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.

I don't know JD and that doesn't matter because he will be in our prayers. My family and I wish him the best for a speedy recovery.

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.

You can't do a power of attorney without it being notarized (by a US office/official). I doubt the guy at the consulate is going to notarize a random power of attorney if the guy isn't physically there. (i had him notarize a power of attorney for me, so my mom could sell my car).

 

Of course, assuming they are US accounts.. If they're local accounts, who knows if they'd give you (or whoever the POA is going to) access to local accounts. (Bank secrecy laws).

Not so hard if he is in the hospital and incapacitated, but usually the person asking is a spouse, child or parent.

I don't know how much problem a friend would have, but would imagine it would be a bit more complicated.
