We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: Letters From the Sky

3. Did you ever consider an acting career? **No WAY!

4. What is the funniest situation you’ve witnessed in a religious setting? ** Not an actual setting thought but in a tv series where the bride tripped off while walking along the aisle.

5. What's the first movie you remember ever seeing in a theater? **Can't remember.

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

My Sister's Surgical Operation

Because of the findings in my sister's ultrasound reports (they're about 6 reports since February til May 2010), her gynecologist recommended a surgical operation. The procedure indicated is Exploratory Laparatomy since her ovarian cyst already measures 6.9mm. Upon her consultation last Saturday, she was told of the date and time of the operation.

It was last June 23, 2010 when she submitted herself for operation. Later of June 22, 2010, she had herself admitted in a private tertiary hospital. Too bad, I was at work and I wasn't able to assist her. Thank GOD, mom's around for her.

When I got into the hospital where she was admitted, she was already inside the operating room. I was told that my brother was able to get a glimpse of her cyst which is likened to an egg yolk. It took 2 hours before she got back in her room.

Seeing her, I can still see the bravery in her face. She looked so tired and still drowsy but she was able to talk to us. I liked the fact that she's also cooperative which in a way lessened the anxiousness she's feeling.

My sister was discharged from the hospital yesterday and thank GOD, she's able to manage everything well. As of now, she's recuperating here at home, taking all the MD's advices, adhering to the therapeutic regimen required of her. Compared during her first operative days, she's now a bit active with walking to and fro her bedroom without assistance.

To all friends who prayed for her, to my family for the unconditional support, and to all well-wishers, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I also owe much from YOU, GOD for all the guidance, the love and the enlightenment.

I am wishing that my sis will totally be okay pretty soon!

Sunday Stealing: The Oh My! Meme, Part One

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger and blog named Greeding Ruler. He does not state where he ripped it from. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. It's a long one, we'll do it in two parts! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

To My Dad On Father's Day!:)

Words can't express how grateful I am to my Dad. He's been a great father to me ever since I've existed. He may not be that expressive but nothing can compare the love he has showered to his family. He's always been there for us, treat us really as a FAMILY. He may be strict but I know he always keeps an eye of what's really good for us. His all-out support to each of us is incomparable!:)

On this day, I would like to salute my Dad for being the 'Best Father' that he is to us.



I would also like to share this wonderful poem from Helen Steiner Rice which I found so meaningful:

Fathers are Wonderful People
Fathers are wonderful people
Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should...

For, somehow, Father seems to be
The man who pays the bills,
While Mother binds up little hurts
And nurses all our ills...

And Father struggles daily
To live up to "HIS IMAGE"
As protector and provider
And "hero or the scrimmage"...

And perhaps that is the reason
We sometimes get the notion,
That Fathers are not subject
To the thing we call emotion,

But if you look inside Dad's heart,
Where no one else can see
You'll find he's sentimental
And as "soft" as he can be...

But he's so busy every day
In the grueling race of life,
He leaves the sentimental stuff
To his partner and his wife...

But Fathers are just WONDERFUL
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolade of praise,

For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness...

And like OUR HEAVENLY FATHER,
He's a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be ALWAYS ON OUR SIDE.

B y: Helen Steiner Rice

Once again, Happy Father's Day Papa/Daddy!:) I love you so much!:)

Note: I am also greeting my Brother, Amiel a Happy Father's Day!:)

After-Graveyard-Shift 'Lakwatsa!

I came from a graveyard shift yesterday. I was a about to go home when I thought of visiting my previous ward @ Pedia Main & had chit-chats with old friends. Little did I know that yesterday was also the day when they're sponsoring a seminar. Without having breakfast at all, I was with them, supporting them for their 'Childhood Trauma' seminar. I did not perform any role though. I was just informed to take a seat and be with the participants. I stayed there for only two hours because I decided to consult my lab result to a medical practitioner who told me to get my labs done. Before leaving, they gave me snacks for free.

Exactly 10.30AM, I visited my MD. She told me to have my repeat CBC done by Monday because I got an increased WBC. She said I should have consulted earlier and not after a week when all my labs were done. Since I wasn't sleepy yet, I decided to go to Victoria Plaza to do some inquiry at Unionbank. It was successful because I was able to deposit a little amount so that my EON ATM account could have some cash. 'Ate my lunch there & fortunately, I saw our former clinical instructor. We chatted for more than an hour I think. It was already past 2pm when I decided to go home.

