[Thank you Everyone, I stopped this funding because I think My wife Sydney's treatment cost can be covered by current donation and my saving already.
At this moment, Sydney is planning to stay in the hospital until the end of February. So I could calculate the rough cost .
Again, Thank you so much for your support for my family.
I can not thank enough. ]
I am Tetsuya, husband of Sydney Stampher.
Sydney just gave birth to baby Layla a few days ago, but then I noticed something was wrong.
(This Sydney was totally fine. But She started screaming after 7~8 hrs in the early morning.)
3 days after giving a birth, Sydney started screaming suddenly and every hours I could tell my lovely wife was loosing herself. Sydney was holding our baby Layla with full of Love just some hours ago, but Sydney started not being able to recognize own baby and husband.
The Doctor confirmed this sickness is called "Postpartum Psychosis". This disorder is very rare and only affects 1 in 1000 new mothers. The baby must be kept away from Sydney due to the terrible symptoms of this sickness.
( Sydney started seeing Hallucinations)
I couldn't believe why this is happening to her, we were really happy to welcome our baby together and ready for enjoying it.
I was exhausted to holding her on the bed because Sydney sees Hallucination and can not recognize the boundary between Hallucination and Reality and She couldn't not sleep at all even though She must sleep to get a rest and push this sickness away. She suddenly woke up every a few hours and started getting up or talking.
However, One time early morning, she shake me and woke me up. She was looking at me but suddenly burst in tears with saying "I'm sorry!! I love you!! Why!? Why!?". I thought She came back but She suddenly "Shut down" (like Robot with switch OFF), and I noticed Sydney is really trying to come back and struggling.
I was so glad she still understand me.
The Doctor judged Sydney needs immediate Psychiatry Treatment ASAP, and We tried finding the Hospital, but many hospitals declined because - Language Issue, - Hospital is being really careful to accept new patients due to current COVID situation, - Sydney should have both Maternity and Psychiatry treatment at the same time (many hospital has only one of them). But in the end One hospital decided accepting Sydney.
I was frustrating for all the procedures we had to get through because I could tell Sydney started not recognizing me even though I was telling her how much I love her and I am with her.
However, the Doctor suddenly told me that "You have 15 mins to say Good Bye before She will go to the Closed wards for Psychiatric patients". I was panicked but I told her everything I wanted to tell her even though she didn't respond.
(The last place where I had to say Bye to my love right before Sydney had to go to the closed wards. I tried my best to smile at her and making her calm)
It was really heart breaking which just happened for past 4 days but Now Sydney is under treatment by Experts and I believe in Sydney, She will come back to me and our baby.
"Postpartum Psychosis" is rare mental sickness and the Doctor can not really tell how long she needs treatment, so I'm still calculating all the cost of treatment (Medicines, Taking daily care, Bed cost, and so on).
Of course, Sydney is my wife who I love the most and I was preparing for any emergency case (for giving a birth) so I am capable and willing to pay for her, but I didn't expect this much happened so I really appreciate if you could help for me and Syd to getting rid of financial concerns until getting through this.
-2021, Jan, 25th update
I got the doctor's feedback that Sydney needs to stay in the hospital until the doctor is sure Sydney is fully rested and recovered that is [End of February] .
So I make it short the hospitalization period till the end of February. (45 days from Jan 15th- Feb 28th)
<1 USD= about 100 JPY>
|Items||Cost||Total for 45 days||Status|
|Emergency Hospitalization and deposit||200,000 JPY||200,000 JPY||Paid|
|Foods during hospitalizations.||1,800 JPY / Day||81,000 JPY||-|
|Rental for daily supplies.||1,100 JPY / Day||49,500 JPY||-|
|Psychiatry Treatment 195,000 JPY
(650,000 JPY x 30% by Health Insurance.)
|195,000 JPY / Month||292,500 JPY||-|
|Bed Cost||5,000 JPY / Day||225,000 JPY||-|
|Cost I pay||-348,000 JPY|
|Total I would need||500,000 JPY|
In case, hospitalization gets longer than I expected later on. I think it can be covered with current my saving and donations.
I also started researching for Subsidiary Aid, In case I could get approval and Treatment Cost decreased, I would like to use for Sydney's "After Care" after Sydney discharged from the hospital to make sure Sydney will not suffer the same Never Again.
Thank you to everyone who could donate even a small amount that will surely help relieve the pain.
