ご無沙汰しております! Long Time away from My Gallery!

ご友人のみなさま

ご無沙汰しております。世界一周クルーズの記事を突如中断して一か月、実はこのひと月は初めて経験した悪夢のような日々でした。

家族の一員がある日突然緊急手術を要すると医師に告げられ、入院し即手術をほどこされました。9日後退院。退院3日目に高熱で再入院、命の瀬戸際を往復。明らかな手術感染症でした。本人が体力があったためどうにか生き延び退院にこぎつけましたが、院内感染の恐怖を身をもって経験しました。今思えばそんなに早急な手術は不要であったことに気づき、医師の不十分な説明のまま「緊急」という言葉に踊らされた家族一同今反省することしきりです。

院内感染は時に、自分の抱える病よりも恐ろしいことを知りました。

ご無沙汰のお詫びがてら、何かのご参考になればと、家庭内のことで恐縮ですがアップしてみました。

ちなみにこんな本がベストセラーになっています。/ The book titled "47 rules to avoid being killed by medical doctors" is the best selling book in Japan since the end of December '12. They sold 880,000 copies in 6 months.The auther is a medical doctor of the 40-year career in hospitals.

It is a long time since my last post!
I was undergoing the nightmare-like days for the past one month for the first time in my life.

One of my family members was suddenly told by the doctor to be in need of an urgent surgical operation. We wavered with the word "urgent" uttered by the doctor and agreed with his direction of operation.

It took nine days at hospital before the patient came back home. A nightmare arose three days after that. His temperature rose as high as 40℃ /100°F and became uncontrollable. He was hospitalized again and had to spend 20 more days there to fight back obvious operational infection. As he has been a man of physical strength, he could survive this time. But if your family member happens to be physically weak or aged, infection could overwhelm his or her life. We now regret that we were foolishly carried away by the doc's simple one word 'urgent'. Thinking back, there was no such urgency that we did not have time for second opinions at other hospitals.
Sometimes nosocomial infection is more scary than your own disease.

I had led a life of "Leap before you look". Now I realized a real meaning of the original saying.