I did have a good time despite my having lack of sleep. It was one of those rarest moments I had for myself. Thank really GOD for that single opportunity!:)

I slept for about 2 hours when I got home.

For My Sis

Family always matters to me. I've been considering them my 'precious gifts' since the day I got into consciousness. That whatever happens to my family, I always vouch myself to always be their shield & their strength no matter what. They're these people whom I can never trade for anything else in this world just so because they're my family.

Having my sister, is one great gift I am always indebted of to GOD. Much more when I knew that we almost looked the same where some even called us 'twins' separated at birth. We got our share of stories to tell about how we bond as sisters, how something could turn us to fight at each other on petty things which is inevitable, how we compromise to avoid misunderstandings, and how we stay strong for the trials in the family. These are what really made us tightened our bond, as sisters.

Recently, my sister has been put to test in terms of her health. She got this ovarian cyst that warranted her for a surgical operation. The time she knew this, I knew she's becoming anxious and worried. I even read her blog post that depicts how she's really feeling about her health. As her sister, I can't help but worry about her too. It also pains me in the inside to see her getting anxious and worried about it but I always try to maintain my composure as I always kneel down and pray to the Heavens that my sister will always be safe from any harm. Being the medical professional that I am, I am trying to make her feel at ease, trying to encourage her to tighten her grip on GOD, and submit herself to any therapeutic regimen required of her. After all, I knew GOD is always and will always be there for her. At least I am thankful now that she has gained the confidence to face her fears with me and the family's promise to be with her in fighting for this battle.

To my sister Aems, I hope you always stay positive. Never let your fears attack you. Instead, face your fears with optimism, believe that everything's going to be okay, and always believe in what GOD can do for you and for all of us. I promise I'll always be there for you Sis. You know that I care for you, you know that our family cares a lot about you, so take care of yourself too and stay positive. I know we can get through with this test, soon. Remember, it's not only your test but ours too.

Love you sis! I am pretty sure everyone in the family loves you too just like everyone else DO.

And...here we go!

1. Almost more than an hour this afternoon before hitting 6:58.
2. It was the reason, of course, that I tried to sacrifice for it.
3. Having you back as a friend is something I no longer feel the need to do.
4. I have another errand to run, then I'd hit the sheets.
5. Wanna know where my heart is?...just go find it
6. What were once vices are still considered as vices until today.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to sleep, tomorrow my plans include accompanying my sis to her doctor and Sunday, I want to hear mass after work!

Lovin' My June Work Skeds!

I think it's not that late to blog about this:

I am just lovin' my June work skeds! How can I not love it when during weekends, it's either I am OFF or I am in an AM shift! Sounds so cool to me since I love working on an AM shift during weekends which only means I get less people to deal with inside the nurse station. It won't appear so busy when there are only a few left inside during working hours. I also love the fact that I get to hear mass every Sundays which I've been wanting to do.

At least now my June skeds are as convenient as ever!
Thanks to Ma'am Intsik for making my June sked great!

I hope I could have great skeds like this in the next coming months! ;)

My Saturday Offday!

Last Saturday was another off day for me. Instead of staying at home on that day, I decided to go somewhere else with my friend. We finally decided we should spend time mall hopping. First stop, we're at Victoria Plaza. I was told Paolo Paraiso, a Filipino celebrity, was there which I was really aware of because Paolo Paraiso himself informed his Twitter followers that he' be at Victoria Plaza on that day at a specific time. True enough, I saw Paolo Paraiso. I got a bit shy to approach him but I did support his quest by donating an amount for cancer-stricken children.

Next stop? We watched a 'Dog Show' sponsored by the Davao Canine Sports Club. I was so fascinated with how the trainers trained their respective dogs! Their dogs are like humans because they knew how to follow instructions! I even thought of having a pet dog (again!) but I guess one should be really capable enough to handle it. With my sked at work, I knew I am not ready yet to take care of one.

