Medical Aid for Papa Nick

Update posted by Monique Ferreira On Oct 31, 2020

Hi all 🌻

Here with another update on Papa Nick

We had made such a noise about the current situation of state hospitals that word had gotten out to the DA and MSC of Mpumalanga. A few individuals in high up positions personally took interest to follow up on our case and was able to provide my Papa with better medical attention.

Papa has now been moved to a window bed where he has a nice breeze coming in, clearing up the bad smells of human waste.

The medical staff are being more attentive to his wounds & welfare + with some convincing my mama bear was allowed to see him for a brief period of time.

We finally got more information about what will be happening with surgery. It's going to be performed on Monday (2nd November) at Themba Hospital, done by one of the top orthopedic surgeons in the area.

It is amazing how one can feel a little more at ease when informed of what is going on instead of being left in the uncertain darkness.

It has left us speechless with gratitude to see how much love, compassion and prayers we can share amongst one another. To know we can all stand together to help when tragedy strikes creates an enlightening hope where times like these are menacing.

From the Ferreira family we want to say a very big heartfelt thank you to all who supported and is still supporting us through this tough time 🙏🏻

May God bless you all abundantly ✝️

The generosity shown to our family thus far has been extraordinary!

I wanted to give an update on why I started this fundraiser as I have heard how bad the state hospitals are but such nightmare stories have now become our reality.

Since my Papa has been submitted (Friday 23rd Oct) Drs go to see him but no further actions get taken. If that is not bad enough, he has already been through a leaking catheter resulting in him having to lay 2 days in a bed soaked in urine. Sadly it doesn't end there...

Yesterday I spoke to him and this is what he told me:

They have taken his clothes which means he is lying naked with only with a sheet to cover him.

There is a serious lack of medical attention given to his wounds, leaving it to become septic that may result in him possibly losing his leg completely.

The staff are not friendly, extremely careless and portray an attitude of not willing to help bring any sort of comfort or aid to the need of the patient.

People who have experienced a traumatic event like being shot do not need to be further traumatized by the complete lack of care and support from the medical assistants as well.

Hospitals are meant to bring healing and a hope of recovery! The state hospitals of South Africa just brings more fear and that is why we are desperately pleading for donations.

This fundraiser is our only hope of rescuing my Papa's leg and it seems his quality of life now as well.

Thank you for the love and support shown so far but we are still a journey away from being able to get my Papa proper medical aid.

Please carry on sharing and supporting this cause folks.

God bless ✝️
