    Taipei Guest House to house memorial for late President Lee Teng-hui (2020/07/31)

    After months struggling with numerous health issues, former President Lee Teng-hui passed away on Thursday evening at the age of 97. Doctors at Taipei Veterans General Hospital confirmed that his wife decided to turn off life support, after Lee's condition took a turn for the worse earlier this week. The Presidential Office has announced that starting Saturday, there will be a public memorial space at the Taipei Guest House. Funeral arrangements for the first democratically elected president of Taiwan are still to be confirmed.

    Early on Friday, the American Institute in Taiwan was the first to lower its flag to half-mast in honor of Lee's passing. At 12 noon, the Presidential Office and other official and educational institutions nationwide followed suit. The flags will stay lowered for three days. The Presidential Office held a meeting to decide on next steps.

    Alex Huang
    Presidential Office spokesman
    To allow the nation, and citizens in every field, to mourn, the president has decided to create a memorial for the late President Lee at the Taipei Guest House. Memorials will also be created at our country's overseas Offices. With regard to the funeral arrangements, such as the farewell ceremony and the funeral ceremony, we will draw up plans in forthcoming working meetings. After discussions with President Lee's family members, we will make a joint public announcement.

    The meeting was chaired by Presidential Office Secretary-General Su Jia-chyuan. The heads of the Interior, Foreign and National Defense ministries were present, as well as the president of Academia Historica, and President Lee's daughters, Annie and Anna. Lee's final resting place has not yet been revealed, but sources indicate Wuzhi Mountain Military Cemetery may be the pick.

    Hua Ching-chun
    Deputy interior minister
    President Lee's relatives have already had a certain amount of discussions with the Interior Ministry, including on topics like whether to choose Wuzhi Mountain Military Cemetery. I believe that in light of President Lee's service to Taiwan, and his former position of commander-in-chief of the armed forces, this would be an excellent choice.

    Dr. Hwang Shinn-jang
    Taipei Veterans General Hospital
    He was in hospital for a total of 174 days. He suffered from numerous infections, and eventually septic shock and multiple organ failure. Despite the best efforts of our medical team, we were unable to save him.

    In recent years, President Lee was suffering from cardio-vascular problems, tuberculosis and diabetes. In February, he was rushed to hospital after choking on some milk. He developed fever and multiple inflammations, but was cared for by his loving family.

    Dr. Lin Yung-yang
    Taipei Veterans General Hospital
    He was extremely frail, but he was still able to look at a photos of his great-granddaughter, and videos. He would watch steadily, very clearly aware, following the footage. It was very moving for the nurses to see.

    But doctors revealed that President Lee was unconscious for the majority of his stay in hospital, and was on mechanical life support. When his condition worsened on Monday, his wife Tseng Wen-hui decided very reluctantly to turn the machine off. She was there holding his hand until the end.

    Dr. Hwang Shinn-jang
    Taipei Veterans General Hospital
    Yes, because his wife was distraught. Of course, it was a natural death, but he was attached to breathing apparatus. We removed it for him.

    Dr. Lin Yung-yang
    Taipei Veterans General Hospital
    On this occasion he gave us a different kind of lesson, aside from medical care. That was how to reflect on the meaning of life together with his family. Life doesn't last forever. When the time comes, we must let go.

    The memorial at Taipei Guest House will open on Saturday Aug. 1 and stay open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Aug. 16.

    李登輝辭世享耆壽98歲 曾文惠決定停藥拔管

    前總統李登輝昨天於台北榮總辭世,享耆壽98歲。其實自2月,李前總統嗆到住院後,多半處於昏迷,靠儀器支撐,最後是由夫人曾文惠做了停藥的決定。總統府今日召開治喪工作會議,蔡英文總統指示從31日午後起,各政府機關及學校下半旗3天,而府方也召開記者會,宣布從周六開始,台北賓館將開放為追思場地。外傳,李前總統將安葬於五指山軍人公墓「特勳區」。

    週五一早,美國在臺協會為了悼念前總統李登輝,率先降半旗。中午12點,總統府,還有全國所有公教單位,也一致降半旗,為期3天。隨後總統府宣布,治喪工作的會議結論。

    [[總統府發言人黃重諺]]
    "為了讓國民、各界朋友,可以追思緬懷,總統也決定,在台北賓館設置,故李前總統緬懷追思會場的追思處所,那麼我國的駐外館處,也將設置追思處所。至於後續這些治喪事宜,包含告別式、追思禮拜等等這些安排,我們會在後續的工作會議統籌,並且在與李前總統的家屬討論之後,統一對外,做完整說明。"

    這場會議,由府秘書長蘇嘉全主持,除了內政外交國防三個部會,還有國史館參與討論之外,李前總統的兩個女兒,李安妮和李安娜,也出席討論。儘管記者會,仍沒公布李前總統的長眠之處,但消息指出,位置就在五指山軍人公墓。

    [[內政部政次花敬群]]
    "李前總統的家屬,也曾經跟政府部門,之前就有一定程度的溝通,是否是在五指山軍人公墓(安葬)等等。我相信以李前總統對台灣的貢獻,以及他曾經擔任三軍統帥,這應該也是很好的選擇。"

    [[北榮副院長黃信彰]]
    "他這一次住院的病程當中,有一百七十四天、又反覆的感染,最後因為敗血性休克,合併多重器官衰竭,雖然經過我們醫療團隊全力救治,仍無法挽回。"

    李前總統不只有年歲長,還有心臟病、肺結核,糖尿病史。今年2月初,喝牛奶嗆到住院,持續發炎、頻繁發燒下,家人成了李前總統最大支柱。

    [[台北榮總重症醫學部主任 林永煬]]
    "(李前總統)身體非常耗弱,他仍然眼睛能夠,以眼神看著曾孫女的照片,或活動錄影帶,非常有神的目不轉睛,跟著活動在轉動,我們醫護同仁看了,都非常感動不已。"

    原來,自2月住院以來,李前總統幾乎都是昏迷狀態,靠儀器支撐,但周一病情惡化,最後,夫人曾文惠忍痛做了停藥決定,緊緊牽著李前總統的手,直至最後一刻。

    [[北榮副院長 黃信彰]]
    "對,因為夫人相當的難過。當然是自然的死去,但是因為身上有呼吸器,我們就會給他拔除。"

    [[台北榮總重症醫學部主任 林永煬]]
    "這一次他給我們的另外一個課題,除了醫療以外,是如何與家屬大家共同來思考生命的意義,不只是一直擁有,必要的時候,必須放手。"

    台北賓館將設置追思會場供民眾悼念,於明天起對外開放至8月16日,每天開放時間為上午10時至下午5時。
