Help my family

Update posted by Verushka Weyers On Nov 21, 2020

My kids and husband have been sick for the past week so I have been unable to see my dad. Hoping to go tomorrow. My mother was there and he was responding to her but when I spoke with the nurse it seems that he has moments where he stops breathing for himself and is back on full ventilation. My feeling is that he is getting weaker and his body is giving up. 🥺 my next action is to get my children to see him one last time in person. Going to be a hard sell with his dr’s but I’m going to try.

Haven’t been able to see my dad since I started work on Wednesday but the nurses say he is doing well and is trying his hardest to walk. He is still very weak but he is trying and that’s all that matters. Hoping I’ll get to see him next week after my shifts end and before I start my overtime.

Today was a good day, his infection count is way down and he sat in a chair today and was smiling. Days like these are what we pray for and hopefully he will get stronger and get to come home.

My father has again gotten another infection. He is so tired and sleeping all the time. I cannot be with him when I work as due to COVID-19 they want me to come home and then go see him, which is financially not possible with petrol and unrealistic as I have kids and when would I get time to sleep. My mother says He doesn’t have the energy to communicate. My heart breaks for him and I hate seeing him like this.
I am still trying to find a suitable physiotherapist that can work with my father that is ventilated and so weak. I didn’t realize it would be so hard.
The fundraising campaign is slow and taking time to build up to get enough financial support to get things started. Feeling a bit despondent and depressed today.

Been sick and not able to see my dad. My mother asked around and got rides to go see him. He seems a bit better but still can’t get him off the ventilator. Awaiting on the dr as he wants to see us but no appointment has been made yet by him.

Went to visit my father today-he seems to have another infection and couldn’t wake. He is also struggling to breathe at present. I just sat and held his hand, just wanted him to know I was there and was giving him all my love.
