Friends... When i learned the news through FB, i immediately felt weak and sad but a part of me was relieved because my best friend has already gone to rest. His diagnosis has been unclear. It only started out as osteomyelitis, then fracture then pneumonia, then coma! Even before this osteomyelitis came about, he has been acting weirdly, he had this blank stare, sometimes cruel glare, speechless and he doesnt seem to know me anymore. I am his best friend and yet when i asked him who i was, he said i am a "standby... primary." He can call me names and i dont really mind, i just wanted him cured! The day before his death, he was supposed to have his CTScan with contrast, and i was told that the family refused it even with the recommendations of the doctor so as to determine the cause of his mental state. Also, he was supposed to be transferred to another hospital so i volunteered to help in the coordination, but his folks said.. no need to transfer. So i shut my mouth and my heart, obviously his family had given up on him. I dont want to give him up!!! I wanted still to do much to assist his family while he was still struggling in the hospital, even to the extent of getting a quack doctor fix him. The quack said that he has been bewitched so i asked for instructions on how to pray and other stuff. i kept holding on to the second alternative of treatment no matter how ridiculous it may seem. I am even compelled to face the barber who has cut his hair before all this happened as i think he was the witch who had put a spell on my best friend. Just imagine... me doing all these crazy things just to take this misery out from my friend. The night before he died, my mind was all reeling.. what else can i do for my best friend??? the following morning, he passed away... I know i did what i can do... but my heart is still restless...
