Rotation and Graduation

well well, good day to all of you my Blog family, i know i have been out of touch for a very long time and i have not been updating my blog, but i must say it is my fault, i apologise. I have not stretched myself enough on my capabilities and potentials, and from now i am determined to stretch myself to the limits no matter how tough or inconviniencing it might be to me, i will do it. One thing I read that made me think so was "most old people only regret what they did not do". so that means almost everything they engaged in, did not cause any regrets for them.. i will enagage myself in more and more things now so i dont or at least minimally have regrets when i am older!! If you have being thinking along this line too, one book i would advice you to read is "BE ALL YOU CAN BE, BY JOHN C. MAXWELL" an excellent motivational book, I am not done reading it but i know i will finish it soon, my goal, my determination.

My clinicals for my school is composed of 2 twelve weeks rotations and i am in the 12th week of the first one and i must say it is challenging, i love the fact that most of the job entails thinking on the spot and analyzing each and every of our daily activities in bits and my job i must say. OK so my rotations have been good and i have seen so many people, worked with so many people, learnt so many things and i have been exposed to so many diagnoses and surgeries.

Most of the people i work with are older people from like age 21 to 97, the youngest i have ever worked with was 9 yrs old and she was in the hospital because she got burnt while trying to prepare french fries, sad ini't but hey she did not die and did not get life threatining burns, so thank God for that.

I have lost some of the patients that i have worked with, when i say lost, as in they died. one of the ones that touched me the most was one old lady that was like 94 or so and she was admitted to the ICU, started getting better and then i started working with her, she was very weak and fraile. I enjoyed working with her because she always smiled and at one point we danced together with our hands while she was seated tho, i enjoyed that session but sad enough she died the next day. so many other stories, i dont have the heart to share.

So my graduation is next week, WHOOOO HOOOO!!!
i am so looking forward to it, i am so excited, it is not even funny. Just some random facts about this graduation.
1: my first ever graduation since high school graduation in 2002
2: my degree is a Masters
3: i am the only boy finishing from the program in the whole state.
4: i love my career choice!!!
5: Most of all, I am totally thankful to God for his mercies, peace and favour he constantly bestows on me. THANK YOU LORD!!

So i know that was a long piece but i wish i was a constant blogger so it wont be this long, *sigh* but from now on, i will try my best. *fingers crossed*

Thank you all for stopping by, you make my typing worthwhile. Gracias.
