I had one hell of an ON CALL last nite..
very tiring... very stressful...
The worst ON call so far at the ortho department
but still nothing compared to ON call at the OnG...
Today.. it started very gloomy
Was in a very bad mood
Felt like kicking everyone..
Yes, luckily I didnt
U know.. there are days u felt like just wanna sit and doing nothing
I wish I could just sit n doing nothing this morning
But then ,
something special happened
Got a call from a staff nurse from the VIP ward.
At first I thought there is a new case at the ward..
I picked up the phone with a very lazy voice...
then when she mentioned my ex-patient left " a gift " for me..
It quickly turned my mood upside down..
I was so happy!
For the 1st time in my life as a doctor I got a gift from a patient.
Well.. it's not the gift that matter..
it's the thought that count
Regardless what inside the plastic wrapper..
It changed my sad face into smiley face...
Not that I'm demanding gift from everyone..
It just that.. it felt good when other really appreciate ur work
Even two simple words " thank you " from my patient
- would really made my day..
Nevertheless.. I'm so happy today...
In a very good mood
Hope for a better day tomorrow
