DIAGNOSIS: ” Able to be discernible”

THE “DIAGNOSIS” MOMENT IS A VERY IMPORTANT ONE! receiving the news that your child has a blood clotting disorder called hemophilia is always difficult at first. Who is a parent or who has the same responsabilities as one, knows that raising a child is a complex matter, a passionate one too!
So, my experience tells me that the first moment of diagnosis parents tend to record only the NO, or CAN´T DO, MUSN´T DO, and these words transform in NEVER WILL BE ABLE TO….

DEAR PARENTS, THE INFORMATIONS given IN THE DIAGNOSTIC MOMENT WILL TELL YOU ABOUT HEMOPHILIA in general lines. And these informations ARE TOO MUCH TO “digest” in one meeting. TAKE YOUR TIME…JUST LOOK AT YOUR CHILD AND MEET HIM! “NICE TO MEET YOU SON” card-24.jpg
WITH THE DAYS, WEEKS AND YEARS PASSING YOU AND YOUR BOY WILL LEARN TO KNOW ABOUT his HEMOPHILIA. The very peculiar way hemophilia is expressed in his body/mind.

AND YOU WILL SEE there are plenty of activities and interesting experiences ahead for him to enjoy!

DODÓI :” Machucado, ferida, sangramento”

É IMPORTANTE RE-CONHECER QUÉ TIPO DE MACHUCADO ESTÁ HAVENDO:
DE MODO GERAL exponho aqui os 3 TIPOS:
machucado EXTERNOcard-05.jpg

machucado INTERNOcard-06.jpg
machucado leve ou ESCORRIAÇÃOcard-07.jpg

Nos sangramentos internos e externos é importante aplicar a DDU ou vir para o centro de hemofilia para aplicar o fator.
No machucado leve, geralmente aplicando gelo e fazendo pressão ,o machucado pára de sangrar e não incha! NA DÚVIDA LIGUE PARA NÓS 🙂
