DISCLAIMER LANG

Hindi ko alam kung paano nangyari, pero ang daming posts na naglalabasan sa multiply ko na hindi ko alam kung bakit nag-aappear dun. Walang bagong blog (pero meron akong bagong site na wala pang laman. http://www.wuzzupdoc.com), kumakain naman po ako, at happy naman po ako kahit na ang ganda ng sweldo namin dito sa hospital.

Paki-disregard po yung mga ibang posts.

Thank you.

Fotoblogposting galore part II... at TB-TB-han

Birthday ng nanay ko nung isang araw. Ang saya-saya. Nakaka-miss talaga ang family, especially kapag weekends ka lang umuuwi. Kasama ko si Daniel sa piktyur, ang pamangkin kong utak power-ranger. Wag niyo na akong pansinin diyan, sige na, mukha na akong na-i-stroke. Pag-umuuwi ako, sinisipa-sipa ako nito at ng kapatid niyang si David... ako daw yung halimaw na kalaban ng power ranger. haay naku. mga bata talaga ngayon.

Nung November first week, nagkaroon ako ng mini-bakasyon. Kaya nagpunta ako sa Lake Caliraya, Laguna kasama ang mga church mates ko. Ayun. Na-born again ulit ako. Haaay.

Ayan. Emo shot ng isa sa kambal. hehe. natuwa lang ako kaya pinost ko.
----

From duty me ngayon. Mabait ang Diyos, hindi ako napagod masyado kagabi.

Pero...

meron akong na-transfer na patient by ambulance.... may multiple-drug resistant tuberculosis na pasyente na may lupus... at may nana sa atay.

katakot. sobrang tatlong patong ng mask (N95) ang suot ko. Halos hindi na ako makahinga, at halos napango na ang ilong ko sa mask. Pero nahiya din ako sa pasyente kasi parang obvious na talagang nilalayuan siya ng medical staff.

Sana gumaling siya. At sana walang mahawa sa kanya.

Laki talagang prublema sa Pilipinas ang tuberculosis. Top 9 ang Pilipinas sa mga bansang namu-mroblema sa TB, sabi sa report ng WHO Global TB Report 2006. Tinatayang 78 na Pilipino ang namamatay dito araw-araw. Siguro nahihirapan tayo sa TB kasi likas sa Pilipino ang maging pasaway. Disiplina ang kailangan para magamot ang TB (6 na buwan na gamutan, usually mga 3-4 tablets sa isang inuman.)

May social stigma din kasi ang TB, parang ketong. Nilalayuan ng mga tao ang mga TB patients. Sa susunod na sumakay ka sa jeep, magmasid-masid sa mga taong ubo ng ubo. Baka may TB yun.

Dito sa ospital, katakut-takot ang TB patients na nakikita namin! Delikado talaga maging duktor. Kaya nga gusto ko nang magpa-Xray ulit. Para lang ma-check. Kasi mahirap nang magkasakit. (Pero 2 weeks din yun na sick leave, hehe)

KAMUSTA NAMAN?

Ayan.
ang tagal ko nang hindi nag-blog ulit. kamusta naman?


As usual, forever na akong nagtatangkang tumaba. Eto ngayon ang uso... (tin gnan ang larawan). Hindi ako binabayaran para i-endorse to ha. Mga 2 weeks ko pa lang siya naiinom... wala pa masyadong effect sa itsura ko, pero nag-gain ako ng mga 1Kg. Sana lang tumuloy-tuloy, para di na me payat. Nung una kong ininom to, sobrang nag LBM ako. Di ata sanay katawan ko sa maraming protina e. 8x pare. kaya di me nakapasok sa hospital kinabukasan. pero unti-unti namang naging payapa ang gera sa loob, at nato-tolerate ko na siya. So far, still far. hehe. Meron akong kinuntsaba na isa pa para uminom nito, unahan kaming tumaba. (laki ng problema namin nu? Yung iba nga nagpapapayat eh, kami nagpapataba.)

