休士顿纪事报(Houston Chronicle)采访报道“三金赠救命人”(3图)

作者:世界名人网记者 遴璘 综合报道          录入于 January 08, 2010 at 12:30:19:
世界名人网讯 休士顿纪事报于2010年1月7日以整版篇幅报道了老年体坛名将高如山三金赠救命恩人的事绩(见附件),标题是:“乒乓球冠军金牌获得者为得救称谢——老年奥林匹克运动员把金牌赠送给救他性命的医生和妻子。Gold medalist thankful for new chance at life”内容如下:

休士顿西南区居民高如山是一位89岁结过两次婚,有三个孩子和一个外孙的长者,他有6个支架在心脏里及80多块奖牌。目前高在他的年龄组是当地、州、国家乃至国际的乒乓球冠军,他有幸还能活着感激两位心脏科医生和他的妻子胡嘉利。

得从2006年说起,他在打乒乓时感觉左肩和后背痛。他去看医生治背痛,但是他妻子告诉他,她认为不是背痛的问题。高说:“我妻子号我脉说我有心脏问题,坚持要我去看心脏科医生。”高去了在中国城的丰建伟医生诊所。经核素扫描仪器发现高心脏的主要血管堵塞了。丰医生说:“他是一个幸运者,因为他有如此严重的心脏病而长时间打球,有立即死去的可能。他有一根心血管己经堵塞了90%,我简直不敢相信他在这样严重情况下还做剧烈运动。”高则稍持不同意见。

高被介绍到德州医科大学国际心血管系主任Richard Smalling博土那里,在6411 Fannin的荷门纪念医院心脏和心血管研究所,Smalling在高的心脏中放了四个支架。13天后,高连续第二次羸得世界冠军。但是2009年,高旧病复发,Smalling在高的心脏中放了另外二个支架,在腿上放了一个。几个月后,即10月,在赫茨曼世界老年运动会上,高蠃得了连续第五次的三金。

从中国来的高,年轻时就喜欢打乒乓球,在上海唸大学时,他是学校代表队。1993年,72岁的高移居休士顿后,他再捡起了乒乓。现在他已有85块以上的奖牌。他家里一垛荣誉墙不仅仅有过去作为中国职业灌溉工程师的表扬和嘉奖,还有乒乓和桥牌的奖牌。

高在Bayland社区中心每周打三次乒乓,晚上在中国人活动中心打,总之,他每周要打五次或六次。高也玩桥牌,作为锻炼他脑子的方式。他不仅自己玩,还在Tracy Gee社区中心和中华文化中心教其他老人打桥牌。高说:“你必须锻炼,我鼓励其他老年人锻炼,任何形式的锻炼。”

丰和Smalling认为高对其他人是一个伟大的榜样,而高则认为他们二人伟大——救了他的命,故最近他把拼得的二块金牌赠送给了他们,Smalling引以为荣。他说:“我从未蠃得过任何形式的奖牌,我计划在荷门纪念医院心脏和心血管研究所找一个永远展览这金牌的地方,它激励我竭尽全力做好工作。”

高把第三块金牌给了妻子,他说她在多方面救了他的心脏。首先,高说,六年前她同意嫁给我。他引以为傲的说:“她比我年轻多了”。

胡65岁。

她挽救了他的心脏是那一天从他的脉博发觉的。胡对高送给她金牌很高兴,但她感到那些日子並没有做份外事。她说:“当他病了,是我的责任去了解。”

高说:“他们都是我的救命恩人,没有他们中的任何一位,我不会在这里了。”

Gold medalist thankful for new chance at life | Alief/Southwest News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
LIFE-SAVING MOMENT
One grateful senior citizen
By KIM MORGAN CHRONICLE CORRESPONDENT
Jan. 5, 2010, 12:34PM


R. Clayton McKee For The Chronicle
A LOOK AROUND: Senior table tennis champion Rushan Gao, left, visits a cardiac cath lab at Memorial Hermann Medical Center hospital with Dr. Richard Smalling, of the Memorial Hermann Cardiovascular Institute. Smalling was one of the two doctors Gao calls his "Lifesavers." Before entering the Huntsman World Senior Games, Gao dedicated any medals he might win to his them. He recently delivered on that promise by giving away three gold medals.

Southwest Houston resident Rushan Gao is an 88-year-old, twice-married father of three and grandfather of one who has six stents in his heart and more than 80 gold medals to his name.

While Gao is the current gold medal senior citizen champion in local, state, national and international table tennis championships for his age group, he's lucky to be alive.

But he is, thanks to the efforts of two cardiovascular physicians and his wife, Jiali Hu.

It all began in 2006, when during a game of table tennis, Gao felt pain in his left shoulder and back. He went to a doctor to treat the back pain, but his wife told him she didn't think his back was the problem.

“My wife checked my pulse and said ‘you have heart problems' and insisted I attend the heart doctor,” Gao said.

Gao visited Dr. Jianwei Feng at JF Southwest Heart Clinic in Chinatown.

A nuclear scan found blockages in four major arteries of Gao's heart.

“He is a lucky man because he was playing ping pong for hours with large, severe heart damage that could have killed him instantly,” Feng said. “One of his arteries was 90 percent blocked. I couldn't believe he was doing strenuous exercise with this heavy blockage.”

Gao puts it a little differently.

“He (Feng) told me ‘oh this is dangerous,' ” Gao said. “He told me my heart vessel is broken.”

Gao was referred to Dr. Richard Smalling, director of Interventional Cardiovascular Medicine at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston.

At the Memorial Hermann Heart and Vascular Institute, 6411 Fannin, Smalling placed four stents in Gao's heart arteries.

Thirteen days later, Gao won his second consecutive international table top championship.

But then Gao's symptoms came back in 2009, so Smalling placed another two stents in Gao's heart, and one in Gao's leg.

A few months later, in October, Gao won his fifth consecutive set of gold medals at the Huntsman World Senior Games.

Originally from China, Gao has played table tennis since he was a youngster.

When he got to the university in Shanghai, he played with his school team.

And when the 72-year-old Gao moved to Houston in 1993, he picked it up again.

Now, Gao has more than 85 medals.

His wall of fame at home not only holds accolades and recognition from his days as a professional irrigation engineer in China, but also medals in table tennis and bridge.

Gao plays table tennis three times a week at the Bayland Community Center, and in the evenings at the Chinese Community Center. All in all, he plays five or six times a week.

Gao plays bridge too, as a way to exercise his mind. Not only does he play, he has taught other seniors how to play at the Tracy Gee Community Center as well as the Chinese Community Center.

“You have to exercise,” Gao said. “I encourage other seniors to exercise. Any kind of exercise.”

Feng and Smalling think Gao is a great example to others, always practicing what he preaches.

And Gao thinks they're great — for saving his life. So he recently presented them with two of his hard-won gold medals.

Smalling said he was honored by the gesture.

“Having never won any type of gold medal, it was hard to believe he would part with any of his,” said Smalling, who plans to find a prominent place to display the medal at the Memorial Hermann Heart and Vascular Institute. “It inspires me to perform to the best of my abilities.”

Gao gave a third gold medal to his wife who he said has saved his heart in more ways than one.

In the first place, Gao said, she agreed to marry him six years ago.

“She's much younger than me,” Gao proudly said.

Hu is 65.

The second way she saved his heart was the day she felt his pulse.

Hu is happy Gao gave her one of his gold medals, but she feels she didn't do anything extraordinary that day.

“It's my duty to know when he is sick,” she said.

“They are all my lifesavers,” Gao said. “Without any of them I wouldn't be here.”
