Unfortunately Matei did not start the year too well, on New Year's Eve 2 hematomas came out to his head, spontaneously without him hitting himself.

We were very scared because we know the risks involved in an epicranial hematoma, especially in his disease, but thank God they were reabsorbed.

We were determined to go abroad in the next few days but Matei caught influenza A virus, after which we had 2 hospitalizations, he felt sick, even expectorate with blood, also because of his illness.

I got over this episode well, for now Matei goes to school, permanently accompanied by me.

Because we tried most of the medicines for his disease, without any results, now we use a homeopathic treatment, there are no changes this time, which is why in the near future we will go abroad.

I thank Mr. Vlad and the association "Save a heart" for the kindness and permanent support we receive, thank you to all the people who helped us and prayed for Matei.

May God reward you with good health.

Hello!

It was a very difficult day for both Matei and us, we performed a biopsy and osteo-medullary aspiration under general anesthesia. Due to the very low platelet count, several units of platelet mass had to be administered during the intervention to avoid major bleeding.Taking into account that he was breathless at the first administration 2 years ago, I had very high emotions, but thank God that I passed well. 

I also want to thank Mr. Vlad Placintă for being and still is with Matei, we are eternally grateful for everything you do for us, may God reward you with good health and all the good in the world!

Good evening!

Since we returned from Turkey we have started an injectable treatment that is performed once a week, it should help the marrow produce more platelets,  but unfortunately we do not see results. 

A few days ago we were hospitalized in Bucharest for more detailed analyzes, platelets were and still are at a very dangerous threshold, namely 2,000 (normal range 150,000 - 450,000) which is why he has various hematomas, including the head. In the coming days we will return to the hospital again for further investigations. 

Thank you all who still carry Matthew in prayers, may God grant you much health! We hope it does a miracle for us too!

Hello!

For a while Matthew came home, his condition is the same, but now he radiates happiness. During this time we will be monitored by doctors in Turkey, and when they consider that his condition is worsening, we will be called back to the clinic to start a new treatment that we already ordered some time before leaving. 

I thank Mr. Vlad Placintă and the "Save a heart" Association for supporting us and being by Matei's side throughout the hospitalization, we thank all the people who donated and prayed for Matei! We are eternally grateful for all you have done for us, may God reward you tenfold!

Unfortunately, at this week's analyzes the platelets were 2,000. Since he got sick he has never had such a low value. It bled quite a lot a few days ago, and the body is full of bruises and spots. Following the consultation, the doctor decided to discontinue this drug as well because it does not give yield, and in the next few days we will start another one. 

Even if the results are disappointing for us, we try not to lose hope.

Matthew had a hard week, although the tooth loss is an emotional and happy moment for any parent, in our case this procedure was accompanied by a lot of fear because it is already the 2nd week since the platelets do not increase, they were stuck at a dangerously small number (3,000) because of this he had multiple bleeding.

I can't describe to you the emotions I went through, the sleepless nights and the helplessness I feel every time I look at him.

Please do not forget Matthew in your prayers, I am the only one that one day a miracle will happen for us too!

Christ is risen!

Today unfortunately we have the lowest values at the analyzes of the last 6 months (3,000) , the body is filled with painful hematomas that we try to cover with the cream to speed up their healing , but we do not manage to keep up with them because others always come out and sometimes it has bleeding from the mouth .

I can not imagine what is in his soul after so many stings, pain , treatments and side effects

13 Apr
2023-04-13

Matthew's platelets are very low , I did a lot of analyzes because he bled a few days from the gum , I checked if the problem may be of a dental nature or if the liver no longer performs its functions properly but the bleeding was due to his illness.

We have tried all possible treatments but they have no effect , we are left only to increase the dose and hope that something good will happen.

The doctor told us about the possibility of removing his spleen but he does not guarantee us the cure of the disease (only 30%) , and if it still works we must administer penicillin daily up to 20 years or even all his life because we leave his body defenseless .

We are disappointed, exhausted, and sometimes hopeless, but we do not lose faith in God.

Platelets are still very small ,have not increased at all ,on the contrary they went down to 5,000 ,and this is seen very well on his body full of bruises and petechiae.
The doctor told us today that there would not be many treatments to try , and these are chemotherapies and  the cure rate is not as high as the drugs on the front line , which we have also tried all of them to no avail.
We are sad and demoralized, but I hope God will not let us.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help , it will not take me a lifetime to thank you for all your support.

Good evening! 

As you know, 2 weeks ago, Matthew had 6,000 platelets, which is why the doctor decided to add another drug to him to suppress immunity. 

