My naam is Carlin en ek is getroud met Eben Basson.

My name is Carlin and I am married to Eben Basson.


Eben het sy eie klein handyman besigheid in Stellenbosch. Ons is ook sangers en musiekante en tree op onder die naam van Premonition die singende egpaar. Ons is woonagtig in Stellenbosch.

Eben has his own small handyman business in Stellenbosch. We are also singers and musicians and we are performing under the name Premonition the singing couple. We are residing in Stellenbosch in South Africa.

Ons verhaal:

Einde Maart 2020 - maand het my man drie groot hartaanvalle na mekaar gehad. hy is opgeneem in Ongevalle in Somerset hospitaal. Hy het vier hartomleidings gehad tesame met n aortaklepvervanging.op die 2de April 2020.

Our Story:

At the end of March 2020 my husband had three massive heart attacks after each other. he was admitted to Hospital immediately and was stabilized. it was confirmed that he had these heart attacks and that there was damage to his heart. after a very lengthy stay it was diagnosed that four of the main arteries around his heart needs to be replaced and that his aorta heart valve did not work properly. Once this diagnose was made he had to wait another three weeks before the doctors could operate on him. On the 2nd of April 2020 he underwent 4 heart bypasses and his heart valve was also replaced with a animal valve.

Lockdown was toe al aan die gang en ek kon hom gladnie sien of besoek tydens die tyd wat hy in die hospitaal was nie. Na drie weke in die hospitaal kon hy huistoe kom en herstel en ons het gebid dat hy sou herstel.

Our country was already in lock-down when he had the heart attacks and that prevented me from been with him or even to be allowed into the hospital to see and be with him. I was not allowed to visit him. He came home about three weeks later to recuperate but that did not happen.

Dinge het egter nie so gewerk nie en hy het net al hoe sieker geword. Weens covid en sy siekte kon en mag hy ook nie gewerk het nie en die stres en bekommernisse het begin oor sy gesondheid wat nie beter word nie en ons finansiele situasie. Ons het gedoen wat ons kon om te probeer oorleef en my man het heeldag gele, hy kon niks doen nie en sy liggaam wou nie meer saam werk nie.

Things however just got worse by the day and his condition deteriorated. Due to the Covid and lock-down together with his illness he could not do any physical work and been self employed meant that there was no income. His medical position, together with the economical situation and stress just made things even worse. We tried to cope and do everything we needed just to have food on the table and survive. In this process my husband got worse

Tydens my man se besoek aan die hartspesialis in Junie 2020 het hulle vasgestel dat daar n groot probleem is en dat iets nie reg is nie, na sonars en Angiogramme het hulle agter gekom dat sy hartklep erger lek as voor die operasie. Na baie kopkrap en vele meer mediese uitgawes en spesialiste het hulle tot die slotsom gekom dat sy liggaam die dierlike klep (varkklep) wat hy ontvang het op 2 April, deur sy liggaam verwerp was en dat dit die rede is vir die lekkasie. Niemand kan vir ons se hoekom dit gebeur het nie en ons wag nou vir die resultate van die klep en bloedmonsters.

During my husband's follow up with his Heart surgeon in June 2020, they established that there was a bigger problem, after several Sonars, Angiograms it was established that the new heart valve did not work and only allowed 30 precent blood through and the blood was seeping through the sides of the valve and was leaking worse than before the operation. no one could understand this and it did not make any sense to anybody. he was referred to another heart surgeon and the results was the same. He was then immediately admitted again in hospital for further tests. During the operation on the 2nd April they used a part of a pig as a valve and all the doctors could resort to was that his body rejected the valve - reason unknown

Teen hierdie stadium was ons al finansieel geruineer en al ons spaargeld was op. Weens Covid kon ons nog steeds nie werk nie en omdat hy vir homself werk was daar absoluut geen inkomste nie. die banke wou ons ook nie help nie omdat ons n klein besigheid gehad het. ons kon ook geen lenings op ons name doen nie. Ek doen naaldwerk en maak klere vir n inkomste maar dit is nie genoeg om ons maadelikse kostes te dek nie. Ons as sangers kon ook nie optree en op daardie manier n ekstra inkomste verdien nie. slotsom: ons het alles verloor wat ons gehad het asook ons huisvesting.

At this time-period we have already been in major financial trouble due to covid and the fact that we could not get any income and have used all our savings just to stay alive. During Covid he could not work and been self- employed meant that there was no resources, we approached the banks for assistance but they refused to help due to the fact that we were self- employed. I do needlework and make and design clothing for clients but the monies I made from same was not enough to cover our monthly expenses. Being a band that had regular performances we lost that income as well because all our venues were closed during covid. neither could Eben sing due to the operation. In short we had absolute no income and we lost everything including the place where we stayed.

Met die hulp van vriende en familie kon ons egter weer bietjie op die been kom, Eben kon egter nie met sy hart werk nie en ons het verskeie werk verloor.

With the help of our Friends and family we were able to try and start over again, things went slow but business started picking up. Eben was still suffering from his heart

Eben is weer opgeneem in die hospitaal en het weereens n tweede klepvervanging in een jaar gehad op 8 Desember 2020. Hy is tans nog in ICU en het n nuwe hartklep ontvang. Weens die covid kan ek hom nog steeds nie sien nie.

Eben was admitted again on the 8th December 2020 in hospital to have his second open heart surgery for the year. The heart surgeon decided to do another heart valve transplant but this time use a valve coming from cattle and remove the valve which the body rejected. He is currently still in ICU and the heart valve has been replaced. due to the Covid I am still not allowed to see him

Ons is finansieel heeltemal opgedroog en het geen ander keuse as ons te wend na die goedheid van ons vriende, familie en kennisse nie. Ons het geen idee hoe ons die dag van more oorleef nie. ons sidder om te dink aan al die mediese uitgawes wat ons vir die tweede keer die jaar sal moet probeer betaal. met die huidige situasie in ons land en die Feesgety het ons geen inkomste nie en ook geen fondse om ons daaglikeste uitgawes te dek nie. Ons besef almal het n slegte 2020 gehad, maar ons sal nie ophou bid vir krag en hulp van Bo nie.

We are in dire strait Financially and all our savings has been used up. we had no alternative but to take our pride and approach, friends and family to assist us. We do not have any idea how we are going to cover our monthly expenses, buy food, medicine or survive. We have no idea what tomorrow will bring with the current situation in our country as well as the Festive season coming up and we will not be able to do any work once again. We realize that the hole world was hit by Covid and that everyone is suffering but we will not stop praying for help to get through this time. We have given up because we cannot do this alone anymore.

Enige donasie sal baie welkom wees om te help om sodoende sy medies te kan betaal en ook dan om ons huur te kan betaal en kos op die tafel te kan he.

Any donation will be very welcome and appreciated, no matter how small, to try and help to cover his medical costs and also help us just pay our rent and have some food on the table

We want to thank you for the donation that you are prepared to make. We are extremely grateful for any kind of help as well as food parcels.

Die les wat ons geleer het was maak nie saak wat in U lewe gebeur nie, met geloof is enige iets moontlik. in die tyd het ek en Eben besef hoe skielik alles van ons weggevat kan word en hoe nietig ons is. die tyd het ons net nog nader aan mekaar gebring.

The lesson that we have learned in 2020 is, no matter what happen in your life, with Faith is nothing impossible and that have been keeping us standing for the last few months. We also realized how quickly everything can be taken away from you and how "small" we are. today you are strong and healthy and tomorrow you can barely walk or breath. This difficult time have also brought us as husband and wife closer together
