With the aid of the medicines, Xia Jianguo’s condition was quickly under control and gradually recovered. On the third day, after drinking five sets of medicine, Xia Jianguo’s blood was completely cleared of toxins. Guo Ming changed a new prescription to help repair the damaged organs and help the wound heal. At this time, she has become like a goddess in the hospital. Since the first day of successfully expelling the toxins for Xia Jianguo through traditional Chinese medicine, many representatives of traditional Chinese medicine from major hospitals had come over to learn. With her permission, each of her prescriptions were taken to study. Fortunately, everyone knows that this is a matter of curing diseases and saving people and should not be sloppy. Therefore, the representatives of Chinese medicine tried to minimize their presence and learn from the side so that it does not affect the process of treatment. As for Guo Ming, she was also very fond of these doctors that were studious, from time to time, she would also give some additional advice when administering needles or grasping medicine. It could be said that everyone was happy there.
With the help of both needles and medicines, Xia Jianguo woke up half a month later.
All the medical staff breathed a sigh of relief after he woke up. The subsequent treatment became smoother after that. Every morning, Guo Ming would proceed to Zeng’s family to help treat Zeng Miaomiao. After that, she would then go to the hospital to help Xia Jianguo. The task of preparing the medicines was now being tasked to others. All she had to do was to assist Xia Jianguo with the golden needles to better absorb the medicine for better recovery. Although Xia Jianguo’s current injury is still very serious, for Guo Ming, the difficulty of administering a needle to him is lower than that of administering a needle to Zeng Miaomiao. After all, this only needs acupuncture assistance, what Zeng Miaomiao needs is to reshape the meridians.
After another week, Wu Yuanyuan told her that the time to go home with her was approaching. Upon hearing this, Guo Ming wrote the next few prescriptions to Liang Jili. She also prepared several boxes of external use ointments in advance and left them behind to ensure Xia Jianguo’s trauma has enough medicine during her period of absence. After explaining all the necessary precautions to Mr. Xia, Guo Ming bid farewell.
For the Zeng family’s side, Zeng Miaomiao was now able to start her rehabilitation slowly with the help of crutches. This was something that no one had thought of at the time. Because the Chinese New Year was about to come, Guo Ming stopped her treatment and only let Zeng Miaomiao continue to take the medicine according to the prescription. She also explained that the daily rehabilitation time should not exceed half an hour. After all, the meridians have not completely reshaped. If she acts too hastily, she may suffer damage. The Zeng family obeyed Guo Ming’s words, saying that they would absolutely follow Guo Ming’s requirements. As Guo Ming and Pang Deyou were leaving Zeng’s house, each of them were given a card, saying it was a Spring Festival gift.
With the given cards, the two of them went to the mall together. It is a must for Pang Deyou to go to Zhang Renyi’s house during the New Year, so he needs to buy some presents quickly. Although he knows that Guo Ming will be going to Wu Yuanyuan’s home, he felt that Guo Ming was too cautious about the gifts for Wu Yuanyuan’s parents, which made Pang Deyou feel strange, even the look in Guo Ming’s eyes looks weird.
Guo Ming didn’t pay much attention to it. She had asked Wu Yuanyuan earlier on about her parents. She was told that her parents didn’t have many hobbies, so like any other ordinary people respecting their partner’s parents, she bought a few cartons of cigarettes and a few bottles of wine for Wu’s father. She also bought two sets of skin care products for her mum. Also, she bought a cashmere coat for each of them. Lastly, she prepared two big red Ang Bao for the New Year’s Eve. At a glance, it should be good enough, so she packed her bags and went home with Wu Yuanyuan.
Wu Yuanyuan lives in City B. Although it is also a provincial capital in the north, it is still a second-tier city. It takes about 4 hours for the two to get to City B and of course there was a difference in temperature between the two cities. Before leaving, Wu Yuanyuan had brought Guo Ming to the mall and bought a long down jacket and furry snow boots. Although her home was not as cold as the northeast, it still snows in winter.
