From Joni Dizon
I can see 3 scenarios kung bakit bumaligtad si Lacanas and all of them he has a lot to gain and nothing to lose. He is a kidney failure patient who had hemodialysis before he had kidney transplant.
Dialysis nurse ako and before I left the Philippines, 1 session of dialysis cost around P8000 x 3/week =P24,000/week +laboratories, mga gamot etc. So dapat ang hawak niyang pera ay atleast P30,000/week. Siyempre, mas mahal na ngayon yan. Kidney transplant cost atleast P1 million pesos .
Then he has to take anti-rejection tablets which depending on the brand can cost atleast P100 each , some brands need to be taken 2x/day. Pero hindi lang naman yun ang gamot na iinumin, madami pa.
So atleast P1000 per day ang gastos nya sa gamot. Then lagi pa yang magpapacheck up then bloodtest etc. I believe he is now retired? Yang pension nya kulang pa yan sa medical needs nya. So need nya money. That’s my first scenario.
2nd , might be his kidney transplant is failing which mean he has to go back to dialysis . So again , need nya ng pera.
3rd, his kidney transplant is failing , his prognosis is bad because of his age and he is dying . So wala na syang paki kahit mamatay sya pero he is thinking wala syang maiiwang pera sa pamilya nya since lahat nga ng pera nya ay naubos na sa sakit nya. So again it came down to money. Mixed feelings ako dito.
Galit ako kasi bumaliktad sya dahil sa pera at sinisiraan nya si Duterete. Pero as a renal nurse I can understand how he needs to kapit sa patalim. I have a patient before and she said kahit ibenta nya kaluluwa nya ke satanas me pampadialysis lang , she will do it. It seems like binenta na ni Lascanas ang kaluluwa nya ke satanas aka Trillianes/LP
