Today I rang up one of my friends to know about his mother, who fell in the bathroom and broke her leg. He hospitalized her. But when the doctor observed her crucial condition, he decided not to operate her at once. So he shifted her to the Critical care unit of the hospital because of a low oxygen level. So when I came to know that he had moved her now to the General Ward, I feel so relieved. Let me explain why.
Case of my son
My elder son, who met a road accident on January 8, 2017, faced a similar problem of very low oxygen enrichment. Then the doctor kept him with an external oxygen support system and finally could operate him on January 25, 2017. You must have read it in my earlier post here. So I could easily understand now what was going on inside the mind of my friend.
My friend requested me to stop our conversation, as the physiotherapist has come to the ward to help his mother. But I did not mind at all. Why so? Because he needs to take care of her mother first, as we did in our case. Even I did not pick up the mobile phone when I saw my brother calling from the other end. At that moment, nothing bothered me other than the recovery of my son.
When I retraced my memories, I could see myself flown to Nagpur in mind and could see what difficulties we faced there clearly. When you meet some challenges, you are sure to learn something. The two accidents that I mentioned above taught me some lessons. So I put them down here for the benefit of my readers.
My learning points from crucial surgery
- When an emergent situation comes to you, it makes you alert and forces you to stay in the present moments. Then if your worries make you think about what will happen in the future, bring your mind to the current so that you can plan better.
- Never lose your temper like what I did in my case. Even I fought with the doctors. Please don’t do it because they can save your patient. They are next to God.
- Firmly believe that your patient is going to recover fast. At that moment, please try to see his smiling faces on social media. Once you do this, you continuously feed your subconscious mind with his smiling faces. So it believes his smiling faces as reality. Finally, your patient recovers and becomes a reality. I followed it too.
- A skilled orthopedic surgeon can join bones successfully. But when it’s over, healing starts then. What factors affect it? Let me be specific. The point is the patient heals fast when he follows the doctor’s advice as well as physiotherapy guidelines strictly. The rate of healing takes a fast pace when he practices physiotherapy twice daily. It gives the best results when a skilled therapist helps him in person. The most crucial point is not to stop physiotherapy; even he stops taking medicines.
