So here we go;
The Short STORY:
The doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery; He rushed in, changed his clothes & went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor. On seeing him, the dad yelled: “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have any sense of responsibility?”
The doctor smiled & said: “I am sorry, I was not in the hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call, and now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”
“Calm down?” screamed the father, what if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??”
The doctor smiled again & replied: “I have learned to bless the name of God in every situation I find myself.” Go & intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”
“Giving advises when we’re not concerned is so easy” murmured the father.
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, “thank goodness!, your son is saved!” and without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any questions, ask the nurse!” he yelled while leaving.
The father then turned to a nurse to continue nagging: “Why is he so arrogant?
He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state, how can a doctor be this careless and rude?
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was at the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery.
And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.
Never judge anyone prematurely, every one is fighting his or her own battle totally unknown to you; and unless you have been in an exact situation yourself, you can never know whether you would react differently. Don’t judge people’s choices without knowing the options they had to choose from.
