In sickness and in health! #AtoZChallenge

Ananth is recovering well and will be discharged in a day or two. Natasha had not left him alone even for a second in these five days. She had held his hand when he got up on his feet for the first time after surgery.

The days were tiring but Natasha was elated to see Ananth healthy and safe. She was thankful that the morning sickness had subsided by now. Her food intake was being monitored by her mother.

During all the chaos Natasha had missed her doctor’s appointment this month. She was two months pregnant but still cannot believe it.

Its fifth day of their stay in hospital, and Natasha was feeling dizzy since morning. She was thinking of going home tonight as Ananth was also feeling better now.

‘…Natasha! Wake up! Get her some water to drink…’

‘…The nurse is coming…’

Natasha woke up with a jolt and realized that she had fainted. She was surrounded by her parents and hospital staff.

The doctor was called in who examined her and instructed the nurse, ‘Give her Susten 100 via IV. She is bleeding, we need to shift her to a different room now’.

Before Natasha could comprehend she was wheeled out of Ananth’s room and taken to maternity wing of the hospital.

‘Is my child okay? Is there a heart beat?’, enquired Natasha.

‘We are taking you for an ultrasound scan to check for foetal well being.’

Natasha had not realized but all the stress had affected her health. She was keeping her fingers crossed for her child’s well-being.

Irony of her life, they were both in the hospital together undergoing treatment. Even the fate knew they would be always together whether in sickness or in health.

Harsh Reality #AtoZChallenge

‘Hello!’

‘…Yes, I am hospital’

‘Okay, I will ask directions and be there’, and Natasha disconnected the call.

Natasha frantically moved towards the emergency room, with many horrid thoughts racing through her mind. That’s when she heard someone call her name. She turned around and found Nikhil standing with the doctor.

‘Are you his wife? We need to talk and get your signatures on these admission forms here. Without this we cannot go ahead with the surgery’,  spoke the attendant to Natasha.

‘What happened to him? Is he alright?’, Natasha asked while her eyes kept wandering around looking for Ananth.

‘Ananth has had an accident with his motorbike. He was hit by an incoming vehicle. He is conscious.’, doctor replied to Natasha’s query.

‘Okay, what is the need of surgery then? I need to speak to him’, asked Natasha as she was taken to the room where Ananth was put up.

‘He has fractured his femur on the right leg and it needs to be operated soon. We will be performing a procedure called ORIF-Open Reduction Internal Fixation. The procedure involves cutting open the fracture and then use special metal devices to hold your bones in place while they heal.’, explained the doctor.

After completing all formalities Ananth was wheeled into the operation theater.

Same day, post operative Care

Ananth’s surgery was successful and he was moved into post operative care room. He was under anesthesia’s influence and should wake up in few hours. He would be staying in the hospital for about five days.

The surgeon had explained the precautions to be taken in coming weeks. Ananth would need 3 months of physiotherapy to help build strength and flexibility as he recovers.

The next five days were spent in a jiffy as Ananth recovered from his surgery. Both their parents had arrived the next day. Natasha had spent all the nights in hospital staying besides Ananth. Her parents had insisted that she should go home to rest but still she was adamant. Ananth would not have left her side if something happened to her, so she stayed. It was difficult to see him in pain, but this was the harsh reality!
