This incident occurred in the year 2000. Our family was facing severe financial crisis during that period.
I had a dental issue and had to undergo a surgery. For the surgery to be performed I had to visit the dentist and get some tests done along with an x ray.
I had no money to undergo the treatment. But my case was an emergency. According to the hospital rules, any patient’s file will be maintained by them only for 3 years. My file was outdated.
So I had to first re- register with the hospital. That would cost me Rs.60/-, then the tests and the x ray would cost around 600/-. I approached the reception and wanted to take a chance. I gave my patient id and was certain that they will say it is outdated.
But My Sai, brought my file to their table and saved that 60/- for me. I was amazed because the file should have gone to record room by then.
Even more interesting incident happened. As I was waiting for the doctor to call me, I was earnestly praying to Baba to help me through the situation. When the doctor called, couple of x rays were taken, then I was given a date for the surgery.
I had to settle my account with the hospital reception. As I was about to leave, the doctor called me and said, there is a credit balance in your account, and you need not pay anything. I was speechless. How could this happen? Sai the doctor did this for me. My surgery went off well and I did not have to pay any amount.
Sai is a wondrous saint. Let us ever seek his feet for our salvation.
