The Curious Case of Ashutosh Dwivedi

My cell phone rang this afternoon. I looked at the screen and it says Ashu. "There must be something happening..." those were the words in my mind. I picked up the phone and he requested for water at the 3rd floor beside the library. He said it was an emergency. I told Priyanka to take care of my stuff in the syndicate room and I rushed to the 3rd floor with my bottle.

He was there with Darshini and her tupperware.  I passed him my bottle and he explained his situation to me. I called Derek to borrow his car to bring him to the clinic. When I went to his car in the carpark beside APIIT. The serious double parking and sometimes even triple parking condition in the carpark has delayed the trip to the clinic for quite a while. He was in tremendous pain , Priyanka's calls came in asking me to hurry and I couldn't do anything about it. I called the guy and he was walking all the way from enterprise III to the carpark. A solution has to be made about the carpark situation in APIIT. A college with 5000+ students only have enough carpark for 200 cars?At last that guy came. I quickly drove to the APIIT entrance and picked him up alongside Momo. Ashu was in pain, I tried to go really slow whenever we meet a road bump but it still hurts for him. Went to Klinik Sentral in Sri Petaling. It was this lady Punjabi doctor and she is fierce! The face she put up when Ashu requested her to change the referral letter's hospital, phew....boy,it was nasty! 

After that I drove to APIIT. Dropped Momo at Arena Green on the way. Picked up Derek and headed to Subang Jaya Medical Centre with the guidance of Derek's GPS phone. We went to the emergency ward. He was in there waiting for the specialist to admit him. Derek and I waited there for around 2 hours. The specialist came and decides he has to do a CT scan.

Aravin,Derek,Farhud,Kaveh and I were there with him waiting for his bladder to get full before going for the CT scan. Btw, he has a medical history of kidney stones.

After his CT scan, the specialist told him that the kidney stone that is causing him pain is not that severe but he has another 8mm kidney stone before his bladder.

Surgery is required. It will take place tomorrow.

Thanks logic for your complete description of the story . Unfortunately no one told anything to me [no one likes me :( ] . I only saw Sundip last night at 10 PM at Apiit and he said Ashu is in hospital !!! If I did not see him , still I wouldn't know anything !!!

Now what can I do for him ? I will call him today , hope he can talk on the phone .
