Helping Sylvia Kruger with her two young children (GMA).
Sylvia has two beautiful children ... Abigail turns 3 this month and Ruben is just 3-months old. They are her life - but they both have special needs. Abigail has a heart condition, that in time will require surgery and little Ruben is allergic to just about everything. Sylvia's sister, Cherlene wrote to Good Morning Angels, asking for some help for Syliva as she is really taking strain - physically, mentally and financially. And it just so happens that some very special Angels came to town ...
Ok where to startā?¦.
I really want to help my sister SYLVIA KRUGER as she really needs it right now, it seem like everything that can go wrong is going wrong.
Let start with Abigail (turning 3 in April), she has a heart disease, Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), and her heart valve is leaking the sad part is that she will need a operation to repair but is not strong enough
At 1st the Dr. thought that she will outgrown it but that never happened. So to say the lest Abigail will need the heart operation, and I myself as a parentā?¦. The feeling of your baby needing a heart operation this is ouch. To say to her ā??Poppieā? (her little name we gave her- before she was even born) ā??Stadig nouā? or ā??Rustig Poppieā?. How do you explain to such a little energy ball to please take it easy as she must take it easy cause her heart cannot take to much strain.
Then there is Ruben, born 3 January 2012. About 22-24 February 2012 everything change, we found out that he also have CHD, but also we were told that he would outgrown it but only time will tell. BUT he also have a really rare allergy, to almost everything from cow milk to goat milk even soy milk, he also have a multiple food protein intolerance and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), all and all this they told her that the baby formula manufactured and sold in SA is, well he canā??t drink any of it. At this moment he is on Neocate LCP infant formula. The day we found out that this is the milk he needs, I phoned pharmacy after pharmacy, about 95% didnā??t even know what I was talking about. Until I phoned Dis-chem they actually knew. The do sell the milk at R 460.00ā?¦.. and that is for the 400g can, now that last 3-4 days max. This is about R 920.00 for milk per week, and just over R 2000.00 for the milk a months. Lets be honest no normal working parents can really afford to pay that, but they donā??t have a choice.
I can see the stress is getting to her, she is not really sleeping, she is worn out she is tired and, to me she is just not herself and to see my sister like that really hurts cause she is the one you can also go to in any situation she will always help. I donā??t always say it to her but I really look up to her, today still. She is strong, but not that strong.
She has the stress of knowing Abigail will need that heart surgery (and I would think it is one a parents worst fears to have your baby get heart surgery) and the stress of not knowing will Ruben really outgrown the heart disease, will Ruben outgrown this terrible allergy of him and also not knowing will she get the milk for him and where will she get all that money for the milk as it is more that one can think of.
Please help her. Really please
Thank you guys.
