoherent and we are scrambling to try and arrange his finances and get him the care he needs. he is a USA air force veteran and has a good pension from his working for years in texas as a crane operator and construction, along with substantial savings but it is taking alot of red tape to get access to his funds by his son in texas (who we also know personally and is in cebu often).

 

we will probably need a good local lawyer who can draw up the power of atty papers and some other things so his son in texas can get access to and send money for the hospital. we also need some members who are familiar with veterans stuff and banking to help if possible. he is in ICU and so far us and his son are covering his bills but it's piling up quick.

 

please if possible pm me or click on my watch ad link to reply to me via cell or email rather than post suggestions here publicly and thanks!

no, that is the purpose of my post.

My lawyer, a well respected guy around the traps and retired last year as a Provincial Prosecutor and a very smart and honest guy from my association with him, and just barely missed being made a judge last year, is available to help folks. Being retired and the Govt still not releasing his lump sum payment and monthly pension, he survives on cases he takes on for folks, without a real office, and does not charge exhorbitant rates like many.

This just had me quickly checking my wallet to make sure I still have my Health Insurance Card available, in case I am incoherent following an accident or something like this.

 

It's still there. It really is amazing how expensive ICU can be, with no telling how long you might be in it.

 

Hope he gets better soon.

you know there are ways if you are married and have total trust your pension goes to a us bank like wells fargo... you set up a repetitive wire between wells and a dollar acct in the pi and on the PHONE with a pin number which means your wife can do it a person can wire bank to bank any amount you have in the acct.. cost on the wells side is 9 dollars any amount..

One member here, who lives in Consolacion said that his medical safety net was a high dollar credit card. If someone is dealing with JDs family for money, it is imperative that he get the proper medications and attention soon. Or there will be permanent damage. And another stroke could happen.

What I'm trying to say is somebody close to him that is in Cebu produce (temporary loan) a credit card to get him medical help. Probably too late now. "They say" the first 4 hours are critical.

JD got the critical care he needed right away, and is still in cebu doctor's hospital. there was no interruption in his care as we have been covering the costs, and now we are making headway with his son in texas to help with the funds to continue the care of JD. he was transferred out of ICU yesterday and will remain in a regular hospital room until tuesday when our specialist will be arriving from abroad to examine him and map out the next steps in his care and possible therapy if indeed he can improve enough to be coherent.

 

i'll post more updates as they develop and thanks everyone for the concern and best wishes for JD.

GOD BLESS you for looking out for JD and taking an important step. He might pull through this.

Thanks for doing the obvious.

That is the one thing about Health care in the Phils. YOUR emergency is not THEIR emergency. (from my last thread "No Money YOU DIE" )

I seriously hope and pray this all works out.

 

Wow!! That is an unbelievably scary situation and one that I for one didn't even think of about.

Thanks to the incredible intervention by Fred and Janice, without whose assistance this might have read a very different way.

 

I wonder what the cost implications have been so far? It would be useful to those members who are 'self-insuring' and a rough indication of what they should have available in their 'war-chest' fund.

Seen J.D at 0700 seems to be improving, would not smile at me but gave a smile to the female Doc. who was checking him.

Smiling at the girls is always a good sign.

 

Wishing him a speedy recovery.
