The doctor said, “We gave him a very small dose of sedative medication and if there is nothing unexpected, he should only wake up in another hour, so you can go in and spend more time with him as a family.”
Smith nodded with red eyes and the doctor patted him on the shoulder and said rea*suringly, “You can go in now and I won’t bother the family here, just ring the call bell if you need anything and I’ll be the first to come.”
With the doctor gone, the ICU, which originally had very high requirements for a sterile environment, was no longer making any restrictions, which meant that the patients in the ward had started to go with the flow.
Smith walked into the ward with his wife and daughter, his son on the bed was still unconscious, but it was obvious that he was now in a very poor state, his whole body was without a trace of blood, pale and thin.
Smith’s wife lost some of her emotions and spread out on the edge of the hospital bed in tears, she held her son’s hand hard and choked out, “Jimmy, promise mommy you’ll get better, mommy can’t live without you ……”
Smith quietly wiped a tear from his eye and choked out, “Jenny, we’re losing Jimmy, you have to accept that ……”
“No ……” Jenny Smith said shaking her head, “I won’t accept it! No one is going to take my son away from me, not even God!”
Smith said helplessly, “Jenny, we have exhausted all the options available to us in this world …… What better solution can you have if you don’t accept?”
Jenny seemed a little crazy and blurted out, “My good friend knows a psychic! That psychic lives in Arizona, and it is said that she is not only psychic, but also well versed in some kind of Mexican deism, I’ll invite her over now!”
With that, Jenny immediately pulled out her mobile phone.
Smith hurriedly stopped her and spoke, “You’re a high school graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, how can you believe in something like psychics that has no semblance of scientific basis?!”
Jenny questioned him, “Then tell me! What do you think I should believe!”
Without thinking, Smith blurted out, “In modern medicine, of course!”
Jenny pointed to her son in the hospital bed and cried, “Jimmy, he’s dying! Tell me, how can modern medicine save him? How can you save him!”
Smith covered his face, took a deep breath and spoke, “If it wasn’t for modern medicine, Jimmy would have been gone three years ago, the cancer cells in his body are now all over his body, no amount of good medical technology could have saved him, he’s my son too, I want a miracle to happen, but let’s be realistic, otherwise you may never walk out of this life ……”
Jenny shouted like a madman, “I don’t care!!! I don’t care about anything right now! All I want is for my son to live! So I can’t stay here and watch him die! We have to do something! If you won’t do it, then don’t stop me!”
With that, Jenny remembered something and added, “I heard someone say that there is a Chinese doctor in Chinatown who is very good, I’ll ask my friend for his contact information now!”
Smith also suddenly remembered the box of medicine Liam gave himself and subconsciously said, “Someone just gave me a box of Chinese medicine, just try it if it doesn’t work, if this Chinese medicine doesn’t work, there’s no need for you to hire any Chinese doctor.”
Jenny asked, “Where’s the medicine? Bring it to Jimmy and try it!”
Smith said, “It’s in the car, I’m going to get it.”
