    CHAPTER 1
    Chapter Title: EMERGENCY
    °°
    °°
    Despite the fact that I was on morning shift, I slept off and woke up so late on a beautiful Friday morning…. Don’t blame me, abeg body no be firewood. It must have been caused by a particular
    #sleep_pill I took the previous night ….
    °°
    It was the phone call of
    #Nurse_Gbemisola that brought me back to life at exactly 7:45am, meaning that I was 45minutes behind official resumption time. She called to tell me that there was an emergency incident brought in to my hospital ( #Moyinoluwa_Glorious_Hospital) early that morning. Do I still need to tell u the nature of my job? Okay, I am a medical doctor…
    °
    [ PHONE CONVERSATION WITH NURSE GBEMISOLA]
    .
    NURSE GBEMI: Good morning, doctor
    .
    DR SANYA: Good morning, nurse Gbemi….
    .
    (She was sounding anxious and frightened on the phone…. I noticed this)
    .
    DR SANYA: Nurse, is everything all right?.
    .
    NURSE GBEMI: (Stuttering) Yes,sir….no, sir…. we have emergency, sir.
    .
    DR SANYA: Emergency? Is Dr Korede not around?
    .
    (Yes, Dr Korede was my assistant doctor)
    .
    NURSE GBEMI: Sir, it’s almost 8am and he has gone home….According to him, he had an urgent domestic matter calling for his attention at home….. No sir, he had gone before d emergency was brought in ….In fairness to him, sir he called your number severally but you didn’t pick up…..
    .
    DR SANYA: What’s the nature of the emergency?
    .
    NURSE GBEMI: The patient was rushed in few minutes ago, complaining of chronic stomach ache…… Preliminary tests conducted on him through the collection of his blood and urine samples indicated that there is likely of food poisoning….. We have done all that sir, still no improvement…… Presently, his condition is fast becoming a matter of life and death and I’m afraid that if urgent attention is not giving to him on time, we might lose him.
    .
    [ Yes, I got the message…..Nurse Gbemisola was stylishly telling me to ensure I report in the hospital as quick as possible….. In my hospital, we attend to every patient just like our relative….That is why you see the passion in Nurse Gbemisola’s voice throughout our conversation…
    .
    DR SANYA: No problem….. I will be on my way right away!
    .
    [ END OF CONVERSATION….. I dropped the phone at once…. Due to the urgency attached to the condition, I couldn’t take my bath…., even the cup of coffee I had on the table couldn’t be attended to….. I had to dressed up quickly unbathed, picked my 2015 Range Rover model Jeep key….(Do I also need to tell u that I am a prosperous medical doctor?)…… #Laffs
    ….. I zoomed off straight to the hospital. I chose to go with d Range because I liked speeding with it, it makes speeding more comfortable for me. In my hospital, I don’t joke with #life_and_death issues and my nurses knew that.]
    °°
    >>>On my way, I was on high speed, very high speed, almost 125km/hr….. Then, time was exactly 8:07am…..Few minutes remainning to get to my hospital, my dad’s call came in on my phone: I put on my phone earpiece to receive d call while I reduced d car speed, even though I knew that I should have parked aside…life no get duplicate:
    .
    [PHONE CONVERSATION with my dad…..]
    .
    DR SANYA: Hello Dad
    .
    DAD: How are you, my boy?
    .
    ( Yes! That was how my dad used to address me….., at age 36, I was still his boy. Our parents sha, we no dey old for their hand…)
    .
    DAD: I sent several calls to your phone last night but u never picked up
    .
    DR SANYA: I’m sorry, dad. I slept off.
    .
    DAD: Didn’t u see d missed calls when u woke up this morning?
    .
    DR SANYA: I couldn’t see them, dad….. Last night, I took some pills which I believe were responsible for my deep sleep…..,in fact it was a distress call from one of my nurses that woke me up this morning…
    .
    DAD: (Jovially) So, you doctors do take drugs ….
    .
    (We both laughed out loud)
    .
    DR DANYA: Doctors too are human!
    .
    DAD: I can hear d sound of passing vehicles…. Are u not at home?
    .
    DR SANYA: As I am receiving this your call, I am on my way to the hospital to attend to a patient in emergency…. Yes, d nurse who called said it was urgent.
    .
    DAD: In that case, let me release u to concentrate on driving….., u need to get to the patient on time….
    .
    DR SANYA: Thanks for the understanding, dad.
    .
    DAD: Call me whenever u are free, I have a very urgent matter to discuss with u.
    .
    DR SANYA: It’s all right, I will.
    °°
    [ Dad hung up before I could say d next word…. That’s my father for u, very understanding …… But wait a minute, he said he had a very urgent matter to discuss with me, what could it be? Well, whatever it is, it can wait….. I must get to the hospital as fast as I could since nurse Gbemisola won’t stop calling in… So, I increased my car speed, no time to waste time….., a matter of life and death is waiting for me……]
    .
    [ 3minutes later, I was driving into d hospital compound….. Now that I was in d hospital, what happened next?]
    .
    THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING!!!

    LIFE & DEATH
    CHAPTER 2
    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……..
