My Intestines Got Sucked Out In A Swimming Pool | TRULY


Salma: I’m basically in pain 24/7. Salma: I had an accident happen at a swimming pool. Salma: It was so traumatic. Salma: My mom actually thought it was
like my bathing suit or something. Salma: There was a doctor there and
he’s like, “Those are intestines.” Salma: It was horrible. Salma: Yeah Ray and Jay – Ray and Jay are coming. Mother: She will stay here? Salma: Not a sleepover, no. Mother: Just short visit today? Salma: Yeah, we are going to see each other and stuff. Mother: Okay. Salma: My name is Salma and I am 16 years old. Salma: I live in Pittsburgh. Salma: With my mom and my two brothers. Mother: Salma, she’s amazing girl in the whole world. Mother: Salma, she’s a fighter. She is a miracle. Salma: Yeah, having it for 10 years. Salma: All the nutrition I get is my TPN, so I don’t technically need to eat. Salma: TPN is Total Parental Nutrition. Salma: It is a bag full of fluids. Salma: It has all the nutrition you
need to survive basically. Salma: But yet somehow, I get the
sensation that I’m hungry. Salma: Maybe it’s a brain thing, maybe
it’s a mind thing, I have no idea. Salma: So I still get the taste of the food. Salma: Honestly, I don’t even remember
what it’s like to swallow the food. Salma: I mean it would be awesome
to, you know, swallow the food again. Salma: I can’t really do much
whenever I’m hooked up. Salma: Because I have to carry
it around in a backpack. Salma: Especially when it’s first
hooked up, it’s so heavy. Salma: I need to stay hooked up to
the TPN for 20 hours a day. Mother: When she was five years old, she had a tragic accident. Mother: It was vacation. Mother: We have an apartment in Alexandria and Egypt. Mother: That day, she went to the swimming pool. Mother: I asked her to please stay in front of me. Mother: Please, she is like “No, no,
no mom it’s for kids.” Mother: “It’s very little for babies.
I’m going. I’m going”. Mother: She went one time and she came back. Mother: She went another time. Mother: The third time she went and she didn’t come back. Salma: You know, if you actually
let me go somewhere. Salma: Which you probably will never let me go anywhere. Mother: That’s Salma. Salma: Controlling mother. Salma: There was a suction in it. Salma: It was actually pulling. Salma: So I was just swimming and all of a sudden, like I just sat on it by accident. Salma: I know the lifeguard tried to pull me out and he couldn’t, because the suction was so much. Salma: I could see what was going
on but I couldn’t even breathe. Salma: I could remember the pain.
I remember everybody panicking. Salma: Everybody getting out of the pool. Salma: I know a couple people finally
were able to get me out. Mother: I stand up and ran to her. Mother: I found someone carrying her and all her, like intestines, came out from her body. Mother: I couldn’t believe this is intestines. Mother: I thought at the beginning, I
thought it’s hair swimming through. Mother: Literally like my whole
stomach was just – it was horrible. Mother: But the good thing is it was so bad that I
basically blacked out after a little while. Salma: I think I was in the
hospital for maybe like two months. Salma: That was back in Egypt. Salma: Okay I’m in, I’m in. Salma: It is so cold. Salma: They said that I have
about two weeks to live, if I don’t get this transplant. Salma: And they told us that Pittsburgh
is the best place to go. Mother: Egypt – we don’t have
any treatment for Salma right now. Mother: We don’t – even her TPN, we don’t have it in Egypt. Mother: We have to come to America.
To do a transplant. Salma: Since we’re not citizens,
we can’t have insurance. Salma: And we were on the transplant
waiting list for 18 months. Salma: And then I did receive my
small intestinal transplant. Salma: After two weeks of me receiving my
transplant, I had my first rejection. Salma: After another month or so, another one. I had
a total of about five or six rejections. Salma: And it was so bad that they opened me up to remove that one organ which was only small intestines. Salma: And they found out that
the rejection had spread. Salma: So they actually had to remove my small
intestines which I got transplanted. Salma: And my large intestines. Salma: My bladder was ruptured in the process. Salma: And yeah, whenever they took everything
out since the infection was so bad, they unfortunately could not close me back up. Salma: So it’s healing slowly. Salma: But, now it’s literally – it’s
not healing any more. Salma: They removed my transplant, they said that we couldn’t have another one. Last time was just one organ. Salma: This is five organs. Salma: They also – money,
need money for admissions. Salma: Money for complications, for home care, pre-op evaluation. Salma: They need the money for everything. Mother: Here, everything is like cost. Mother: Everything’s cost. Mother: Every admission, every visit,
every clinic, every labs. Mother: Only, her lab is like a thousand
dollars every week. Mother: She still smiles. Mother: She is still a fighter. Mother: She’s still challenged with her
situation. She’s doing very, very good things for her. Salma: My two friends – their
names are JC and Reagan. Salma: Basically we met at transplant camp. Salma: Honestly, since camp we
have not stopped talking. Salma: We just understand each other so much because, JC actually had a small intestine transplant and it failed. Salma: And then she got a multi-visceral transplant
which is the same thing I need right now. Salma: Hey. Salma: Hey Zeda. Salma: Hi guys. Salma: Dude, we always have
300 people watching you. Girl: 90 Salma: I build my viewers up and I work for it. Mother: This is the dream to
give her – like give her another chance. Mother: Like her friend and she’s good now. Mother: And when she saw her, she gets hope. Mother: She says I wish, Mother: I wish I can get another one
and I live like normal. Mother: I said, just make pray. We keep praying. Mother: It’s impossible. Salma: But, we shall be
back after I’m done filming. Salma: So I love you guys. Peace out. Ray and Jay : Bye. Salma: Bye. Mother: Makeup artist. Mother: She’s good. She’s good. Mother: She’s good, but she’s mad at me,
because I refused to do makeup. Mother: She want to do my makeup. I said
no, I don’t like makeup. Salma: I love doing my
eyes, like eye shadow. Salma: I barely do neutral looks. I always do
crazy bold colors, which I love that. Salma: I have a makeup page that I do lives on. And I just like to go and do my makeup for fun. Salma: That’s what I love to do for fun. Mother: I’m trying to help her. I’m trying to do anything to make her stay alive and feel she’s a normal person. Mother: I wish I can do her dream and make her wish to do another transplant.

  8. Such a good spirit, yet such stupid things are in the media these days. She barely on social media, live your life girl! Lesson to us.

  9. People saying if they won the lottery this and that or where's bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg. You're not owed anything just because you're less fortunate than someone else or because they have more than you. That's not how the world works, it's not fair and thinking like that is just being entitled. It's a hard pill to swallow and I'm not denying the world would be a better place if the more fortunate gave to those with less but what bugs me is the blatant hypocrisy and flawed thinking that they need to have X amount of wealth or need special characteristics to help someone. Small acts of kindness make the world a better place. Its group and individual effort over seeking handouts from the select few we deem to be privileged. You can donate £1, you don't need to be a billionaire and if everyone who watched this did, then she'd have more than enough money to pay for the treatment.

  10. I’m lost…. where did they come out???? Like I hope I’m thinking the wrong thing…. someone tell me please…. where

  11. what were the staff thinking?
    ”Oh yeah, let’s just leave this open so that some unfortunate accident can happen”

  15. This family is amazing. Dealing with such an unfortunate situation with a smile on their faces. When I feel like something isn't working out I'm watching these kind of videos just to take me back to earth and appreciate my life as it is because compared to others it is so blessed.
