months ago, my then 18 month old son,
had yet another massive asthma attack.
This time was worse than any other; he
actually stopped breathing and spent 24
hours in ICU.
he was alert enough to realise he needed
a drink, he used sign language to ask
for a drink of milk. He continued signing
for a further 24 hours using milk, food,
thank-you and hello.
this period he continued speaking, but
still to this day he will sign and speak
many words at the same time. Thank
you for bringing communication to our
little people long before they can easily
be verbally interpreted.”
