What’s  really important

So the doctor is taking care of a patient who in the ICU. Patient is intubated, has nasogastric tube and is on continuous dialysis. He was however awake for the first time today and was able to communicate with hand signals and writing on a board. Patient had severe infection and was on three different intravenous antibiotics, one of which was running at the moment.

When the doctor came to see him , the patients asked for his phone after the usual daily checkup. 

The doctor gave the patient his phone, offering to dial the number . To which the patient said no.

The patient took the phone and somehow managed to perform the most important thing he could think of upon waking up after several days in a coma .

Guess what?
