After donating blood for his sister, the boy asked: when am I going to die

This story was told to the world by a doctor named Jim Clark. His patient, five-year-old Lizzie, urgently needed a blood transfusion. Doctors realized that the girl’s best donor would be her twin brother.

Not only because they have the same blood type, but also because he himself had previously suffered from the same illness and completely recovered.

His blood contained antibodies that could have saved Lizzie’s life. When the doctor asked the boy if he was willing to share his blood with his sister, the boy was initially hesitant.

Then the doctor explained that it was the only way to save Lizzy, and the boy agreed. But neither the doctor nor the parents at that time knew that the child did not quite understand what was required of him.

The doctors performed a blood transfusion. The two twins lay side by side, and the doctor noted with satisfaction that Lizzie’s face was returning to a flush.

After the procedure was completed, the boy suddenly looked very seriously at the doctor and asked the question he would never forget.

Jim Clark later wrote on his social media page:

“Today I operated on a little girl. She needed a negative blood type. We didn’t get him, but we knew his twin brother had the same blood type. I explained to him that it was a matter of life and death.

He sat quietly for a minute, then got up and said goodbye to his parents. I didn’t attach any importance to it.

But when we finished, the boy suddenly asked: “And when will I die?” » He thought he was giving his life for his sister. »

Giving his sister his blood, the boy thought he was giving her life. But he accepted without saying a word. Of course, the doctors immediately assured him that he would not die.

What a wonderful story! When was the last time you told your siblings how much you love them?
