Re: FMP Danang

 

Hello everyone in the Danang medical center!  

First of all, Dennis and I want to thank the whole staff from the bottom of our hearts for taking us in and caring for both Dennis and me during a very difficult time.  Even though Dennis was going through a lot of pain and the both of us were going through a lot of stress, we are pleasantly grateful for your kindness and your professionalism. 

On behalf of Dennis and myself, I want to thank Dr. Chris Suazon and his medical staff for being very attentive to Dennis’s needs. I definitely want to thank Maverick and especially Hang (Theresa) for being VERY patient with Dennis when he did not quite behave himself. I wish I caught the names of the other nurses and staff to thank them individually. 

 

I personally want to also thank Binh and her administrative staff for being patient with me as we prepared for our return home. I was often confused about the process partially due to the stress and not being prepared to handle a situation like this, but Binh and the staff made sure that I understood exactly what was going on and that everything was in proper order. Again, I wish I could thank everyone in your staff by name. 

And thank you to Dr. Chris and Mark from Saigon for accompanying us on the trip back home. It seems to me that everything went smoothly. I hope that they both got a restful and enjoyable stay in Hawaii. 

As for Dennis’s progress, we arrived in Honolulu on Friday, 11/17 and he had the surgery the next morning. My understanding is that they implanted a metal plate and didn’t have to do a replacement. After spending a few days in the hospital, he was transferred to a rehabilitation center. Since the day after surgery, he’s been doing some walking with the assistance of a walker and walking longer distances each day. He’s still in bed most of the day, but he still tries to come out of the bed without the nurses knowing. (In fact, the nurses reported to me that he got out of bed last night without assistance, and he set off an alarm which caused the nurses to panic. Luckily he was still standing when the nurses found him.)  He may be able to return home in a few days. 

 
We both talk about and sometimes laugh about our trip. He actually remembers most of his hallucinations like standing on the ledge or having his old friends visit him while we were in Vietnam and knows that they weren’t real. Psychologically, he is pretty close to normal, except he still sees things once in a while. 

I don’t think Dennis will be traveling much in the future, but I definitely would like to visit Vietnam again and resume my trip from where we left off. I would like to understand more about your beautiful country and people. I just need to become brave enough to cross the streets. 

Best success to everyone at the Danang Family Medical Practice and again we thank you for being a safe haven for us foreigners traveling through your beautiful country.

Re: Dr. Jonathan Halevy

 

Good evening,

 

I know that I thanked both you and Jonathan today for your visit and the superb lecture, but I do want to stress how much we appreciate your contribution to the students' understanding and intellectual development.

 

Jonathan's pedagogic approach of posing challenging ideas and questions, works really well. The kids have to think - very honestly - which they're not always asked to do in the Viet system. We try to work that way at SIC, and to have re-inforcement from a visiting expert is terrific.

 

Please convey my appreciation to Jonathan - I don't have his email.

 

Our best wishes to you!

I only wish the medical care I get in the USA was as great as the care I got here.

Re: Dr. Jane Shadwell-Li

Dear Dr. Jane Li,

Thank you so much for all you did for Anders and I. We both really appreciate it. We are currently on our way to Hanoi, and then home. Without your generosity, things would have been very different.

 

Thanks! - R_.