After spending some time at Victoria Plaza, we headed to Gaisano Mall. My stay at Gaisano Mall won't be complete without satisfying my gut with a Big American Waffle Ice Cream from Spike's Frozen Treats! Then we decided we should eat dinner while waiting for my sis who's joining us there. We had Pasta Platter which we bought in a certain food kiosk @ Spazzio. Thank GOD really because we've gone so full! When my sister arrived, it was time we bought tickets to watch 'The Karate Kid'. After she bought her food, it was time we got inside the cinema. Whew! I got so hooked with Jaden Smith's moves! I even found him so cute. Her dad, Will Smith and her Mom, J. Pinkett, must be really proud of their son. The whole movie was great!

It was about 11:30 when I got home & I had fun!:)

Silence Hurts!

We argued. You've gone mad. Our friendship had gone shaken since then.

It's been months now. It's been exactly four (4) months since that incident - the incident which I didn't expect to happen. In these four months, I only wish for one thing - that YOU come out, say something about how you really feel, and decide whether YOU still want me as a friend or not. The reason why I still hope is because I still can't accept the whole fact that that supposedly simple yet a bit striking statement of mine could really put an END TO OUR FRIENDSHIP. I mean we've gone through a lot and we never faced any arguments until your mind was stirred with that one single statement I said.

Your SILENCE hurts. Don't you get that?
Your not wanting to communicate anymore also hurts.
But I still need you to speak out.
I want to know what's really on your mind.

If you come out in the open irregardless of what you say, only then I can find myself at peace.

Realizations!

When I entered this once new ward assignment in January this year, I was a bit sad. Sad because I will no longer be with my Pedia family which I've learned to love and besides, I just went out from a heavy area with lots of patients then I'd be transferred to an area with more than 200 plus patients. I mean, where's justice in that?

I thought all my negative feelings will just do away after some adjustments. But I was wrong. I felt that my confidence level was down and I was never happy during those times.

Then realizations came in late.
I realized that I spent many times thinking bout those negative thoughts and it just gave me a headache, a heartache, got me irritated and pissed ---which were so unhealthy!

Instead of wasting my time on those stuff, it's time I change the way I think.
Now I am enjoying my job. I tried to make the best out of it. I am now more committed to my job and I am after helping my patients. I do not mind anymore about the environment for as long as I am faithfully and religiously doing the tasks required of me. After all, this is what I've lived for. Becoming an 'angel in the sickroom' is the role I have vowed to do for the rest of my life.

Health Worry!

These days, I am experiencing an intermittent pain in my right flank area. The pain is just tolerable and I thought it's just a pain associated with an upcoming menstruation. However, after my mens, the pain is still confined in there. Perhaps my anxiety became an aggravating factor on the pain that I feel. It persisted for weeks and it was only last week when I consulted a physician. I submitted myself to diagnostic tests such as CBC, Fecalysis, & Urinalysis. Both my urinalysis and my fecalysis got normal results except for my CBC where my WBC is a bit high. I still need to see the doctor to let her see my lab results. Right now, I force fluids in my system. I drink lots of water, many liters of water per day. I didn't eat salty foods too! So far, the pain occurs only a few times compared to what I experienced before. I plan to show my results to the MD on Monday and I hope my 'water therapy' could totally help me to get rid of the pain.

TGIF!

Thank God It's Friday!
Can't really count how many Fridays have gone since that one fateful Friday.
As of now, I feel OKAY compared to those past few Fridays. At least, I am okay and happy. However, it's still undeniable that I still miss the person who stayed silent since Feb 1.

I'm still hoping to regain the friendship we once had. Still I'm hoping it could be revived.
Happy Friday peeps!

Operation Canal Cleanup!

I was in the mood for watering the plants the other day when the sight of a stagnant canal near our house caught my attention. I drew myself near until I could get sight of the garbage in there. I really got pissed knowing that the house help who left us never cared to at least clean it up. With my determination to get rid of Dengue cases in our subdivision, I cleaned it up myself! I was surprised to see some trash thrown in there causing the water to be stagnated. Since it's way hard to pull the trash out because of the cement being encased in the canal, I started to push the trash on the other side so it could be taken out easily. I even lifted that heavy stuff used to cover the canal and oh boy, I felt like lifting a 10 kg-dumbell! I got this sense of fulfillment when I saw the water flowing freely in the canal.

My price for lifting some heavy stuff and cleaning the canal too hard? I have body pains all over my body which is needing a massage right now!
