Stabbed student carries on

(China Daily)

08:38, November 08, 2011

The university student was stabbed multiple times in his chest and leg when trying to help a classmate during a fight seven years ago, and despite three major operations, he still suffers from the damage to his heart, lung, kidney and left leg.

"I remain optimistic. After all, medical technology develops every day," said Chen, gentle and quiet, but looking a bit pale.

He has to sleep at least 10 hours a day and finds himself declining in energy and memory.

Nonetheless, Chen, 23, managed to graduate from high school and is now a senior in the physics department of Shanghai University.

Due to his weak health, the university arranged a double-bedroom dormitory for him, which is usually provided to doctoral students. His father, who used to work in a hospital, didn't return to work after the accident, but lives with his son seven days a week in the dormitory and takes care of him.

"My son looks sturdy when he talks to other people. He is not willing to show his disability. I'm the only one who sees the fragility of him," said his father, Chen Qiaosheng.

"Over the years, he has never had a good night's sleep. At night I constantly hear him moaning because of the severe pain in his chest," his father said.

Chen takes three painkillers every day, which, according to his father, is the maximum quantity. However, the pills help little.
