A RAY OF SUNSHINE IN THE MIDST OF THE STORM

First of all, I would like to apologise for the late update... since the discharge a lot has been happening and David has surely been keeping everyone on their toes...

On 27th July, last friday, Sparsh Hospital had scheduled suture removal for David Livingstan. The family even as they arrived at hospital braced themselves for the report and assessment by the neuro team and also his reaction to the procedure since he is still unaware of what has happened to him and his injury.

The suture removal went as planned and Levi was calm throughout the procedure. Later the doctor assessing him was surprised and delighted by his recovery. They mentioned that the edema has considerably reduced and the follow up surgery can be scheduled in a month's time. This came as a big breakthrough and major relief to the family. An unexpected good news in trying times.

Such unexpected breakthroughs are some things that the family cherishes and holds on to as they maneuver the long and difficult journey they are on.

As David (Levi) continues to recover, your financial help provides relief to a family holding on to nothing but hope that their only son, brother and breadwinner will be able to get back on his feet again. Even though managing him, his questions, emotional unrest and medicated state takes a heavy toll on them. They hold on believing that through you all God will provide the finances needed for the next surgery amounting to 4 lakhs and also the mounting daily medical bills for the next six months.

DAYS WITHOUT SKULLCAP
As Levi has begun putting the basic pieces of his life together, like walking, talking, eating, sleeping, etc. His memory is still affected and he has no memory of either his life-threatening accident or any of the recent past (i.e. last 5+ years). He still has a long way to go in terms of medical recovery as well as becoming an independent individual.

As mentioned before the doctors have removed a large piece of his skullcap and have scheduled another surgery after two months to put it back. This is to ensure the swelling in the brain caused by the impact of accident comes down.

The family though relieved that he has been discharged, continues on pins and needles as his care and safety without skullcap is difficult. He is continuously monitored and sometimes needs to be controlled, as he is unaware of what has happened to him and the seriousness of his condition.

The primary focus of all caretakers is that he should not sustain any further head injury, which could happen easily during this period without skullcap. Truly this is reminder that our bodies are so perfectly designed by God and sometimes the good health we enjoy is often taken for granted. Lack of a single part of the skull could pose such grave consequences to life.

Do continue to support this family and David Livingstan (Levi) as they piece together the parts of their life and Levi's recovery. Your support means a lot to them and each one of you have given them hope, encouragement and strength as they go through tough times and look forward to an uncertain future.

THE ROAD TO RECOVERY BEGINS...
There has been much improvement in the recovery of David Livingstan (Levi) and he is currently off life support. His neuro-rehabilitation and neuro-assessment has begun and doctors have recommended to take him home but continue his physiotherapy, medication and neuro-rehabilitation on a daily basis. He needs a lot of help and care to carry out his basic daily activities and still has a long way to go to regain his basic abilities. He has begun to communicate and interact with people though disoriented at times.

Brain is still swollen (Brain Edema), so neuro team has decided to put back his skullcap after 2 months. Till then we need to give him the utmost care.

Do continue to support this campaign as it will be a great support to the family who still have a long road ahead, it will enable them to continue his treatment and ensure he gets back on his feet again.
