Chapter 318 Let’s Send Him to Hospital
Fang Qiu received the message as soon as the production team of the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition responded.
Then he logged in Weibo. After reading a few comments, Fang Qiu nodded and grinned.
Now, he had to strive for the competition.
Fang Qiu was really determined and looked forward to competing with all the young talents across the country in the competition.
He thought only by competing with others could he know the differences between other people and him, as well as his own shortcomings, so that he could make rapid improvement and progress.
“Beep beep beep…”
Fang Qiu was lying in bed looking at the phone when suddenly it rang.
It was Xu Miaolin.
“Mr. Xu.” Fang Qiu pick up the phone.
“Fang Qiu,” Xu Miaolin said, “I’ve seen the news about this Young Physician of Huaxia Competition. What you’ve done is exactly what I’m thinking. I’m glad to see that you accepted the invitation to them.”
“Yeah.” Fang Qiu smiled and nodded.
“But…” Xu continued, “I know that the things you said when you accepted the invitation were your true feelings, but I still hope you can guard against arrogance and impetuosity. Although they seemed to admire your response and it felt as if you are above the program group, you need to understand that it was all an illusion. The most real thing in the world is your own mind and strength.”
“I got it.” Fang Qiu nodded at once.
“Good.” Xu Miaolin didn’t say anything else. Then he changed the subject. “Do not forget. You need to become a highly-skilled doctor before the Medicine King’s Day on Dragon Boat Festival. Only by doing this can you save your life.”
“I understand.” Fang Qiu immediately nodded in response.
“But before you achieve your big goal, small goals are also essential.”
Xu Miaolin said with a smile, “Since you’ve decided to participate in the competition, you’d better earn a good place. Well, what about the champion of the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition?”
“Well… I’ll try.” Fang Qiu felt a little stressful.
“I don’t care whether you try your best or not. You have to make it. If you can’t achieve this small goal, then you are not qualified to reach those big goals.”
Xu Miaolin then added, “There’s something else. You’ll study even harder than before in the next semester, so be prepared.”
“Got it.” Fang Qiu nodded with his eyes glistening with determination.
In the following days, he had been practicing, reading books, and training his mental power.
Time passed quickly. It was on February 27th.
Arriving at the railway station with his parents, Fang Qiu talked a lot with his parents, who felt reluctant to part from their son.
Fang Qiu’s parents’ advice was also very simple and straightforward.
“Since the new semester has begun, you need to study hard. Although you have very strong medical skills now, you still need to be more powerful. And take care of yourself. If you’re out of money, just call me and have a chat. Mom doesn’t have any money for you anyway,” Fang Qiu’s mother said.
“Your mother is right. You should learn to stand on your own feet. While you’re focusing on your study, you should learn to feed yourself. Like video games, you have started your own life. It depends on yourself how you want to improve yourself.”
“Remember, if you don’t have money, don’t call me or send a message to me. Try to figure it out on your own.” Fang Qiu’s father patted on Fang Qiu’s shoulder.
Hearing that, Fang Qiu smiled wryly.
Of course, he knew they were always joking, so he didn’t mind it.
Soon, after saying goodbye to his parents, Fang Qiu got on the train.
A few hours later, the train stopped at Jiangjing Railway Station.
Getting out of the station, Fang Qiu took a taxi to school.
In the meantime, a beautiful female reporter from Jiangjing TV station was on her way to the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine with a photographer.
“I heard that the new semester of the UJCM started today. Let’s rush to the school gate right now. We can interview Fang Qiu today.” The pretty reporter was quite excited.
She didn’t really know or meet Fang Qiu before. Fang Qiu was so popular in Jiangjing and in the medical circle that almost all people from all over the country knew his name.
It was rare that such a famous figure showed up in their own city.
It would be a shame if she couldn’t get an interview with Fang Qiu.
The Jiangjing TV station had failed to become one of the first-tier domestic television stations many times. Now, with the popularity of Fang Qiu and the heat of Young Physician of Huaxia Competition, they could improve the influence and popularity of Jiangjing TV station if they seized this opportunity and broadcast the competition with CCTV.
As a result, the reporters of Jiangjing TV station already focused on Fang Qiu.
At 2:30 p.m., Fang Qiu’s taxi stopped at the school gate.
Getting off the car, Fang Qiu was dragging his luggage into the school.
When he just walked through the gate, he suddenly stopped.
A boy was squatting on the ground with a case next to him. Obviously, he was a student who just came back to school like Fang Qiu.
Taking a closer look, Fang Qiu found that the student was covering his stomach with both hands. He seemed extremely painful with his head down.
“Hey.” Fang Qiu immediately stepped forward and asked, “Could you say anything? What’s the matter with you?”
