Chapter 156 Suite the Medicine to the Sickness
Upon hearing his son had only three days to live, Su Hachuan fell on his knees in front of Qin Haodong and begged, “Doctor Qin, please save my son. I can pay how much you want if you can treat him. I’ll pay you at any cost.”
Li Yue followed him and kneeled down aside. She begged, “Yes, Doctor Qin. My husband will sculpt the yellow jade for you, or even spend the rest of his life working for you, as long as you can save our son.”
Qin Haodong lifted up the two in haste and said, “Don’t mix things up. I’ll treat the patient first and we’ll talk about other things later.”
“Doctor Qin, my son’s life will be all yours.”
Said Su Haichuan and his wife standing off the ground, they still looked pitiful in their eyes, though.
Qin Haodong said, “Do not worry. I got him. Your son shall be fine.”
Gao Fengwen said, “Medical Sage. We didn’t find the exact way to treat him in with Chinese Medicine. Where are you going to start?”
He looked respectful, like a humble and curious pupil.
Qin Haodong said, “The key point of Chinese medicine is to suit the medicine to the sickness, and that still works when it comes to treating the parasites.”
Gao Fengwen asked again, “Medical Sage, how do you suit the medicine to those parasites?”
“The parasites in his body were hermaphrodites, and they prefer higher when spawning. Human beings are warm-blooded animals, but the temperature of different parts vary from each other. The parasites are sensitive to temperature, so they wormed their way into the internal organs to spawn at a higher temperature.
“The fever the patient is having now is also caused by the parasite. It brought up the temperature and boost the spawning of the parasites, thus forming a vicious circle.
“Since the parasites like high temperatures, we need to cool down the patients and control the spawning of the parasites, then expel it out of the patients.”
He took out his phone and called Lin Momo after he explained that, asking her to send all the ice cubes in the canteen of Lin’s Group to Su Haichuan’s home.
Jiangnan was in summer days at that time, so it was not easy to find plenty of ice cubes at one time; however, Lin’s Group had stored a great number of ice cubes in its canteen freezers to relief the summer heat for its staff.
Lin Momo was quite a capable woman. Saber and Sword sent to large bags of ice cubes to Su Haichuan’s house within ten minutes.
Qin Haodong asked Saber to take off Su Xiaolong’s clothes and put him in the bathtub in the bathroom. Then he took out the silver needle and puncture the crucial point on his chest to protect his heart.
After all the work had been done, Qin Haodong let Saber pulled all ice cubes into the basin. The ice water actually worked; within five minutes, Su Xiaolong’s fever was cooled down to normal.
Qin Haodong felt his pause again and find the frequency of parasite activity in inside him dropped significantly, and they had stopped spawning.
As time went by, about ten more minutes later, Su Xiaolong opened his eyes. He felt so cold that his lips were blue. He couldn’t speak because of the trembling. He could only watch the couple with his pleading eyes, which pretty much said that he could no longer go on with this.
Li Yue shared her son’s pain, and she said to Qin Haodong, “Doctor Qin, would this work? Could this go wrong?”
“Don’t worry, he’ll be fine,” Qin Haodong said as he flicked several times on the end of the needle, transferring the Green Wood Genuine Qi into Su Xiaolong and maintained his life so that he wouldn’t die of low temperature.
Soon the miracle took place. Su Xiaolong’s temperature kept going down, from high as 39 degrees to around 20 degrees.
The normal temperature of human beings was constant because the body knew how to adjust it. Even in extremely cold conditions, body temperature remains constant. It was unbelievable that Su Xiaolong’s temperature jumped down to 20 more degrees so soon.
As his body temperature decreased and dropped lower than the range in which the parasites survive, the parasites began to die fast. Some of the tough ones might have survived, but they were trying their best to get out of the cold host body.
Those parasites eventually gathered and lined into a white string, worming out of Su Xiaolong’s nostrils, but the temperature outside was even lower than the body. They dropped into ice water as soon as they went out, and died immediately.
This situation lasted for half an hour. Qin Haodong kept transferring Green Wood Genuine Qi into Su Xiaolong to maintain his life. At last, he felt the pause again to make sure that all parasites were dead. Then he let Saber and Sword take him out of the tub and put him on the bed.
At the moment, Su Xiaolong’s lips were already black and his breath was faint. His body was cold as ice and he felt much like a dead man.
The couple asked nervously, “Doctor Qin, is Xiaolong OK?”
Qin Haodong said, “All the parasites had been eliminated, and he’s on his way to recover. He’ll be fine soon.”
Now Gao Fengwen respected Qin Haodong’s medical skills even more. He asked, “Medical Sage, those parasites had been expelled out, but what about the damages on his organs that have already been done? How would that recover?”
“The best way to repair the injured organ is the Rejuvenative Acupuncture.”
Qin Haodong said as he took out the needle bag and helped Su Xiaolong repair the damaged internal organs with the Rejuvenative Acupuncture.
Ten more minutes later, he took back his needles and put his right hand on Su Xiaolong’s Dantian, then he expelled all the residue cold Qi inside him with Green Wood Genuine Qi.
