Joseph S, Pulver Post Surgery Fund

€7,461 of €15,000 goal

Raised by 156 people in 24 months
Hello everyone,
here is a long overdue update and Thank You note:
As many of you know, the original cause for setting up this fund had to be neglected, due to a health crisis that happened in 2017. In early August Joe had to be hospitalized due to a growth on his braim. Even though the worst diagnosis was avoided and it turned out to be "only" a cyzt, he spet 5 weeks in the hospital.
The stress, fear and worry caused another onset of my (neuro)sarcoidosis which evolbed intp Optic Neuritis - a complete inflammation of the optivcal nerve. I was hospitalized myself only a few days after Joe returned home.
For the next 3 weeks Joe was mostly in bed with a severe pneumonia, which he picked up from e - it took another month to treat his pneumonia, which in turn delayed his gesperately needed rehab.

Fast forward to February 2018: we would have been lost without your ongoing moral and financial support! Joe is doing a whole lot better, physically and emotionally, but still unable to work. The proddding and testing at the hospital revealed glaucomas in both eyes that need to be removed surgically. His eyesight is blurry at best and his first surgery is still weeks away.
I am still at home as well, still being unable to see traffic lights and hence being unable to work, do anything on the computer (I am writing this on a smartphone set up for the viewing impaired) , or to di grocery shopping by myself.

We are heavily relying on friens and family for anything that needs to b taken care of outside of our flat and we can not afford to pay for their gas o public transportation costs.
I'm on paid sick leave since early October, which means I'm down to 70 percent of my regular income. I am also missinh out on shift bonusses and other sales bonusses - which translates into effectively losing 50 percent of my income.

The money you so graciously donated has been and is still being used to pay for hospital bill, rehab costs (like a walker ) and general survival.

Again, we can not thank you enough for your ongoing support and love - we hope to be out of the madness of being viewing impaired / legally blind in the oncoming months ...

Much love,
the Pulvers

Due to Joe's recent health scare and his prolonged stay at the hospital, our needs and priorities have changed - and so many of old and new donors have came to our support. I can not even find words to express our gratitude, amazement and deep thankfulness. All of you have been helping to make the hospital stay less scary and worrisome.
Joe is getting better day by day, but will have to stay for quite a while longer, as he is still at ICU.

Again, thank you so much for your (financial) help, moral support and the loving messages we have received! We are humbled and amazed at the help we received.

Much love from Carcosa and Berlin <3

Hello everyone :) It's been awhile, due to a constant change in my work schedules (which are now finally settling in to a more predictable timeframe) and also due to me being busy with English to German translations of assorted short stories by Joe. So sorry for being silent for so long!

After having paid off the bank and being on a new meds schedule, we are still looking at affordable desk chairs (Joe def. needs a more ergonomic one than the one he is using now) and are desperately looking for a new bed that suits our needs.

At this point we haven't found anything, but we're still hunting.

Again, thank you so much for help and support you have given us in the past few months!

Love,
Kat and Joe

The last weeks have been somewhat chaotic, but things are finally settling down enough for me to make another update.
First and foremost: another HUGE Thank You to everyone who has donated, helped and spread the word around! You are all amazing and wonderful people! !!
Joe's health is slowly improving again, mostly due to deciding to finally see a new doctor - which is now a lot easier, as the fare for Public Transportation can be paid without flinching or having to wait for another paycheck. At the moment we can afford to see the doc every other week - and it's helping a lot :)

In other news: [1] the laptops have finally been taken care of: thorough cleaning, small repairs and some polishing have done wonders for our heavily used tech.
[2] The bank can now be paid by the end of the month and we can breathe easy again - thanks to your help,
[3] As soon as my vacation starts in October, we'll start looking at beds, hoping to find an affordable version of what we're looking for. Sleeping on a bed that is not screeching and actually stable sounds like a dream come true ...

Again, thank you so much for helping us in this dire situation. You guys are ... rockstars :)
