Roll on!

Time to move on to a new venue.

All packed out for a 10 day journey….

Three guesses as to where.

Not going back, going forward. I really, REALLY, mean it this time!

The view on my walk to the Army hospital. Kinda got a Stonehenge vibe going, don’t you think?

Lungs are clear and I’m feeling the best I have in three months.  Really liked the doctor who saw me.  He actually sat down with me and we spent 30 minutes talking about where I go from here (health wise).  Now, Dr. Yoo may be hilarious, but damn, he wasted a lot of my time.  This Army Captain treating me did more in one visit than I’ve  accomplished in multiple trips to Soonchunhwang.

Bottom line.  Lungs are clear now and I intend to keep them that way.  There is no reversing COPD, but you can slow the progress.  That is what I intend to do.

Off to bed now.  0755 flight tomorrow which means waking up at 0400.  I’m primed.  Optimistic.  Confident.

See you on the other side!

    Korean. Health care. Sucks.

    If I’m ever in dire need of some radical procedure, I’d rather fly back to the States and pay full price than subject myself to this country’s incompetence. Health care may be cheap here, but you get what you pay for.

    Anyway, glad to hear you’re doing so much better.

  2. Kevin, as you know I’ve been pretty much a defender of Korean medicine in the past, but this has been a real eye-opener for me. Here’s another example: I asked the Army doc for some more juice for my nebulizer. He said he could do that, but the inhaler he had given me works a lot better and I should just stick with that. What the hell? I went out a purchased a nebulizer thinking it was my only option short of hospitalization. All I needed was the inhaler which none of the 3 doctors at Soonchoonhwang ever even suggested.

    Scary!

  3. i’m willing to bet that healthcare in korea is leaps and bounds above that in the pi. peace out!
