Daevidの容態です
Daevidの容態です (for English, see below): 6月9日火曜日朝に手術が行われます。黄色ブドウ球菌に感染した頚部の皮膚がんの除去手術です。
3月初旬に頚部にのう胞が現れたのですが、その治療がうまくいかず、黄色ブドウ球菌感染を起こしてしまい、その結果のう胞自体の治療が遅れる間、ますます大きくなっていきました。
その後自宅前で、濡れて滑りやすくなっていたコンクリート上で転んだため、上腕骨を骨折してしまいました。
その3週間後、のう胞の感染治療のため1週間入院、この時のう胞が皮膚がんだったことがわかりました。
この時点でyou me & us日本ツアーを含む5-6月の全日程参加不可能となったのです
手術後1週間入院し、退院後放射線治療をするそうです。
全身麻酔も手術もまったく初めてのことだそうで、それなりに不安を感じているそうですが、楽観的ではあるそうです。
はやくよくなりますように!

From Planet Gong:
"First thing on Tuesday morning in Australia daevid is having surgery to remove a Staph infected cancerous growth from his neck. The operation will also involve the removal of some nerves and moving a bit of muscle to replace some which will be lost from the site of the infection.

A cyst appeared on his neck sometime before the Gong Brazil dates in early March. Unfortunately the initial treatment of the cyst on his neck resulted in daevid contracting a Golden Staph (Staphylococcus aureus) infection which compromised and delayed further treatment on the cyst, which kept growing.

Then things got really difficult - daevid badly fractured his upper left arm falling on the concrete path to his house. It was wet and slippy and over he went - bendy has never been a useful term in describing daevid's physical frame - and unfortunately so it proved.

The nature and position of the fracture meant that it could not put in a cast - only held as immobile as possible in a sling. This made many of his regular quite energetic health regimes, and even the cutting of food (all those salads and fruit he enjoys so much), impossible, and sleep (in a chair) as near as impossible.

Three weeks after breaking his arm and while trying to reduce the Staph infection to the point where it would be possible to operate on the cyst (and also possibly operate on the fracture as well, which wasn't healing as it should) daevid got to such a low point that he had to spend a week in hospital. It was then that the cyst was diagnosed as cancerous.

Daevid's physiological 'perfect storm' was complete and it was at this point that his participation in the Gong dates in June, which he was trying so hard to get well for, was just not going to happen.

After the operation daevid will spend a week in hospital before going home. He will then have a period of radiation therapy on his neck and will obviously need some solid recovery time to ensure the cancer has no reason to return.

All things considered daevid is in good spirits, although in a fair bit of discomfort. Naturally he is aprehensive about the general anesthetic and the operation as he has experienced neither before. He remains optimistic, yet realistic about the future and is looking forward to being restored to rude health - and let's face it no-one does 'rude' health quite like hymn-self.

If you would like to help by tuning in at 9.00 p.m. GMT on Monday 9th (close to the starting time of the operation in Australia) and sending healing vibes to the old reprobate via Radio Gnome Invisible (step away from the modern 'mediaeval' technology, cut out the dodgy middlemen and go direct) you will be joining many of us doing the same."
