The past days have been full of emotion. As you already know we were waiting for some news from the Swiss government. Finally a nurse has been sent to Bali to help Housi during the flight to Switzerland. And tonight Housi will take a plane to fly back home.
Thank you everybody for the support. Even if we didn’t reach the amount that we first targeted, some events have changed the deal and the amount received is more than welcome to help him out.
Housi’s condition is stable. He lost some weight because the food is far from being as delicious as it is in Switzerland, and Housi’s diet is really strict now.
We’re all still waiting for news from the Swiss government. For being in contact with the embassy in Jakarta, we know that the paperwork he has filled have been passed to a commission which statutes his case, and it truly takes ages…His only wish right now is to come back home and have a proper treatment.
He’s currently in a shape good enough to travel in a wheel chair with a commercial flight, in business class in order to be able to lie flat, instead of a pricey medical evacuation flight. We hope that his condition will remain the same until this commission finally gives a verdict.
It is a long journey with a lot of ups and downs that awaits him, so keep supporting Housi as much as you can, cause he really needs it more than ever.
Thank you and stay tuned
Sorry for the delay of this last update, but we all have been really busy lately.
For the past week, Housi’s condition has improved a lot. The doctors couldn’t leave him in induced coma, because the medicine used has heavy side effects on the liver. So they decided to wake him up which took some time. They first started to reduce the medicine progressively and then they turned off the respirator, so he had to breathe by himself. First he was struggling and breathing in short gasps, but soon he was breathing like a champ.
Last Saturday he was moved from the ICU, to a “normal” room, and since then he’s getting better. We’re happy to see his legendary smile back on his face even though the journey is far from being over.
He still has the drain to evacuate the waste liquid thus it’s not filling up his belly anymore.
We’re still not sure about the coming events, as there is lot of paperwork and juggling between the Swiss government and the family…Housi has to fill these papers and answer the questions by himself. Even though he still has a lot of toxins running through his body because here they can’t perform liver dialyze, he’s able to focus (speaking German, French, Italian, English, Indonesian…) and does everything remarkably.
We showed him this website, and he was really moved by your donations and moral support messages, which are for him heartwarming. And for that he really wants to say “Thank you my friends !!!”.
So like I said before, the journey is far from being over, the numbers on the hospital bill are still piling up so any help is more than welcome. We hope to have decisive news about Housi’s evacuation soon, so stay tuned and keep spreading the words.
Thank you for all your support so far and “GO HOUSI !!!”
