Chapter Title: THE STRUGGLE
°

I drove into d hospital compound recklessly….. before I could park d car and alight, it was my most senior nurse (Nurse Gbemisola) that rushed out to me, looking so worried and downcast as if she had even lost hope on d man’s survival…… I ignored her look. She hardly allowed me to alight from the car before she started conversing with me:
.
NURSE GBEMI: Welcome Doctor….. The patient is in d private ward 7
.
DR SANYA: All right, let’s go!
°°
>>We headed straight inside d hospital….. Getting inside, I saw a face at d reception, it was that of a pretty young lady in her late twenties…., d face looked so familiar….., she was worriedly pacing up and down….. I needed no soothsayer to tell me that she must be related to d patient in question. Sighting each other, the lady and I had this impression on our faces that we had met before, but that moment wasn’t d best for introduction or petty talks….. Nurse Gbemisola quickly introduced d lady to me:
.
NURSE GBEMI: (Pointing to d lady) That’s d man’s wife
.
DR SANYA: Okay…..
.
(She wanted to follow us into d room but I stopped her)
.
DR SANYA: Sorry madam, u won’t be able to follow us inside…..
.
MADAM: (Almost crying) Please doctor, do everything u can to safe my husband’s life
.
DR SANYA: God will help us.
°°°°
[Nurse Gbemisola and I quickly rushed into d room…..d man had almost become totally unconscious….. Sighting him, I was shocked to my bone marrow…… He was a very good friend of mine back then in d university that I lost contact with immediately after our graduation…. let’s even leave all that aside for now. Nurse Gbemisola noticed how troubled I was seeing d patient:


.
NURSE GBEMI: Doctor, is everything all right?
.
DR SANYA: Yes, I’m fine.
.
(I lied ….. I was farrrrr from being fine…. I asked nurse Gbemisola to put a call through to my assistant, Dr Korede , which I saw her doing….
.
DR SANYA: This patient must not die!
.
>>That statement shocked d nurse d more as if she had never heard me say such before, maybe it was because of d passion I put into it this time….
.
>>The battle to rescue d patient’s life began …..I asked more nurses to come into d ward for assistance….. I collected d reports of d various medical tests conducted on him previously before my arrival….., every one of them reported the same thing: our dieing patient had been poisoned…. I asked one of d nurses to bring me d man’s card….. I saw d drugs he has been given so far and I continued from there, calling for different appropriate drugs to be brought in for me from d hospital’s pharmaceutical department…….We began passing different injections into both his body and the drip hung up for him……Lo and behold, my assistant is here, in person of Dr Korede…..
.
>>But the patient’s wife wasn’t even helping us, she kept intruding into our activities occasionally inside d room, demanding to see her husband……… We had to assign a nurse to d entrance of d room to be stopping her intrusion, because even when we closed d door, she won’t stop banging it…..Of course, we quite understood her emotions, we couldn’t just afford to be distracted for a second…..
.
>>The battle for d survival of d man was a serious one and it lasted for almost 3hours……but #unfortunately , at exactly 11:27am, we lost the man, I lost him, I lost a good friend. Did I just call him “a good friend?” Yes, #Yusuf was a good friend!!!……. Who was Yusuf really to me?
.
>> Even as a medical doctor, Yusuf’s death was so painful to me……I instructed nurse Gbemisola to park d man’s body and told her to call his wife into my office….. Dr Korede followed me into my office on my instruction…..I had lost every courage and strength in me, so I needed him to help me break d ugly news to d wife……
.
>>>Beyond our expectation, d wife came into my office boldly…. and before we could start making use of our medical condolatory and consolatory words, she spoke out sharply….., hear what she said:
.
THE WIFE: Doctor, safe me all this….. He is dead, right? My love is gone?
.
[We were taken by surprise to d extent that we remained speechless…..]
.
THE WIFE: (Had a deep breath) I knew it…. Since none of your nurses was ready to talk to me, I knew it that my life partner is gone…… (Started shedding tears uncontrollably)…..Please doctor, can I see his remains?
.
DR KOREDE: We tried our best to safe him….., believe me, we really did.
.
THE WIFE: Of course, I know u did, I saw almost everything….. Like I said earlier, can I see his remains?
.
DR KOREDE: Why not!…..
.
[ Dr Korede ordered Nurse Gbemisola to take her to d ward which she did……Now, it’s remainning Dr Korede and I inside my office:
.
DR KOREDE: But who could have killed d man, such an handsome man?
.
DR SANYA: (Looking so firm) That is one question I must find answer to, even if it will cost me d last drop of my blood…
.
[ Dr Korede turned a sharp look at me…….]
.
DR KOREDE: Really?
.
DR SANYA: Yes, I mean every word in the statement u just heard…..
.
DR KOREDE: I can see he was a good friend indeed, in that case, u can count on my support….
.
[ I was so delighted to hear that from him…..I stood up and embraced him…That’s Dr Korede for u, so supportive…I have never had any regret bringing him in to work with me……]
.
DR KOREDE: As it is now, how do u intend to go about it?
.
DR SANYA: Believe me doctor, for now, I don’t know!
.
DR KOREDE: Maybe we need to first talk to d police about d death…..
.
[ I remained speechless, looking so thoughtful……]
.
DR KOREDE: Don’t u think we may have to go legal about it?
.
DR SANYA: No, I don’t think so! As it is now, we need to start talking with d wife…..
.
DR KOREDE: Hmmmmmm….. I get your point.
.
DR SANYA: On d death, we must know what she knows!!!
.
[My phone suddenly started ringing on d table infront of me, it was a phone call from my dad……That was when I even remembered that dad said he had something urgently important to discuss with me……..
