 53.  Mother died two weeks later.
妈妈于两周后去世。
I had not been into hospital to see her but Father had taken in lots of food from Marks and Spencer’s. He said that she had been looking OK and seemed to be getting better. She had sent me lots of love and had my Get Well card on the table beside her bed. Father said that she liked it very much.

我没有去医院看过她,老爸倒是带过很多玛莎百货的吃的去。他说过她看起来还不错病情在转好。她让老爸告诉我她爱我,还把我的康复卡片放在床边的桌子上。老爸说她非常喜欢康复卡片。


The card had pictures of cars on the front.

卡片的正面有一些画。


I did it with Mrs. Peters at school, who does art, and it was a lino cut, which is when you draw a picture on a piece of lino and Mrs. Peters cuts round the picture with a Stanley knife and then you put ink on the lino and press it onto the paper, which is why all the cars looked the same, because I did one car and pressed it onto the paper 9 times. And it was Mrs. Peters’s idea to do lots of cars, which I liked. And I colored all the cars in with red paint to make it a Super Super Good Day for Mother.
Father said that she died of a heart attack and it wasn’t expected.

我和彼得斯女士在学校制作的,她是搞艺术的,那是一幅版画,先在漆补上画一幅画,彼得斯女士再用斯坦利刀把它裁下来,接着在这块布上涂上墨水印在纸上就成了。这就是为什么所有的车看起来都一个样,因为我制作了一张车画布,却用它在纸上印了九次。做这么多车彼得斯女士的主意,但我还挺喜欢的。我还把所有的车都涂成了红色,给妈妈超级超级棒的一天。老爸说她死于心脏病突发,大家都没意料到。


I said, “What kind of heart attack?” because I was surprised.
我很吃惊,问道:“是什么样的心脏病?”
Mother was only 38 years old and heart attacks usually happen to older people, and Mother was very active and rode a bicycle and ate food which was healthy and high in fiber and low in saturated fat like chicken and vegetables and muesli.
妈妈才38岁,而心脏病突发的多是老人,她爱运动喜欢骑自行车,吃的也都是很健康的高纤维低饱和脂肪的食物,像鸡肉,蔬菜和木斯里。


Father said that he didn’t know what kind of heart attack she had and now wasn’t the moment to be asking questions like that.

老爸说他不知道她患了什么心脏病,而且现在也不适合问这种问题。


I said that it was probably an aneurysm .
A heart attack is when some of the muscles in the heart stop getting blood and die. There are two main types of heart attack. The first is an embolism. That is when a blood clot blocks one of the blood vessels taking blood to the muscles in the heart. And you can stop this from happening by taking aspirin and eating fish. Which is why Eskimos don’t get this sort of heart attack, because they eat fish and fish stops their blood from clotting, but if they cut themselves badly they can bleed to death.
我说也许是动脉瘤。

心脏病突发通常是心脏的肌肉不输送血液致人死亡。心脏病突发主要有两种。第一种是血栓,血栓会堵塞送血到心肌的血管,通过吃鱼或是阿司匹林可以预防。所以血栓不会导致这种心脏病突发,人们吃鱼,而鱼可以防止血液凝结,但堵塞严重就会溢血致人死亡。


But an aneurysm is when a blood vessel breaks and the blood doesn’t get to the heart muscles because it is leaking. And some people get aneurysms just because there is a weak bit in their blood vessels, like Mrs. Hardisty, who lived at number 72 in our street, who had a weak bit in the blood vessels in her neck and died just because she turned her head round to reverse her car into a parking space.

动脉瘤则会导致血管破裂,血液溢出同样不能输送到心肌。一些人仅仅血管有点脆弱就会得这个病,就像和我住在同一条街72号的哈迪斯蒂女士,她颈部血管就很脆弱,她在停车场倒车时转了一下头就死了。


On the other hand, it could have been an embolism, because your blood clots much more easily when you are lying down for a long time, like when you are in hospital.

但妈妈的死也可能是脑血栓,因为像在医院里躺久了就很容易形成血栓。


Father said, “I’m sorry, Christopher, I’m really sorry.”
老爸说:“对不起,克里斯托福,真的对不起。”
But it wasn’t his fault.
但这并不是他的错。
Then Mrs. Shears came over and cooked supper for us. And she was wearing sandals and jeans and a T-shirt which had the words WINDSURF and CORFU and a picture of a windsurfer on it.

后来希尔斯女士过来给我们做了晚饭。她穿着凉鞋和牛仔裤,身上的T恤印有WINDSURF和CORFU,背景是一幅冲浪的画。


And Father was sitting down and she stood next to him and held his head against her bosoms and said, “Come on, Ed. We’re going to get you through this.”

她坐在老爸旁边,并把老爸的头揽在胸口,说到:“没事的,我们会和你一起挺过去的。”


And then she made us spaghetti and tomato sauce.

然后给我们做了意大利面和番茄酱。

And after dinner she played Scrabble with me and I beat her 247 points to 134.

晚饭后她还和我玩了拼字游戏,我以247比137胜了她。
