Mga mare, I'm asking for your prayers. My nephew died yesterday during the flood. He had the worst asthma attack and yesterday was the last straw. I have asthma as well and I know how hard it is to fight for your breath during severe attacks. He had to be carried on a neighbor's back because there was knee-deep flood on the streets. As he was dying, his older brother was stuck somewhere in Bulacan, stranded, and he had to hitchhike on a military truck just to get home. I was also in Manila trying to get past the flood in Recto.
He had to wait for the funeral service until 11pm because it was also stuck in San Juan. At last, arrived home this morning at 6am. I hope his journey is over now.
My nephew has two daughters, the older only two yrs old, and the baby just turned one last month. I don't know how they will make it, maybe he'll guide his babies to safety. Nevertheless I'll be there for them, I am godmother to the younger child.
Pls mga mare, I'm asking for your prayers. Thanks.
