First time I forgot to take ECG for my long time patient before I shifted her to Operating room. She will deliver her baby via emergency cesarean section due to failed induction of labor by Prostin tablet. I am really thinking what did I forgot while I was wheeling my patient to OR. When we arrived in OR, boom, I realized that I didn’t taken ECG!!! I’m out of my mind. I’m very nervous that time when anesthesia doctor came to check my patient. She browsed her laboratory reports, and praised me a bit for hooking plain Normal Saline IV Fluid. Primpran and Ranitidine incorporation in IV fluid finished already before I shifted my patient. Good thing, she didn’t look for the ECG, due to patient was indicated for emergency. But still in my mind and heart, I really forgot to take so I must take my consequence, that OVR. So, I confessed to the nurse I am endorsing with and she just said to me that there’s no problem for her. She will just tell the anesthesiologist, if needed they will just take ECG inside OR. But I felt relieved, coz that nurse was not that mad at me. When I came back in my ward, every time the phone rang, I always checked if it’s from OR. Only one time they called but I’m at the bedside with a doctor. That OR staff asking about the vaccination card, not with ECG thing. Thank God. My colleague told this OR nurse that from our head nurse that vaccination card was new and no need for stamp. I confirmed directly to my head nurse that vaccination card, and she said that one new and no need for stamp. I hope they will not really give me an OVR regarding that card because I haven’t done anything wrong. 
While crossing the road on the way to our accomodation, I saw a sunflower planted in the middle of the road. It’s really beautiful and sunflower is one of my fave flower, so me and my colleague picked some flowers. We’re just too happy. #simplejoys


Goodnight, friends!

Always be grateful 🌷

Mixed feelings right now for our new roommate that came in our room this afternoon without any greetings to anyone. What is she? What are we? Normal response of people entering a new environment must have a basic rapport or self-introduction, just like what taught in our school even though she doesn’t like us, and vice versa. I sent a text to our acting housemother if what she can do to all of her things because our in-charge already informed her to only bring her important things. While we’re eating our late-lunch-but-early-dinner meal, she came inside our room and we didn’t welcomed her warmly. We didn’t help her too, on fixing her many and dusty things. I felt really guilty while I’m just resting on my bed while she’s there on the other room alone. I thought that she’s really organizing and cleaning her stuff, but when I went out of my room, it was still the same outside our flat, messy. Huhu. Dearest Lord, teach me how to treat her the way you treat your people with real kindness. I’m sorry if I’m acting this way to her based on what other’s were saying on her back. I was also influenced to dislike her. Oh God, I know this is not a big deal issue. Yet, help us, my roommates and I, to be united and live peacefully with each other. Let your will be done, oh Father if she will be our short or long-term flatmate in room 410. 

Lifting up my worries to Him. 
Forgive me, self.

Love,

Heartbreaking. Depressing. Someone you knew prematurely wreck your fantasy of love. Yet you gave him your full trust, not knowing that risking for love means you must be ready to get hurt in any possible forms. This is not an event for me. My close friend has been struggling a lot in all aspect that I am concerned for her. I really want her to know that I can be here to listen and just listen to her thoughts and feelings even were both far from each other. No distance matters for a heart who’s willing to listen and accept who you are. We all have battles to conquer every single day, and it doesn’t matter if you want to be alone to clear your mind and soul. Yet, it’s very helpful too if you cling on to someone who will care and never judge you in any way. Oh God, I am praying for her to have more strength, patience, and healing. Today was the first video call I had with her since I came here in KSA. Straight after duty, I dialled her on Messenger without hesitation. Luckily, she didn’t deferred my call. We’re both listening and empowering each other. I hope she sincerly appreciate me being there with her in her down moments. I hope she cried it all out today and I pray for her complete self-recovery. 

Goodnight, friends 😌

Always be grateful 🌷

#NoteToSelf πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

A reminder to all of us that we are truly valuable. Let’s just understand the situations and feelings of people around us. Stop overthinking much, self. Yes, I tend to be clingy and snob at the same time. I get sad too, when nobody of my friends or relatives texted/called me all day. Some days, it’s big deal for me when I’m not that busy or I have my down moments that I wanted someone to care what I’m really feeling right now. But hey, He’s just up there waiting and listening to you all time and all day. Cling on with Him, with God the Father, our Friend who we strongly rely on. Breath, and feel His presence. He’s with you, 24/7! 



Thank you Father God. I will guard my heart, set my eyes up to you, and put my hope to you. You will direct my every step for I don’t know what path to take. I have decided to resign here in my current work, vacation then exit for good. I don’t know if they can give me legit certificate of experience for one year, they must give, but according to our hospital head, he will not give for those who will resign with less than three years of serving. Unfair. Nonetheless, I will lift everything to You, my Father. My life, my present, and my future. 

Always be grateful 🌷

She passed the exam! My friend, Cheryl, is now a Nurse Specialist. It was her last chance and attempt to sit on the exam, and she did well. I’m proud of her. Her faith, hardwork, and prayers to God made everything into a success, from impossible to possible. Thank you, Lord God!

From the side of me, a Nurse Technician. I felt a bit smaller than my colleagues. Because it’s technician. Still lacking of clinical experience. But on the other side, I just need to relax and stay positive. This title only matters when applying for a job, but when you’re already in the field it’s very hard to play the role as a nurse whatever your title may be. I will just let this thoughts slip off, I will still run my own race. Don’t ever, ever give up, self. Just like my friend, Cheryl! πŸ’


(Time to celebrate and eaaaaat! Thank you, besh!)




Goodnight, friends!
