The brain-dead boy woke up to just call her

HANOI Mai Hung Thuan, 12 years old, obediently sat down to eat each piece of grandmother’s rice in the hospital room, where he was treated after brain death for 4 years.

“Grandma! Grandma!”.

Thuan called to her. This is the first word I have spoken since being admitted to the Department of Pediatric Lecture – Children’s Languages, Central Acupuncture Hospital. Today, the meals of the two grandchildren have pickles and meat.

“He ate very well, every meal is full of a meal, anything you can eat. But if I do not feed, the boy will endure, not demanding,” she said. That is my grandmother – Mrs. Dao Thi Vinh, 56 years old. Thuan’s parents parted ways, and she lived with her grandparents since childhood. Occasionally during a meal when strangers came to visit from another room, Thuan smiled and turned away embarrassedly.

Looking at the handsome and handsome face of Thuan’s shy reflexes, few people thought that she was a brain-dead boy, not aware of anything. My heart is still beating, my body is still pink and healthy, but I cannot speak, nor can I do anything by myself, from eating to personal hygiene.

Mai Hung Thuan boy is the oldest pediatric pediatric pediatric pediatric linguist who has been treated for more than 4 years. My grandmother said that in June 2015, when Thuan was 8 years old, she went to the river to play alone and unfortunately fell into the river and drowned. When she was discovered, she was in a state of stiffness, limbs and wide eyes.

Thuan received artificial respiration, then his relatives immediately transferred him to General Hospital of Thanh Hoa province, gave first aid and then transferred to the National Hospital of Pediatrics. Doctors diagnosed Thuan had a prolonged loss of oxygen to the brain, leading to brain tissue death. He was oxygenated, put a tube through his mouth to the stomach to give milk and food.

A month later, the doctor informed Thuan to be a plant, unable to cure, the family should take home to take care of that day or that day. “Both my grandfather and I were so pitiful that we decided to still have water to slap, take him to medical treatment, but now let him lie in the poor house,” she shared.

Thuan was transferred to the Central Acupuncture Hospital. For two months, my eyes couldn’t see anything. Dr. Duong Van Tam, Head of the Department of Pediatric Lecture, Advocates for the family to take him to Central Eye Hospital for a pupil examination. The family also determined that if this time, she did not see anything else, she should go home.

Luckily, the eye doctor concluded that pupils were good, because they had problems with their brain so they could not see. I continue to go to Central Acupuncture Hospital for treatment.

In the morning, Doctor Tam used three techniques of electromagnetism, magnetism, acupressure, massage on acupuncture points that took about 30 minutes. In the afternoon, Thuan was massageed by hands and feet, combined with taking brain tonic, injections … The first few days of acupuncture, the boy struggled and needle was pulled out, the doctor had to tie both hands and feet. into the edge of the bed.

After several treatments, my tears started to flow. The grandmother choked with emotion, holding the flower held in front of her grandson. Seeing the flower, Thuan followed, smiling. I have seen it.

A year later, Thuan campaigned, could walk but did not know how to eat and drink. The legs that had shrunk before, smaller than their hands, after a year, had become much more inflated. The first sound I made was the “Grandma” sound. That is the only word I can say, up to now.

Doctor Duong Van Tam said that with a person who died in the brain, Western medicine was not treated. Patients will live plants for life, or some cases of brain death organ donation. However, Oriental medicine can be treated to improve the patient’s body functions by methods of impacting acupuncture points, meridians such as electromagnet, magnet, massage, reflexology. The course of treatment takes place daily for a month, take a 15-day break and continue the next treatment course, patiently every year.

Pros are no exception. Thuan receives several treatments a year, each lasting for a month and then returning home. Every time only my sister went to take care of me. Grandpa stayed home to be a worker, taking money to support his grandchild. After every treatment, Thuan was taken to her hometown by her grandmother. The neighbors’ children came to play. I just sat in the corner smiling.

At night, my grandmother slept with me, afraid she would lie down alone. Sometimes, when Thuan had a seizure during the night, Ms. Vinh had to stay awake to look. The treatment was long and persistent, but my grandchildren were patient and optimistic: “My grandparents will get old and weak later, I’ll be fine, I just hope that I can take care of myself, I just have a pond.” wish it were that “.
