My Dearest Mother

Personal message

My name is Marian Theron and on the 25th of April 2019 our lives changed, I rushed my mom, Marietha Odendal, to hospital after phoning home and I could only hear her say that she can't breathe. She was admitted to Panorama hospital where they had to do an emergency triple bypass, she was in theatre for more than 6 hours and she lost a lot of blood. This was followed by lung problems, fungus in the blood and then a stroke.

My mom was in ICU for more than 3 weeks, it was very difficult seeing my mom like this, the stroke affected her left side and also her swallowing. They began with physio for her lungs and then walking and swallowing (starting on pureed food). She was then moved to a normal ward where the physio continued and was then moved to Cape Nurture Clinic for more than 3 weeks for further rehabilitation (physio, speech therapy and occupational therapy).

On the 14th of June, mom could come home, she is currently staying with my sister who is at home during the day until she is strong enough to come back to her own home where I also stay with my 11-year-old daughter. There is still a long road ahead with recovery and physio and a lot of medical expenses. Expenses to make moms life more comfortable. Moms car is also broken and I would like to have it fixed for her for when she is able to drive again.

I am raising funds for my mom's medical expenses, the amounts which are not covered by the medical aid.

Funds will help cover outstanding medical amounts, patients portion.

My mom is a pensioner and this year 24 December it will be 11 years since my dad passed away, she does not have the money to cover all the costs.

The funds will go towards medical expenses and making moms life more comfortable and fixing her car for her for when she is able to drive again.