Hearing someone talking, the student looked up in pain at Fang Qi and then lightly nodded.
“What’s wrong? You got a stomachache?” asked Fang Qiu.
“Stomachache.” The student took a deep breath and opened his mouth. “My stomach has never hurt this much before.”
“Do you just arrive at school?” Raising his eyebrows, Fang Qiu asked, “did you eat something on the bus back to school?”
“I don’t think I’ve eaten anything strange.” The student thought for a while and said, “I ate some fried rice with oil I brought with me.”
“Is it cold?” asked Fang Qiu.
“Yeah, maybe.” The student nodded painfully.
“Taking too much cold food in long-distance travel will cause a sharp pain in the stomach because you are not able to digest.”
At this point, Fang Qiu continued to ask him, “Did you vomit before you went back to school?”
“Yeah, I threw up twice,” the student replied.
“Do you feel the stomach pain before you arrive at school?” said Fang Qiu.
“It only hurts when I get here,” the students replied.
“Okay, I’m going to help you examine,” said Fang Qiu.
The student nodded again. His pain didn’t seem to be alleviated a little but kept torturing him, which made him frown or grit his teeth occasionally.
Look, listen, question, and feel.
Fang Qiu quickly carried out the four methods of diagnosis.
He found that his pulse was so tight and his tongue was pale. Although he got normal body temperature and a flat abdomen, he could see that he was suffering from muscle spasm. When he pressed his stomach, the student didn’t feel the pain at all.
After diagnosing, Fang Qiu looked at the student and asked, “I can treat you right here. Do you trust me?”
“I know you,” the student looked up at Fang Qiu and said, “You are Fang Qiu. Of course, I believe you. Help me, please.”
“All Right.” Fang Qiu nodded his head and immediately took out a box of silver needles that he had brought from home from his backpack.
When he was treating the kid suffering from myasthenia gravis in his hometown, he only used single-use acupuncture needles. But as more people came to ask him to treat them, he had to buy a good, reusable set of acupuncture needles. And he also brought it back to school.
This set of silver needles was packed in a heavy yellow wooden box.
He put the needle box on the floor and opened it, getting one of the needles instantly.
At this moment, a man and a woman just walked to the school gate.
They were the pretty reporter and the photographer who had followed her.
Walking through the gate, the reporter immediately saw the two students ahead.
“This is indeed the University of Chinese Medicine. I can just get my material right now. It seems that a student is treating another one.”
Thinking of this, the reporter ran towards them.
As a journalist, she knew that the purpose of her trip was to interview Fang Qiu, but today was only the first day of school, and she was not sure that Fang Qiu would definitely return to school today. Most importantly, she had never met Fang Qiu. She pondered that if she couldn’t interview Fang Qiu today, it was worth the trip as long as they could get a good shot of this.
“Shoot this right now. Make sure you get the whole thing recorded,” the reporter said as she was running.
Without any hesitation, the photographer immediately followed and turned on the camera. He ran up to the students and immediately started filming.
“You know acupuncture?” the student who was so painful asked Fang Qiu worriedly.
“Yes.” Fang Qiu nodded his head with certainty.
“You’re such a role model for our school.”
Although he was really painful, he couldn’t help but put on a wry smile while hearing that Fang Qiu knew how to use acupuncture. “You’re so awesome. You just know everything, including bone-setting, acupuncture, and feeling the pulse.”
“Stop talking for a second.” With a word of warning, Fang Qiu prepared to place the needle.
“What’s wrong?” the reporter who ran up to him asked.
Fang Qiu didn’t raise his head.
Holding a silver needle, Fang Qiu said, “In this case, according to the patient’s history of stomach disease, he had long-distance tiredness, which would exhaust his energy. And he also ate some cold food, which would make him suffer from stomachache. Although he has a strong stomach, he still suffers from muscle spasm.”
As he spoke, Fang Qiu started to place the needles.
He placed the needles into three points of the patient’s body.
However, as these three needles had just been pricked, the extremely painful student suddenly sweated heavily and seemed more painful than before. They could see that his abdominal muscle also moved more fiercely than before.
The student couldn’t help but cry out in pain.
Seeing that, the reporter standing by was immediately frightened, because the student looked really painful and nearly ferocious.
“Is he okay? Why don’t we just send him to the hospital?” the reporter asked worriedly.
“No,” Fang Qiu shook his head and said, “This is a normal reaction.”
While he was speaking, Fang Qiu selected a point of the student’s body and stuck his silver needle into it, twisting the needle fiercely.
This move immediately made the student’s pain stop. The unbearable stomachache also disappeared at this time.
With the pain stopped, the student relaxed and looked much better than before.
Fang Qiu continued the acupuncture and used his internal Qi.
Ten minutes later, he took away the needles.
