< 135 > The Call


It's already 12.30pm when Sir released us.
Today was our first case presentation. No,I didn't present the case,prefer to sit exactly in front of two of them and try to answer all the questions with the little knowledge I have. Well,I found it's easier to grasp points and info through Q&A method than to dip my face into textbooks,digest every single words and by heart,remembering of all them.Tell me,if they all tasted like KFC,I'll reconsider them then =p

We passed through a small room where minor surgery is being done,with lazy eyes but legs were still moving at speedy phase and stomach keep rolling a drum.It sang "feed me,feed me".LOL!Sir stopped us.Again.Earlier,the other Sir called us back and sent us home with an assignment [read:4 topics].So,what's next?

We went into that small room where we saw a woman lying on the bed. She's sobbing continuously,barely able to catch her breath in between. Forget about my stomach-ache,what happen to her?The fact that she's wearing scarf,make me feel even more concern.She had her dress unbuttoned revealing her cut-open chest,some fat tissues in striking yellow and well,blood is like..everywhere!And the surgeon,religiously cleaning up the site.Owh wait,why I can see the fascia pulsated so easily?Something is missing there.Where's the sternum?????

She had a fracture,so they removed it. No,it's not brutal decision to be made particularly when you know that a metastatic growth is having an overshoot there.Put it into an easier term,cancerous cells already spread from her breast to bones.ok,from the bones,blood may have migrated them everywhere!!Sir told us,she came very  very very late to them.That time,it was even worse.And having Sir to say this deprived me even more

"nothing much we can do.she'll die in few months"

Life can be so cruel sometimes.and that's when pessimism strikes and being optimistic is so out of track.[somehow related to my previous unnumbered post-that's part of my life i don't want to remark]and when you cross that path, all you have to do is to keep moving.appreciating every steps.

Anyway,speaking it from a medical and scientific point of view,it has been a very late call to this woman,hopefully not you.Young lady out there,make sure you get yourself checked today,you never know who will be the victim,next.

in remembrance of arwah Cikgu Norizan who returned to Allah,the Omnipotent almost 2months
