Alex Zanardi, the son speaks: “We speak to him. Dad will make it. It has extraordinary strength. "
Interviewed by Corriere della Sera, Nicolò Zanardi, Alex's son, says:
“Dad is a little better.
The doctors explained to us in detail the whole path that will have to follow.
They give us a lot of good news and fortunately.
But the best is that today we are already here, for rehabilitation, and only a month has passed, exactly one month since the accident ”.
“It is no longer life threatening – he explains – and it is already a lot, but it still has a very long path ahead of it, and we know it, we are prepared.
We are also happy because his recovery was much faster than we expected.
But it shouldn't be surprising: this is dad.
The energy of that man is incredible, he has extraordinary strength. "
Can family members interact with him?
“Interacting is another thing. But now there are encouraging signs.
I repeat, it will still take a long time ”.
"I have never lost a single one of my shifts at his side in the hospital – he continues – We commute every day with my mother, three hundred kilometers a day between round trips".
"We talk to him. Now that it is no longer sedated you can. Before it was just contraindicated. Doctors explained that external stimuli would interfere with sedation.
Now instead we divide the tasks: we give the emotional stimuli, the doctors the neurological ones ". (Source: Corriere della Sera ).
