Little Lana


17.01.2013.
Autor: Nadezda Nedospasova
PHOTO DONATION: Jānis Saliņš

On a frosty January day we and a photographer Janis Salins went to one of the remote streets of Riga to visit little Lana and her mother Ilona, who turned to us for help.

The family lives on the first floor of a two-storey house, in the dark entrance of which it is nearly impossible to be because of the awful smell; however, we found ourselves in a light, neat and very cosy flat. Ilona welcomed us hospitably, there was hot tea and flavorous pie on the table, and while we were taking our places, Ilona picked up her little daughter in her arms and began the story.

The pregnancy went well, all indices were normal and nothing betokened such a dramatic outcome – dramatic, most regretfully, because of negligent oversight of medical personnel at the maternity hospital. Although the birth started in due time, it went badly; the medical personnel hesitated, and as a result the baby, having spent 11 hours in amniotic fluid almost black because of meconium, was born unconscious and in a very bad condition, being tied with umbilical cord around her little neck, body and leg.

Lana had good weight, slightly more than 4 kg, and an Apgar score of 1\4\5, yet she was at once diagnosed with atony, areflexia and asphyxia. Urgent reanimation, which consisted of long and numerous life-saving measures, because the baby had many complications and the convulsive disorder had started, was carried out. Many hours of uncertainty later the girl finally started to breathe on her own. After 6 difficult days at the maternity hospital she and her mother were transferred to the Children Clinical Hospital, where another three tense weeks passed.

The clinical diagnosis said – extensive hypoxic-ischemic injury of organs (central neural system, kidneys and liver), convulsive disorder, cephalhematoma, haemorrhage, pneumonia as a result of meconium aspiration.
However, even though the predominant diagnosis was obvious, it was established far from at once – Lana has infantile cerebral palsy.

When the mother and the baby returned home, the girl practically never slept during the day and spent all the time in mother’s arms, from 8 am to 11 pm. The fontanel would not close, brittle bones would not stand in place, and a lot of difficulties were faced. And only after the baby started to visit an osteopath, the situation gradually began to improve – by reaching the age of half a year, the girl managed to get to sleep during the day, although only for a half an hour, but it still was a great relief for Ilona. Bones started to straighten and the fontanel finally closed. However, there were still many problems to overcome.

Despite Lana’s condition and evident developmental delay, because of which she did not do all the things, which the children are ought to do in her age – she could not turn, she did not sit up, did not crawl, her hands worked badly; the doctors insistently did not give the diagnosis referring to the indistinctness of classification and they did not grant the disability status. And when they finally granted it – for five years – it turned out that the baby was denied of necessary special care. Ilona had to run from pillar to post and to convince and insist on the obvious. As a result, Lana received a mark about her special care, however, the term of disability was decreased to two years – the baby was already 9 months old at the time.

Now she is almost two – her Birthday is very soon, on 24th of February. Incredibly cute, with smart attentive little eyes, pretty pony tales and obvious will to communicate, to come closer to us, to play, and to do everything, what the kids of her age do – so outgoing and curios, and what she cannot do. Little Lana is sitting in her mother’s arms and is watching us with interest, while we are talking; she is crowing, smiling and flirting, particularly with the photographer – it seems that she likes him the most.
Actually, she still cannot neither sit properly, nor hold her head straight, Ilona supports her strongly. The girl cannot walk, although she tries a lot by moving her little feet on the floor, while mom is holding her. The baby cannot crawl either. Whereas she can sit, or rather semi-recline for just half an hour due to undeveloped back and arms – therefore, her walks are short and she cannot sit in a baby carriage for too long, and it is, of course, impossible to carry her in the arms all the time.

The girl regularly – three times a year – takes a rehabilitation course at the children hospital Gailezers, she is soon to leave for a course at Vaivari, moreover, she is always accompanied by her mother. Understanding that without this effort it could have been much worse – after all, now little Lana is able to move her legs and tries to grab things with her hands, thus, delighting her mother, because all these little achievements are so important and cost a lot of effort to get – Ilona is constantly searching for ways how to help her beloved daughter.
Over the time spent at the hospital on rehabilitations she heard about that the rehabilitation course in Truskavec might have a good effect, and now all her dreams are connected to going there as soon as possible. After all, the time is running and the more effort will be put and the more possibilities will be used, the higher the chances for the girl to improve in health and to be able to walk will be. “The main task now, - Ilona says, - is to develop Lana’s back and arms. Otherwise, she will not be able neither to crawl, nor to walk, as specialists say.”

