Hi Dear Followers, 

Sorry I didn’t have time to update Grace’s blog more often because am working everyday from home. 

As the usual more and more bills are being paid, 179.533 pesos 4039,49 USD is the last bill we paid for the dental implant. We have each week two sessions of Rehab for Grace’s leg and wrist which cost 600pesos which cost 27 dollars a week. These costs add up to the rents cost that I am paying from my salary, the rent in Canada and the rent here plus bills here and in Canada. She cannot walk still correctly but it’s getting there. She is getting back slowly her weigh that she lost during a soup diet for more than a month.

We are awaiting the visa, We still didn’t purchased the tickets yet it is going to be more than 3500 $USD.

Thank you for helping us.

Regards,

Houssam

Dear followers, i had the chance to take a picture of Grace’s leg when i was changing her dressings. She still cannot move her leg.

Sorry everybody I was very busy these last few days with my work, I work remotely 10 hours a day. Grace is recuperating at home awaiting two more surgeries I paid the entire bills from the hospital and also the bills on the follow ups with her doctors. When I was changing the dressings on her arm I took a picture. Grace cannot move her arm nor her leg yet, she lost weigh because she is on a soup diet since she cannot open her mouth.

Grace still needs your help. Please spread the word for our blog “http://operationsavinggrace.tumblr.com/”. We spent a total of 10 000 USD dollars on the medical bills. We were lucky we had help from all the followers, I couldn’t have done it alone. The journey is not yet done unfortunately, we still need help for the upcoming operations. I am also going tomorrow to check for Canada papers in order to fill in the forms for bringing her quickly to Canada.

This is for all Grace’s fans. When I was looking for her identification papers to make her passport, I came across her graduation book, where all the students mention their favorite quotes. I let you discover Grace’s quote :)

Important update on grace’s health:

Sorry everybody for the 2 days disappearance, I had many things to do. Grace’s operation was good Grace was discharged for 5 weeks before receiving the two new surgeries to remove the implant in the wrist and also to remove the metal strings on her mouth which are fixing the fracture of the chin and therefore starting to repair the teeth.

As you know the doctors fees are charged only upon discharge, so here is the total of only the surgeons fees: 219917.42 php ($5014.12 USD). In 5 weeks she has two more operations, so we are not losing guard and trying not to be too optimistic in regards to finances. There will be more costs. We think we will manage it with the amounts we have but cannot be too sure . 

The catch:
Since the filipino banks allow only 20 000 ($456USD) ATM withdraw limit
per day, That leaves me only the following options.

take out 456 USD from my account and also send 980$ via western union from my iphone app of ScotiaBank directly to myself in the philippines. So since I can send only 980$ per day on western union and only 456$ per day on ATM, It will take me more than 5 days to pay the entire amount before I can get her out. Luckily I talked to the billing management and they take the maximum amount I can pay per day and they assign it to each doctor the way they judge fit. Here are the bills and receipts. FYI: on top is the hospital fees and on the bottom the doctors fees. 

She is now in the house very happy and safe. She was very sick of the hospital room.
