Hospital Blues: The Economy Effect

By: naijarian (F) |Time : September 17, 2016, 06:14:45 PM
Today, as I walked out of the hospital with my husband and my four day old baby I couldn't help but marvel at my experience at my stay at that hospital.

I began to wonder, has the economy gone so bad? Is this really a redeemable situation or is God just warning us that we are taking things for granted.

My first day there, a 67 year old man was rushed to the hospital. He had slit his own throat. Someone had reached him just in time to call for help. His family were contacted and they told the doctor point blank that they didn't have money for his bill. Tue doctor, who happens to be a family friend, was at a loss. He did all he could and they insisted that they wanted to take him home. As it was, he had tried killing himself once before.

I watched as he groaned in pain and wondered of it was worth it. So he had difficulty surviving the economical changes, how will this help? He is there in pain and hungry. I can't even begin to wonder what must be going through his mind. He would probably be cursing the people that saved him thinking that they had done him no favor.  :w

The other one was a call the doctor received, a woman who had given birth earlier that day and had said she wanted to contact her husband at a call center; absconded. She called the doctor that she wasn't coming back for the baby and if they had not taken her as they did, she would have dumped her in a river. She begged the doctor to help save the girl's future and find a deserving family. I was like...  :o

Talk about the labour, the pain and the journey yo the day of delivery itself. How could someone even contemplate throwing away a child just like that. But, at least she decided to do 'her a favor' and abandon her at a hospital instead. What a llife!!

Another lady has been staying at the clinic for two days now, out there in the corridor. She refused to go home because she had no home to go to. She said she was living on the street before the birth of her boy and now that she has a corridor, she would rather turn herself to a menace than go home.

Haba, I said. But then I started thanking God. Is it that we that are still standing ain't appreciative of our bearable situation? Are we taking our leaky roof for granted? We have a roof  while some live under the sky. Do we remember to thank God for the garri and groundnut we are able to eat?

The economy is bad, but some of us just have God's grace working for us. When my baby decided to come, I was like, "chai buhari period ooooo." But then I was reminded that I have a divine favour always surrounding me. I walked out of the hospital with my bundle of joy knowing that God has only just started with me.

 ;D ;D I'm just special like that!!

Its quite sad that the economic situation has left lots hopeless and short sighted. It was just last month a man hanged himself right in front of his house after dinner with his son. Although, no one knew why he did that but speculations says he did that  because N50,000 loan he could not pay back. Things are really happening.
The other time, news reported  that a man stole a woman's freshly prepared amala and was  caught eating it with palm oil with his family.
Please appreciate God if you can feed and afford the basic things

Such a mind-blowing story!

It's what it is. I believe that anyone who says "life sucks" and believes it is just lacking in understanding.

If the fellow without a vehicle is sad, help me ask him if he's not seen the ones without shoes.
If the ones without shoes start complaining, ask 'em if they can't see the one without a foot out there.
If the one with no foot laments every time, ask him if he's seen a corpse before...

You gotta be grateful for the seemingly little things God does for you because in them are embedded stuffs which others pray and fast for but they ain't privy to get.

Your current position is the prayer request of many out there, be grateful!
