SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

Assalamualaikum...

Alhamdulillah, segala pujian kepada Allah SWT kerana memberi peluang untuk menulis blog hari ni... dan selawat dan salam buat junjungan Nabi Muhammad pembuka bicara... :)

Arteriovenous Malformation
Semalam kerja petang, that is from 3pm-10pm. Dalam pukul 9pm, there was a case...

19years old, Malay, man came with initial diagnosis of Prolonged Fever. The patient could't talk himself. He was drowsy and really not talking at all. I was quite scared!

What is going on with this young man???

So, called up the father... Upon asking, "Dia demam 2 hari. Batuk selsema. Demam biasa. Maghrib tadi pakcik kejutkan dia, dia bangun, tapi macam tak sedar. Tak boleh cakap." I asked whether had this happened before, he said No. Then, did he had any "nyetok" (sawan), he said No and No history of trauma...

What is going on???

So, I examined him... Called up his name. He woke up but he couldn't talk. He was just making sounds that it sounded like baby talk... So, I tried to ask him if he can lift his hands, his legs... Yup, he could do that... Obeying to my command... But his power of all his limbs, tangan dengan kaki keempat-empatnya, memang reduce power. Dia boleh angkat sahaja, tapi bila kita try resist, dia tak boleh... His reflexes (the thing doctor does when we hit the knee, and suddenlt the knee goes up) were all normal. His pupils were both reactive. GCS of 11/15.

Help me!!!

So, i asked my senior regarding this patient. I couldn't make up what was the diagnosis... So, he examined the patient again... he agreed with my findings... then, he looked at the patient's face. It looked like the face was asymmetrical. His mouth deviated to the left side, loss of the right nasolabial fold, and he couldn't really open his eyes...

So, my senior made the diagnosis that the patient had
LEFT CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT TO RULE OUT ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATION.
It meant, patient had left sided stroke in the brain and maybe there was an abnormal artery-vein in his brain that is causing the problem. Arteriovenous Malformation happened in people when they fetuses... But at the age of teenagers, the risk of it getting bigger and rupture is very high, that what I understood from my senior...

What should we do?

The patient needed an urgent CT-Scan of the brain, because, if the vessel in the brain ruptured and needed surgical intervention, then we had to send the patient to HUSM bcoz there's no neurosurgeon at our hospital... So, I was also called into the CT-Scan room and the radiologist oncall showed me that there was LEFT MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY RUPTURED ANEURYSM. That really made me chilling and shaking... It meant that the patient had a big artery called left middle cerebral artery and ruptured already. That's why he couldn't speak properly...

What should I tell the family?

I told my senior regarding the CT-Scan findings, then he said the patient needed to be send from Yellow Zone to Red Zone and I have to call Medical MO Oncall. So, first I had to tell the family first... his father was already crying in front of me...

"Pakcik, jangan risau sangat. Lepas scan tadi, memang nampak ada pendarahan dalam otak anak pakcik. Tu lah dia tak boleh nak cakap. Sekarang, anak pakcik kena tolak ke Zon Merah untuk pemerhatian yang lebih dekat. Nanti saya akan cakap dengan doktor perubatan. Doktor perubatan tu mungkin akan hantar anak pakcik ke HUSM sebab kat sini, pakar otak takde. Nanti dia akan jumpa dengan anak pakcik. Lepas tu dia akan bagitau perkembangan seterusnya tentang anak pakcik, ok?"

Anak2 Pakcik yang lain ada kat situ cakap diorang faham. Tapi, Pakcik... he was holding back his tears...

It was already 10pm. The people for night shift were already there, and my husband was already waiting for me... But I had to call and let Medical MO know about this patient. So, after a while, Medical MO called and after I told him, I went back.... My husband asked,
"Busy ke?" Then, I started telling my story....He said,
"Kan best duduk A&E? Kes2 yang jarang2 jumpa boleh jumpa kat sini? Abang pun tak pernah jumpa kes macam tu."

I couldn't sleep last night... Thinking, my senior was so good at making the diagnosis... If I was alone, I really didn't know what to do.... Really....

Thanks Allah for this great opputunity to learn!!!!


D'VILLAGE
After work, my husband didn't have his dinner yet and I didn't cook yesterday bcoz I was having diarrhea... So, we went to this famous place near HUSM and ate Nasi Kukus. I was very delicious but I was too tired to eat. But the drink... Fresh Orange Juice was good! :) It reminded me the place where we always went when we were in Melaka... Salam Sayang ke??? Tak ingat dah nama tempat tu. Ala... Yang gelas air jus dia besar macam jag! hehe...

