Culture 2023.12.2.



Not long ago, Choe Hyon Chol, a commanding officer of the Pyongyang Municipal Brigade of the Paektusan Hero Youth Shock Brigade, was carried to the Pyongyang University of Medicine Hospital with a sudden illness.

He had worked hard at grand construction sites such as the construction of a new street in the Sopho area true to the intention of the Party. Whenever he felt discomfort, comrades persuaded him to go to the hospital, but he did not leave the construction site saying that he had no right to stop his work before finishing the construction of the new street in the Sopho area.

When he was carried to the hospital, he lost his sense because of acute necrotizing pancreatitis with complications.

The medical workers of the Department of Digestive Internal Medicine greatly worried that they could recover the patient.

At that time Jong Nam Hun, chief of the department, encouraged the medical workers to make utmost efforts to recover the patient saying that what comes from the heart goes to the heart.

After a consultative meeting of doctors, the medical workers buckled down to the treatment.

The situation of the patient began to improve thanks to the intensive treatment for a week.

There took place several consultative meetings with experts of other departments to recover the patient.

The sick ward of the shock brigade commanding officer was well known in the hospital and a lot of medical workers and others paid deep attention to him.

Officials of the Pyongyang Municipal Party Committee and the Pyongyang Municipal Youth League Committee visited the hospital with nutritious foods and tonics everyday.

Meanwhile, commanding officers of the Pyongyang Municipal Brigade of the Paektusan Hero Youth Shock Brigade took necessary measures for the patient and shock brigade members helped him sparing no pains.

Choe Hyon Chol came to his sense in 10 days by the sincerity of medical workers. The medical workers continuously dedicated their all sincerity to the cure of the patient.

At last Choe Hyon Chol left the hospital after making a perfect recovery, thanks to the benefits of the socialist system and warm sincerity of those people who devoted themselves to the treatment of the patient with kindred affection.

Leaving the hospital Choe quietly sang the song "Ode to the Motherland".

Hearing the song the medical workers who saw off Choe and shock brigade members and commanding officers returning to the construction site in the Sopho area together with Choe made up their minds to further glorify the precious socialist homeland.
