58 You Can Do Anything 你无所不能

Many years ago,my dad was diagnosed with a terminal heart condition. He was put on permanent disability and was unable to work at a steady job. He would be fine for quite a while,but would then fall suddenly ill and have to be admitted to the hospital.
许多年前,我父亲被诊断出患有晚期心脏病,这是一种慢性疾病,这病使他无法再在固定岗位工作,因为这病过一段时间就会突然发作,这样他不得不住进医院。

He wanted to do something to keep himself busy,so he decided to volunteer at the local children hospital. My dad loved kids. It was the perfect job for him. He ended up working with the terminally and critically ill children. He would talk to them and play with them and do arts and crafts with them. Sometimes,he would lose one of his kids. In certain instances,he would tell the grieving parents of these children that he would soon be with their child in heaven and that he would take care of them until they got there. He would also ask the parent if there was a message they would like to send with him for their child.
父亲想做点什么让自己忙起来,并最终决定到当地一家儿童医院做一个志愿者,这对于喜欢小孩的父亲来说,是一份再合适不过的工作了。父亲的工作是与那些病重并已走到生命终点的孩子相处在一块。父亲与他们交谈,与他们玩耍,与他们一起做工艺品。有时候,他会失去其中一个孩子。每到这个特殊时刻,他就会告诉那些沉浸在悲伤中的孩子的父母们,他很快就会随着这些孩子到天堂,他会照顾这些孩子直到孩子的父母到达天堂。甚至,他还会问那些父母是否有需要他帮忙捎带口信给他们在天堂里的孩子。

My dad assurances seemed to help parents with their grieving. One of his kids was a girl who had been admitted with a rare disease that paralyzed her from the neck down. I don't know the name of the disease or what the prognosis usually is,but I do know that it was very sad for a girl around eight or nine years old. She couldn't do anything,and she was very depressed. My dad decided to try to help her. He started visiting her in her room,bringing paints,brushes and paper. He stood the paper up against a backing,put the paintbrush in his mouth and began to paint. He didn't use his hands at all. Only his head would move. He would visit her whenever he could and paint for her. All the while he would tell her,see,you can do anything you set your mind to.
父亲的承诺似乎减轻了那些父母的悲伤。在这些孩子当中,有一个小女孩患有一种罕见的疾病,脖子以下都瘫痪了,我不知道这是一种什么病,但我知道这对一个8到9岁的小女孩来说有多么残忍。她不能做任何事,这使她非常沮丧。父亲决定试着去帮助她。他带着画笔和纸到小女孩的病房探望她,父亲把纸靠着某一物体竖起来后,就开始用嘴咬着画笔画起来,他一点也没用到他的手,只是移动头部就完成了整个画画过程。任何时候,只要他的身体状况允许,他就去探望小女孩并为她画画,并且一直告诉女孩,看到了吗?只要你用心去做,没有什么事情可以难倒你的。

Eventually,she began to paint using her mouth,and she and my dad became friends. Soon after,the little girl was discharged because the doctors felt there was nothing else they could do for her. My dad also left the children hospital for a little while because he became ill. Sometime later after my dad had recovered and returned to work,he was at the volunteer counter in the lobby of the hospital. He noticed the front doors open. In came the little girl who had been paralyzed,only this time she was walking. She ran straight over to my dad and hugged him really tight. She gave my dad a picture she had done using her hands. At the bottom it read,thank you for helping me walk.
最终,女孩开始用她的嘴画画,并且与父亲成了好朋友。不久,医生认为已经无法再为小女孩做什么了,于是,小女孩出院了。随后,我父亲因为病情加重也离开了儿童医院。父亲在病情好转后不久,又返回儿童医院工作,成了医院大堂柜台的一名志愿者。这一天,父亲意识到前门被打开了,之前瘫痪的那个小女孩走了进来,这一次,她是走着进来。小女孩朝我父亲直奔过来,并且紧紧地搂住他。小女孩给了父亲一幅她用手画的画,画的下方,写着:谢谢你让我学会走路。

My dad would cry every time he told us this story and so would we. He would say sometimes love is more powerful than doctors,and my dad - who died just a few months after the little girl gave him the picture - loved every single child in that hospital.
每次父亲告诉我们这个故事都忍不住哭了起来,我们也一样。他会说有时候爱的力量比医生的力量都要大。我的父亲,在小女孩给他那幅画的几个月后与世长辞。那幅画的名字是——爱医院里每一个孤单的孩子
