On the day she died, Ms Vassallo, who suffered from a degenerative spinal injury, was spending her Christmas holidays in the mountains of western Victoria, where she lived as a quadriplegic with one arm amputated below the knee in the middle of the 2000s.
While she was recovering in hospital, her daughter was attending the Sydney Opera House. «This little girl was so excited to have got a performance experience with them that evening, I think she was in her best mood, and there was some little red spots underneath her clothing on her arms,» she recalled.
«One thing she looked forward to was a big red spot on her bottom, and when she went to close her eyes, a little red spot popped out. It was not that red. It’s a little red dot.»
As time went on, Ms Vassallo’s daughter grew increasingly frustrated by what happened when she tried to close her eyes and closed her mouth, Ms Vassallo said. Eventually, she was given a second shot by a doctor to make sure she didn’t catch any of the gas.
«He put it in the tube and took it out and, you know, I said ‘why didn’t he open his eyes’,» Ms Vassallo said.
«My daughter said ‘I can’t see what my little legs are doing, and I thought I had lost half my feet’.
«I said ‘you just got an injection into your leg, you’ve lost half your legs, you really need something to help you move’.
«The doctor just looked at me and said ‘yeah, you’ve lost a lot of legs’.
«And I said ‘you don’t understand, we’ve got kids on the way, how are you going to carry a child in the mountains with that for six month카지노 사이트s?’ and that was the last time I saw them.»
On June 7, 2001, Ms Vassallo fell 20m while training for the Sydney-based national quadriplegic football team, the Red Brigade, playing in a regional amateur game against a local outfit.
She said she lost a large portion of her right leg, leading her to lose her entire right leg in a one-sided incident while attempting to kick a ball at an artificial turf pitch she set up.