Today, at the analyzes, the values have remained the same, but to find out if the drug is doing its effect we have to wait between 4 and 6 weeks. As before we must have a special attention to it because these values are dangerously low, and a small blow can have serious consequences. 

Thank you for carrying us in your prayers! 🙏

Good evening! Matthew's platelets are at the same number as 2 weeks ago (8,000), still very low, and on the last ultrasound he was found sand  in his left kidney. The doctor will conduct a council in the next period with several doctors in Turkey where Matei's file will be analyzed and the next treatment plan will be established because  it has had no effect either. 

Bruises and stains are always present at these values, but we thank God that he has not bled for a good period of time, he has recovered physically. A few months ago, he had taken 7 kilograms because of cortisone, he no longer has pain and his mood is good. 

We thank the Association "Save a heart" for all the help and support we receive and all the people who extended a helping hand and a prayer to Matthew! We wish you much health and all the good in the world!

Hello! 

Matthew still follows the antibiotic intravenously. After blood transfusion hemoglobin increased from 6.7 to 10.5. He no longer has a fever, and his mood has changed considerably, which we are very happy about, but the platelets have dropped very much, from 11,000 to only 4,000. 

Tomorrow the test results will come, we will find out what kind of infection it is, we hope that in the coming days we will have at least a small increase, otherwise we will have to urgently start the immunoglobulin sessions. 

We wish you good health, we thank all those who are near Matthew and pray for him!

The first day of Christmas for us !

After a blow we had to do several checks including the CT scan because Matthew's platelets are very small and this caused him a blood hematoma in the head , in the place where he was hit .

We had to do investigations to be sure that he did not have any intracranial bleeding , and his life was not endangered.

Thank God, earlier the results have arrived and they are good!

We wish you happy holidays with your loved ones!

For 3 weeks Matthew's platelets were blocked at 15,000 , during this time I had no bleeding , except for a few mornings when he woke up with blood clots in his mouth .

At today's ultrasound we were shown that the liver was not affected by the treatment but has a kidney stone .

Next week the doctor will tell us what we will do next !

Hello! 
This time I come with better news about Matthew's condition. As you know, two weeks ago he had 6,000 platelets. Today's analyses have risen to 15,000, which we've been hugely pleased about. Although they have grown a little, his body is still affected and is very fragile. 

The analyzes of the liver and kidneys have come out good, we still have to wait for some results that if they are going to be just as good, we will have to do an ophthalmological control because the eyes are very yellow maybe as an adverse effect from the pills. 

Thank you to all of you who help him and pray for our child!

In addition to the treatment we have been taking since we arrived in Turkey, the doctor added us another immunosuppressant - if it does its effect we should see in 2 weeks. We must do an abdominal ultrasound every month as long as we take this treatment because the most common adverse effect is the formation of a blood vessel on the liver.

Matthew still has small platelets, is bruised and has spots everywhere, but he will not intervene with additional treatment until he bleeds. At tomorrow's analyzes we will find out the number of platelets. He also dropped in weight, from 26 kilograms he reached 23, which is very good, and for a while the bone and tummy pains left him. He tried to run but he can't, he says his back hurts - it's been 2 and a half months since he didn't run.

In today's analyzes platelets came out 6,000, they are below the threshold with a possible risk of hemorrhage. Matthew's eyes are very yellow for a while, one of the causes may be frequent bursting of blood vessels or a change in bilirubin values, but we will find out when all the tests will be ready. Tomorrow, the doctor will make a council with several hematologists in Turkey in which the case of Matei will also be discussed, and the next treatment plan will be established because the medicines we use now do not yield yield.

Matthew did 2 sessions of immunoglobulins, as a result of which his platelets increased a little more, from 3,000 to 30,000. We don't know how long they're going to last, but for now we're happy that they're not bleeding anymore and the clots in our mouths are gone.

Hello! 

I come with news about Matthew's condition. As a result of infection and fever, platelets decreased even worse. Since last night I urgently started treatment with immunoglobulins because for a week blood was flowing from his mouth and nose every morning. Last night his eyes bruised, and the blood clots in his mouth were getting bigger and bigger. Tomorrow morning we will do analyzes to see if they have grown at least a little. 

Thank you for continuing to join us! God bless you with much health!

Good found, folks! 

In addition to all the problems, now Matthew has also had a lung infection. The doctors have already started the treatment, but we have to be very careful because the infection, in his situation, means a further decrease in platelets, it means even lower immunity, it means even greater danger. Matthew is under treatment and I hope to get over the infection and be able to continue treatment for immune thrombocytopenia. His platelets drop so much, reaching values of only 3,000, which can cause a massive, fatal hemorrhage. 