NEARLY 3 MONTHS
Yup... The baby inside me is getting older each day and next Monday, he/she's going to be 3 months old... :) My husband dreamt that we had twin, a girl and a boy... So, he decided that next visit to ONG Clinic, we ought to do another ultrasound scan to reconfirm it again... hehe.

Well, actually when my sister-in-law was pregnant, when she went to do the 1st ultrasound scan, my brother saw another sac and he asked the doctor what was that... The doctor couldn't tell him. When they did another scan few months later, they saw there were 2 heart beating... hehe...

You never know, since Ayah said, "Ayah ingat semua keturunan Ayah akan dapat twin." hehe

Night shift tonight and tomorrow night... Takut.... :( Doa sokmo...

WHAT SHOULD I STORY TODAY?

Assalamualaikum...

Tetiap hari ada je masa nak tulis blog. Sampai dah takde cerita nak cerita dah pun! Suami el cakap, cerita pasal A&E dengan baby ajelah... hehe.

BASH
I just finished talking to my friend at Shah Alam, asking how was my other friend, Bash doing. Yesterday, she underwent probably a thoracotomy to remove her lung abscess... She was well all this while and suddenly had a pricking nature of pain over her right shoulder. When she went to seek for treatment, the doctor told her that she was anemic and had high platelets.. Some infections was going on... Then, they did further investigation. Chest X Ray showed most of her right lung was hyperdense??? So, they decided for the op yesterday. My fren tried to call me before the op, but I was tired to answer the phone... Sorry...

But Alhamdulillah, the op went well, and currently she's in the ICU for close observation. There's tube draining from her right lung... I hope she'll recover soon. Sorry for not being there my dearest friend, but you are always in my du'a...



RITA's STORY
Thank's Aisya for coming by... :) Well, today I got the chance to read your Puteri Di Hati. It was really nice to read your story... Maybe this was the story that you had written long time ago and wanted me to publish at my other blog?? hmmph??? Anyways, it was a very good touching story indeed... I'm not sure how will I face it if I were you... But Alhamdulillah, finally Fatimah Yasmin is there to cheer you up every single day of your life... :)

MY TWIN
Tadi chat dengan My Twin... hehe. Dia panggil kita Mak Buyung To Be!!! Ahaks... Pasni dapat tengok "el the gemuk". hehehe

"Little Khalifah"
My chinese friend sms me and asked "Let me know when the patters of the little khalifah is nearby..." :) I was quite shocked when I receive that sms....from a Chinese... :) I hope and pray may Allah guide him to convert to Islam one day... :)

UNSTABLE HEART

Assalamualaikum...

Earlier today, I didn't feel good at all... Well, this morning, my specialist made his round at the A&E zones... I was in yellow zone. He doesn't like the A&E to be filled up with patients. As early as possible, we have to discharge the patient or admit them to the ward. I was so scared when he was around yesterday...

Anyways, he asked me about one of the patients that I clerked. I didn't fully clerked the patient. He was upset... but the good point was he took the time to teach me... Memang rasa malu sangat2, bodoh sangat2, sedih sangat2... :( Dah lah takut bila dia soal tak dapat jawab. But we finally came to the same diagnosis... Alhamdulillah. He stressed on the assessment of the patient...

Since we didn't have many patient, he asked me to present the other case that I clerked. My feelings were the same like when I failed the last time... Sedih sangat2... Tak pandai2, walaupun dah repeat! Sedih rasanya, Allah saja yang tau... Tapi syukur sangat, specialist tu sabar ajar dan nasihat. Dia cakap, "You are a MO now, not a HO. You are alone now." :( He thought me well... Alhamdulillah. Thank you Allah... Memang rasa sedih, tapi at the same time, as I wrote in my previous posting.. Mungkin Allah sengaja nak tunjuk kat specialist tu yang banyak benda yang kita tak tau... so dia pun ajar lah... :) Allah knows me best!!!

I was sad again when I came home and my husband not around for me to pour out my sadness... So, what did I do??? *Uwaaaaa* after my Maghrib prayer... I cried with my baby... Biarlah cerita tu hanya Baby Apple yang tau citer... Then, chat with Dr. Nani... Sambil2 baca entry masa fail exam hari tuh....

*Uwaaaa* again... try reading it at My Old Story... Mesti korang pun tangkap syahdu.. ;)

Oklah... Tak baik sedih2. Nanti baby pun sedih... :)



May Allah cherish me and my baby always... Ameen....

