On the next day of the bombing, she passed by an area of near the hypocenter and then slept at Michino Railway Station. Due to the exposed radiation, she suffered serious damages to her cells and mucosa and had a blood in the stool in spite of having no external wound. With long-term bleeding in her gums and diarrhea, she got exhausted easily..In September, her uncle who lived in Sasebo City brought over her for medial treatment. She could take medicines made in USA and was recovering day by day thanks to such medicines and nutritional food which he provided..Though her house burned down, fortunately she transported her furniture and household goods to Hizen-Nagata because of evacuation a week before the bombing. Additionally, she took out fire insurance three days before the bombing and could receive the insurance.
