“‼️UPDATE #5 ON JOHN REGALA'S CURRENT CONDITION (as of August 7, 2020)
Yesterday, John underwent arthrocentesis (used a needle to aspirate fluid from the right knee). Doctors submitted the fluid for tests to check if knee is infected or not. If test results show that his knee is not infected, John can receive steroids for joint pain.
John is currently still taking antibiotics.
For John's pain, he is undergoing pain management on board with anesthesiologists taking care of the pain medications that can be given to him as of the moment.
When doctor made his rounds this morning, these were his observations:
Awake; slurred speech (from previous stroke)
Pain bilateral knee
No fever; no cough
No difficulty of breathing no chest pain
No abdominal pain
No jaundice (yellow coloring of the skin)
Presently, we are awaiting remaining tests from the fluid taken from John's knee to determine if it is safe to administer steroids.
Also, according to John's doctor, his liver is stable. Severe gout is also one of John's problems right now.
Awaiting further updates and if (and when) he is scheduled for more tests
Please keep on praying for John's health and recovery.
We will continue to update everyone on John's condition and hopeful improvement.
We are extremely thankful to everyone -- friends and even strangers -- who reached out, sent prayers, and donated (in cash and in kind) to help John get better. John sends his love and gratitude to all of you."