TOCHE TOCHE

Assalamualaikum...

THANK YOU
Toche Toche...
Terima kasih deh!
Sudi demo maghi baco gapo ambo dok nulih... Timo kasih banyok laaa...
Bayu Pagi, baiti, semek, Syahlisa, My Twin, Kak Wan, Ana... ;)

BANYAK CERITA
Memang pun la ni ada masa nak blogging, that's why semangat nak menulis blog. Nanti boleh la "baby ummi" baca bila dia dah besar. Ummi dia suka tulis blog... My husband pun masa kawin hari tu cakap, "Suka sangat tulis blog?" hehe. Nasib dia tak halang kita menulis je... ;) Yelah, bercinta selepas kawin, mana nak kenal sangat hati budi masing2... hehe...

A&E
Pening palo ni, ngantuk. Shift pagi hari ni. Tak berapa banyak kes. Cumanya, sekarang wad A&E ditutup. Jadinya, kebanyakan patient akan dihantar ke wad atau balik ke rumah. Bos A&E particular sikit. Tak boleh tengok ramai patient terbaring atas stretcher. Yelah, patient keep on coming, so terpaksa la see, examine, treat and let go... Tapi kena tulis waktu sekarang sebabnya ada sorang lagi nak guna computer ni malam nanti... hehe

DEMAM BLOGSKIN BARU
Terbaca kat blog Raiyan, baiti tulis, "Demam blogskin baru ke sekarang ni?" hehe. Rasanya macam betul je... ;) Actually kita tukar new blogskin sebabnya that day rasa down giler2. Lepas tu tengok, belek2 Missapple's Corner for motivation... Memang boleh jadi blog motivation la blog lama tu... Masa tu memang sedih sokmo. Air mata, daun gugur sokmo sebab jadi missapple. Tapi, at the same time there were so many lifting thoughts in the blog.. :) Terlalu banyak yang dapat dipelajari dari pengalaman, samada pahit atau manis... Yang penting, ingat semua ujian tersebut datangnya dari Allah SWT dan pastinya kita mampu untuk menghadapinya... ;) Syukur zaman "missapple" sudah pun berlalu... Kini zaman Mrs. Apple with Mr. Apple and Baby Apple. hehe

OUR FIRST BABY

Assalamualaikum...

To Mar & Ana... here's the good news... ;)

Alhamdulillah, yesterday went for booking antenatal checkup at ONG Clinic at our hospital. Went there with my husband since he knows most of the people around here... So, he asked help from his senior at ONG to have our 1st scan... (this is the test that I've been waiting for.. ;) )

We are very grateful to see the baby eventhoug it was in "black and white"... Comel! ;) To see the heart beat... SubhanaLlah. Tak puas tengok... ;)

Singleton baby, corresponded to my date, and already 30cm long.. ;) No more questions of twins... hehe. InsyaAllah due date 18 June 2007.

Sms my family that I did the scan.
Mak: "Let the birthdate be same as A2."(A kuasa 2 stands for Afdhol and Arsyad, my twin nephews. Their birthdate was 16 June 2006.)
My husband said that,
"Nanti Mak kena sediakan 3 birthday gifts untuk semua cucu Mak."
She then replied,
"Takpe. Hadiah untuk A2, the new baby. Hadiah baby of Solahuda, A2."

Ayah called me and reconfirm whether it's singleton or twins. hehe. He joked,
"Ayah ingat semua keturunan Ayah akan dapat twins... " hehe. Sabar jelah Ayah!

Abgalong: Yey! Another boy!
:p Adik ipar abgalong cakap, baby girl kut... :)

To Our First Baby
Ummi and Abah are very happy to have you.. soon, insyaAllah. May you grow healthy and complete physically till we get to see you next year on 18th June 2007. May you and me have good health and no problems occur during the pregnancy, labour and when you have already been delivered. May Allah protect us both and may Allah calm your Abah... coz the person who will be very "runsing" during this period will be your Abah... Ameen...

