I was planning a trip to India. I had even began to discuss with a doctor over there. But l developed cold feet after someone told me a story when l travelled home for Xmas. His eleven years old nephew needed surgery.
His father had the means so off they went to India. When they arrived, the boy was sedated for the surgery. A minor surgery.
All went well but there was a problem. The boy slept for several hours. He slept for so long that his father became worried.
He decided to ask questions. “Doctor, l don’t understand what is going on. Why is my son still asleep? Your consultants in Nigeria said it was a minor surgery and would be over before we know it. Why is he taking forever to wake up?”
