Antoni was injured at birth. My dr was on leave, his partner treated me. I was told to wait until my water broke, it didn't. Almost 42wks, my own dr admitted me to hospital. Caesarean was performed, Antoni was born. An intubation tube that was too big punctured Antoni’s respiratory tract, his lungs collapsed. During the trip from theatre to ICU his oxygen tube came loose, Antoni was without oxygen & there was no incubator!
Next morning, he was transported to Tygerberg Hospital, to insert a trach tube that allows him to breathe. Oxygen shortage caused vocal cord paralysis & brain damage. Doctors said we have to accept the fact that Antoni won't be able to live a normal life & we should make arrangements to put him in a place of care.
We decided to ask for assistance, any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Antoni needs occupational & speech therapy, horseback riding, swimming, all, which will benefit him immensely! Doctors are astonished with his progress. Neuro Physio is optimistic that Antoni will walk, but needs physio 3 x p/week. We can afford one a week @R170p/hour.
We are aiming to raise funds to buy a van for Antoni, to make travelling easier and safer. In order to prevent Antoni having more seizures, together with medication & supplements, a special diet has to be maintained (±R1850 p/month) My biggest dream is to be able to give Antoni the opportunity to be stimulated to his full potential.
