Last night I went to a hospital to visit my aunt who was confined at Intensive Care Unit (ICU). A lady in front of us was crying, I don’t know the exact situation of their patient but I know it’s critical. I didn’t expect that a few minutes we’ll experience the same heartbreaking emotion.
When I arrived I thought my aunt will be okay. Until we noticed that the doctors and nurses are hurrying and running inside the ICU, I think that’s what they called cold blue. A few minutes the doctor looked for my uncle and told the sad news… My aunt’s heart stops beating… But the doctor gave us a hope that the patient may survive if she’ll respond after 15 to 20 minutes… I think it’s the longest 20 minutes I had experienced…
20 minutes passed. Another doctor approached the whole family and told us the real situation. My aunt was clinically dead. It’s only the machine and medicines that kept her alive… how long? Maybe minutes or hours… it’s only miracle if she’ll survive.
It’s the most heart breaking situation when the whole family broke their emotions…seeing my uncle trying to be strong for his children… seeing my cousins crying... hearing one of them asking who will accompany her on her graduation. It’s hopeless and helpless case. Only God knows the answer….
This morning when mama’s phone rang, we already knew what it means… My aunt didn’t make it…
P.S. Please pray for her soul and her family….
