Help Chrissie Recover from Schizophrenia

Update posted by Alwyn Lau On Jan 02, 2020

Fyi, Chrissie will be under-going electro-convulsive therapy tomorrow (Friday, 2/1/20). This treatment, which involves running a low-voltage current through the brain, will take between 1 and 2 weeks.

Given the poor progress of the medication she was on the past week, doctors have recommended this treatment (which is assured to be safe and has worked on many occasions). Let's pray and hope that at least some progress can be attained.

She will still need to be transferred to a home after the ECT.

Also, I have stopped the campaign for now, as the funds have far exceeded the requirements. Again, me and my family are most thankful to everyone who has contributed.

Update 10/1/20: Chrissie has been moved to Shal Home Care from the hospital this morning. We expect her to be there for at least a month. During the first 2 weeks (from now till CNY, more or less), the place discourages visitors (except for close family). I’m really hoping that the classes, the therapies, the activities, the outings, etc will complement the medication in improving her condition. The next update will probably be in late Jan. Thanks again for all your support. FYI, I have settled all the hospital bills and made the first payments for the home (total is slightly north of RM6k), all thanks to the funds from the donations. Whatever healing Chrissie receives will be in no small part thanks to your support. Thank you again for helping her.

Update (7/1/20): Echo thinggy suggests **not** doing the ECT to avoid risk to Chrissie’s heart. As such, doc has decided to continue with medication alone, perhaps even use different pills (I just bought a weekly pack from the pharma for RM16). Likelihood is she’ll be transferred to the special home by the end of the week or by early next week. I’ll pop an update the moment she moves, but for now she’s still in the ward. Chrissie seems to prefer the porridge over the ’Western food’ and really enjoys seeing visitors. Naturally, she’s a little sad at not being able to go home yet, so I appreciate your help (should you visit) to gently persuade her of the value of medication. Note: The decision to put her in a home for a few weeks is based on the fact that she’ll refuse to take her pills otherwise. Thank you again for your support and prayers.

For some reason I’m unable to add an update, so I’ll leave them here instead. 3/1/20 ECT was postponed because anastheticist heard "murmur" in Chrissie’s heart. Not expected to be a major problem, but "echo" treatment will be used to confirm everything is ok before ECT proceeds. Echo to happen on Monday; assuming all good, ECT to follow on Wed (or, if fortunate, Mon itself).

Dear everyone, I am very very moved by the influx of support for my wife. I was, frankly, hoping for just a few hundred dollars but the amount has exceed expectations completely, and now my family’s cup does "runneth over". My dearest prayer now is that my wife will be back on her feet (so to speak) as soon as possible, knowing that when that time happens it will be in no small part due to your support. Thank you again. Alwyn, Nicholas and Melody
