PLEASE HELP SHAUN GET MEDICAL TREATMENT

Update posted by Julie Hide On May 17, 2019

Yesterday we were lucky enough to have funds donated privately in order for Shaun to see a specialist privately. We were hoping to see his original orthopaedic surgeon however after having a long telephonic discussion with him, he felt it was best to first see a spinal specialist before addressing the bone issues that are currently going on.

Dr Kyte recommended that we see Dr Khan as soon as possible as there is concern that Shaun has lost feeling to his legs and has numbness and tingling in his arms on an almost permanent basis now.

So we are off to see Dr Khan on the 5th June and we can't wait. We will be counting down the hours until our appointment date comes so that we can finally start getting a good solid plan together.

Between yesterday and today, it marks 14 years since Shaun’s life changed forever. It marks 14 years since our lives crossed paths and we started this journey together. I say together because it really was the day that our lives were pushed together in the strangest of ways.

Up until the day of your accident, we knew of each other but did not know each other. And looking back, although I cannot imagine how much pain Shaun endured, I can say that I would not change a thing.

You see that although Shaun is in a wheelchair now, this was something that I knew deep down that I was signing up for. Throughout life, I made accommodations for Shaun without knowing. I did not realise that I put his items higher than mine in our cupboards because it made things easier for him to access, I did not “know” that I would take over doing somethings for our children because he was not able to… to me it just came naturally. As naturally as loving him was.

The same can be said for our children. Our children don’t know any different, we don’t know any different Shaun than what we experience now. Yes there have been better days but we don’t know the Shaun that you used to be. To us, he is my husband and he is their father. He is the father that picks his daughter up and places her on his lap (no matter how sore) because she needs comfort, because he understands that being a teenager is hard…

So on this day, although this may not be an update as such to the progress that we have made, this is a little insight into “us”, into our world.

We continue to push on using the astounding strength that Shaun has inside him, he reminds us each day that no matter how hard life is, no matter what we are going through… we can hold hands and enjoy the ride together.
