Planchette- Part 144
“Is Ava okay? Mum what’s happened, what’s wrong? Hanna? Mrs Bali? Oh God it’s Ava isn’t it?” Oscar swung his legs over the end of the bed.
Mrs Bali inhaled. “Oscar, Ava endured excessive bleeding after birth, before and during the operation, something that we call a Postpartum haemorrhage. There’s no easy way to say this I’m sorry to have to tell you that”….
“Oh Oscar I’m so sorry.” Janet gasped.
Oscar fell forwards off the end of the bed, his fall lessened by Janet who caught him, gently lowering his limp body floor.
“Jesus! He’s fainted!” Hanna swiftly checked Oscar’s pulse
“Shall I inform the Bereavement services?” Mrs Bali inquired, placing a pillow under his head.
Hanna shook her head. “No, I’ll let Oscar make that decision for himself.” They raised Oscar’s legs, placing them on a chair. Janet pulled the blanket off the bed, covering him once more.
“He’s so cold, just like Ava was before. Christ! This will be the end of him, he’s been through enough hell for one year, part of it is my fault. Poor Clara, she wont even remember Ava.”
Hanna shook her head. “Oscar will come to. I’ll do his blood pressure; we’ll need to keep a close eye on that. It’s very low.”
Janet shook him gently. “Oscar.”
Oscar stirred, retching violently. Hanna rapidly placed a cardboard bowl under his mouth as he vomited mostly saliva from his empty stomach. His eye lids fluttered and a tear trickled down his cheek. Janet wiped his mouth, handing the bowl to Hanna and holding a white plastic cup of iced water to his lips.
“Here, try and drink this.”
“Please tell me that there has been some awful mistake. Ava gave in, she said it was her time and that she wanted to die, but it wasn’t. She was so, so young. I should be dead not her, she was healthy and so full of life.” Oscar wept.
“Oscar, no! You’re a wonderful person and mean the world to Clara!”
“Oh yes, I’m so great that I made Ava’s life a misery?”
“No, Ava carved out her own existence She needed more help than she ever let on. I know that some of it was out of her hands, but she didn’t treat you well! ”
“I know.” Oscar sniffed.
“Ava’s Aunt is on her way to the hospital as we speak.”
“What was her reaction?” Janet handed him some tissues.
