    Sometime 3 three weeks back my dad had an attack, his blood pressure was high, his sugar level was high as well cause his diabetic so this attack came up all of a sudden that I started freaking out cause my dad is 67yrs and I’m not about to lose him yet, we took him to this hospital in Nigeria, took him to the ER and they asking lots of questions and I freaked out “dude I really change am for this guy” this doctor we met at first started asking questions like have you registered? Do you have your registration card with you? And I’m like can’t you see this man is dying? I started screaming until a doctor came and attented to us so when you mentioned when they tryna interrupt you from taking your brother to the ER I know how that feels. Thank God for your brother’s life
