I am not trying to communicate all of this for people to feel sorry for her, she does not want that, but for an understanding of ALL of Betsie’s challenges. She takes medication daily, and I help her rub ointments and oils into her body several times a day to help her deal with her pain. Toward the end of last year her Pain Doctor recommended a Ketamine Infusion Treatment. It just became available in the Dallas area last year. (www.kalypsowellness.com) After her first Ketamine treatment Betsie was overcome with joy. (See picture!) She had never been in this small amount of pain her entire life. She cried about the possibility of maybe being able to lead a normal life at some point in her future with continued treatments. The morning of her first treatment she was in such horrible pain Rob had to pick her up off the bed and carry her to a wheelchair to get her to the car to transport her her her infusion. The Ketamine results for Betsie have been miraculous! The bad part is, insurance does not pay for these treatments. (I don’t understand why because it is used effectively used for pain with people needing anesthesia having surgery and for post-surgery pain PLUS pain treatments for other health issues. We are hopeful in the next few years insurance will cover it.)
If any of our family or friends would be able to join us to bless Betsie and help her get a year’s worth of Ketamin treatments, we all would be truly thankful! We have started a Go Fund Me account for her. We are prayerful through these treatments Betsie can get a fresh start and a new beginning on her life. The cost per treatment is $575. An average of two treatments per month for a year is $13,800. An average of one per month is $6,900. (She began her treatments with one per week.) Anything you are able to contribute would be a blessing for her. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us any questions and message us.
Thanks so much in advance!
