HELPING THROUGH THE THIRD PARTY
while I was admitted few month ago at the hospital,something happened and it thought me a valuable lesson I was going to hold onto for a long time. A woman who nursed her sick husband whose bed was just opposite mine, walked up to me to ask if I brought cups along with me because she had brought none along with her. That she will needs it to bath her husband when she wakes up from sleep, she asked if I had any cup available to give her .
I told her brought none, the one I brought had been taken home. And that I use my hands to pour water on my body, But she could make use of the cup on my water flasks if she doesn’t mind. Then she asked if I was okay with it, and I told her it was fine.
Make use of it ,the flasks has another cover on it. I smiles so she won’t feel somehow about it.
She thanked me and went back with the cup to husbands bedside. As soon as her husband was awake, she walked him to the bathroom to have his bath , using the flask cup as a father to pour water on his body.
After her husband finished having his bath, he went back to sleep again, so she asked me again if I had hot water in age flask. She said to me that they had no flask and the doctor instructed her husband to take warm water always because he just undergone a surgery.
I responded immediately, there was hot water in there flasks and I stretched my hands and handed it over to her . She made him tea, immediately her husband was awake while I watched her using the hot water from the flask, and also drank the tea from the FLASK CUP. For a long period of time, the flask was always with her and I didn’t never ask for it. Because I knew her sick husband needed the hot water more than I do. Because I was recovering so fast and awaiting to be discharged .
The day I was to be discharged,i had to go the bath room to take my bath. So i thought of using the flask cover of the first to have a proper bath . I returned to the room and I asked the woman if I could use the flask cover to have a proper bath. This time, the husband was now awake and staring at me with his eyes wide open . She told me to pick the cover. while I returned to leave to the bathroom, her husband called me back .
He asked: What do you want to use the cover for? I told him I wanted to use it to have my bath .
Then he said: Drop it please. He pointed angrily to the table . He turned to his wife and started to scolded her angrily too.
Why will you give him our flask cover to go bath with? Why? I don’t like this attitude of yours please. How will you share my cover with someone we don’t know ? Do you know the kind sickness he came to the hospital with ?
At this point I dropped the flask cover on the table without saying any word, and walked into the bathroom. When I was done having my bath,I returned to my beaded the wife came straight to me and brought the flask along to return it . She thank me for borrowing her the flask.
I smiled while I collected the flask from her . Before she left, she apologised again for husbands Ryde attitude towards me . I told her it was okay and I wasn’t feeling bad about it .
Then I asked if she had a flask for husbands tea and hot water , she said no. But she had planned buying when Money comes in. Immediately I handed over the flask back to her and told her to keep it use ,I will buy I a new when I get back home .
