Tell us about a journey — whether a physical trip you took or an emotional one.
This trip was physical as well as emotional. It was one of those trips you hope no one will ever have to take. It was necessary for the family to find out whether there was any hope to get their most important family member get well. The first trip was within the country, where the physician without hesitation gave his verdict, it was pointless to have heart surgery because the patient would not be able to survive it.
Next step was to go somewhere else, the said patient was already too weak to undergo any kind of surgical procedure. The physician treating him was the best one, who admitted it won’t be easy, but he’d be able to operate.
The day of surgery was tense for the family members, on the appointed time the guy came to the hospital room to take the patient to the operating room for surgery. As he was leaving he said, “do not wait in the hospital, go to your hotel, it will take hours to operate.”
The family members went back to the hotel but came back a few hours later. This is when the waiting game started. All the family members of the patients were leaving with a smile on their faces.
This family had no idea whether the surgery was completed, how was the patient, there was no one to give an answer. At about 10 pm the family was called, the physician showed up and gave his account of how the surgery went. The surgery was successful but the family needed to wait for seventy-two hours, before the physician would be able to say, if the patient will be okay.
After seventy-two hours the family was told the patient will be okay and he’d have to stay in the hospital for a month to recuperate.
A month later the patient was released and was allowed to take the flight home!
You have been transformed into a mystical being who has the ability to do magic. Share your your new abilities in detail. How will you use your new skills?
I believe if one sincerely believes in God can in most circumstances help someone who needs it. I have tried to help my family by praying.
So far I must say I was successful, one of my family members applied for a scholarship, she wasn’t sure she’d get it. She asked me to pray. It took me ten days to complete the number of times I was supposed to repeat the prayer. She received the scholarship.
Another relative of ours lost his job, my husband and I and a few others joined to say the prayer, we were able to complete the prayer in a short time. The relative got back his job.
I cannot claim I have mystical powers but I’m certain, if anyone has true faith can succeed. It should be done for a good cause.
— for tomorrow we die. The world is ending tomorrow! Tell us about your last dinner–the food, your dining companions,the setting, the conversation.
I have no idea how others will react, if they know the world is ending tomorrow! Who will think about food it’s something I do not think I’ll think about. It’s a scary thought.
This is what I will do, I’ll get all my family members, discuss how we treated each other, talk about things we did wrong, ask forgiveness and for once sit together and talk only about times we enjoyed being with each other.
If we gather together food would be something we’ll eat but it’s not going to be the main attraction, there’ll be no special setting, we’ll eat simple foods and apologize to each other for all the things that went wrong because we were stubborn and did not care.
The most important thing to do would be to pray that we do not suffer,that death comes without pain!
