Oana Petrovschi, between medical tests and ice-cream...

Oana Petrovschi has finished today her (almost a week long!) medical tests. For a young girl with her medical problems, walking around few different Bucharest clinics, to have her medical tests required by the Court, it was both painful and a bad experience. It takes almost three days to find and get a meet with one of the doctors named by the Court and many other long hours of waiting on some clinics halls, to get the other tests.

Even more disturbing, all what she gets after almost (another) week lost from her school and treatment, was that she get only an (sooo old) X-ray radiography, instead of a full RMN test (which could reveal by far, a more detailed situation).

Since 2001, all major medical centers in Romania have the newest apparatus to perform the finest and most detailed RMN tests a patient would need (we know it for sure, because we just have same test needed for Andreea Chelaru-a full CD with tens of detailed RMN's , which doctors from around the world asked by us can exam easily, from a top secured web location ).These high tech clinics are privately run but they still have a (highly disputed and coruption related in press, as most of the former neocomunist Gov. contracts) deal with the State official Health system. This make things looking at least strange-why such a complete test was not required by the Court.

Oana lawyer can ask for another medical investigation, if they will not agree with the conclusions from these first ones; and it seems this may be the case, since Oana told us this afternoon that apparently, some of the doctors "conclusions" were that she can perform some sports (?), contrary to all evidences and medical tests made in Hungary. The final decision regarding these medical tests will be taken by the Court next week.

Oana Petrovschi has spend all days since Monday, going to different Bucharest Clinics ; in the afternoons, she met some of her friends and visited mostly same place at Bucharest (older) Mall-the "Vitan" one. Between some salads and ice creams, she has started to enjoy her new status as...a (somehow late) teenage girl.
She gets some ideas about moving to Bucharest after finishing her school (and have had some argues with her boyfriend regarding this). Since she may : 1) have better treatment options in Bucharest (pools available, unlike Deva-where she will have to travel each day like 30 miles with a train to the nearby city where she can have her daily necessary swimming therapy; 2) more career and study-related option, Oana may choose to move at Bucharest this summer. Well, this way she can met more often Mrs. Bitang and maybe they will finally become closer, who knows? Not in this lifetime, of course.

Oana didn't spend (almost) anything from the $4500 she got from Belu, except a new Nokia mobile phone, the older one refusing to work any more since last week (the older being bought at second hand market, it last shorter than a new bought one).Oana knows she will need to spend a lot of money trying to recover as much as possible, her health back; she have deposited in a bank her money and kept "only the minimum necessary to spare these days, for emergencies".

By the middle of the next week, we may hear about any deal with ARDAF, if they can conclude one, to stop the trial going one further. This week, some discussion among Oana lawyer and ARDAF management took place, and Oana have received a very interesting offer from ARDAF (for the moment, we do not reveal details to help them reach a conclusion, if possible, for everybody's benefit and peace of mind). It's about Oana receiving a Bucharest apartment and some extra money (a monthly allowance for the next five years, to take care of her recovery) from ARDAF.

Friday evening, Oana has attended the Grand Final of the Hockey National Championships, among "Steaua" Bucharest and "SC Miercurea Ciuc". She was the special guest of Mr.Kurko, the millionaire who runs the second club, which has sponsored Oana Petrovschi trip and medical tests in Hungary. This time, unlike the previous game, (where Belu and the team did attend) Steaua Club have won the national Title ( 4-3), despite a very "hard" game from the guests side (violent defending after seeing they can't win).

We hope that Mr.Kurko want all the best for Oana, so we can only wonder if asking Oana to attend a few hours long competition in a very cold environment was a good idea for her health (she use to visit only the Bucharest Mall mainly because she can have few hours or a whole afternoon, in a warm environment, Bucharest weather being cold, too ,these days). Oana being a gentle person, maybe she could not refuse such an invitation at a hockey game form her "sponsor", but better look carefully in future at her medical needs.
