He is intubated and always points to the tube because he cannot speak. Then I reassure him, I tell him to be calm and that when the doctors decide to remove it, only they can, he will speak. And so you see that he relaxes.
It has a strength like a lion. When I get to him, the first thing he does is look at me and then he points to my hand and squeezes it very tightly. I’m always there with him and until he falls asleep I can’t get away. When he falls asleep and relaxes then I greet him, then I go and return quickly.

“He has never been of many words. He has always communicated with his eyes, so we understand him on the fly because the eyes were his form of communication even before, so even now it’s easier for us because when he looks at us, even if he doesn’t have the word, we can understand him.“.
