“Are you leaving?” , says a patient attendant. “Yes, she is discharged” , comes a reply from a smile-lit face of the other attendant.
Next comes a heart-wrenching, heavy and hefty request for the one leaving, “Please pray for the swift recovery of my patient."
These are the talks that one could hear along the corridors of JDWNRH. As I reflect on that simple, short, moving talk, my heart became swollen and heavy. I could feel the pain albeit helpless I walk along the corridors. It’s just a touching flight of sentiments I could hear. It’s deep and wounding. One would better know when you see pain-driven patients in multi-categorized wards of JDWNRH. The new are born and there are equaling numbers succumbing to the ailments. Witnessing those uncertain life realities is just abhorrent. In the drama of life, we are actually witnessing Heal and Heaven LIVE right under our eyes.
People from all walks of life are brought together by the sicknesses in themselves or with relatives at hospital, know each other by chance and cruelty of time parts away at a flight of an eye wink. This is a day in and day out at JDWNRH or any hospitals.
Of all, as I overhear those talks, the heavy, emotion-laden request, “Please pray for swift recovery of my patient” , was heart-piercing. It’s sentimental.
