Hello Mr. Major General Chapter 1338 | han-wuji
"This Is Dr. Chen? " Zhang Baochen had lived in the Huo family for more than ten years, so he knew more people than his two children.
Chen Lie and Huo Shaoheng were good friends, so Zhang Baochen had seen him a few times.
Chen Lie grinned at him and said, "Mr. Zhang, dont worry. Old Mr. Huos illness might not be permanent."
"Huh? Thats Great! " Zhang Baochen breathed a sigh of relief.
When Zhang Wenjie and Zhang Wenna saw that their father trusted the chubby little doctor so much, they looked over with concern.
Huo Shaoheng, on the other hand, kept his hands behind his back as he stood by the window and looked out.
His straight back made him appear especially handsome. With the Major Generals summer uniform on him, he was so handsome and charming that one couldnt take their eyes off him.
After Chen Lie connected the equipment to Huo Xuenong, he ignored the Zhang family.
He skillfully operated the equipment to check Huo Xuenongs physical condition, and from time to time, he recorded the relevant data on his tablet.
This round of comprehensive physical examination took a full hour and forty-five minutes.
Zhang Wenjie and Zhang Wenna were so bored that they were about to fall asleep.
Zhang Baochen, on the other hand, stared at Chen Lie and Huo Xuenong without blinking, afraid that he would miss out any details.
After all the examinations, Chen Lie said regretfully to the Zhang family, "Im sorry, I cant help you. Old Mr. Huo is indeed brain dead."
"Huh? No Way? Didnt you say that he would be brain dead only if he doesnt wake up after a week? There are still a few days left! Who knows, perhaps he might wake up?!" Zhang Baochen was the first to express his disbelief. "Do you really know how to examine him? This is no ordinary headache and fever."
Chen Lie put away his equipment and didnt get angry. He chuckled and said, "Thats right. You can wait. Theres nothing wrong with waiting a few more days. Im just stating the facts. The data on the equipment pointed to the conclusion that he is brain dead. Its not easy for me to fool you. Its definitely not the case. If you guys are so filial, you definitely dont need hypocritical consolation, do you?"
Zhang Baochens face was red.
He was just saying what he thought. How could he be asking for hypocritical consolation?
The doctor had made it clear that he would be declared brain dead only after a week!
Chen Lie had been brought here by Huo Shaoheng. Perhaps he had colluded with Huo Shaoheng to deliberately scare him?
Zhang Wenjie and Zhang Wenna hurried to Zhang Baochens side and whispered, "My dad didnt mean anything by it. What youre saying is different from what the other doctors said. Hes just expressing his doubts."
"Hehe, Im indeed different from the other doctors. Its up to you to decide whether or not to believe me." Chen Lie packed up the equipment and said to Huo Shaoheng, "Major General Huo, if theres nothing else, Ill be leaving first."
Huo Shaoheng looked back and raised his hand. "You can leave first. Wait for me in the car."
Chen Lie nodded and left with the small operating case.
Huo Shaoheng said to the Zhang family, "Since youre all here, youre willing to share half of the nursing responsibility. How about this? Every month, Ill ask for half of the nursing and medical bills from the previous month to be sent to you. The nursing time is also one month. Have you found a professional nurse?"
Zhang Baochen blushed and said, "A week after the diagnosis, well come and take care of him."
Huo Shaoheng nodded and took out a nursing responsibility document. "You can sign it. After you sign It, everyone will fulfill their own duties and stay out of each others way."
His words expressed his desire to distance himself from the Zhang family.
Zhang Baochen took the nursing responsibility document from Huo Shaoheng with a bitter expression and said, "Ill take a look at it first. Can I sign it after Im done?"
Huo Shaoheng smiled. "Whatever. There are surveillance cameras here anyway. It doesnt matter whether you sign it or not."
In reality, he was trying to mislead the Zhang family because the hospital surveillance cameras here couldnt record anything. They could only see videos.
Huo Shaoheng left the ward and returned to his car. He ordered Chen Lie to drive back to the base.
In the car, Chen Lie said in a low voice, "Grandfather Huos illness isnt optimistic. You have to be mentally prepared."
" You mean his life is in danger? " Huo Shaoheng frowned. "The hospitals doctors said its not "
"Its not his life." Chen Lie shook his head. "Hes brain dead. Hes indeed in a brain dead state."
"Oh, its good that his life isnt in danger." Huo Shaoheng nodded without batting an eye. "As for his brain dead state, we are indeed mentally prepared."
" but Grandfather Huos brain dead state is relatively shallow. Ive checked his cerebral cortex reaction, and it still has a certain reaction to external stimuli."
"What do you mean?" Huo Shaoheng looked over and asked nonchalantly, "Hes brain dead but still has a reaction to external stimuli?"
"Of course, there are several types of conditions for a brain dead state. The most serious kind is like suspended animation, and the lower level is only the lowest level of consciousness. The next level is a chronic consciousness disorder like Mr. Huo, but he still has a certain level of perception of the outside world."
Chen Lie explained Huo Xuenongs condition to Huo Shaoheng, "That is to say, sometimes he can hear other people talking, and his brain will also have a short period of consciousness, but he cannot move or speak because his actions and speech require more cooperation from his brain cells. He is temporarily unable to do so."
Huo Shaoheng looked down at the tablet in his hand. "Thats good. Try to treat him as much as possible. There should be a chance for him to recover."
"Its impossible for him to recover. He might wake up in ten or eight years." Chen Lie winked at Huo Shaoheng. "Ask the Zhang family to take good care of him. When grandfather Huo wakes up, well definitely make it up to them."
