Three people, speaking a mixture of Englis h and a foreign language to one another, accompany him. The nurse tries to speak E nglish with the man, but he cannot understand anything she says. Accompanying the elderly man are two women (one elderly and very upset and one younger who stands back from the other three people) and one younger man. The younger man states that the elderly ma n, whose name is Li Ying Bin, is his father; the elderly woman, his mother; and the younger woman, his wife. The son serves as the translator. Li Ying Bin comes from a sm all village close to Beijing. He is 68 years old, and he has been suffering with minor ch est pain and has had trouble breathing for 2 days. He is placed in the cardiac room, and the assessment continues. Mr. Li is on vacation, visiting his son and daughter-in-law in the city. His son and daughter-in-law have been married for only 1 ye ar, but the son has lived in the West for 7 years. Mr. Li’s daughter-in-law looks Chin ese but was born in the United States. She does not speak very many words of Chinese. Further physical assessment reveals that Mr . Li has a history of “heart problems,” but the son does not know much about them. Mr. Li had been to the hospital in Beijing but did not like the care he received there and returned home as soon as possible. He goes to the local clinic periodically when the pa in increases, and the h ealth-care provider in China used traditional Chinese medicine, herbs, and acupuncture. In the past, those treatments relieved his symptoms. Medications are ordered to relieve pain, and Mr. Li undergoes diagnostic procedures to determine his cardiac status. The studies reveal that he did sustain massive heart damage. Routine interventions ar e ordered, including heart medications, anticoagulants, oxygen, intravenous fluids, be drest, and close mon itoring. His condition is stabilized, and he is sent to the cardiac intensive-care unit. In the cardiac unit, the nurse finds Mrs. Li covering up Mr. Li until he sweats, and Mrs. Li argues with the nurse every time her husband is supposed to dangle his legs. She complains that he is too cold and brings in hot herbal beverages for him to drink. She does not follow the nurse’s and physician’s orde rs for dietary restrictions, and she begins to hide her treatments from the staff. Her son and daughter-in-law tr y to explain to her that this is not good, but she continues the traditional Chinese medicine treatments. Mr. Li is a very quiet patient. He li es in bed and never calls for help. He frequently seems to be meditating and exercisi ng his arms. When he does talk to his son, he speaks of the airplane ride and the probl ems of being so high. He believes that may have caused his current heart problem. Mr. Li also wonders if Western food could be bad for his system. Mr. Li’s condition gradually de teriorates over the next few days. Nurses and physicians attempt to tell the family a bout his condition and po ssible death, but the family will not talk with them about it. Mr. Li dies on the 5th day. Study Questions 1.

Marianne, who is American, and Ken Shimizu, who is Japanese, have worked in Tokyo for over 30 years as Methodist missionaries. They have annual furloughs and occasional sabbaticals, during which they visit relatives and sponsoring organizations and engage in continuing education in the United States. They met as college students in the United States, and their three grown children have established their ow n careers in the United States. Ken’s 98-year-old mother resides with Marianne and Ken. She is not Christian but has always been extremely supportive of Ken and Marianne’s work. Ken teaches at a large Christian university, whereas Marian ne has served in various church-related positions over the years. As missionaries, they live in subsidized post–World War II housing near Ken’s university. Marianne has been a frugal housewife, preparing local foods in the Japanese style for her family. Ken, who is nearly 60, recently learned that he has glaucoma. By the time it was discovered, he had lost a signific ant amount of peripheral vision. Although Marianne delivered all three children at a Christian hos pital in Tokyo, she gets her annual physical examination when visiting rela tives in the United States. She has never believed that the Japanese health system is as proactive as that in the United States. On her most recent visit to the United States, Marianne learned that she has hypertension. Her physician prescribed a medica tion that is readily available in Japan, but the physician was concerned about the leve l of stress in Marianne’s life. Mother Shimizu is quite confused and requires considerable care, but it is unthinkable for Ken, the only child, to put his mother in a long- term-care facility. Even if he would, the quality of facilities in Japan l eaves much to be desired. Most of the responsibility for Mother Shimizu falls on Marianne, in addi tion to her work. Marianne’s relatives are urging her to consider placing Mother Shimiz u in a church-related life-care community near Marianne’s family in the United Stat es, where Marianne and Ken would like to retire. Marianne’s own parents lived in this facility at the end of their lives. She is considering these issues as she returns to Tokyo.
