How did people look when they were about to die of old age?
A considerable number of people had never seen it.
How did prominent people look when they were about to die of old age?
Most people had never seen it and could not even imagine. They only saw it on the news, on television.
In fact, they were about the same.
Lying in bed with a tenuous hold on their breath, they were surrounded by their loved ones.
The doctors had also worked hard, but they were not gods after all.
There was an elder in the same situation now.
“Grandpa.” The corner of Guo Sirou’s eyes were filled with tears.
“Sirou, don’t cry.” The old man’s voice was very low, just like his life at that moment, which could be taken away by a gust of wind.
“I’ve called Dr. Wang. He’ll come soon.”
“He’s not a god.” The old man sighed.
He then looked around. The room was filled with people. His children and grandchildren were all there.
In this life, he held enough rights. He had never cared about money. The thing that made him happiest was to have a family of four generations under one roof. However, his children and grandchildren made him worry the most. His presence was like a big tree which could shelter them from the wind and rain. Once he collapsed, they would have to face the wind and rain outside on their own.
Sigh. He was really worried!
He let out a sigh, but what could he do?
His vision had already started to become blurry.
He saw his mother, a battlefield filled with gun smoke, his comrades who had sacrificed, and the crowd who welcomed them…
I’m about to die. Everything else will be up to all of you.
Father! Grandpa! There were still cries from his loved ones in his ear.
Goodbye. The old man shut his eyes. His hand which was holding his granddaughter’s hand also dropped.
Everyone suddenly flocked to the front of the bed. They cried and shouted, hoping to make the old man stay.
The sound of crying?
Wang Yao arrived outside the door and saw everything in front of him.
The old man on the sickbed had already closed his eyes. The flame of life had been extinguished.
It looks like I came a step too late, Wang Yao thought to himself.
“Dr. Wang, you’re here. Come and take a look quickly. Can my grandpa still be saved?” As soon as Wang Yao arrived, Guo Sirou went to him like a drowning person who was trying to grab a life-saving straw.
Everyone in the room had their eyes on Wang Yao. Most of them had never seen the young man, but they had heard of his name and deeds. Therefore, they gave way to the young man, hoping that the young man could create another miracle.
Wang Yao came to the front of the bed and reached out his hand to check the old man’s pulse.
The heart of the old man in front of him had already stopped beating.
After diagnosing, Wang Yao stood up and said, “I’m sorry.”
“Why don’t you take another look?”
“His heart has already stopped beating. I don’t have any power,” Wang Yao replied. “My condolences.”
He had also thought about using the Prolongation pill. Would there be another miraculous effect? What would happen next?
After hearing what Wang Yao said, Guo Sirou plopped down on the ground and cried. The person who loved her the most in the world had passed away.
The entire room was filled with crying.
My condolences. Wang Yao walked out of the room silently.
“Brother Wang.” Just as he walked out of the door, a voice came from behind him. He turned around and saw Guo Zhenghe who also had tears in the corner of his eyes.
“What’s the matter, Mr. Guo?”
“Thank you,” Guo Zhenghe said sincerely.
“I didn’t help with anything,” Wang Yao replied a little apologetically. In fact, he could give it a try.
“No, you helped us by coming,” Guo Zhenghe answered.
After saying a few words, Guo Zhenghe went back in. After all, the passing of his grandfather was a big deal.
Chen Ying was waiting in the car, as Wang Yao left.
Seeing Wang Yao came out that quickly, she asked curiously, “So fast?” At the same time, she also did not have a good feeling.
“The old man has passed away. I couldn’t do anything to help,” Wang Yao replied.
Chen Ying was silent for a while. Then, she started the car and left.
“The old man has passed away?”
“I didn’t expect him to pass away before me. Sigh. We have argued for years. I should go pay my respects.”
It rained that afternoon. It was unknown whether it was a coincidence or because of some other reason. The rain was pretty heavy.
Wang Yao remained in the cottage. Sitting on the wooden bench, he drank some tea and looked at the sky.
“Are you still thinking about the old man?” Chen Ying pulled a seat over and sat beside him.
“Not just him,” Wang Yao replied.
“When is his funeral?”
