SO SAD :(

October 15, 2009

I learned that little Norbert still isn’t walking.  He is now 2 years and 5 months old.  Ramona and Cassian of course can’t afford to take him to a doctor.  My husband and I sent them $100 because we were very concerned about this darling little boy.  Ramona immediately took him to a doctor.  In the photos, you will see how happy and hopeful she was.

Poor Norbert is having blood drawn.  They had to stick him three times before they found the vein :(

The blood work came back from the lab and it is very bad.  Every single thing they tested him for came back with bad results.  They even suspect he has an infection somewhere in his little body.  The doctor was cross with Ramona – angry that she hadn’t brought this child in a long time ago.  I wonder how she could have done this????  It cost $8 or $9. for the bus ride and that doesn’t count the ‘bribery’ money for the doctor.  A Romanian doctor will not see a patient without extra money from the patient on TOP of what the government pays them in salary.   

After the bloodwork, Norbert was sent to radiology and those results were even worse.  There is something in the hip area that is preventing him from walking.  They think he will need surgery and they said it was very grave.  Norbert has to see a pediatric specialist this week.  Please keep your fingers crossed for this little boy.  I will keep you posted.

Regards,

Tika
