Ayse'nin Katkilari ve Yeni Umutlar/ Ayse's Contribution and New Hopes


ASLI VE BEN, Ayse Dizioglu ve Ugur Koyluoglu'yla NY'da arkadas olduk. Her ikisi de icten ve son derece akilli bu ciftle yakin arkadas olmamiz cok uzun zaman almadi. Ondan beri de Asli ve benim hayatimizda buyuk yerleri oldu.

Ayse ve Ugur, annem ve babamla da NY'da tanisip karsilikli birbirlerine bayildilar. Cool halleriyle, Ayse'nin annesiyle benimkini hep benzetmisimdir zaten. Son yillarda NY'dan tatillerde cocuklariyla kalacaklari Yenikoy'de sirin bir evi heyecanla aldilar. Babamla da evin emlak ve insaati konusunda danismalarindan dolayi bayagi yakinlastilar.

Ayse her probleme cozumle yaklasan ve sonsuz pozitivite dolu bir insandir. Babamin durumuna yaklasimi da ayni oldu. Her konustugumuzda babamin kendini toparlamak icin vakte ihtiyaci oldugu, kendi hizinda bunu atlatacagini bize hatirlatti. Benim Ayse'nin dusuncelerine, sezilerine ve pozitif dusuncenin basarabileceklerine guvenim sonsuz.

Ayse gectigimiz hafta bize baska bir iyilik yapti ve yeniden icimizi umut ve aklimizi kararlilikla doldurdu. Babam icin yaptigi arastirmalar sirasinda Amerika'li Koma uzmani Doktor Robert J. Doman Jr'in bu yazisini buldu. http://bio-medical.com/news_display.cfm?mode=EEG&newsid=25
Yazida Dr Doman, komada olan hastalarin, hastanelerde tipik yapilanin cok ustunde bir seviyede, yogun bir stimulasyon programiyla ilerleme katedebilecekleri anlatiyor.

Bunun uzerine Dr Doman'i biraz daha arastirdim ve kurdugu NACD adli vakfa ulastim (NACD.org). Vakiftan edindigim Komayi Atlatma Programi baska bir cigir acti bizim icin. Babamin butun tinilarini gun icinde uyaracak, disiplinle yapilmasi gereken siki bir program verdiler bize. Su ana kadar gecirdigimiz vakit daha iyi degerlendirilebilirmis hissi uyandiriyor ilk basta. Ama onemli olan programa simdi baslamaktan ve uygulamaktan kaybedecegimiz yok, kazanacagimiz ise cok. Uygulamaya hemen geciyoruz ve annem, Asli, Sule bir arada babamda ilerleme saglamayi kafaya koyduk bu ay. Gelismeleri buradan bildirecegiz.

Ayse'nin bize bir baska harika onerisi daha oldu. Kendisi NY'un unlu pastacilarindan biri (Asli'nin dugun pastasini tatanlariniz bilirler). Son yillarda ise saglikli beslenme ve besinler konularinda uzmanlik edindi. Bize babamin besininin icerigini sordu ve bu durumlarda kullanilan bazi populer besinlerin icinde besin degeri dusuk misir surubu gibi yapay maddeler bulundugunu anlatti. Agustos ayinda, bir ay boyunca babama besin degeri yusek dogal bir karisim yapmayi onerdi.

Bize ogrettigin bu paha bicilmez bilgiler ve yanimizda oldugun icin tesekkurler Ayse....


ASLI AND I became friends with Ayse Dizioglu and Ugur Koyluoglu in NY. It did not take us long to become close friends with this sincere and brilliant couple, and since then, they have been an important part of our lives.

Ayse, Ugur and our parents met in NY, and both sides loved each other right away. I always thought Ayse's mom and mine, with their cool attitude, were very similar to each other. Ayse and Ugur became even closer to my dad in the last few years, after they bought a cute house on the Bosphorus for their summer vacations from NY with kids, and consulted with him on real estate, construction issues.

Ayse is a person who approaches every problem with solutions and is immensely positive. Her attitude toward my dad's situation has been no different. In every conversation we had, she reminded us that my dad needs time to recuperate and that he would recover at his own pace. I have unlimited trust in Ayse's opinions and the potential of what positive thinking can achieve.

Ayse helped us in a huge way last week and filled our hearts with hope and our minds with determination. In her research for solutions to my dad's situation, she encountered this article by the US coma expert Dr. Robert J. Doman Jr. http://bio-medical.com/news_display.cfm?mode=EEG&newsid=25
Dr Doman explains in the article that comatose patients can improve by an intense stimulation program, above and beyond what is typically done at hospitals.

After reading this, I researched Dr. Doman a bit more and got in touch with the organization he founded called NACD (www.nacd.org). The Coma Recovery Program that I obtained from the foundation opened new windows of opportunity for us. NACD gave us a regimented program to stimulate all my dad's senses every day, which requires a disciplined execution. At first look, the program made me think of the time passed in the last 5 months that could have been used in a better way. But the important thing is that there is nothing to lose and a ton to gain from starting the program now and executing vigorously. We are immediately starting it and my mom, Asli, Sule and I are determined to get results in the next month. We will be reporting on the progress here.

Ayse had another terrific recommendation for us. She is a well-known pastry chef in NY (those who were at Asli's wedding and tasted her cake know), and, in recent years, she became an expert in holistic nutrition. She asked us what the contents of my dad's nutritional pack was. She said that the solutions that are typically used in these situations are often poor in nutritional value and filled with artificial ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup. She offered to make a solution that is natural and high in nutrition for 1 month in August.

Ayse, thank you for teaching us this invaluable info and for being with us....

    Elimden şu an için geçmiş olsun demekten başka birşey gelmiyor ama madem Halis bey zihin jimnastiği ve heyecanlandırıcı mevzularla kendine geliyor hem zihin jimnastiği hem de gülmece olacak bir sour sorayım:
