Igor is very funny…he is with us at the Hemophilia Center of Sao paulo  from the day he was borned.

At first he was afraid of needles , natural…Card 28 and then little by little he was trained by our nurse  Eliane and he got more confidence by playing with the Flash cards HEMOACTION (this card is number 27) and he smiled when I asked him: “ah ..Igor is in this phase now??” NOWADAYS…THINGS  are smoother..he likes to come to the Center and we wellcome him! Bravo Igor.:)

No começo Igor tinha muito medo de tudo, claro que de agulhas também. Ficava muito grudado na mamãe Sylvia…ele é muito engraçado, esperto…e vai para escolinha! Fomos fazendo nosso trabalho de conscientização e aprendizagem la no centro de hemofilia: com a Eliane e a equipe ele foi se acostumando as agulhas de auto-infusão de fator e aos poucos…se soltando e ficando feliz. Parabéns!
