"Nurse....nurse" the voice echoed from the postnatal ward to the reception.
Sister Khoza clicks her tongue in annoyance. Some patients really annoyed her; they will be blocking your ears screaming "nurse" instead of changing the baby diaper. She always tells them to check the diaper first if the baby is crying. But no the baby let out a wail they force milk down their throats. Then they call the nurses if the baby continues crying. Imagine sexually experienced woman calling you for her soaked-in-diaper crying baby!
As she made her way inside the ward as much as she had thought indeed there was a hysterical crying baby.
"Where is the mother of this baby?" She ask the patients in the room
The tired looking woman breastfeeding her baby replied" She haven't been here since morning"
Where would a woman who just gave birth a few hours ago go in this cold morning?
With a confused look she asks "Where did she say she was going?"
They all shrugged and say they woke up in the morning with the baby sleeping alone on the bed. They thought she was still in the showers or went to the shops but as time went by the baby started crying.
She made her way to the bed with a crying baby
She made her way to the bed with a crying baby he suddenly stop crying when she lift him up.
"Oh baby" she exclaim when the baby start sucking his thumb hungrily.
She takes the blanket so that she can cover him under the blanket there is a note.
She presses the baby against her chest and takes the note with one hand.
WHOEVER GET HIM PLEASE TAKE CARE OF HIM
I HOPE HE WILL BE A BLESSING IN YOUR LIFE
I HOPE HE GBS: GROW UP BLESS YOU &SUCCEED
She push the note in her jersey pocket and look at the chubby baby boy on her chest.
"Well now let feed you Sbusiso" she smile and sigh as she make her way out ignoring the curious eyes of the patients.
