Valve Replacement for my Heart Warrior-Jared Vince

Jared Vince Gile is the youngest among our 4 kids. He was born with a rare congenital heart defect, TVA (Tricuspid Valve Atresia), ASD (Atrial Septal Defect), VSD(Ventricular Septal Defect), DORV (double outlet right ventricle), Malposed Great Arteries,  and was advised to undergo an open heart surgery. Last December 2011 we underwent "s/p bilateral Glenn shunt" performed by Dr. Karl Reyes and then to complete the process we got the Fontan Operation on May 2015 by Doc Karl as well. 

After 5 years, since he is a growing boy, the mitral valve regurgitation which is part of his condition from the very start, went from Mild to being severe, creating collateral damages inside his body and harming the heart. 

At the moment, Doc Karl is in the US but still in constant communications with the Doctors that is handling Jared right now.  Last week we were rushed to The Medical City because he is experiencing uneasiness, slight tummy ache and checking his pulse rate, his BPM is fluctuating. We were in Pedia-ICU for 2 days and from the status of his condition, he is getting frequent Premature Ventricular Contractions. It was bad.

On Dec 14, we went through Coil Embolization of Collateralsin PGH (so we can save some costs), Through the help of donations and friends and family's extending help. It was a happy battle for us, Jared was feeling good and better after a week of healing at home.  During this time, Doctor Cheng expressed that the procedure done, was helpful yes, but still, we have an outstanding problem to deal with, his Leaky Valve. 

Given the complexity of his surgery (Valve Replacement), and affordability, the most reasonable hospital we can do the Open Heart Surgery is PGH, the rest of the hospitals with really top of the line facility is way too expensive.  We have a schedule of January 26th and our cost Estimate is PhP900,000 . According to Doc Cheng, once we get past this 3rd Open Heart, we'd be able to buy more years for Jared, 15 or 20 more if we are really lucky. I'm holding on this, for my boy.

Friends and family, we are so grateful with the overwhelming support we receive,   I am again knocking at your heart doors to please help us continue to raise funds for Jared, spread it to your friends and keep us in your prayers that he'd be strong enough to endure this phase in his life.

I had a sit down session with Jared and asked him his thoughts on this surgery. He is fighting for a better life, I cannot resist that, We will have to do everything.

Thank you and God Bless your generous hearts.
