This picture doesn’t come close to showing how high tech the operating room was, where I had my surgery
Walking the Green Mile
For the last week I’ve been out of commission because I was in for surgery. The hospital I had my operation at had some of the most high tech equipment in it I’ve ever seen. What I found extremely interesting was not just the operating room itself but green mile before it and after it. I think a lot of misinformation has been put out about Russian medicine. I will be sharing more about this and why family becomes such important part in events like mine in Russia. One of the most incredible parts about Russian medicine is it’s available to everyone who holds a medical card. The process of getting a medical card is a long one that means lots of perseverance and hard work. This card as I understand it is like having a social security card in the States. It’s something you must have if you live in Russia. Over the course of the next week I will be sharing with you my experience, my thoughts, feelings, and understanding of the whole process. I’m still in process of recovery so I may make it part of the series as well. Over this last week I’ve been graced with having several guest bloggers post their articles here on “Life in Russia. I also have several other guest bloggers posting articles this next week as I recover. I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive as I’ve gone through this. And again thank you for following “Life in Russia”.
