Sent by the Royal Flying Doctor Service to curb an outbreak of influenza in an Australian outback aboriginal community, Dr. Dan is ready for anything.
A half-caste aboriginal who feels he doesn’t belong…
Before I had a chance to fill the syringe, I heard the door open. I turned to see Daisy entering the sick room.
“Um, Daisy, the innoculations aren’t immediately effective. You probably shouldn’t be in here. You could get sick.”
Daisy shrugged. “I been with my Tommy since he got home. If I was gonna get sick, I’d be sick by now.”
“Then why did you agree to be immunized?”
Daisy grinned. “’Cause it would make you feel better, Dr. Dan.”
I chuckled at her logic. “True. And thank you, Daisy. I’m sure your example will help encourage others to be immunized.”
Under Daisy’s watchful eye, I prepped Tommy’s bicep with another sterile wipe before readying the syringe.
“Daisy, would you mind holding Tommy’s hand and talking to him quietly to keep him calm? I don’t want to give him a fright by just jabbing a needle into him while he’s half asleep.”
Daisy nodded, grasping the hand of the same arm I intended on injecting. She stroked his forehead with her free hand, and sang to him in low tones. To call what she sang a song, though, would be misleading. It was more a chant, soft and rhythmic, almost mesmerizing. As gently as I could, I slid the needle into his bicep. Other than an involuntary flinching, Tommy’s only other acknowledgment was to utter a breathy moan.
“This morning Tommy said to me he hurts all over. Like he’d gone and played too much footy. Your White Man medicine gonna help with that, Dr. Dan?”
“A little. If we’ve caught the infection early enough it will help stop it spreading. But mainly, we just need to keep him quiet, give him plenty of fluids, keep an eye that his temperature doesn’t get into the danger zone, and see he gets a lot of rest so his body can fight off the infection.
“With that in mind, Daisy, I’d like to hook Tommy up to a saline drip. I’ll need to get the equipment from the clinic. Do you think while I’m gone you could give Tommy a sponge bath?”
Daisy chuckled. “Sure, Dr. Dan, but Tommy’s not gonna like his mum washing his snake. I reckon he’d prefer you to wash it.”