Scan picture, my husband ckp dia nak scan. Kalau ada kita tunjuk la... :)

CERITA HARI INI

Assalamualaikum,

DEMAM
Hmm, nampaknya suami isteri kat rumah Kuarters B 7-3 ni masih lagi demam. Syukur semalam dapat 1 hari rehat sama2 di rumah. Since the night before I was night shift, I couldn't open my eyes yesterday's morning. Tapi hati ni memang nak pergi pasar sebab dah takde barang nak masak kat rumah. Initial days in A & E, I was so lazy to cook. My husband even told me not to cook... Now, since I can adjust my time, insyaAllah will be able to cook myself. :) Suamiku cakap dia takde selera nak makan sangat... sebab dia demam tapi nampak dia makan sotong goreng tu berselera jugak... hehe

2nd NIGHT SHIFT
Alhamdulillah, syukur the night shift went smoothly. I slept for 1 1/2 hours, that's why the next morning I just can't open my eyes... There was another case of an ant went inside the ear... (Wonder why the small bugs like to enter the ear???) Other cases... yang biasa2.. Kebanyakannya Acute Gastroenteritis (AGE) because of food poisoning.

Kes yang luar biasa... 2 pesakit psykiatri... :) Memang menakutkan.

1st patient, 19 years old lady. When she entered the Green Zone room, she was staring at me and then, when I looked at my watch to write down the time, she stood up and tried to take my watch using her handcuffed hands... Subhanallah, masa tu takut sangat... I called the policeman to calm her down because I needed to write few papers before admitting her to the ward...

2nd patient, an old man, wearing a cap and holding a cigarrette. He was not handcuffed but he was shouting when he talked. I was so scared. He really shouted and blow my ears. He was boasting around telling that he knew the Director Hospital and Tun Dr Mahathir... Maniac patients. Eee... Seram sangat!!!

Kesian, tapi kadang2 kelakar jugak. Alhamdulillah, I'm getting used to A & E shifts and like to be working there... :)

RINDU
My husband kept on mentioning "ATOK's" name. Atok is my grandfather on my mother's side. He's staying alone at Port Dickson after my Nenek passed away last year. My husband loves to chat with Atok. He knows how to pleasure and charm old people. That's why he's a good doctor.. ;) Memang seronok tengok Atok borak dengan suamiku. Tak habis bercerita. Tak habis gelak. hehe. Yelah, siapa je yang larat nak cakap dengan Atok yang banyak cakap. Nasibla ada cucu menantu laki sorang yang rajin nak layan Atok dia... ;-) Thanks Abang...

This morning, Mak called. My husband's oncall today. Mak said that my hubby sms to her telling her that we both having fever. Abang rindu kat Atok, Mak Ayah ke??? Well, we planned already maybe 1st December we'll be going back to Atok's house.. And maybe on the 2nd, we'll meet Mak Ayah at Atok's house... Mak pesan, "Plan betul2.. " :)

"Kalau dah rindu tu, jangan rindu aje. Balik la sini..." Mak cakap... ;)
Nak balik la ni... ;)

Wokes... Setakat ini dulu. Takde mood nak makan... Kena balik rumah Ma & Wey kat Pasir Pekan (my in laws). Tak leh duk sorang2... ;)

MY 1ST NIGHT SHIFT

Assalamualaikum...

SUAMI DEMAM, BINI PUN DEMAM
Yupp... I can't believe it myself... Suddenly, last night during Maghrib, I felt my body aching and warm... Was at my in laws's house because my father-in-law was not well yesterday. My husband had fever ad had to help my father-in-law at the same time. While he was with his father, I felt feverish... Chilling away.... (maybe I was so scared to go to hospital for night shift??? hehe) But I still went to work last night...

NIGHT SHIFT
Alhamdulillah, patients who came yesterday to the yellow and green zones were manageable. Actually in A & E, we have 3 zones... RED ZONE for severe patients and need closer observation... YELLOW ZONE for less severe patients and need to be observed for few hours and given few medications... GREEN ZONE for quite well patients and can be discharged home after we give medications...

Few of the cases I saw yesterday,
1. Foreign body inside the ear
A young lady came screaming away in the yellow zone for pain in the ear. There was a small bug flied into her ear while she was watching TV. I examined the ear, there was a BUG skeleton that I can see. Since I'm not sure what was the bug's name... But the mother kept on saying, "Ibu masuk, Hok ibu masuk." I didn't understand at all what was the "Ibu". When I asked again, she kept on saying "Ibu." (This is the usual fenomenan here in HKB... I don't understand what were they saying sometimes... hehe.)

Anyways, one of the MA helped me out. He said he will try to remove it. Alhamdulillah, he removed it... and the A & E Yellow zone was quiet suddenly... ;) I saw the bug out, it was about 1 cm with 4 legs... still not sure what's the name of the bug... When I asked my husband, he said probably "kabung." Macam2...

