    Story

    My name is Chrissie & and I am currently teaching in China. One of my students, Phoebe, a bright & vivacious three year old, was admitted to hospital with severe pneumonia. Her condition has rapidly deteriorated to the extent that ECMO is urgently needed to save her life. The cost of this will runs into many thousands of pounds, and time is of the essence. The cost of medical care in China is extremely high, and whilst there is help from the state & private insurance available, the cost of this emergency care on top of the costs already paid by the parents is a terrible burden they are struggling to cope with.

    That is why Will & I have joined forces to try and help - we are teaming up with fundraisers in China to help contribute with JustGiving donations.

    Please help give Phoebe the chance to fight for her life & for her parents to support her without worrying about finances.

      Brain scans show atrophy which they are putting down to hypoxia prior to getting the ECMO. However, until she is no longer medicated etc they will not know the true extent of the effect. Her latest chest xRay show continued improvement of her lungs. But the best news is she was finally released from ICU an hour ago and is now on a normal ward in the Respiratory Department, meaning her parents can finally be at her bedside for as long as they want to be. Hopefully, she is now out of the woods and on the road to recovery.

      Phoebe is still in ICU but is no longer sedated. However, the doctors are concerned because she is not interacting with them, not talking, not making eye contact. They feel it may be psychological as she is still in isolation, does not understand what is going on, and is surrounded by scary strangers (doctors) and equipment. Just to be on the safe side they will do imaging on her brain. On the plus side, the latest Xray shows her lungs are improving.

      Today started off worryingly when Phoebe had to have emergency surgery to remove the ECMO. A clot had been forming in her lungs, and the ECMO was in a position that was squashing the clot and crushing her lung. Not only was coming off Life Support a tentative success, but Phoebe finally came round for a few moments and saw her parents, and they were allowed into the room so she could see them and they could speak to her, although they were not allowed right up to her bedside. Rollercoaster ride today, the next few hours will be crucial!
