Cooperation is strength, after cooperation, it is easy to accomplish things that one can hardly do.
I went to check the room this morning. There was an old man in the rehabilitation facility. His leg on which the prosthesis was installed swelled up. He couldn't wear the prosthesis, we helped him with the medicine, and let him rest and asked him not to cut the woods that he used to do, but he insisted to make it by lying on the floor. He didn't want to use a walking stick or a wheelchair, he crumpled his knees as he crawled, he is a man who does not care of his personal hygiene, room hygiene, and cleansing his ulcers is his most unpleasant thing, and this is where we can hardly handle. Due to difficulties in communicating with our language barriers, he lived with seven dogs and a dozen cats and ate together. We could not do his work.
In this case, we asked two ex-mentors and a member of the community to work with us to help the old man. After a day of cleaning, washing, changing, and tidying the room, I told the hospital that the old man needed special care, he needed some assistance. We would take care of his ulcers and hoped that the hospital would give us support. The dean was very supportive and sent an ex-mentor to cook for him and a lady to help him in managing his wheelchair every day to push into the treatment room and cleaned his ulcer, and there was another lady who cleaned the room. When we cleaned his ulcer, the first thing we had to do was to give him food to make him happy or he wouldn't let us touch him. After the hard work of half yea, his ulcer begun to heal day by day, and he also smiled day by day. There are only two parts of the leg that have not been cured yet, but they are very small parts, the other leg was healed completely.
The family needs to be built up by us together, everyone needs to be loved. Let us continue to work together to improve the affection and caring of our grand family, let everyone knows that while the ulcers of the body have been heal, psychological trauma is also cured.
Thanks Aunt Betty for sharing our moving story.
