I am a father of my 2y 7mo old son Theodor Valach. Theodor has unusual stiffness of the muscles - spastic quadriplegia. Spastic quadriplegia is a specific type of spastic cerebral palsy that refers to difficulty in controlling movements in the arms and the legs. Teo is still lying child. He can not turnover or sit. We have to do a lot of rehabilitaions in next year and thats why I am tryng to get fundraising.
Our story (how it started):
We had normal pregnancy, the day of birth was set to 6.6.2016. We decided to bear in next country Austria - we hoped it is better than in our country Slovakia. The check in hospital on 20.5.2016 was said by doctor, that placenta is abnormal is little damaged because child is big, so we need to make control everytime. But next check on 25.5. the another doctor has denied this situation (placenta is normal... OK). The last ultrasound check was made on 6.6. Next two checks 10.6. and 14.6. was made only CTG (cardiocography). LAst chcek we was talking that something is not ok, we cant feel the baby. (every evening he was moving but last evening he was not). The doctor just say everything id fine, he is only preparing for birth. You can go home. Maybe is sleeping (Doctor made unpleasant nudge of belly - maybe this was the time, when was the placenta broken). CTG was fine so we went home. I went to work. After 30 minutes my wife was calling she is bleeding. I didnt believe this, we was in hospital in few minutes. So I rode from work to home, took wife and went to hospital. When they saw bleeding, they made ultrasound and urgently made C-section. It was some problems but everything is fine they said after Csection. I had my boy in my hands and believe everything is fine. it was cca 15:15. Cca 20:30 when, I leave hospital. Doctors came and take baby to some near village for intensive care. They said something is wrong, they saw stiffnes in babies hands and better will be in intensive care. At morning Theodors was transfered to hospital in Wien. It was strange, next days we have only little infos about Theodor. My wife was transfered to Wien on third day. We just knew, Theo was stabilized. In these days was his brain damaged because he had so strong cramps, that oxygene not goes to brain. After 3 weeks in Wien was my son and wife released from hospital with words. Everything is fine, in 3 months we recommended to visit a physiotherapeut. But nothing was fine and we didnt know it. Theo had high muscle tone all the time and we didnt know it. You must make some theraphy from birth when this occurs, but noone inform us. We started theraphy in his 3 months.
All of past threatment was funded by Theodor's grandparents, We made a lot of threatments in Slovakia, but Theodor has insurance in Wien so all threatments in Slovakia (because it is better to understand and many ways to threat as in Astria) was paid by us.
We started threatment with method of Vojta:
When he was 1y 3m we flown to Beijing and then by train to Tianjin, where we absolve 3months in hospital. We made complex threatment of traditional chinese medicine. Massages named TUINA was really painfull. (video: massage1 and massage2)
And next was threatments with other physiotherapeuts, and alternative medicine injections in Egypt.
It is impossible to continue funding only by them. It was a heavy financial burden for them. That is why I am using Gogetfunding.com to be possible financing next 2-3 years of Theodors rehabilitations and medical devices. (I am calculating threatments cost minimum of 12.000€ for one year).
I want to do best for Theodor, I believe his brain can do it once!
Now is still time to make all of differently threatments because brain in this age is still learning new ways.
❤ My thanks goes to all of you! ❤
