Abri Needs Your Help

Abri Needs Your Help

Personal message

My name is Stephanie Wohlters and I am raising funds for my boyfriend Abri Kuhn. He is 31 years old and lives in Johannesburg South Africa.

I am raising funds for Abri who is in ICU in critical condition fighting for his life. The last 24 hours have been surreal and scary. 

Abri started to feel unwell before the weekend with what he thought was symptoms of a migraine. He then developed a very bad fever on the weekend and on Monday he went to the doctor and received antibiotics and pain medication. He went to the doctor again on Wednesday, he had extreme neck pain and headaches, he could not eat and was extremely weak and had diarrhea. The doctor tested him for Meningitis and Covid-19 and advised he had a bacterial infection but did not pick up the underlying problem that had developed or was busy developing. 

Unfortunately for Abri, this meant that he was still getting worse and not better. In the early hours of Thursday morning, Abri's blood pressure dropped to dangerous levels and he passed out whilst trying to go to the bathroom and had an extremely bad fall and smashed his head in the night. At some point before or after the fall, he lost his eyesight. I rushed him to the nearest hospital and they immediately took him into casualty. After doing blood tests and scans he was diagnosed with Sepsis and renal failure (acute kidney failure) he had signs of a possible heart attack or heart strain. 

Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition caused by the body's response to an infection. The body normally releases chemicals into the bloodstream to fight infection. Sepsis occurs when the body's response to these chemicals is out of balance, triggering changes that can damage multiple organ systems. Abris blood pressure had dropped to such low levels that after emergency, in vein drip treatment, to try get his blood pressure up and out of danger failed, they started with adrenalin treatment.

Unfortunately, owing to financial constraints due to the Covid 19 lockdowns, Abri had had to cancel his hospital plan. Since he was in a critical and immediate life threatening condition, I made the decision to have him immediately be treated at Olivdale Clinic rather than take the chance of him deteriorating further in delays in getting treatment at the nearest government hospital (Helen Joseph).
The costs for private care are very high (especially Intensive Care) and because Abri has no medical aid assistance these costs have to be paid upfront before any treatment is commenced. Fortunately I was able to pay for the initial treatment and the 5 days that the doctors predicted as the minimum time period of Abri's treatment in the ICU unit and as such I have signed reponsiblity for all his medical costs.

I have started this fund as I believe that Abri’s best fighting chance to survive this will be to keep him at the Olivedale clinic and to pay for whatever medication or specialist service he may require until such time they are happy to release him. This may mean he will need to be there for longer than 5 days. These funds can help save his life and give him the best chance for recovery and any medical attention he will need, not only now but in the months to come.

All funds raised will go towards Abri's medical costs.