Thank you for joining us! Since I joined this beautiful group, the sum of €3,805 has been raised for Matthew. We are still missing €7,195 to be able to pay the bill at the hospital. This is the first bill, for the treatment of thrombocytopenia. Then we do not know what will come next, it all depends on how Matthew's body responds to this treatment. We only know that we will already have additional costs for this unforeseen infection, but we still do not know how much. 

Thank you for all your help! I don't know what I would have done without the help of people. I don't have enough words to be able to thank you enough, but what I can do is pray to God to bless you with great health. 
Thank you very much!

    It is very difficult for me to see him like this, I am tired of fighting this disease, to try all kinds of treatments and to see him more at the hospital than at home or in a playground like any other child, but we have to go forward.

    But as a result of the illness everything took a different turn, his frail body is full of bruises and broken blood vessels, sometimes even our simple hug leaves marks on his skin.

    On the 13th, Friday, between 19-22, a beautiful performance of music, dance and martial arts will be organized at the House of Culture of the Trade Unions in Medgidia within the campaign "For you Matei".

    Matthew did the last session of the treatment yesterday , halfway through the infusion he was hurt and we had to interrupt it for 10 minutes for him to recover, but with God's help we were able to carry it to the end . Platelets on the day of treatment were 6,000

    In the next few days we will do analyzes to see if the treatment has yielded or if we will have to start a new one.

    It was a hard day for Matthew. Today she finished the third session of the new treatment. At the moment he is fine, he has not had any side effects unlike the last time he had strong belly pains and vomiting, and for 5 minutes he cried uncontrollably.

    Platelets still remain low, below the threshold with a possible risk of bleeding, but we do not lose hope! 

    Thank you "Save a heart" for helping us and joining us! Thank you to all those who donated and prayed for Matthew, we wish you all the best in the world!

    On Tuesday I did the first session of the new mabthera treatment (rituximab). Platelets then were only 7,000. Thank God, everything went well, with no big side effects, he only had a stuffy nose. The next day, the platelets went up to 13,000. 

    But on yesterday's tests, the blood results were very low - 5,000 platelets - and the bruises were not long in coming.

    The doctor recommended  Prednol (methylprednisolonum) to us for two days, following that on Monday we will repeat the analyzes, and on Tuesday we will perform the second infusion of Mabthera.

    Matthew's story

     

    13 was and will remain a number with bad luck for a young Romanian family. On November 13, Mădălina and Cătălin Costea, 23 and 25 years old respectively, arrived at the hospital with their son, after he began to appear spots and bruises all over his body. Matei Costea was born healthy four years ago, but a few months ago his health began to show signs that something was deeply wrong. 

    The two parents hoped to be something minor, but the doctors gave them unexpected news. Even they themselves were shocked to learn that the number of the boy's platelets had reached only 3,000, while a normal person has between 150,000 and 350,000/microliter of blood. 

    This is how Matthew was diagnosed with severe thrombocytopenia, a disease that puts him at risk of spontaneous bleeding. To make you realize, dropping below 20,000 platelets can be fatal to anyone, and the little one was only 3,000 when he arrived at the hospital! 

    After a few days of treatment we were discharged with 67,000 platelets, and on the 19th it was found that they decreased again to 3,000. After several investigations and analyzes we received  the diagnosis of immune thrombocytopenia, told us Madalina, Matei's mother.

    Desperate to save their only child, Mădălina and Cătălin took the boy to a clinic in Turkey, where they have already spent $ 35,000 on various treatments designed to keep his condition under control unfortunately Matei needs at the moment the amount of 8191 euros Because we are talking about a disease with lethal potential, the road is a long and very expensive one. Most likely, the following costs will be similar to those so far, and the two youngsters have no way to cover them - the boy's mother is a student, and the father is a day laborer in construction, so they can barely support themselves. 

    This young family, at the beginning of their journey in life, is already experiencing a major crisis. In addition to the child's illness, the inability to raise money to get him out of danger of death strongly grinds the parents. Where to get so much money? Where to ask, who will give them? They are questions that trouble them day and night and they do not know how they will bring it to an end to avoid the tragedy of their lives. 

    Amid this situation that has shaken their lives, they have asked for our help and hope that together we will donate for Matthew. Any amount transferred to the accounts of the Association "Save a heart" means the continuation of treatments that can save the little boy. He's too small to fight such a powerful enemy alone, and we are too big in power to be indifferent to his suffering. Together we can save Matthew!
