「舉一反三」包袱

「舉一反三」包袱

孩子上中文學校多年,我也擔任鋼琴老師多年,認識了這麼多的學生及家長,發現有為數不少的父母都有一個「舉一反三」的慣性反應。請注意我說的是:「反應」。 舉個例子來說,如果有某位家長稱讚另一位家長的孩子:「你的兒子好乖喔!〈舉一〉」這位被稱讚的家長也許會有這種反應:

鋼琴「葉克膜」

鋼琴「葉克膜」

幾年前從「向殘酷的仁慈說再見」一書中, 第一次接觸到「葉克膜」這個名詞。根據「維基百科」的解釋:「體外膜氧合 (Extra-Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation,縮寫ECMO,音譯俗稱『葉克膜』) 是一種醫療急救設備,用以暫時協助大部份醫療方法皆無效的重度心肺衰竭患者進行體外的呼吸與循環。它能暫代患者的心肺功能,為醫療人員爭取救治時間。」 書中提到使用「葉克膜」的費用極高,而醫院濫用「葉克膜」的案例也不少。顧名思義,這本書是在提醒大家重視「善終」的意義。病人若該走了就該放手,不擇手段用科技來維持一口氣,讓病人求生不得求死不能,無論對病人或是家屬,都是一種折磨。 但「葉克膜」為什麼會跟鋼琴扯上關係呢?且聽我道來
