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 !!!”
