THE DAY I ALMOST DIED IN KOREA - PART SIX


THE DAY I ALMOST DIED IN KOREA - PART SIX

Yes, I almost died in Korea, but it wasn't from some valiant deed that would have earned me a medal for saving the world. Had I died, my body would have probably been used as an experiment to see what the hell had happened! haa!

I was asleep in my barracks room, when I woke up in the middle of the night feeling horrible with a high fever and excruciating pain in my head and the nerves in my spine. Every nerve was enflamed, and couldn't move my neck. I dragged myself out the bed, when I could not stand because I couldn't stand the agonizing pain anymore.

To this day, I just don't know how I made it to the hospital that night. I came so close to passing out, as I kept walking, trying to make it to the hospital. I honestly thought I was going to drop and die alone and in a foreign land.

The hospital staff couldn't believe I had walked half a mile to get to the hospital on post in Camp Humphreys. From there they took me in an ambulance to another hospital located in a camp called youngsun which is located in the capitol city of Seoul. Although, I was close to death, I find it strange that I could smell the ambulance driver, who reeked of Kimch, and had to endure the awful smell for 2 hours, as he drove me to the hospital in Seoul.

Once I arrived at that hospital, I was close to going into a seizure. They immediately knew what was wrong and did a spinal tap and had me with IV's for the 3 days I stayed there. I became frightened when they asked me if I wanted a priest! That's how sick I got!

"No one can confidently say that
he will still be living tomorrow."
- Euripides

I remained in the hospital for 3 days, while they kept a close watch on me. I couldn't even walk and there was nothing else they could do for me but let time take it course. It took me about 2 weeks to start feeling a little better.

There had been a Viral Meningitis epidemic at the DMZ. Viral Meningitis is easy to catch and I had contracted it when I had gone on tour in that area.
