LYDIA’S FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER

Update posted by Gerhardus Woest On Jun 17, 2018

We apologies if some of our backers thought we got "greedy." A while ago, I lowered the goal from $10,000 to $5,000. Yesterday I noted that I incorrectly typed $50,000.

We honestly appreciate every dollar, no matter how small or big a donation is.

Blessings.

Our hearts are filled with joy and gratefulness as God has given us a great little place to move into. We also want to thank all of you for your prayers and to those who contributed to Lydia's fundraising campaign thusfar. With the direct gift received from our dear sis, Gayle Page today, we have now reached more than 40% of our fundraising goal for Lydia.

Love and blessings to you all.

We are moving to a smaller place and hopefully the entire move will be finalzed by the end of the week.

With the funds we have raised thusfar, we are planning to take Lydia to a professional private neurologist soon after we are settled in at our new place, God willing.

We humbly ask for donations to our fundraising campaign, to enable us to then do blood tests, x-rays, ct scans etc or whatever the neurologist may require. Even a donation of $5 would be appreciated.

Blessings and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Lydia has a brand new cyst and it is massive. It covers the area of the upper buttocks, the tale bone and up her lower spine. Again, this could have been treated properly if our state hospital have given her proper antibiotics. We had no other option than to visit a private doctor who gave her a prescription for 1000mg antibiotic and it seems that he would have to cut it open tomorrow morning to drain it.

We are honestly battling to keep up with the costs involved every time. We humbly beg for donations, no matter how small.

Lydia's mother came visiting a little while ago. It was the first opportunity in nearly 5 years. Although Lydia was hampered by the wheelchair and constant pain and could not go onto the beaches close to where we live, we thank God and her mom, for the chances she had, just to get to enjoy something for a change.

A HUMBLE PLEA FOR HELP

I has just gone past 3:30 am, Sunday morning in South Africa and neither of us had slept so far. Since yesterday, Lydia has a massive buldge over her lower spine and intense pain in her legs, feet, neck, shoulders and arms. So either later today or Monday morning we would have to see a doctor or go to the state hospital again, as we are completely running out of funds.

The fundraising campaign on Go Get Funding hardly progresses. The reason being that they only move you up on their "futured campaign" list, once there is evidence of activity on your campaign. This is measured by both the donations received AND the number of donors. For this very reason, we would even appreciate the smallest donation of a dollar or 5.

Today, Lydia had a little bit of a better day. For the first time in long period, we managed to take her to one of her favourite places in nature. Tonight she is in a lot of pain again, but overall it did her good just to get out of the house for a change.

Lydia has now been put onto 1000 mg antibiotics as a huge 6 cm abscess made its appearance right above the tailbone. The state hospital gave her 250 mg antibiotics the previous week but it had no effect. We want to thank Carroll Sullivan who made a donation on 1 October 2017, which enabled us to visit a private doctor who then subscribed the higher doses and some painkillers. Without Carroll's help, we would not have been in the position. God bless.