Kakatapos lang ng oral examinations namin. Nakakatakot siya, feeling ko nag-revalida na naman ako. Ang mga binigay na kaso? Dissecting aorta, diabetic ketoacidosis, acue pancreatitis, tsaka cor pulmonale. (i-google nyo na lang kung tunog greek). At bilang celebration sa pagkatapos nito, kumain kami ng batchmates ko sa The PIT. First time namin lahat mag-lunch ng sabay-sabay kahit na 11 months na halos kami magkasama. hehe. Wala namang nag-quit sa amin, kahit halos lahat kami eh na-feel na gustong mag-quit. Hopefully, sana lahat kami ma-promote next year. sana.

picture namin ni mommy weng sa Congo Grille. galeng no? mga duktor yang mga nakikita niyong yan. hehe

cute cute ng kambal di ba? Lumalaki na sila ngayon. kamukha ng nanay nila. Sa pasko, anu kaya pwedeng ipasuot sa mga 'to? hehe.

View sa sidecar ni manong. bumaha na naman kasi sa USTe, kaya't kelangan kong mag-sidecar papuntang train station. Tinaga ako sa singil na 40 pesos pero binigyan ko ng singkwenta. At kasama ang reseta para hindi siya magka-leptospirosis.

Sori, mahirap mag-blog ngayon. kaya fotoblog muna, hehe.
haaaaay. Sana pasko na.

NOMIMONO WA IKAGA?

Meron akong bagong adiksyon :


Nomimono!!

Si Paula kasi e, pina-inom pa ako ng peach flavored aloe jelly nung nasa singapore kami... kaya ayun, na-adik na me.

Eto ang best substitute : nomimono with aloe.

Kanina bumili ako.

May curious na ale.. sabi niya, "anu yan, shampoo?"

Nyek!

Hindi mo naman masisisi. Eh talagang pang-shampoo lang naman ang alam natin sa aloe vera e.

In a study performed by the Department of Physiology at the University of Texas Health Science Center, lab rats were given a 10% greater life span by ingesting Aloe. The animals showed lowered occurrences of various diseases including arterial thrombosis and leukemia. In addition, no adverse side effects were found in the rats on a diet that included Aloe.

Useful sana siya kung ikaw ay isang daga. hehe.

Gusto ko yung fusion na strawberry tsaka mango. Hmmm....

Friends, pag napunta kayo sa UNIBERSIDAD KONG MAHAL, inuman tayo ng nomimono.

Kamusta naman?

Iyan ang isa sa mga tanong na pilit kong sinasagot ngayon.

Panu ba naman, sa dinadami-dami ng mga nangyayari sa buhay-buhay ngayon, malaking bagay na ang huminto ng sandali at magsabi ng "Kamusta naman ako?".

Kelangan pa bang tanungin 'yan, eh alam ko naman kung anung nangyayari sa buhay ko??

O alam ko nga ba?

Sa mga pasyente, madalas tanungin ang "Kamusta ka naman?".
Madali lang ang karaniwan nilang sinasagot:"Ok naman po, doc."
Tapos hihirit ako ng "Eh bakit ka andito kung ok ka?", sabay ngiti. Ngiting aso. hehe.
Ayun, ngingiti na rin yung pasyente at sasabihin na yung problema niya.

Masakit ang tiyan.
Hindi matae.
Nahihilo
Nahihirapan huminga.
Kelangan ng medical certificate.
Papa-check ng BP.
Manghihingi ng libreng multivitamins.
Walang gana kumain.
Nilalagnat.
Lumalabo ang paningin.
Nangangayayat.
Mahapdi umihi.
Masakit ang lalamunan.
May "tulo".
Baka daw may "dengue".

Pag-duktor ka, sari-sari ang haharapin mong prublema. Problema din ng duktor ang prublema ng iba. Mga pakialamerong nagmamagaling. At binabayaran para mangialam ng buhay ng may buhay.

Kaya siguro mahirap sagutin ang tanung na 'yan kung ibaling ko naman siya sa sarili ko.

Eh kamusta na nga ba ako?

Pagod.
Puyat.
Payat.
Gutom.
Nangangarap ng Pasko.
Madaming kelangang gawin.
Inaantok.
Gustong umuwi sa bahay.
Na-j-jingle.

