Last Saturday, the country was hit by a raging typhoon. It was so devastating and nobody was prepared for it. The most affected area is the metro manila area. Water was all over the place flooding every house up to 5 to 6 ft high. Many cars were stranded and eventually washed away with strong current. People from every walk of life are all victims. Even subdivisions that are not flood-prone are now submerged uinderwater. Many lives were lost due to drowning, hypothermia and maybe starvation. Many lives too are lost while risking to save other people's lives. The Philippines needs our prayers and our support. We proved to the world many times before that we are a resilient country, let us show to the world that we still are. Be strong Philippines! Hold On....
This morning my dad had an accident during his gym session. A 15 lb dumble plate hit his forehead leaving a 2-inch open wound on it. He was bleeding profusely when his friend found him. My mom and I hurriedly went to check on him and brought him to the hospital. The doctor had his head x-rayed and the wound stitched up. He will be under observation for 24 hours. Im praying and hoping that he will recover well without any complications.
Last September 18, the mhc rr-sicu staff went on an escapade! We decided to invade the wonderful place of Kapatagan. We left Davao City at around 9:30 and arrived at the place near 11 am. we had a late breakfast and then later, prepared our lunch. The place was own by the aunt of my co-RR nurse. We were lucky enough to have the place exclusively for us and of course for free! It was a breathtaking experience considering we were on top of a mountain and all we see are the green trees, elegant mountain and the great blue sky. We hit the pool right before we had our lunch, we just couldn't resist the tempting the cold blue water. Here are some of the pics taken during that day! have fun!
Tomorrow will be a big day for the MHC RR-SICU staffs. We will be having an escaped to a place we are still planning to invade. All we know that all of us will be having a day off from the hospital premises. Looking forward for this big event! Guys? Where are we really going?
Ronald will be leaving for 13 day field work in cagayan, pagadian and ipil. This will be his longest trip since we got married. I never imagined that it would be this difficult. Well, there's nothing I can do, duty calls. I just pray that he will be safe all the time and hope he gets better because he still has a fever.
Yesterday, my cousins from Manila arrived. We are having a sort of a reunion since we haven't seen each other for a while and some of them have not visited davao for the longest time. They are planning to go to the different attraction sites here in davao such as the crocodile park, pearl farm beach resort and just yesterday, they went to eden nature park. They will only be here for a short period of time, so we are really trying to fit everything in.

This morning, Ronald arrived from Manila after 4 days of seminar. I realized that I really missed him a lot. I thank God for the safe trip home. We went to the supermarket this afternoon to fill in our empty grocery rack and visited my parents after. I am glad to be able to spend time with him again. Will make the most out of it coz the week after next, he will be going on a trip again. I guess I just have to accept the nature of his work.
Last night was a blast! The RR-SICU staff and some of East Wing and CCU staffs started the night with a casual dinner. Me and two of my colleagues arrived late. Some the peeps were already hitting the video-oke. After dinner, our beloved "boss" started a sort of a meeting, there he explained the reason of the unplanned get-together. The first agenda of the meeting was all about the technicalities of MHC. Issues on staffing and interpersonal relationships were tackled. The second part was all about our wishes for our Ate Karen who will be leaving for the States soon. We said our goodlucks and thank yous to her and of course our wish that she will soon find her one true love there. After the meeting, it was party time! We all took turn in holding the microphone, singing our hearts out. We stayed up until 1:30 in the morning. Left the place with a big smile in our face! Thanks for the treat boss!
The nurses in the RR and SICU of MHC felt some kind of a relief when our pt. was extubated yesterday. Even our consultants feared that our pt will have a difficult recovery but with God's grace and mercy, he was able to pull through. Tonight, our doctor is planning to have a thanksgiving threat for all of us. We're going to have some well-deserved fun tonight! keep posted!
I may sound pathetic but my life now is in a slow paced. Without my car, I can not go to places I want to go and do the things that concerns going to different places without boarding a cab. It is indeed difficult having to move around especially if you're used to have your own car. I checked into some site the sells used cars and I'm glad to have found some cars that would suit my taste and needs. I was actually looking for an SUV that would defy the flooded areas that we are passing to and from our home. I am also considering the ratio of gas or diesl consumption of the car since prices are going up inevitably. I'm glad to have found this site. For those of you who are interested, check this site out!
We're supposed to leave for Zamboanga today for mamang's 60th birthday but for some unforseen circumstances that ronald had to go to manila for a seminar we were not able to use our plane tickets. A waste of money indeed. The ticket cost us around P3500. Sigh! I guess, life is always like this...full of surprises and changes. All we have to do is to be ready.