After getting off the plane and retrieving their luggage, Wu Yuanyuan opened the suitcases and took out the down coats. The two coats were of the same style, one army green and one dark blue. Wu Yuanyuan was inexplicably jealous when she looked at Guo Ming’s long legs. Her height was really dominant. The bulky down coat worn on her body doesn’t seem to look bloated at all. She looks so good.
The coat was attached with a hat and there was a circle of fluffy fox hair surrounding the side of the hat, but each of them still wore a separate woolen hat. Wu Yuanyuan’s small face looks swollen within the hat, coupled with a cold red nose, she was really cute. Guo Ming couldn’t help but take her into her arms. Wu Yuanyuan couldn’t help being a little shy with all the people coming and going at the airport, but she still buried her face in Guo Ming with joy in her heart.
When the two reached Wu Yuanyuan’s house, it was already an hour later. When the door opened, Father Wu and Mother Wu were already waiting at the door with a big smile on their faces. Guo Ming suddenly felt stage fright, this inexplicable mood made her feel shy. She followed Wu Yuanyuan, said hello to the two old people and continued to follow Wu Yuanyuan to place her luggages.
Wu Yuanyuan’s parents live on the top floor of a duplex house. There is a river outside the huge floor-to-ceiling windows. According to Wu Yuanyuan,it’s called the mother river. The scenery here was very good. The house was also beautifully cleaned and the warm colors decoration makes people feel very at ease. The first floor was the living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and a study room. On the second floor was the parents’ bedroom and Wu Yuanyuan’s bedroom, as well as a guest room. The rooms were in the form of suites and the toilets are all in the room. When they heard that Wu Yuanyuan was going to take her good friends home for the New Year. Mother Wu cleaned up the guest room well in advance and all the bedding was replaced with new ones. As soon as she entered the room, there was a warm scent of the sun.
After putting down her luggage, Guo Ming hurriedly took out the present prepared for the two elders. Her suitcase was mainly filled with gifts and she didn’t have much clothings of her own. They were in bunches of big and small bags. The sheer amount of things shocked Father Wu and Mother Wu. Both of them recognised the presents and naturally knew how much these things were worth. While feeling that Guo Ming was being too polite, they also told her not to buy so many things next time. At this young age, she should save more money for her own future use.
Guo Ming smiled and said sincerely: “Uncles and aunts, just accept it. I…have had no parents since I was a child. This is the first time I get to celebrate the Chinese New Year at home.”
The two old folks felt uneasy and hurriedly accepted the gifts and then enthusiastically took Guo Ming to sit at the dining table.
Because their daughter was coming back, the two elders prepared a lot of delicious food. Although only four people were eating, there was enough food to fill a big table. During the banquet, Father Wu wanted a drink, but Mother Wu and Wu Yuanyuan Wu doesn’t drink. When Guo Ming said she would drink with him, he quickly opened his collection happily and the two drank and chatted with a table full of delicious dishes.
“Xiao Guo, what do you do?”
“Uncle, I’m a doctor.”
“That’s good, lady doctors are more caring! What are you specialised in?”
“I am a Chinese medicine doctor.”
“Guo Ming is a very good Chinese medicine doctor, she can treat any disease!” Wu Yuanyuan interrupted while chewing on the chicken feet in her hand.
“Really! I think Chinese medicine is better than western medicine! Western medicine treats the symptoms but not the root cause. Although Chinese medicine is slow to come, it can get rid of the root problems!”
“Auntie is right, Chinese medicine cures the roots. However, Chinese medicine can also be fast, not slower than Western medicine.”
“Xiao Guo, which subject are you good at?”
“All subjects are okay, as well as bone setting.” Guo Ming thought to himself, I am best at using poison, but I don’t want to talk about it.
“It’s so amazing! It just so happens that I often have low back pain recently, can you help me check it when I finish eating.” Mother Wu said happily.
“You don’t need to finish eating, I can check it for you now.” Guo Ming said, putting down her chopsticks and wiping her hands, then she took Mama Wu’s wrist.
After a while, Guo Ming asked seriously: “Auntie, do you have any other discomforts besides low back pain?”
“There are no other problems, what’s wrong with me?” Mother Wu looked at Guo Ming’s expression, a little worried.
“Small problem, a small lump has grown in your womb.”
