Dani has now finished his course and is ready to receive the yearly certificate of completion. This is rewarding for him, as well as for all of us.
Please see Tesfaye´s last news on his progress:
program with great motivation and interest as usual and he has been showing
improvement in his gross and functional skills.
He will follow up program with doctor Tim in Cure Hospital for the second
time after six months in December 21st to recheck his level of improvement after
he had had minor surgery one year ago.
Illona invited, Timo (physiotherapist), Sari(physiotherapist), and Tomi.
I just read an e-mail coming from Tesfaye. As usual, he tells me realistic Dani´s progress. But in his realism, he conveys a special optimism. You cannot imagine, Kristiina, how well this optimism feels, and believe it, it is not me the luckiest person to profit from his optimism, but Dani.
Please, find a few excerpts from his latest messages about Dani:
after my last email, he didn’t show any withdrawal symptoms since
Dani’s new year school registration will start on Tuesday October the second. He is very eager to go to the special school after three months of break. It will be a good place for him to improve his cognitive ability.
Dr. Zeneb’s will check at new year´s appointment, Dani´s state after the carbamazapine reduction. I have explained him that his epileptic condition is stable throughout the two
months after the reduction of the medication. And he has suggested to continue with same dose and to check results again after three months.”
If I were to express in written how much I appreciate the work Tesfaye is doing, I would need several blogs. He is consistent and caring. He gives away smiles and shares comfort. In exchange, he receives trust and so much love.
Tesfaye has the utmost level of dedication I have encountered. Therefore, I am humbly paying him a little homage in this post.
Thank you, Tesfaye, for taking so much care about Dani and the other children at the Special Needs Ward.
We are enjoying Spring, as well as Dani, as it is changing weather, here and there. It seems we aren´t that far from each other in this time of the year. Spring time comes with hopes.
Please find some excerpts from Tesfaye´s great job with Dani:
to Dani and he is responding with great smile. Dani’s appointment in April eleven, in prosthetics orthopaedic center went very well. They have taken his precast and they will let me know by the time they make ready the KAFO cast and i am waiting for their call.
Dani is doing good with all his health conditions and he
has continued to go to school and physiotherapy schedules
as well, although he is not practicing walking as expected because of his KAFO is not yet ready until the prosthetic orthosists has taken his measurement.
After we have explained Dani is in good condition and his epileptic attack is almost controlled, the Doctor has decided to decrease the medication for five months.
The first year was the beginning of a beautiful project. Resilience channeled towards assistance.
The second year was fond memories. Assistance settled, provided continuity to the project, and hopefully Dani felt a glimpse of routine in his daily work.
The third year has being joy through inspiration. You keep strongly inspiring us.
Thank you Kristiina for the values left.
Thank you to those who directly and from the shadows keep believing in this project and in Dani.
