Lu Jingqing held his head low. A bad hunch was stirring in his heart, and his deep-set eyes clouded over with gloom.
The call was soon picked up.
However, before he could say anything, a sobbing female voice wafted into his ear. “Thank goodness, you finally called me back, Mr. Lu. Madam Lu suddenly vomited blood and fell unconscious as she was having dinner. We can’t wake her up no matter how hard we’ve tried. Mr. and Mrs. Lu have already rushed her to the hospital. Hurry up and go have a look!”
Fu Zhi recognized the voice of Mama Liu, as it was very distinct.
Lu Jingqing’s face sank. He glanced at his wife, who was just as worried, before walking up to the hanger and taking down his suit jacket.
“Got it. I’ll go to the hospital right away.”
Mama Liu was rather agitated, as she was the one who took care of Madam Lu. Lu Jingqing asked a few more questions before hanging up the phone.
While he was putting on his suit jacket, Xu Wei hastily said, “We’ll go with you.”
Lu Jingqing nodded.
He knew his mother had a heart problem. She had undergone surgery a few years ago, and the doctor had said her heart could not handle too much stress. It was only then that she had decided to step down from her position as CEO of the company to recuperate in the house. Her condition had grown a lot better in the past two years, so none of them had expected something like this.
The more Lu Jingqing thought about it, the grimmer his face became. While his wife was preparing, he called Bai Yao.
Meanwhile, Fu Zhi took a vial of Chinese medicine out of her room. She handed it over to Xu Wei after the latter had put on her coat.
Holding the vial, Xu Wei asked, “What is this?”
“It’s a kind of medicine that’s very effective against heart disease. It can improve the blood flow in the bypass graft and maintain the function of the heart after surgery.”
Fu Zhi said softly, “You don’t have to worry too much about grandma’s condition. As long as she takes this medicine regularly, she will be fine.”
Xu Wei’s eyes widened in shock as she said, “You know your grandma has a heart disease and has gone through surgery before?”
She did not remember telling her daughter anything about Madam Lu before.
Fu Zhi nodded. When she saw that Xu Wei was about to ask another question, her eyebrows twitched and she quickly said, “Alright, don’t ask so many questions. You won’t understand even if I explain it to you.”
Xu Wei was stumped.
‘But I have been drinking fish soup every day!’
Xu Wei felt aggrieved.
Fu Zhi had noticed Madam Lu’s condition when they had visited the Lu Household the other day. However, there were four diagnostic methods in Traditional Chinese Medicine, known as inspection, auscultation and olfaction, interrogation, and palpation. It was a complex procedure, and considering Xu Wei’s understanding capacity, trying to explain would be like casting pearls before swine.
After saying that, Fu Zhi followed her mother downstairs. Before she got in the car, she reminded her, “Actually, an acupuncture treatment would have a better effect than taking medicine. Each treatment would take at least half an hour. When you’re in the hospital, you can ask grandma if she wants to try an acupuncture treatment or not. I have... a friend who is an acupuncturist.”
After hearing her daughter’s suggestion, Xu Wei thought for a while before saying, “Let her try out the pills first. Your grandmother doesn’t believe in traditional Chinese medicine, so she probably wouldn’t go.”
Of course, Fu Zhi’s friend would not force Madam Lu to have the treatment.
As for Xu Wei, she just did not want to let down her daughter. In reality, she did not believe that her daughter’s pills could treat heart disease at all.
Be that as it may, when she opened the vial, both she and Lu Jingqing, who was driving, were still amazed by the fragrance that assaulted their nostrils.