“Okay, get up!”
Qin Haodong said as he patted on Su Xiaolong’s chest.
In the expecting eyes of all the people around, Su Xiaolong sat on the bed quickly, and his pale face had turned rosy.
“Doctor Qin, thank you for saving me.”
Su Xiaolong knew clearly about what was going on outside, and he knew the young man in front of him saved his life. He jumped off the bed and kneeled down before Qin Haodong.
Seeing their son getting vigorous again, the couple was moved into tears. They had been worried and frightened too much these days and now they kneeled down together with their son. They were so grateful to Qin Haodong.
Qin Haodong lifted the three up and said, “Get up, I’m a doctor, and it’s my duty to save people.”
Seeing Qin Haodong treat a patient which he had no way to treat so soon, Gao Fengwen said emotionally, “Medical Sage, I’m totally impressed by your medical skills. Even the best doctor Hua Tuo in Chinese history would be no match of yours.”
After that, the family warmly invited Qin Haodong to the living room. They poured tea, set fruit plate and tried their best to treat Qin Haodong.
After everything has been done, Su Haichuan said, “Doctor Qin, thank you for saving my son. Just tell me how much is your charge for this. I’ll never turn it down as long as I can afford it.”
He was confident when he said that. On one hand, he had to thank Qin Haodong for saving his son’s life, and on the other hand, he was indeed very rich as a sculpture master.
Qin Haodong took his own cloth bag and said, “You can pay me by sculpting this.”
Su Haichuan’s eyes were lightened up when seeing the yellow jade inside the bag. He took it over and said excitedly, “I’ve been sculpting jade for so many years, but I’ve never seen such a high-quality one. It’s the best of all, definitely the best!”
The reason why he became a master was that he kept treating sculpting as an art, not the way to make a living. He was fascinated by the jade on the first glance.
“Master Su, I’ll send the jade as a birthday gift three days later. Please design it for me.”
“Three days? That a bit of a rush.” Su Haichuan thought for a moment and said, “But you can count on me, I’ll finish it even if I can’t sleep because I owe you this.”
Qin Haodong discussed more details of the sculpture with Su Haichuan. He left with Saber and Sword after the final plan was made.
Back to the president’s office, Lin Momo asked, “Did you see Master Su? How is it going?”
“Of course I saw him, I’ll give you a satisfying birthday gift three days later.”
“Really, are you lying?” Lin Momo said with disbelief.
“Of course it is real. I went there by myself, why would Master Su turn me down?”
“What’s the cost then? The time was too short, and that must cost a lot.”
“Not a penny!” Qin Haodong smiled and said, “Master Su said that I was too handsome to be charged.”
Lin Momo glanced at him and said, “Stop it, I’m serious.”
“I’m serious, too. Master Su didn’t charge me; it’s totally free!”
Qin Haodong told the whole story of how he treated Su Xiaolong to Lin Momo, then Lin Momo believed him.
Since the birthday gift had been handled, Qin Haodong left the Group and went back to Daddy Security Company. After a busy night, the ten stone-cutters had finally dealt with all the raw gemstones in the storage.
The cut jade was piled up in the storage, and all of them were of nice quality. Each would be worth more than a million.
Qin Haodong nodded with satisfaction. According to the agreement, he sent every stone-cutter 10,000 yuan as the bonus. But while he was giving the money, he erased their memories on this by Mind-manipulating.
The ten stone-cutters left with the memory that they had been here, but they wouldn’t be able to recall other things.
Qin Haodong didn’t seel those raw jade gemstone at once after they were cut. He sold only 20% of them in case of accidents. He sent Nalan Wushuang to negotiate with the procurement department of Lin’s Group, and the deal was made on the price of 200 million.
When the deal was done, Qin Haodong had all kinds of thoughts in his mind when looking at the long number in his bank account. He was worried about the 200 million start-up funds two days ago, but now his money had doubled.
But the money didn’t mean much to him if he kept it in his hands, so he transferred 400 million to Ma Wenzhuo. If they wanted to start a business in Shanghai, it would better be a large one.
In the house of the Lins, Lin Zhigao was sitting on the sofa in the living room, upset. He was like a noodle without any strength, and that was how he looked like after he had taken Qin Haodong’s Physique-Improving Pill, or he could’ve been totally drained up by Zhang Xiuying during the intense last night.
But Zhang Xiuying was the only one to blame for this. She drugged Lin Momo’s wine with three times the normal amount, and she couldn’t find anyone to help after she drank it, so Lin Zhihao became the one suffering the consequence.
Beside Lin Zhigao, Zhang Xiuying was crying with nose-running. Now she had gone viral on the internet. The striptease dance in public was all over the internet, and people can see it on any website.
“Enough, stop crying! It’s no big deal!”
Lin Pingchao said annoyedly.
“No big deal? It’s so humiliating! How can I get out of the house and face other people in the future?” Zhang Xiuying wiped her tears and yelled with a twisted face. “It definitely has something to do with Qin Haodong. You have to get him to pay for this, son!”
