Ashton’s Medical Devices

Update posted by Lizanda Nel On Nov 01, 2019

It is with a heavy heart that I need to let everyone know that Ashton and his father passed away on the 20th of September. Thank you for everyone support and prayers so far and for respecting our privacy as we mourn a beloved husband and son. Sorry for not updating sooner but the last few weeks have been hell.

Hi

Thank you so much for everything you have done for our little man, and all the support and encouragement!


I have made the decision to take a break as I was burning out, but will be back soon. I hope you understand.


We have experienced our share of challenges since I posted last, but it isn't Ashton or his health! We could not be happier with his progress, as slow as it may feel sometimes!


Ashton is doing well, and even lost his first two teeth!


Our list of items we need for him just keeps growing, and any/all support is greatly appreciated! He is currently home with a nanny, which is another expense that adds on, and we need to get him a standing frame and gait trainer, as well as a bathing solution. As I am sure you can understand this is HUGE costs.


Due to our economy being in the position it is in, we are faced with retrenchments, drop in salary earnings, exchange rate difficulties... The list goes on! Any and all help is greatly appreciated!


I will try to post more often and get back into social media networking soon.

Thank you to everyone for the support so far!

Some great news about Ashton devices!

We have managed to secure a second hand wheelchair and had this adapted to suit his requirements. It is an ongoing upgrade, which will grow with him. Unfortunately we do not have a way to transport it, so for the time being it will be used indoors.


Ashton still requires a way to transport outside of the house, where the bug or similar will come in.


We have managed to get the wheelchair done with funds raised off line, and well on the way to get his afo/splints!


Thank you for your support thus far, cannot wait to to cross more off the list!

Thank you very much for the support to date! It is highly appreciated!

We are making good progress towards Ashton’s splints, but the list keeps growing!

We now also need to purchase a wheelchair, which might replace the Bug stroller, or at the least push it to the back of the queue. We also had recent word from the medical aid that they are no longer paying for Ashton’s physiotherapy and occupational therapy… a true blow indeed as this is crucial for his development and is a necessity. We can, however, reapply for therapy in a few months, so fingers crossed for then.

Thank you once again for all your continued support!
