I stayed at the hospital last night. Could not update my blog as I did not have my computer. Hajime is doing well.
The video that I created is getting a great response with increased number of access to my blog. Looks like the words have spread around at the hospital as well, where every person I ran into made a comment, “ I watched your video. It was beautiful! Brought me to tears. You are a very strong person”.I feel touched.
As the video is full of memories of Hajime for us, it makes me very emotional.
However, I was a little concerned that people may not get the message that I wanted to convey. I was wrong, it moved many people deeply.
Hajime's smile is truly warm and soothing. It gives me courage. It gives me energy. It gives me hope. I will cherish every day and keep it up for Hajime.
Today, his therapist and a computer rep from the hospital set up a connection for his iPod, so that he can listen to music.
Hajime listened to his favorite song called MACROSS “Do you remember love?” many times. He has never said he wanted to listen to music, but he was so happy listening to music for a long time.
It makes me happy that at lease there is one thing that he can enjoy.
