The deafening silence had his blood run cold like the winter air creeping in through the window.
Everything was silent.
Waiting for the impending doom.
Not even the rustling of leafs was audible.
No hustle-bustle or whispering.
It was as if the nature was also conspiring against him.
Depriving him of the reassurance that he slept desperately craved.
A belief that he would not lose her.
Not after he just got her.
It has been what?
One and a half week?
Was that all?!!!
“CPR RIGHT NOW !!” Adhiraj whisper-yelled after what felt like hours, successfully breaking everyone out of their trance.
“Hand over the injection John.” He ordered, eyes moving frantically from monitor screen to the unmoving figure laid before him on the hospital bed.
“Hurry up !! We’ve not got much time left!!! ”
“Turn over the knob.”
His instinict as a doctor kicking in full force as he tried his level best to save the patient anyhow.
Nurses running anxiously around the room, rotating through the CPR with baited breaths.
“Take the blood pressure.”
“Continue the CPR Diya.”
The tick-tock of clock causing sweat of anticipation to run down their foreheads, while Adhiraj rake his mind hard, hand working like an automated machine as he try to find the cause of the asystole.
It could be anything.
Pulmonary embolism, tension pneumothorax, acidosis, cardiac tamponade, ANYTHING.
Tension lingering thick in the air and the pressure on their shoulders increasing with each passing second.
If they failed to act wisely in a reasonable amount of time, the patient will likely suffer so much brain damage that it would be impossible to revive her.
And for the next prolonged five minutes, the steps of doctors and nurses, clinking of medical instruments, and heavy breathing is the only thing that was heard cutting through the palpitable anxiety that lingered heavily in the air.
A daunting aniticipation.
Waiting for something. Anything to happen.
And it did.
The flicker of hope shining bright like the morning sun and just like that the heaviness lidded in his chest vanished like it was not there to begin with.
A smile creeping up slowly on Adhiraj’s lips.
A feeling of content.
He did his job.
All their efforts paid off.
People think that doctors are gods.
No, they are not.
They’re also human like everyone else.
The expectations on their shoulder is not a piece of cake.
At times they get successful and at times they don’t.
And the feeling of knowing that someone’s life was in your hands and you failed is something utterly and despairingly painful.
Knowing that so many hopes were crushed with one failed attempt.
But looking up at the rhythmic heartbeats on the monitor screen he felt happy.
Proud that he accomplished the reason of what he is right now.
He saved a life.
And it was all worth it.
SANSKAR’S POV :
326 years of life and you certainly come to see through people.
But not her.
No matter how hard I try.
She has built such a high wall around her that it’s impossible to penetrate inside.
But I’m not the one to accept defeat easily.
Again and again and…….. again.
I always thought love would be painful. But my life never prepared me for her.
The first time I laid my eyes on her and I knew she would be my everything.
My sole purpose to live.
Never have I seen a creature as gorgeous as her and I would make sure that she knows it.
It has been two days since the incident and she is still unconscious.
Staring at her at the moment, I know things will not be same after she would wake up.
But I’ll wait.
Wait for her to be comfortable with me once again.
And this time she will not be alone.
Thank you so much for all the comments. Love you all. So sorry that I couldn’t reply to all of you personally but I did read all the comments and am so so so grateful for all the love.
Hope you will like the chapter.
Also everything that I wrote in the chapter is medically possible. I searched on internet about it before writing the part. It was not a miracle or anything like they show on TV shows sometime.
Don’t know when will I update the next part but I’ll try to update soon.
Till then be happy and take care.
Love you all ??????
