With a Little Help of Our Friends

Hola Kristiina,

It is a beautiful sunny day in here, and I am confident you have sent this wonder to us. Dani had a great drive on Friday, when he visited the Korean Hospital. He was cheerful and excited, as I thought it was going to be. He laughed and shared his “shark-charm” to his car mates and people in the hospital.



However, and that kept us kind of baffled, there was not much information we could get from Dani’s visit to Dr. Marsha. Apparently the doctor needed background information regarding Dani’s mother pregnancy and his early life. Unfortunately, it is unlikely to obtain this information as Dani arrived to Sele Enat Mahiber from another orphanage and there are no records available.

We have been brainstorming during the weekend and came up with different curative ideas. We could provide for physiotherapy, for diction therapy, for orthopaedic support, and even for education, as Dani has not attended yet school. But none of us is a health professional and do not know well if it is going to help to a high degree. Nevertheless, we think it is not going to harm, as I have personally experienced his physical progress during my time with him, so we agreed to start helping Dani with physiotherapy and a consultation by an occupational therapist.

Therefore, Kristiina, we will keep looking for a doctor who could treat Dani and reportedly agree on what his medical problem is.

Regarding Dr. Kiplesund, the neurologist you managed to find with your tireless networking, I have to say that I did not get any reply to my emails. But I am confident he did not learn about them, probably due to some technical problems or electronic address misspell. But I am confident as well that publishing this lines will, somehow, reach him. We are hopeful in this, and we are grateful for any support from people who could help finding a doctor for Dani.

Kristiina, do not think we got disappointed by the last event. As your mom says, we knew it was not only provide and raise money, but a common and dedicated effort towards Dani’s health improvement, and that will take time. We feel strong, and every step backward will only be to get impulse.

And now, Pupunen, enjoy with us Dani’s sunniness, the one that draws smiles from every person that crosses his path.