2. Unstable Angina
An old lady came with pain over the upper abdomen with vomiting. She had multiple problems before. When we did ECG, to show any abnormalities in the heart, it showed some abnormalities. I was not sure what was the changes in the ECG. So, showed to my senior MO. She said patient has Unstable Angina. We had to transfer patient to Red Zone. Cuak jugak masa tu... But, called Medical MO, and he came and review patient there and treat the patient by himself. I had to settle with the patients keep on coming in the Yellow Zone and Green Zone.

Overall, I think last night shift was quite ok, manageable... Alhamdulillah. My senior MO let me slept from 5am to 7:30am. Syukur Alhamdulillah... It was very cold in A & E. Have to bring sweater tonight... My Senior MO was clever to wear thick clothes with had gloves!!! :) I hope I can handle all the cases which come to A & E tonight. Ameen.. May Allah make it easy for me... Ameen....

MACAM MANA BOLEH KAWIN?
Popular lagi soalan ni... ;)
Abang pulak jawab la.. hehe

SORI... CAN'T FIND ANOTHER BLOGSKIN FOR YOU

Assalamualaikum...

DEMAM
Alhamdulillah, suamiku demam tak teruk mana.. Syukur la. Walaupun pada mulanya risau jugak sebab badan dia panas... Tapi lepas makan nasi, makan ubat, demamnya kebah. Bila malam, sekejap sejuk, sekejap berpeluh. Dia terlalu penat dengan oncall dia malam semalam. Caesar dari siang sampai ke malam hingga ke esok paginya... By the way, suamiku di bahagian bius/anaest...

SYIF MALAM
Hari ni, seharian tak kerja, tapi kerjaku bermula 10 malam ni... Kalai pertama syif malam. Takut memang ada sebabnya masih lagi tak pandai dengan kes2 di A&E. Selalu bertanya dengan kawan2 yang lebih senior. Syif malam, hanya 2 orang yang akan bekerja. Tak tau lah macam mana dengan tak pandai nye lagi ni... Tawakkal... Doakan kita eh?......

SURIRUMAH
Sejak kerja syif ni, ada masa, ada peluang jadi surirumah. Pada awal2 kerja di A&E, takde mood nak kemas rumah, masak2... Tapi bila dah biasa sekarang, pandai adjust masa, sekarang adalah peluang kemas rumah dan hal2 yang berkaitan dengan rumah.. Dapatlah jadi surirumah. Mana ada peluang macam ni dulu2... ;) Alhamdulillah. Sepatutnya jadi lebih bersyukur dengan kurnian yang telah diberikanNya selama ni... Alhamdulillah...

BLOGSKIN
Well, my husband wants to find a blogskin for himself. Hmmm... He has a particular blogskin that he wants... I'm not good understanding all the coding. My current blogskin, thanks to the template which I used only 2-3 hours to readjust my blog... If I use another skin, maybe I'm unable to do it in 2-3 hours... maybe more hours...
Sori ye Abang... Abang pemilih... Susah nak cari. Dah cari dah, tak jumpa2 lagi... :D

However by just following Isaini's instructions in the blogskin, I'm able to make this blogskin possible not impossible... :)

RASA NAK DEMAM
Hmmm, dengar dalam telefon, suamiku demam. Dia tak pernah sakit sejak kawin. Cemana ye? Selalunya bila kita demam, dia selalu runsing. Buatkan susu, bagi makan ubat... Memang seorang doktor yang baik... :D Tapi, bini dia cemana ye??? Harapnya boleh buat yang terbaik untuk suamiku dan biarlah dia cepat pulih... Ameen.

SORANG INDIA, SORANG KL
Soalan macam mana boleh kawin dengan suamiku masih lagi tak berakhir sampai sekarang walaupun kami dah berkahwin selama 5 bulan lebih... hehe. Cemana sorang blaja kat India, sorang blaja kat KL boleh berkenalan dan kawin? Kenal kat mana??? hehe.

Jodoh, itulah yang mempertemukan kami berdua... :)

Oklah, setakat ini dulu... buat Bayu Pagi, thanks for coming over... What's your blog address ye??? ;)

Kisah Ngeri
Semalam kami dapat tahu, suami isteri yang baru kawin 5 bulan gitu... Tiba2, nampaknya si suami berdating dengan pompuan bertudung tapi seksi. Hmmm, isterinya pun tak menjaga sangat batas2an antara dia dengan lelaki... Hmm, sama2 rosak... Ngeri jugak dengar citer macam tu. Baru 5 bulan kawin... :(

Semuga Allah jauhkan perkara tersebut dari kalangan kita semua dan semuga Allah pelihara hubungan kita antara suami isteri, sahabat handai dari muslihat syaitan... Ameen....