Yan siguro yung mga unang sagot na papasok sa isipan ko ngayon. Tanungin mo ako ulit, at mas malalim na ang maisasagot ko:

Naghahanap ng "kaliwanagan" sa mga bagay-bagay na nangyayari.
Nag-iisip kung may kulang pang nagawa sa pasyente.
Nagtataka sa plano ng Diyos para sa akin.

*buntong hininga*

'Housewives' Filipino joke draws ire

mula sa YAHOO! NEWS:

LOS ANGELES - A scene in TV's "Desperate Housewives" that used Philippine
medical education for a punchline prompted angry calls from viewers, an online petition demanding an apology and criticism from Philippine officials.

In the season premiere that aired Sunday on ABC, Teri Hatcher's character, Susan, goes in for a medical checkup and is shocked when the doctor suggests she may be going through menopause.

"Listen, Susan, I know for a lot of women the word `menopause'" has negative connotations. You hear `aging,' `brittle bones,' `loss of sexual desire,'" the gynecologist tells her.

"OK, before we go any further, can I check these diplomas? Just to make sure they aren't, like, from some med school in the Philippines?" Susan fires back.

Viewers called the network to complain but the number of callers wasn't available, an ABC spokesman said Wednesday. As of Wednesday evening, more than 30,000 names were attached to an online petition seeking a network apology.

"A statement that devalues Filipinos in healthcare is extremely unfounded, considering the overwhelming presence of Filipinos and Filipino Americans in the
medical field," the petition read in part.

ABC, owned by The Walt Disney Co., responded with a statement Wednesday. ABC said it was considering editing the episode.

"The producers of `Desperate Housewives' and ABC Studios offer our sincere apologies for any offense caused by the brief reference in the season premiere. There was no intent to disparage the integrity of any aspect of the medical community in the Philippines," the statement said.

"As leaders in broadcast diversity, we are committed to presenting sensitive and respectful images of all communities featured in our programs," it concluded.

The TV episode even became an international incident, with reports on it topping
Philippine news shows and drawing newspaper headlines as officials there registered their displeasure. Filipinos could judge the scene for themselves when it was posted on YouTube.

In Manila, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said he was writing the producers of the show to seek an apology and note the country's "vehement protest." Senior cabinet member Eduardo Ermita told reporters that an apology should be sought "on behalf of our Filipino professionals."

Kevin Nadal, 29, a Filipino-American college lecturer who lives in New York, posted the online petition calling ABC to task for the scene.

"I had to rewind it over and over again to make sure I heard it right," Nadal said in an interview Wednesday. He watched the episode online after hearing about it from a friend.

"I was immediately offended and, really, just hurt. These days, people are supposed to be more sensitive or more aware of what's considered appropriate," he said, adding that he was hearing from people worldwide who were distressed by the scene. He appreciated ABC's apology, he said, but said he also wanted to see the dialogue removed from future airings and DVDs.

Nadal also suggested that the show's producers and ABC executives could make a more substantial gesture than an apology, through scholarships or donations for Filipino and Filipino-Americans and community groups.

Filipinos and other minorities also should be depicted on TV as "prominent,positive role models," Nadal said.

Filipino Doctors Denigrated on ABC's Desperate Housewives

Na-email lang sa akin :

I heard through the grapevine about a remark made on an episode of"Desperate Housewives" last night. The scene entailed Teri Hatcher's character (Susan) at a hospital, being told by her gynecologist thatshe might be hitting
menopause. Susan replied, "Can I just check those diplomas because I just want to
make sure that they are not from some med school in the Philippines." If you go to abc.com, you watch thefull episode and witness the scene at about 18:50 minutes into the episode.


This type of derogatory remark is not only unnecessary and hurtful, but is also unfounded, considering the presence of Filipinos and Filipino Americans in the health care industry. Filipinos are the second largest immigrant population in the United States, with many entering the U.S. and passing their U.S. licensing boards as doctors,nurses, and medical technicians. In fact, the Philippines produces more U.S. nurses than any other country in the world. So, to belittle the education, experience, or value of Filipino Americans in health care is disrespectful and plain and simply ignorant.

Ang tindi naman nyan. Considering na mga pinoy doctors ang nangingibabaw sa US.
Hay naku. :-(
