Saar 2

30-01-13 Sarhea mail:

I am admitted in Radboud hospital in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Internal infections ward, room 1-26. A lot of doctors came to see, worried about this 'really' ill patient. Trying to cure Lyme by a ceftriaxon drip, I also need extra fluids and glucose as I haven't been able to eat for a week, and before that only very little bits and pieces. I've lost 20 pounds in one week.

Tomorrow again a lot of specialist doctors will see me, more examinations will follow. A speech therapist together with doctors will decide whether I need a sonde or a PEG. I do hope the drip will cure my paralyses so I can swallow again. 
I am thirsty and hungry, very hungry. My opposite neighbour here drinks fruit juice, and oh, watching her makes me want it so badly. I want a drink! But I still have the piece of cloth in my mouth to absorb my saliva.

They keep checking me, all the time. They give me medicins, a lot of medicins. I had to cry when I heard I will be in here for quite some time. I cried for my babies. It really hurts not to be together. Angelika, Maik, Jaap, Marietta and my baby Elijah are with me at the moment. I hope to get a good night's sleep. The staff keeps an close eye on me and let's hope for the best, as I am doing so badly I can barely breath, let alone use my iPhone to app... and when Saar can't app...

The drip's also put in in a horrible place, I can't bend my arm. I feel week, sour, dehydrated, starved, out of breath, tired and am in more pain than ever before. I see the world in triple images at the moment. I need my rest more than ever. I will go with the flow and don't want to cry, but I want to sleep...

I hope I can sleep. Thank you all for your support.
p.s. visiting hours are 3-8PM.

Melanie: dear readers, I wrote the text below via info@mery.nl to all my friends:
My dearest Saar had neuro borreliose Lyme... (next to EDS!) and had to be hospitalised.

"When I need to go to Germany, I was thinking, it would be so special to have you here for a photo documentary, LOL not a studio photoshoot no (like we planned), and yes, I can take pictures myself, but yours are...always so valuable"....

She wrote me this January 21st, 2013. Now she's not in Germany, where this Lyme-specialist was going to treat her, but in the Radboud hospital in Nijmegen. She can't swallow anymore, and her breathing is only shallow. If she hadn't been taken to the hospital, she could've died.

She has a very strong will (mother of two small childres) but a very, very weak body.
O, how I'd love to give her that photo documentary....

I send you this mail to collect money for her personal photography. Next to Sarhea, there's more people who need a photoshoot, we will look into that later too. But: Greed is out, empathy is in! (Bredaphoto 2012)
 We don't know if Saar will survive this, and if she does, how she'll end up.

If we collect 10 euro from 300 contributors, I can be with her for over 3 weeks.

If there's anyone who'd like to support Saar and her family, so I can go over to her and work with her... please donate via Paypal to info@mery.nl or send a cheque to
Speelhuislaan 173
4815 CD Breda
the Netherlands

*God bless you all*

Thank you
