Please help La di dah

Recommended Posts

*Ker*

Many of you will remember La di dah (and some of you may also remember her husband Ben, aka A Tiny Hedgehog), from the forums. She's been a part of us for some years now and has always been a massive support to anyone that needs it.

 

La di dah (Jordanna) and her husband Ben have a little boy, Sebastian. Sebastian is ill. I'm going to cut and paste from Jordanna's FB page.

 

 

Sebastian Harvey has been diagnosed with a rare condition called Niemann-Pick Type A.

It is not a condition that has ever had a baby survive. We will do everything in our power for his care.

We know there are so many people who will be shocked and devastated. We ourselves, Ben and I, did not know he was medically fragile until mid-January and everything we thought we had has all gone away in weeks.

We had a pretty healthy and happy baby for a year.

He is mostly still pretty happy.

We will do everything to pour love on him. I know there is a lot of love out there for him.

He has only ever known the world as love and softness and with your help we will keep doing that for as long as we can

 

 

 

 

One of Jordanna and Ben's friends have set up a Go fund me account. Any help you could give them would be so much appreciated.

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you for the support and kindness. I haven't been posting much in awhile, at first just busy in a happy way with a young baby and now it's just... very different. I can't explain what it's like.

 

EB can be such a sweet and good place

I'm open to it but I may not do anything with it for a while.

 

My head is all over the place at the moment, I've been living the last week at the hospital and it's just nightmarish and surreal.

 

If I don't reply or don't do something please know I just can't keep up with everything.

 

Its been like a bad dream.

LDD, I am so very sorry to hear this news. I remember seeing your posts often and being excited for you when you announced your pregnancy.

 

I lost my first born 2 years ago to an always fatal neurological disorder. She was diagnosed right after birth and lived for 14 months. If you ever want to chat, I'm here. Everyone's journey is different but I understand what it is like to feel like you are living a nightmare.

 

You are in my thoughts, I am truly so sorry you and your precious son are going through this.

 

ETA, I will send you a PM. I understand totally if you don't reply, but I will send it so you have my info just in case you ever want it.
