My hero was born on Dec.26, 2017 at Chong Hua Hospital, Fuente Osmeña, Cebu City Cebu. Locke Clement C.Mahilum the name of my handsome son. It has been 8 months since he came to our lives. I have gained so much weight and I have gone under the knife just to make sure he’ll come out safe and alive. God knows how much he means to us.
My son saved me from the midst of death. Last April 2017 I was diagnosed with Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) a disease characterized by a persistently elevated eosinophil count (≥ 1500 eosinophils/mm³) in the blood for at least six months without any recognizable cause, with involvement of either the heart, nervous system, or bone marrow, or its a boundary of having Leukemia in time.
I almost committed suicide reading the medical certificate. When then I felt sick again, I decided to visit my doctors , “YOUR HAVING A BABY” one of my doctors said. He is already 13 weeks of life and that there are possibilities of miscarriage or complications.
At the age of 23, I m already in a high risk pregnancy. I waited 4 long years to have him and hearing the situation made me depressed and scared. We need to have a weekly check ups to avoid infections. As he grows inside me the doctors found out that the baby is giving me healthy cells that normalize that blood illness that i have. TILL NOW I CANT THANK HIM ENOUGH for fighting and for saving my life I LOVE YOU SON.
