Stranded sa Taiwan

"Kelan kayo pupunta sa Taiwan?" Tanong ni Sisil kay Yanna.

"9 days na lang " todo ang ngiti ni Yannang sumagot.

"Akkaw, 9 days baga? De halatang excited."

(Date ang tinatanong, countdown ang sagot...hahaha)

Sa PGH lang may Toxicologist


              The phone kept on ringing on the other end , until an automated voice prompted "The number you have dialed in now unattended. Please try your call again later". I kept calling anyway. I tried five times. I was calling East Avenue Poison control , a phone number listed over the internet.

           I caught a glimpse of my patient's mother. She was distraught. Tears were continuously flowing out of her eyes and I knew she wanted to howl like a wounded dog. She was trying to be super nice to the utmost of her ability... I think she was afraid that I might just give up doing what I was doing.

Yung Araw na Tinamaan Ako

                    This could get a little dirty.

     The previous week was really busy. The hospital was so packed with patients that we had to call to reserve rooms at the admitting section before admitting patients to the emergency room (bummer...). But by the end of the week, the toxicity died down. My patient's parents were all happy to be sent home.

     I was ,nevertheless, looking forward to a peaceful, no phone call weekend evening (yey) and , maybe, the following day, I can take the two kids for a few kilometers of swim to wear them out.(Mwahahaha...).

(Swerte mo Ate, nasa Maynila ka.)

Burned Out

          An adult female in her mid thirties together with two other persons came barging inside the clinic.

          Before introducing herself, she started asking multiple successive questions. She was highly confident and very authoritative. She was asking about her patient's conditions, complications, treatment and long term outcome. And more thoroughly, she was asking about hospital charges.

          When I finally had a chance to interrupt, I said, "Wait, What?!"

Half Ilocano, Half Pilipino

"I'm half Ilocano."

I heard my eldest say. She was telling it to her playmates. She was only 5 years old. Although, it was true that her grandmother was Ilocano, I think, she was a bit proud that she can speak a few words of Ilocano, and, she felt that she can understand a bit of Ilocano too."Wen."
