His Beautiful Smiles

Searching Cure for Progressive Degenerative Disease

 

泌尿器科検診(Urology Visit)


Edit Category 病院 (Hospital)
Leo、今年初の病院。
Leo's first office visit this year.

今日は泌尿器科に行ってきた。(といっても私は仕事でママが連れて行ってくれたんだけど…)
Today was Urology (I was at work, so my wife took him there)

2歳のときから気にはなっていて、定期的に診てもらってたけど…
We had been worried about it and it had been checked periodically, but ...

左の玉玉ちゃんが… 見当たらない…
His left ball seems missing ...


一昨年、昨年までは、「まあ、その内降りてくるでしょう」と、親の心配をよそに専門医はかる~い返事。
In the last two years, the urologists were saying "No worries. It will come down eventually."

でも今年は、「う~~ん。降りてこないから、手術ですね」と、またかる~い感じ…
But this year, they said "Well, not yet come down, so surgery is necessary now."

ちょ~~っと、ちょっと、ちょっと!
Wait, wait, wait!

しゅ、手術?
Surgery?

こんな大事なところを手術?
Surgery on that important part of the body?

そのことをママ経由で聞いて、あせる自分…
My wife told me what the doctors said... and I was scared at first...

でも、よく話を聞いてみると、よくあることらしい。
But then, when I listened what they said more carefully, I realized it is not a rare thing for little boys.

手術も一時間でちょちょっとですぐ帰れるとのこと。
The surgery itself will be done within an hour and he can go back home immediately.

ちょっと一安心。
So relieved...

降りてこないままだと、温かい体の中心部に近いところにあるから生殖的に玉玉ちゃんに悪く、また、あるべきところにないからガン化する可能性もあるとのことで、近いうちにスケジュールすることに…

They say it is not good for the ball to be close to the warmer part of the body for reproduction reason, and also it could become cancer if it continued staying at the wrong place.
So we are scheduling the surgery now.

左脚が神経的に突っ張ってるから、周りの筋肉も突っ張って引っ張っちゃうのか...
I guessed it may have been caused by the spastic left leg, which makes the surrounding muscle tense, ending up pulling and holding the ball there...

それとも、玉玉ちゃんが上にあって、痛いか気になって左脚が突っ張るのか。
Or the ball has been staying at a wrong place, making Leo feel pain or annoyed, and that's why his left leg is spastic...

おそらくは前者なんだろう…
I don't know which one is right, but probably the more likely reason is the former...

まあ、理由はどうであれ、また、全身麻酔…か…(涙
In any case, it requires a general anesthesia... again... :-(

もう何度したんだろう?
How many times has he had it already?

そしてまた体にメスを…
And how many times does he need to feel pain like this?

まだ5歳なのに…
He is still just 5 years old!

もう何度痛い思いをしたんだろう…
He has already gone through enough painful things...

また痛い思いをさせてしまうけど、ゴメンな、Leo...
I cannot help but feel sorry for Leo...

なんでLeoだけこんな大変な思いをしないといけないんだろうな…
How come does he need to always go through this...

神様は不公平だよな...ホント...
It is unfair, God... It really is...

できることなら、本当に変わってあげたい...
I wish I could go through this instead of him...

自分の体をLeoにあげたい...
I wish I could even give my body to him...

医学が進歩して、それができるのであれば、
If medical science advances further, allowing things happen,

迷いなくそれをしてあげたい…
then I would love to devote my body to him...

with no hesitation...
