biraz umut/ a little bit of hope

Dun norolog Ari Bey'le konusmamiz az da olsa umut vericiydi. Kendisi Halis'i son zamanlarda biraz daha iyice gordugunu, spastisitenin azaldıgını soyledi. Bizce daha umut verici olan ise 'Halis Bey algılıyor ama ilişki kuramiyor, daha dogrusu cok kısa sure icin ilişki kurabiliyor, goz teması veya seslenildiginde başını dondurmesi gibi' demesiydi.

Tabii bunu duyunca bastan beri yanında dikkatli konusmaya gayret edilmesinin, olumlu ve sevgi dolu mesaj verilmesinin ve hatta hersey normalmiş gibi konusmalar yapmaya calışmanın ne kadar isabetli oldugunu dusunduk.

Daha yapılacak cok sey, gidilecek cok yol var.


YESTERDAY my conversation with Halis' neurologist Ari Bey was promising. He said that he's been seeing Halis doing slightly better and that the spastic activity has reduced. What was even more promising for us was Doctor Ari Bey saying "Halis Bey has awareness, but he cannot form two-way communication. To say it better, he can communicate momentarily, such as making eye contact and turning his head when he's called."

Of course, when we heard this we realized once again how important it is to try to speak carefully around him, giving him positive and loving messages and speaking to him about daily matters as if everything is normal.

There is a lot to do, a long road to travel for us.