“I don’t know. This is not just a personal matter for the Guo family. After all, the status of the old man is significant.”
Things like politics were indeed very complicated!
The rain stopped at midnight.
The next morning, Wang Yao went to the Su family’s house again. This time, in addition to using the Muscle Revitalization powder, he also brought another medicine – the Blood Deblocking powder.
A new medicine?
Song Ruiping keenly noticed this as well.
“This is another medicine which I’ve formulated. It’s broken down internally and it can dredge the channels and collaterals.”
He reduced the medicine dosage a lot because Su Xiaoxue and Zhou Wukang’s conditions were different. Despite the fact that Zhou Wukang was a kid and his health was poor, his body recovered very quickly after being nursed. Childhood was the time of physical growth. All aspects of the body function were full of vitality, like the rising sun. However, Su Xiaoxue was different. She was almost worn down by her illness. Although her condition had greatly improved after a short period of recuperation, she still could not fully withstand the Blood Deblocking powder which had a higher potency.
Even with a small dosage, Wang Yao was very careful. Sitting in front of the bed, he checked her pulse from time to time and observed the situation after she consumed the medicine.
Su Xiaoxue hummed.
At that moment, she felt that a high flux of heat which reciprocated and collided non-stop in her body. It made her very uncomfortable.
Is such a small dosage still too much? Wang Yao thought to himself.
It looks like the effect will have to be achieved slowly.
“How is it, Dr. Wang?” Song Ruiping asked after waiting to the side for more than an hour.
“No worries. I’ll bring this medicine again when I come next time,” Wang Yao answered as he kept the Blood Deblocking powder.
Although the medicine had the effect of strengthening the muscles and vessels, and dredging the channels and collaterals, it had a somewhat powerful effect. If it was not well controlled, it might have a negative effect.
After confirming that the condition of Su Xiaoxue’s body was stable, Wang Yao was only then satisfied.
“Okay, today’s treatment will end here.”
“Alright. Why don’t you have lunch here?” Song Ruiping suggested.
“It’s okay. Thank you.”
After returning to the small courtyard, Wang Yao immediately entered the house and recorded Su Xiaoxue’s condition when she consumed the herbal medicine that day.
The Blood Deblocking powder was definitely useful, but the dosage must be well controlled.
The medicine supplied by the system has to be applied according to the indications as well.
Wang Yao recorded while thinking. The sound of cooking came from the kitchen outside, as well as the tantalizing aroma.
After cooking, Chen Ying did not bother Wang Yao and waited outside until the sky had darkened. At that time, summer solstice had already passed. Since then, the days had gradually become shorter and the nights had become longer.
After waiting for a while, the dishes were getting cold. Chen Ying went to Wang Yao’s room and called up to him, “It’s time to eat.”
“Okay, thank you.”
Chen Ying had cooked some Shandong dishes. However, the taste was more bland than not, and it was not that salty anymore.
The next day, Wang Yao went to the Su family’s house. He knew the funeral of the old Mr. Guo would be held while he was treating Su Xiaoxue. With the status of the old Mr. Guo, many people had to pay their last respects. This was already an unwritten rule.
“Are you going too?” Song Ruiping asked.
Not everyone who wanted to go could attend such a farewell.
“Alright, I’ll go.”
“Okay. I’ll arrange it immediately.”
“Does this still need to be arranged?”
That day, Wang Yao did not give Su Xiaoxue any medication. Instead, he mainly observed the changes in her body. He planned to use the medicine the next day.
“Did someone treat her after I left yesterday?” When Wang Yao was checking her pulse, he discovered something a little strange.
“Yes, Chen Lao came and gave Xiaoxue an injection.” Song Ruiping did not hide this matter, out of fear there would be a problem.
“Oh, good,” Wang Yao replied.
It was no wonder that the improvement of her condition overnight was faster than what he expected. It was the combination of the medicine and the acupuncture which gave rise to a larger effect.
“Dr. Wang, is there anything wrong by asking someone to give her an acupuncture?”
“No. On the contrary, the acupuncture and my medicine complement each other, so it is beneficial.”
“Oh, that’s good then.” Song Ruiping heaved a sigh of relief.
