Nasıl Yapmalı?/ What to do?


2 gündür hastaneye gidemedim ve bu beni huzursuz ediyor. Defne'nin gelişi bir heyecan, mutluluk ve degişiklik yarattı haliyle. Halis'i ziyaret eden Dr. Mert ona iyi bakıldığından emin olmamı söyledi. İleriye dönük karar verirken Halis ne isterdi, ev veya hastane arasında tercihi ne olurdu diye düşünmek gerek dedi. Bu söz beni hem rahatlattı hem büyük bir karar olduğundan ölçüp biçip Aslı ve Defne ile konuşup gerçekleştirilmeli. Kuvvetli bir antibiyotik almaya başladı, enfeksiyon durumunda başka çare yok.

Bugün 29 Ekim. Yağmur var.


I haven't been to the hospital in two days and this makes me anxious. Defne's arrival brought excitement, happiness and change as usual. Dr. Mert who visited Halis reassured me that he was been well taken care of. In planning for future, he said we must try to imagine what Halis would have wanted, what his preference would have been between hospital and home. This comforted me, but at the same time made me realize that it is a big decision that I need to confer with Asli and Defne. Meanwhile, Halis was started on a strong antibiotic. This is the only way to go for an infection.

Today is October 29th, the Republic Day. It's raining.

  1. Thanks for posting in such very good English Figen.
    As you say, it's a very big decision.
    It sounds like an easy question, "What would Halis prefer, to be in hospital, or in his own home?"
    Of course one would say "his own home", but if he knew that to be at home would place even more burden on you, then I'm not so sure he would want that.
    If it was me I wouldn't.
    Whatever decision you come to will be the right one because you have deep wisdom and that will guide you.
    Jimmy.
