***posted on behalf of my beautiful partner Chloe***
On Friday 1st February, Chloe woke with a sore leg.
She was putting our 3 year old son on the toilet when she struggled to catch her breathe.
She somehow managed to yell out for help. By the time I got her she was in agonizing pain. She then started to convulse on floor and had several seizures.
The ambulance was called and when they put her into the ambulance she lost consciousness and she had cardiac arrests they perform CPR multiple times on her on route to the hospital.
It turns out that Chloe had a blood clot in her leg that travelled into her lungs and heart . This is what caused her to have a cardiac arrest.
Thankfully the critical care paramedics met the other ambulance enroute to the hospital and administered life saving drugs. These drugs have only in the last few months been able to be given to patients by paramedics.
Chloe was put into a induced coma and intubated (see photo)
Since coming out of her coma it has become apparent that she has lack of function in her legs due to a spinal stroke. The doctors don't know whether this is going to be permanent.
We are hoping that with the help of rehab that her dream to walk again will be sooner rather than later.
Unfortunately this does mean that Chloe will need to possibly live at a rehab centre away from her family.
Please help us make her dream of walking again a reality by donating however much you can, whether that be by sharing her story, donating money or even your time to help get the house ready and accessible for her wheelchair.
We thank you from the bottom of our heart and will keep you updated on her progress.
Chloe, Jen, Hendrix and Niyah
