Knights at the hospital

Standard

Thursday was an awful day. Long story short: I was in a lot of pain so I called a friend, totally freaking out. Smart girl that she is, she told me to go to my doc. Within the hour, I was at the emergency room trying not to totally freak out and lose it. I did get a shot of morphine, which eased my pain. It also turned me into a blubbering, forgetful fool. My friend will have lots of stories I’m sure 🙂

In my time at the hospital, I met a few knights in shining armor.

Knight #1: I have to say that the resident assigned to me was also one of the most attentive people in the whole hospital. She was also one of THE nicest people I have ever met. She had two interns with her and I hope they learn as much as they can from her because not only was she a medical resident, she was also a compassionate and attentive and empathic resident. I wonder if her attending physicians know how incredibly lucky they are to have her!

Knight # 2 & 3 were the two doctors assigned to me. One was my actual specialist while the other was a specialist called in to help. The assisting specialist (now my current doc) was especially nice and honest and on point. They both looked good in scrubs. Yeah, I know: here I am sick as a dog and I’m talking about doctors looking hot in scrubs. Well, lemme tell you….I was sick, not dead! 😀

Knights #4, 5, 6, 7…: All the people who came to check in on me through the night including nurses, techs and especially the hot, young, Asian doc who was so sweet and smiling and very present with me. Like I said, I was sick, not dead! HAHA 😉

I joke now but in all seriousness, when you’re flat on ur back and need help and are scared by what’s happening, it’s nice to know that there are certain knights to be counted on for every night at the hospital. Here’s to all you doctors, residents, interns, nurses, technicians, assistants and more who are involved in the care of a patient at a hospital. Muchas gracias, merci beaucoup, asante sana, thank you very much!

I decided to stop watching life pass by and join in instead. This year is all about saying "yes" to life, opportunity and ideas thus this blog. Like many people, I've wanted to start a blog, and like many people I chickened out. In fact, this is my second serious attempt. Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. Feel free to leave all sorts of comments, any time and I promise to do my best to reply. Feel free to compliment, complain, criticize, communicate...whatever floats your boat. See you soon :-)

  1. Hey there Mia!

    Thanks for the comments to my blog. I can identify with many of them. Let me tell you that your blog tonight is something I have experienced. I took a trip to the ER twice over the last couple of years. I may have blogged about it on my sister blog, http://www.kissmybaldhead.com
    There are many knights in shining armor that may go unnoticed at the hospital and you are lucky to have run into them. I have many of my own who are simply wonderful! I hope you continue to heal both physically and spiritually. The road may seem long at times, but I know you can go the distance!

    • Hey Independent City Girl, I’m so glad to see you on here.
      It was for future a frightening and nerve-wracking experience. I was glad to get some empathy and compassion n knighthood from medical staff 🙂

      I actually found your sister blog first and immediately sent you an e-mail in your private account coz I felt almost desperate and relieved to see someone who knows a doc I know. If you can e-mail me at my blog email, I would love to ask you a question about a particular doc we have/had in common. I would also SOOOO appreciate your feedback.

      Either way, I look forward to visiting ur sites more and I hope you feel welcome to visit me as often as you would like. It’s nice having you here!

      Keep blogging!
