I never thought I would be sick!
Since I became a doctor at the age of 25, my life has been busy and my sleep time has been reduced. Except for some minor illnesses or sports injuries, I have always been the only one who is treating patients, while I am standing still.
After the epidemic, a large number of patients emerged, and the hospital was replaced with a new computer system, so the working hours doubled. I often worked until late at night before taking a rest. Because I am no longer young, living in such a gloomy day, it is only a matter of time before I fall ill.
Declining visitors still won’t stop the dean
This day finally came. I lacked sleep and drank less water for several weeks. On the day before the hospitalization, I started to have a fever. However, due to the serious condition of two patients from other places, I had to forcefully perform aortic catheterization for them. Heart valve replacement.
The next day, he couldn’t urinate, his whole body collapsed, his mind was in a trance, and his blood pressure plummeted. Knowing something was wrong, I dragged my feet and walked to my colleague, a nephrologist, for consultation. As a result, he was found to have severe bleeding and kidney failure, and he was immediately admitted to the hospital for medical treatment.
The treatment method is to inject heavyweight antibiotics and hang drips, and to find out the cause of blood collapse as soon as possible. I was a little confused at the time, and my wife was very worried. She informed my two daughters who were abroad, Venerable Jicheng, who teaches Zen in Taiwan, and Venerable Tongming, from the Guanyin Temple in Ipoh. When she learned that the two masters dedicated to me that day, she felt a little more at ease.
In the middle of the night, the fatigue started to improve, the frequency of urination gradually became more frequent, the blood pressure rose to 105, and suddenly I felt a breath rising from the feet. At that time, I knew very clearly that the damaged Qi channel had been dredged and my life was saved.
On the second day of hospitalization, the renal index and creatinine dropped significantly. The doctor in charge was very happy and said with a smile: “It seems that I have a chance to recover and be discharged from the hospital!” I smiled and replied: “Is it going to be discharged tomorrow?” He gave me a white look: “Dream!”
There were four big words “no visitors” posted outside the ward, but it couldn’t stop the dean from rushing in. He said to me: “Our hospital just held a prayer meeting this week, and all the church staff have already prayed for you. However, no matter you Do you agree or not, I will pray for you in front of you in person!” I agreed with a smile. Afterwards he added: “You have to listen to the doctor in charge, don’t leave the hospital privately, this is my order!”
“Rejecting visitors” is like a fake, and many doctors who are close to me have visited one after another. A Hindu doctor suggested to me that his mufti wanted to convey the power of the gods to me, and I readily accepted. Nurses from various religions also sent me text messages: “I have prayed for you and wish you a speedy recovery.” I thanked them.
As the nurse was taking me to the scan room, I happened to meet the daughter of one of the patients. She held my hand excitedly and said: “Doctor! You must take care of your body, just like we will take good care of our father.” I was moved.
Even Superman can get sick
Two days later, the kidneys recovered completely, but the doctor still refused to leave the hospital: “Because you are a great doctor, you have to stay in the hospital for a few more days!” Just a few head nurses came to visit the doctor, and one of them asked: “Why didn’t you ask for help sooner?” medical?”
I replied: “If I delayed replacing the mind discrimination of the two patients, I could only save one of my own lives, but now I have saved three lives. Anyway, I expected that everyone would pray for me, and I would definitely be saved. “
The head nurse asked curiously, “Are you a god who never refuses anyone?” I smiled and replied, “Everyone is praying out of kindness. How can I stop everyone from doing kindness?”
After being discharged from the hospital, I had to come back every day to inject antibiotics for 5 days. When I finally recovered, I told myself that I had to reduce my workload, even a superman would fall ill.
