Durante o acantonamento Alexandre, que tem hemofilia A leve (mais de 5% de fator VIII no sangue) foi uma novidade para o resto dos jovens que tinham hemofilia  grave. Eles ríam e ficavam brincando  que Alexandre “era falsificado, do Paraguai!!” 🙂  porque não sangrava tanto quanto eles durante o ano!

Todos foram aprendendo a conhecer mais sobre as DIFERENÇAS DENTRO DE UMA MESMA DISFUNÇÃO DA COAGULAÇÃO… E AO FINAL DOS 2 DIAS NINGUÉM SE MACHUCOU, NINGUEM PASSOU MAL! AO CONTRÁRIO SE DIVERTIRAM MUITO.acantonamento-08-0051 Alexandre and Vik my dear collegue social worker 🙂

In that beautiful place, differences appeared when the other fellows with all severe Hemophilia discovered that Alexandre was a mild  hemophiliac. They teased him and called him false -hemophiliac (everything with good humour and fun of course), and with a little bit of envy because he didn´t bleed as much as them during the year…

It was a good opportunity to learn about DIFFERENCES IN A SAME DISORDER. And at the end of the camp, everybody , mild and severe, could enjoy the stay without getting hurt or having a serious bleed. Only Wgner, 13, had to take factor 8 to prevent a start of heat and swolleness in an elbow.acantonamento-08-006

    Eu lembro dos comentários dos meninos e a presença do Alexandre lá foi mais uma lição para todos nós! Mesmo entre pessoas com o mesmo problema, ninguém é igual a ninguém e cada um deve respeitar os limites e o espaço dos outros.

    Achei muito bom quando ele se impôs e explicou pra cada um porque ele é hemofílico, sem ligar para piadinhas ou comentários de ninguém.
