I was recently called for a peds consult to the plastic surgery department. I took the wrong elevator to the floor and ended up in an unused, closed off part of the hospital. Stepping out of the elevator, I found a poor bird trapped in this area. She was trying to fly through one of the glass window and repeatedly hurt herself against the glass. It was so heart breaking.
Since, the consult was urgent, I went back down to switch elevators to get to the right place. I informed one of the security staff about the trapped bird and rushed off to handle the consult. After finishing my consult, I went back to check if they had freed the tiny creature only to find it still flitting around. I somehow managed to guide it towards the window and out.
I am blessed with the work of saving the lives of littles ones every day but today Mother Divine gave me the priveledge of helping those who have no voice to advocate for them. I’m thankful that I took the wrong elevator to the right floor.
Everything happens for a reason, even taking the wrong elevator to the right floor. Jai Sri Hari!
