Another update on Katsuya Nomura

by on May.17, 2010 @ 1:33 pm, under NPB

Katsuya Nomura sent in a message to TBS sports program S1 on Sunday to inform fans that he was feeling better and that he hoped to drop by the show at some point in the near future.

"I caught a cold that grew into something more and now I'm in the hospital.  I'm feeling much better.  I think I'll be able to drop by the studios soon."

And Sachio finally appears to be coming to terms with letting the media in on the secret of her husband's hospitalization and told reporters that he would be back home within 4-5 days.  Although she did also say she had nothing to add with regards to her husband's hospitalization.

Incidentally, there was a program on TV the other day (Akko-ni omakase!, アッコにおまかせ!) that mentioned Nomura's workload leading up to his hospitalization and it was pretty crazy.  I can't remember the exact numbers, but there were weeks where he was giving speeches 4-5 times a week.  That's a lot of a 74-year-old.

Perhaps this is why Sachio didn't want to admit her husband's hospitalization.  Since she's in charge of his schedule, maybe she felt bad about his hard schedule?
