Thando’s heart stopped when he stared at the passed out wife his head became dizzy as the doctors ran around operating her and he found himself being dragged outside. He couldn’t believe what was happening what was in his mind was that he can’t lose her. He sat outside really shocked as the family approached him with worried faces as they saw how his face has changed. Their hearts skipped a bit as each asked him if he was okay and that the babies were okay. They brought him a bottle of water and gave him space to breath. After a while of gathering his thoughts he lifted his face and looked at the worried faces that were staring at him.
He swallowed hard as his heart skipped at bit thinking about her
Thando: The kids are fine but the 5th one didn’t have a heartbeat
Him: When they chased me out they were trying to get him to breath he’s the only one we didn’t hear his cry.
Cassies Dad: How’s Natalie?
Thando: She uhhm she …
Tears immediately made their way out
Thando: She’s uhhm I don’t know how she is she lost a lot of blood and she uhhm
He swallowed tearfully as all of them stared at him with teary eyes some already crying
Him: She passed out after seeing the 6th child and the machines started making noise
He looked down after talking
MrZ: Let’s not think of the worst and wait for the doctor
MrsZ: Let’s pray for all 7 of them
They all not and held hands in a circle
MrsZ said a long prayer after the prayer they all sat down
An hour passed while waiting to hear about the kids and Cassie the doctors were silent. 30 minutes later 2 doctors made their way to them
They all stood up
They shared greetings
Doc1: All the kids arrived safe
They all took a sigh of relief
Doc1: Problem is 5th and the 6th child are a little bit more smaller than the other 4 their lungs are poorly developed they are unable to breath properly especially the 5th one. He is also reacting to the medication we are treating him with. We are running tests as to really find out what is there problem because there is more than just lungs. The other 4 are doing fine and we believe that they will grow and develop well without complications. The father can come with me after this so he can see them.
Doc2: We are still busy with the mother she lost a lot of blood and all the babies took a lot of strain in her body. We managed to control her blood flaw however her womb suffered a great deal. She is to go a minor surgery and will be in a coma for at least 5 days.
Thando: The surgery will help her?
Doc2: Yes and it is not a dangerous surgery she will wake up
They all nod and sighed in relief
MrZ: We are paying a lot of money they all should be fine all of them
They both nod and promised they will do their best. Luthando ordered that the kids receive extra care and should be in their own room
Luthando followed the doctor to incuber he changed his attire and washed his hands then walked in he went to the last raw of the different kids in the room
Their beds were written in big number letters
He looked at each one of them and they looked so small they could fit his hand that really freaked him out he was even afraid to insert his hand and touch their blue pale skins. He has never seen such small kids his entire life. He couldn’t even wrap up his hand as to who they looked like right then he decided that he will name all of the until they are a little developed. He stayed with them for at least 15 minutes.
Later that night a nurse wheeled him to Cassie’s ward he looked at her connected to those machines he took a painful breath just few days ago he slipped out of coma now his wife will soon follow him he looked at her as she slept peacefully like she was an angel like there are no worries. He held her hand and closed her hand and prayed and asked God to protect her