Huo Shaoheng pursed his lips but didnt reply.
At Huo Xuenongs age?
Would he last another ten or eight years?
It seemed like this would be the end of his life.
Huo Shaoheng was more confident in Chen Lies medical skills. If he said so, then it must be so.
Gu Nianzhi followed Xie Shenxing to the Xie familys villa on the Western Hills.
The Xie familys villa was different from He Zhichus villa.
Gu Nianzhi could tell that He Zhichus villa was newly built. Although it was luxurious, it didnt have enough heritage. If she hadnt seen the Xie familys villa, He Zhichus villa would still be considered high-class in Gu Nianzhis heart.
However, when she saw the Xie family villa, Gu Nianzhi thought to herself, "There will always someone better than you."
The Xie family Villa must have been around for a long time, and it showed the richness and grandeur of its history in every aspect.
It was luxurious and low-key to the core. The exterior couldnt be seen at all. Instead, it looked simple yet sublime.
It had white walls, black tiles, heavy eaves and soaring roofs. After they walked into the courtyard, she saw that there were many arched doors, front porches and back buildings, left and right pavilions. On the east side, there was a viewing platform with pointed pavilions. The Pines and cypress below the platform were lush and green.
Standing on this viewing platform, they could definitely climb up and look into the distance, and express their true emotions directly, right?
Gu Nianzhi thought about the position of the observation deck and took another look. She thought to herself that she could actually make a watchtower as well. From this position, she could see the mountain path they had come up from.
This villa was indeed too big. It would be a shame to call it a villa.
This was clearly a small palace
Gu Nianzhi secretly lamented inside about how she never thought that the Xie family had such a high position in the country today.
She followed Xie Shenxing into the main house and wasnt surprised to see that the furnishings in the house were all vintage.
Of course, perhaps her eyes were playing tricks on her. The rosewood furniture wasnt vintage Perhaps they were antique in the first place.
Xie Shenxing sat down casually and motioned towards Gu Nianzhi with his hands. "You sit too."
Gu Nianzhi smiled and sat down on a high-backed armchair next to Xie Shenxing. She said, "Granduncle, this place is so luxurious. I feel intimidated to even sit down."
"Haha, Do you like it?"
Gu Nianzhi nodded vigorously and said curtly, "Why wouldnt I like it? Im not blind. Its such a beautiful house. How pretentious would it be for me to say that I didnt like it?"
The point was that it was so big! ! ! !
She didnt even dare to think about how much each square meter was worth
This house was no longer something that could be measured by money. Living in it was like living in history.
"If you like it, Ill give it to you as a dowry," Xie Shenxing said with a smile. "In the future, when you quarrel with Shaoheng, you can come here. He wouldnt dare mess around here."
Gu Nianzhi: " "
Her heart felt warm and touched.
But she declined tactfully. "Granduncle, that wouldnt be good. This house is under the Xie familys name, and theres nothing wrong with that. But if it were under my name, Id probably only use it as a museum."
Xie Shenxing furrowed his brows and thought about it for a moment. It was indeed possible.
He quickly relaxed his brows and smiled. "Okay, then Ill find another villa for you. The key to this villa and the deed to the house will be with you. When youre free, you can come and stay for a few days. Just treat it as helping us look after the house."
They had been away from the country for many years and had been away from home for so long. The people looking after the house were a part of the Xie family. They usually cleaned and organized it.
"That wont be a problem," Gu Nianzhi agreed immediately. "Ill come stay here when Im free. Also, you dont have to give me a villa anymore. Uncle Beichen already gave me a gift, and thats enough. You really dont have to be so formal with us."
"Im not being formal." Xie Shenxing saw that Gu Nianzhi didnt care about this at all, so he felt both touched yet also empathetic towards her, "Young lady, youre not sensible at all. You grew up with Shaoheng, right? You could make do in the past, but now that youre getting married, you cant just make do anymore. How will your children be able to raise their heads in front of others in the future?"
Gu Nianzhi hadnt thought that far ahead yet. Her face turned red and she muttered, " I dont understand what youre saying "
"When you marry Shaoheng, not only are you marrying into the Huo family, but also into their social circle. Your child will have to grow up in that circle in the future. You might not care about being different, but you cant let your child be the same. A childs greatest fear is to be different. He will feel isolated and ostracized. Listen to what Im saying. Take whats given to you. Treat it as if its not for you, but for you and Shaohengs child."
Xie Shenxing advised Gu Nianzhi earnestly.
At their age, of course, they had a more comprehensive view of the situation than people of Gu Nianzhis age.
Having heard that, Gu Nianzhi had no choice but to agree. "Thank you, Granduncle."
Xie Shenxing was satisfied. He stood up and said, "Get someone to show you the room youre staying in. If theres anything you need, feel free to ask. Its best to live comfortably. Im going to rest for a while. Make yourself at home. Dont be shy."
Gu Nianzhi quickly stood up. "Granduncle, youre generous. That makes me feel even more embarrassed."
"Hahahaha, okay, lets not be too formal! Nobody be too formal!" Xie Shenxing said this as he led the two staff members to the main courtyard where they were staying.
Gu Nianzhi and the two middle-aged women in their forties arrived at the courtyard where she was staying. She had just put down her luggage when she heard her phone ring. She picked it up and saw that it was a phone call from He Zhichu.
Gu Nianzhi remembered that He Zhichu also lived in West Mountain. She smiled and picked up the phone. "Hello, Professor He."
He Zhichus cold and clear voice came from the phone. "Nianzhi? Youre here in West Mountain?"
Gu Nianzhis heart skipped a beat. How did He Zhichu know that she was here in West Mountain?!
