Longwan Caring Home is located in Dahua County, which was listed as one of the poorest counties in Guangxi Province. Longwan Caring Home is a big family consisting of orphans, single parents, and abandoned children. The normal expense of the Home is sustained by plantation, breeding, and small business.
October 7th, on the last day of the national holiday, sixth grade Mengzhi Yuan collapsed on the playground, and after, woke up with a bump on the head. We let him go home for a few days with medicine. On October 14, Mengzhi Yuan’s cousin, when he was playing with students, hit his head and when he later regained consciousness, there was cut on the forehead. The next day, with the two brothers, we went with them to seek medical treatment in hospital.
Funding is very important for our hospital, the director Wei, decided that MengZhi and his cousin had to be hospitalized. During the hospital, they had to do appropriate tests, such as the electrocardiogram, B-ultrasound, color Doppler ultrasound, and blood tests, including CT. Test results showed irregular heartbeat and bradycardia, as well as low thyroid. In order to further diagnose, the hospital suggested that we go to a bigger hospital for further examination, mainly for the thyroid test and dynamic electrocardiogram. Doctors first confirmed that their two thyroid indicators, although low, was not enough to diagnose the sickness. Then the two of them took a 24-hour dynamic electrocardiograph with a radio. The results came out, the data show that the heart rate is not Qi and bradycardia, but other tests, including color Doppler ultrasound, CT and other data show that there was no further problems; the doctor said that with their growth and development to 18 years old, it should get better. This makes us all feel at ease. Of course, we still have to always pay attention to the problem and makes sure that they gets proper rest and nutrition; he cannot undergo strenuous exercise and play.
Things at home has always been difficult, but thanks to everyone's support and help, we have managed. We first have to thank the livelihood of the hospital for their funding. Home conditions and capacity are limited, but we always put safety and health in the first place. When we see the children laughing and playing in their homes, we are concerned. Of course, each child's family and their own is not the same. It is a coincidence that both Mengzhi and his cousin both got the disease. They both also have an introverted personality and obedient. They are both also orphans.
Our home consists of 158 children, from 3-year-old kindergarten babbling children to high school adolescent children, from crying to rebellious, and of course, they are all smart and lovely. We are a really big family. We need everyone's support and help, so that the children of Dayaoshan healthy growth.
They are like a radio dynamic electrocardiogram instrument, they need to be looked after 24 hours.