WHY DO WE READ QUR'AN WHEN WE DON'T UNDERSTAND EVEN A SINGLE?

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Qur'an.

His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.

One day the grandson asked,
"Grandpa, I try to read the Qur'an just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Qur'an do?"

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied,
"Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water."

The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house.

The grandfather laughed and said,
"You'll have to move a little faster next time," and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home.

Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead. The old man said,
"I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house.

The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty.

Out of breath, he said,
"See Grandpa, it's useless!"
"So you think it is useless?"
The old man said, "Look at the basket."

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the
basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket
and was now clean, inside and out.

"Son, that's what happens when you read the Qur'an. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our lives."

Assalamualaikum...

15 SYAWAL 1427
Salam Aidilfitri buat semua... Maaflah sebab tak berkesempatan untuk menulis blog mengucapkan selamat berpuasa... tau2, hari ni dah cukup 15 Syawal!! :)

Harapnya masih tak terlambat untuk kita mohon maaf atas segala tersalah kata bahasa dalam blog ni selama berada di alam maya sejak tahun 2004??? Lama jugak tu... :) Apa2pun, terlalu banyak pengalaman pahit pada awal blogging dan sekiranya ada yang tersisa-sisa terasa, maafkan kita. Bukan sengaja, tapi itulah aturan hidup kita yang telah ditetapkan olehNya... Manusia tak lari dari kelemahan... dan ujian dariNya pasti ada hikmah di sebaliknya... InsyaAllah...

Banyak pulak nak berceloteh.... hehehe

MAWADDAH WA RAHMAH
Alhamdulillah, pada awal Ramadhan, kami telah masuk ke rumah kuarters kami bersebelahan dengan Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II, Kota Bharu... Sebenarnya dah lama dapat rumah tapi, selepas sebulan baru kami berpeluang untuk menetap secara rasmi di sini...

Raya baru ni, adik2, mak ayah, makcik dan tok dari Besut datang makan nasi ayam "Huda masak!" Tukang komen cakap, OKlah... Cuma ayam keras sikit.. Tu co-chef yang masak. Jangan komen lebih2. hehe. Adik cakap dia pun nak kerja dengan kerajaan kalau dapat rumah besar macam rumah kita... 4 bilik, 3 toilets, 2 lounges, 1 kitchen, 1 small coridor for the laundry... :D Besar tak rumah kita??? Kalau tak caya, kena datang tengok sendiri...

Tapi yang tak best bila rumah besar ni, duduk 2 orang je... Macam malam ni, suami kita oncall, so, tinggal sorang2, memang tak seronok... Berdepan dengan komputer la! hehe

Apa2pun, Alhamdulillah dapat tinggal di rumah kuarters ni.. Tingkat 6 ye!!! :D

FINISHED HOUSEMANSHIP
Yup! Alhamdulillah, 2nd of November, I've finished being a houseman for 12 months... Now, being a junior medical officer at A & E (Acute and Emergency). Baru hari ke-2. Tiap2 hari doa and solat hajat muga dipermudahkan kerja kat situ sebabnya, dah lama tinggal medical, banyak tak ingat... Sedih jugak! Tapi hopefully I can polish back my knowledge and at the same time start reading the books... Banyak kena belajar...

Thanks to all in Paeds! Everybody was nice there and I really enjoyed being there in Paeds... I've learnt neonatal resuscitation, doing intubation, exchange transfusion, taking babies blood and management in babies and children. Alhamdulillah... Well, reading through My Twin's blog, she did mention someday who knows maybe she'll be doing paeds?? hehe. Well, same phrase for me also... Someday... InsyaAllah one day! ;)

May Allah ease my work and stay at A & E... May Allah help me to help every patients who's very ill and needs special attention... May I become a good doctor... Ameen... Doakan!

ANOTHER GOOD NEWS...
InsyaAllah, will let you guys know later... ;)

Setakat ini dulu celoteh Mrs. Apple.. :) Boring Mr. Apple tak ada kat rumah. hehe

Thanks to
bluehikari, bint al-huda, kak ida, lil sis, my twin, kak wan... for boostering me up to update my blog! :D

Ok lah, gotta go. Mr Apple dah call suruh tido sebab esok kerja syif pagi... Wokes...
