(7 Years old, Female): Prepared by: Claire Jinny
July 20, 2013 Consultation
My 7 year old daughter, Caroline, was diagnosed with unilateral hearing loss (UHL) on her left ear. Her doctor (Dr. Tomas at ENTAA care, Maryland) told us that her auditory sensor that connects between her brain and left ear didn’t develop at the time of birth and for that reason there is no treatment available for her. Because of UHL, Caroline has difficulty localizing sound and was showing delay in speech language, poor eye sight with seldom squint left eye, and has social-emotional difficulties with other kids. Caroline also seems to have signs of fatigue as the day progress and often complains the neck pain. Caroline’s spine is curved when she sits and show salient bulge in the middle Parts of her back. In academic area, Caroline’s homeroom teacher has noticed that she is such a good student and being a class role model for most of the times but sometimes has problem paying attention and seems lost on the subject. Caroline is aware of her condition and has low self-esteem. She often pretends she hears words even when she doesn’t hear them clearly, and she acts like she understood.
When Dr. Young Yi examines Caroline, he has a different opinion about her symptom. Considering Caroline’s history from the birth and his examination, he concluded that all this symptoms are caused because her auditory nerve system was damaged at the time of her birth during the hard labor.
나는 선교팀에서 아이들 티칭을 하고 있다. 같은 선교팀 선생님의 아들이 있는데 그 아이의 담당 선생님을 맡고 있다. 어느날 선교팀 김 전도사가 닥터리 의 소문을 듣고 그 아이를 데리고 치료를 받으러 다닌다는 소리를 들었다. 그런데 그 아이는 정신분열증 증상을 보이고 있던 아이었는데 어느날 부터인가 그아이가 학교에 와서 하는 행동을 보면 이전과는 전혀 다른 모습을 보게 되었는데 (정신분열증 증상을 보이지 않는모습) 원만한 교우관계, 발표력, 에너지 넘치는 목소리 , 정돈된 모습 등 그 날 7.21.13 토요일 김 전도사가 나에게 닥터리 의 소식을 조심스럽게 전하여 주었다.