Specialists – physical therapist, speech-language pathologist, neurologist, oculist, ergotherapist, osteopath – consume a lot of time and almost all family resources, which are very few, since the allowance of the baby is not meant for the sums requested for each visit at the polyclinic. A visit to an osteopath, for instance, costs 40 lats – the girl is taken to Anda Polna, leading specialist in Latvia. How else, if results are needed? There is no other choice, Ilona is forced to pay, and most often out of her pocket, because due to some absurd irony everything, what the girl really needs to fight the illness, is not included into the list paid by our government.
Of course, the girl is also recommended with reittherapy and a rehabilitation course abroad, but the family has rather limited resources, and the time is running, therefore, Ilona turned to us for help.

In order not to lose precious months, it is necessary to go to Truskavec in the nearest time – Ilona is convinced that there they will be helped and little Lana will be able to make great progress. She wants so much to see how the girl will sit up on her own, how she will start to crawl, how she will learn to walk on her own holding her mother’s hand and will not be so helpless.

We, all together, can make a gift for the baby’s 2nd birthday by presenting her an opportunity to go to Truskavec in the beginning of March – it is necessary to collect 2,231 lats (3,233 euro), the price of a rehabilitation course.

Let us help all together!

Many thanks to all contributors! At the moment the needed amount of money for Lana’s rehabilitation (and even more than that) is gathered! The money will be used for the rehabilitation, medicaments, massage, visits to the osteopath and reittherapy. Once again- many thanks on behalf of Lana and her parents!

February, 2013
We paid the invoice from Truskaveca for the amount of 2284,76 Ls. We will pay also for the travel expenses.

March, 2013
We paid the travel expenses for the amount of 259,- Ls.

September, 2013
We paid the invoice from Truskaveca for the amount of 2302,78 LVL.

November, 2013 We paid the travel expenses for the amount of 288,58 Ls.

Dear contributors, thanks to your kindness, Lana has had 2 rehabilitation courses in Truskaveca. According to her mum and the opinion of the doctors- Lana’s condition has significantly improved and it would be important at the moment to strengthen and keep this level which can be done by a repeated rehabilitation. As it is stated by the specialists- in order to not loose the progress, the rehabilitations are needed to be repeated regularly because this is the moment when there are still hopes for the positive changes.
For the next rehabilitaion course in Truskaveca are needed 3700,- LVL because for the child reaching 3 years age it is necessary to pay also for the stay of the accompanying person (her mum).

The needed amount: 2615,28 LVL (from 3700,- LVL; 12.12.13.*)
* We will regularly update the list of the contributors and the amount of the given
 * In the next photo story we will definitely inform about the use of the donations

MANY THANKS TO THE ANGELS OF LANA:

Letter from Lana’s mum

 
Hello, my name is Ilona, I am Lana’s mum. At first I would like to thank everybody very much- for your responsiveness and wish to help my sunbeam by giving hopes that also she will walk one day.  Thanks to the charity organizations „Palīdzēsim.lv” and „Nicole Smile”for giving us the possibility to attend the dolphin therapy and get the course of medical treatment.

I will tell how it was in Odessa. At first Lana got her hydro costume. After that we met her instructor- a very nice and sincere man, we got acquainted, then we went to meet the dolphins. The instructor slowly introduced Lana with the dolphins. In the first days Lana was crying a little bit because she was not used that the water is quite cold (only +20…+24 degrees), but when she got used, she was willing to go to the dolphins, to swim and play. In the last 2 lessons she could keep herself above the water herself and swim a little bit with the dolphins on her own. It was a pleasant surprise for us- that she can keep at the dolphin herself. Additionally Lana got physiotherapy and massage lessons. The massage was something special! We had not seen anything like that in Latvia. The specialists in Odessa have a different approach than here in Latvia. For example, Lana has a big spasticity- in Latvia the physiotherapists make muscle stretching, but in Odessa they do the opposite- make muscle stimulation so that the child feels how to handle her hands and legs. I also liked the children neurologist because she explained everything very clearly- what, how and what to pay the attention to. Together with the dolphins and additional procedures Lana has got good results- she started to do more things with her hands, it seems that she has started to understand more. The specialist say that the dolphin therapy give its results only within 6 month time, but luckily for Lana the results were seen at once. As a mum I am very glad that my daughter has so strong wish to start walking herself.

Once again I would like to thank very much everybody that you are following us and every step in development we make all together, thank you for helping!

With kind regards,
Lana’s mums
