Mr. Fuji-san in ICU Part II

I got a call from the Nurse today.

Fuji-san's prognosis is not good.

He is suffering from a very bad spine injury and his nervous system is in a bad shape. Some of the nerves to the spine were unable to connect properly which led to his comatose condition. With no other living relatives, and since I was the closest to him, I consented to his operation which is to be scheduled within the next seven days.

And because it is an urgent case, I can help settle the bill when I see him next week, after the operation. This will give me more time to come up with the money. Sigh
