Derick Hanekom’s Stroke Recovery Fund

Update posted by Ann Turvey On Aug 19, 2021

We had our second to last physio session today. Derick has made a remarkable recovery and this could not have been possible without all your contributions and support.

I just want to thank everyone who donated, your contribution has been well spent.

Best wishes ❤

Derick is doing very well!

Today for the first time he attempted the very steep stairs from his apartment above, down to his shop below. Still a little wobbly, but he will progress with practice.🙂

The new handrails will be put to good use! This is the first time he has actually been able to get downstairs and look around the shop, so he is very happy! 👍🏽☺️👏🏽 And so are we!!!

Derick will still have 4 more physio sessions and he is well on the way to recovery.

Thank you to all who donated and sent messages of encouragement.

We are on the final stages of physiotherapy for Derick. He has made amazing progress and this could not have been possible without your support 😊

Today is a good day! Derick is doing so well and improving daily! 🙂 Derick can now shower unassisted with the rails for support and using his shower chair (shower rails and chair donated by Hara). We have bought rails for the stairs to give Derick more support when using the stairs. Going up the stairs is working out fine. With practice he will eventually manage going down the stairs without help. The stairs are very steep. A big thank you to Hara for arranging the installation of the railings for us. 🙂🙏

Today we had hand rails installed on the staircase and shower, this will be a huge benefit for Derick.

A big shout out to Hara and Phicha for arranging all the logistics and managing the installation.

Once again thank you for all your contributions, this would not have been possible otherwise.

Derick is doing very well and is continuing to make progress. He managed to get some staircase work done today and also had physio on his right arm.

Thanks once again for all your support!

Derick had his 11th physiotherapy session. Today’s focus was on dynamic standing and balance training. He can now stand up unaided from a sitting position. He is continuing to make excellent progress. Khun Tai has also started the process of helping Derick to learn to climb stairs again.

Derick's right arm is damaged, we are hoping that with therapy and time it will improve. At this stage it is too early to say what the prognosis will be. However his left arm is strong and fully functional.

Our aim is to have Derick walking unassisted with his cane and eventually climbing stairs in the next few therapy sessions.

Once again thank you to all who are involved in his recovery (you know who you are) 😊

Please continue to donate if you can.

Thanks

Thanks once again for your contributions however big or small, it all adds up.

Derick had his 9th physio session today and is making good progress. He even managed to negotiate a step onto the balcony!

Derick visited the hospital today for his first check up since his stroke. The doctors are extremely pleased with his progress.

We are continuing with physiotherapy 3 times per week at 2000BHT/session. It is important that we get him to walk unaided and to resume his daily activities as soon as practically possible.

Thank you to everyone who has donated and for all the good wishes. Please continue to donate if you can.

Thanks

Ann

Derik, it’s so heartening to see your face light up as you get stronger! You are an inspiration for many people to see and get hope. You now know you can and I’m happy for you.

I think we are all strapped for cash during this COVID time but, let's see if we can't all scrape together some money for Derek.
