Surgery on the Fly

Sat Feb 15, 2020 12:03 am

Cylus 2 720

Gennadiya slipped from her horse and mustered all of her determination to keep from swaying as her feet hit the ground. The Lysorian was a city dweller and usually rode in a carriage or wagon when a horse was involved in the equation. She had ridden a few times but never enough to truly become comfortable with a horse, and this trek to Storm’s Edge was not easy for her. Sheer will power forced her to stand up straight despite the screams from the muscles in her backside.

She took her horses reigns and walked the beautiful creature towards where the others were being corralled his evening. With her were other volunteers from the Order who had answered the call to come and help the Knights at Storm’s Edge. Gennadiya paused and looked at the horse trying to remember all of the places that saddle was strapped into place. She hadn’t ever saddle a horse but they had showed her how that morning. Slowly the young healer began to unstrap the saddle. Once she had found them all she carefully pulled the saddle down the side trying to prepare herself for the impact as the full weight of leather saddle landed in her arms. She gave a umph as she for a moment struggled and then securing the weight she ungracefully moved it to where the others had already placed there saddles. Once in place she stood up straight and finished taking care of her horse.

As she came to join the others she began to realize that they were a bit early is stopping today she looked at the gold cloak who was running this expedition. He was standing and looked over all of them before he spoke. “I have called an early stop to this trials travels so that we could have the chance to prepare for the coming event.” He said in a rather cracked voice. “I know you are all qualified medics, but most of you haven’t ever done healing on a battle field, and let me tell you that is something different. And while I can’t truly prepare you I don’t want you to be blind sided either. So tonight your all are going to get lessons in combat surgery.”

The gold cloak looked around at the various members of the Order who had come to help with Storm Edge Keep. His eyes looked a little sad as he spoke. “Time is always a concern when it comes to healing, but in a battle it becomes even more critical. I have been in battles where the people coming in out number the healers by twenty to one.” The crowd of order members had been quiet before but the silence now was stunned. Gennadiya quietly listen but already could see where this statement was going and felt her heart growing heavy.

“Diagnosing becomes extremely critical, but this is different, you will be faced with wounds most of which are obvious, but don’t let that allow you to become complacent. Especially since you will now have to make the hardest diagnose you have ever had to make. Can we save them.” Adiya flinched at that last comment. The young woman could already see it in her head. Bodies coming in with wounds that a bandage would stem. Others would have to be taken into surgery right away to be stitched up or possible amputation. Then those who are holding on to life but have lost too much blood. With a lot of time and focus maybe they could be saved, maybe.

The instructors voice continued explaining what she was picturing. He continued on though. “Back at the hospital we have staff and time to focus on anyone. Here you might have to trade one life to save four who in the same time could be treated.” He grew quiet and there was a hard silence among all of the brothers and sisters of the Order. “I am sorry to be so blunt but I wanted you all to understand that this is a serious. I am also sorry to you green cloaks as this will most fall on your heads as those with more experience will be in surgery.” There was a small gasp from one of the green cloaks.

“Okay. Any questions on this subject.” There weren’t any what was there to say.
