The deadly disease -Ciscasquapro

We are putting too much attention to coronavirus patients as if there were no other deadly diseases.

One is rushed to hospital for pneumonia complications and what you hear is, ” You have to wait for 24hours for covid-19 results to come out.” Before the 24hours are over, we loose our loved ones just in the name of waiting for the results.

Cancer is another disease that is taking those we love without mercy. But all the attention has been taken to covid.

Just the other day, a man had an accident and was rushed to a nearby hospital. The doctors said they cannot attend to him before he was tested for covid. Seriously, a man who needed emergency care to wait for 24 hours? This isn’t right at all. After some hours, he was no more.

It is my prayer that the doctors, nurses and those in health care should come up with ways to mitigate death of patients whose lives could have been saved if only they were given the right attention at the right time.

Most people are dying not because of covid 19 but of other deadly diseases that needed more attention.

How can a person who has been stabbed wait to be tested coronavirus when the knife is still in his body. To me this is really inhuman.

I understand strongly that we need to care for our nurses and doctors and I appreciate the effort they are putting in, but let us not forget there other more deadly situations than just having the coronavirus!

What was inside her stomach

Mary(not real name) had been suffering from stomachache for years. The poverty state she was in deprived her from visiting the doctor.

One day a good samaritan happened to hear her story from a neighbour. He decided to take her to the hospital.

After the doctor examined her, he said that she needed stomach surgery immediately. It was done and what was inside her stomach brought the hospital to a standstill! A 5kg mass was enjoying it’s stay in Mary’s Womb!

Mary had been suffering from fibroids and was happy to recover. She thanked the good samaritan for his good deeds.

Let us all be willing to lend a hand where we can!

The Monster!

The world was full of peace and happiness until the monster knocked our doors.

We hesitated opening, but the monster kept knocking.

It knocked so loud that everyone in the house was scared to death.

We tried to lock our doors with everything we could find. But it was all in vain.

Finally the monster was in with a bang. Threatened everybody. Took our living rooms, our kitchens and did not dare to spare our bedrooms.

There was nowhere to hide. And as if that was not enough, it took away our loved ones.

Where did you come from? You make our eyes cry every day. Our hearts are full of sadness and we are mourning.

When will you live us? You don’t spare even the kids. Men and women you slay. The rich and the poor you strike. When will you stop this!

We are tied of your attacks. We cannot take it anymore. We have tried all what we can, but you are too dangerous for us to handle.

Oh God! save us from this monster. We have become helpless. We cannot do it alone. We have tried all what we can, but the monster is too powerful for us to fight.

Oh Monster! Oh Covid 19! Oh Coronavirus! Oh pandemic! Please live us in peace.

How I made it (epi.3)

Did you miss the previous episodes? Don’t worry, get them here.

“Good morning, can you come to Huduma Hospital as soon as possible.” Before I could enquire who was on the call, he hanged up. It was a strange voice and from it I could tell all was not well. I new without doubt that something bad may have happened to Bryan. In a hurry, I took a cab to Huduma Hospital.

When I arrived at the hospital, I was a a bit confused. Should I ask information about patient by the name Bryan? No, I wasn’t sure about Bryan. Just the day before he was well, but not having reported to work left me not knowing whether to ask about him or not. It was a real dilemma!

At the reception, a lady noted my restlessness. “Madam, how can I help you?” I explained my predicaments but to my surprise, there was nobody by the name Bryan in the hospital records. Who could have made the call? What was his intentions? I couldn’t get the answer to any of these.The caller used the landline and so I couldn’t get back to him for more information.

I sat helplessly in a couch that was at the reception not knowing what to do next. As I sank deep into my thoughts, just then, my phone rang. I picked it as first as I could hoping the caller would solve my problem. Anonymous call again! This time, it was a lady. ” Hello, we are sorry to inform you that the patient was in critical condition and so we decided to take him to the National Hospital. Please come as quickly as you can!” My effort to know more didn’t bear any fruits. So, what next? From Huduma Hospital to National Hospital.

Without wasting time, I called another cab and I after thirty minutes I was at the National Hospital. Full of anxiety, I hurried came out of the cab and headed to reception. If it were not for the cab driver who followed me, I couldn’t have remembered to pay him. I approached the receptionist to enquire about the patient. Before he could respond, a lady interrupted, “Hi, are you Tab….” Before she could finish her question, I had already responded, though this was not a common name at the office . “A man had been badly injured by a hit-and-run car. Before he went in a comma, he gave out your number. Right now the doctors are working on him. You will have to wait for some minutes before they are through.” she added.

Waiting there for not less than an hour looked like a whole year to me. So many questions waited for answers. Luckily, after an hour or so of waiting, I was now allowed to see the patient. I was directed to the room and beside him, there was a doctor.

Words alone cannot express what I felt. The body was full of bandages and he lay on the bed unconsciously. Unknowingly, I couldn’t control a scream after seeing him. The accident was terrible! I moved closer to get the intensity of the injuries. His face was halfway covered with bandages. To my surprise, it wasn’t Bryan!… don’t miss the next episode…just follow…. let me know your take on this through the comments. Also read life at the village?…..and…The girl who wished to be a bird.

What will happen to patients of Covid 19 in Kenya – Ciscasquapro

It is sad that the country cannot support the covid 19 patients in public hospitals and therefore advocating for homecare based therapy. This may be a big task as a number of citizens might not be able to handle the patients. It can also lead to more spread of the virus. If the children are not safe from covid 19, how will it be possible for family members to take care of the victims without the required attire? Remember Impact of Covid 19 on traveling has contributed to so many other challenges. This means that family members cannot travel to visit their sick relatives of whom they are supposed to be taking care of. It is like the pandemic is not leaving us soon. According to how things are going, the numbers of affected people is increasing day by day. And if this continues, Should kenyan students seat for their national exams this year? The irony is, school were closed because of one case of Covid 19, now they are expected to be opened when the number is increasing. With this homecare based treatment, will the parents be able to handle cases of the virus in schools? I think this is an issue that need to be revisited.
