salud en los tiempos de la corona

contents如果有得揀乜嘢時候唔好病,咁應該係社會動盪,又或是病毒猖獗嘅時候。我老豆從舊年2019嘅十一月九號到而家五月尾廿八號差不多折騰咗半年。乜嘢搞到佢囉囉攣?米就係偏食引致膽石阻塞膽管發炎、肝酵素上升等問題。經過兩次住院,無數次社康護士上門洗傷口、換紗布之後,上星期五那一針鈎住傷口嘅針最終鬆脫。輾轉由母親陪伴到北區醫院後,日間手術部門的醫護把傷口縫合,暫時解決了對父親來說既重複、又戰戰兢兢、又知啲唔知啲嘅家居護理服務。觀乎其飲食習慣-少飲水,少蔬菜-不出一兩年內想又要遭受折磨!所以腦筋清醒嘅時候,應該養成良好的飲食習慣,免得自己和身邊人受苦又受罪!

plastic forceps, dressing tray, sterile field, non woven sponges… these things have been repeatedly consumed for the past six months on my dad, during the two hospitalizations and as well as the many community health nurses’ at-home follow-up services. owing to his old age, my dad did not have his gallbladder removed since he had this acute inflammation and fever in early November 2019. If he were 15 years or more younger, the surgeons would have removed that gallstone generating organ without second though, as i deduced simply by eavesdropping his ward neighbour. fortunately for him, that organ is apparently back to functioning after prolonged external tube draining, wound-dressing, etc. just one and a half week short of 6 months. if there is any advice for those of you have a weakness for unhealthy, greasy, low-fiber, dehydrated daily diet, my blunt and my-own-dad-tormented advice is DROP YOUR BAD HABITS WHILE YOU ARE STILL YOUNG(ER) AND SANE. it not only hurts your eventual caretakers, in this case mostly  my mom, and part-time-wise, me, additionally it will make taking any remedial actions almost impossible, as in my father’s case who has alzheimers and his stubborn,  deranged perceptions of his own well being or the lack of therein really has been painful and brings anguish to everyone involved. he gets a break now until his bad habits get the better of him in a few years time.
