SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday October 17 2017 7 News NEW! DETERMINATION: Maddie Collins with her horse Trig at the North Loburn Equestrian Spring Dressage tournament at the weekend. Maddie goes from her hospital bed to a saddle • By Gabrielle Stuart and Georgia O’Connor- Harding ONLY LAST week Maddie Collins was back in hospital fighting a potentially lifethreatening infection. But within three days she was back out horse-riding at her competitive best. The West Melton teenager, who needs a potentially lifesaving kidney transplant in the United States, was taken to hospital with peritonitis – an infection of the lining around her abdomen. But shortly after being discharged from Christchurch Hospital, Maddie, 13, was back out riding her way to victory in the North Loburn Equestrian Spring Dressage tournament. Maddie was discharged on Wednesday night and had only been out of hospital for three days when she went on to win all of her four dressage events for her level, making her the champion of the competition. “I don’t know how she does it. How she can go from a high-dependency unit to winning a horse show. Her stamina is just incredible,” her mother Sarah Manson Collins said. “It has absolutely shattered her but it’s what she wants to be doing. It’s what keeps her well.” Maddie’s instructor Cheryl French, of Carnmore Equestrian, said Maddie has got huge riding talent. “She did very well to last two days competing and still stayed bright and cheery and gets on so well with the other kids that come to us. She is a real inspiration to all of us,” she said. Mrs Manson Collins said Maddie will continue with heavy treatment for the next two weeks and has had to go back into hospital most days for blood tests since she was discharged. Maddie has had the condition before, when she was five-years-old, and ended up on life support because of it. Treatment for the infection was complicated by the medication and dialysis treatment Maddie needs for kidney failure. Mrs Manson Collins said Maddie had been in a lot of pain, but was staying positive. She said on the way home from hospital Maddie told her “thank you for looking after me so well”. “As she is getting older, she is more SICK: Maddie Collins, 13, was released from hospital on Wednesday after fighting a potentially life-threatening infection. aware of how time-consuming and how hard it is to care for someone on dialysis that is medically fragile,” she said. Mrs Manson Collins said the infection made the need for a transplant more urgent. “She just needs a kidney. We’re just trying to sit tight here and hope it happens,” she said. Last week marked five years since Maddie’s father, Adam Collins, donated one of his kidneys to her. Five hours after the operation, her body rejected it. Her family has been fundraising to get Maddie a kidney transplant in the US, where the treatment offered would make it less likely a donated kidney would be rejected. But the treatment would cost more than $700,000, and is also conditional on Maddie’s brother, Tomas, donating one of his kidneys to an American patient as part of a “paired exchange” programme. Mrs Manson Collins said she hoped Maddie’s story would inspire people to become organ donors.
