This is not goodbye…

“because life is a gift, we should cherish it, love it and never take it for granted…Many people are trying their best to survive but left with no choice to say goodbye – Super Anj “


As what I have told you in my last blog… last 26th was a bipolar night for me… one of the reasons that me and my mom had a lil argument was because I forced her to permit me to be in a wake of Daddy ( one of my fave patients) Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to survive his illness… but I know he’s happy now and not in distress.. I remember before, he always told me that he’s very tired and he wanted to rest forever…. He even cracked jokes at me telling me.. “GOODBYE!”

The time I heard the news that he died last 24th, 11pm… I was very sad at the same time those memories we had together were flashing… Daddy wherever you are right now, remember that I care for you and you will forever be missed by your angels…. ❤ May your soul rest in peace 🙂

I glanced at the wall clock as I finish off my breakfast with the last sip of coffee at 5:10 am. I arrived 15 minutes before the devotional prayer had started. After that, I warmed up and whispered to myself, “I can do this” as I get ready to face anything that may happen within my 8-hour duty shift. I grabbed the assignment notebook first and tried to read through my assigned buddy and patient’s names. I was surprised to know that instead of having my duty in the medical ward, I was assigned to the ICU, perhaps. tadaa!

The ICU is where seriously sick persons are admitted and are cared for by specially trained nurses. They need a higher level of care compared to those patients admitted in wards. They should be monitored intensively and are closely monitored. Even though the ratio of patients and nurses is 1:1, some still consider it stressful being an ICU nurse. Since nurses are assigned to one patient each, each is expected to render comprehensive care to the clientele. Vital signs and GCS monitoring is needed every 15minutes, measuring the urine output every hour too is required, due meds should be given on time, etc.
My 8-hour shift is now over. I feel fulfilled to know that today, I learned many things about ICU and about my patient’s case.

Moral Lesson: One never knows what will come through the door next.

I can finally say that my life was worth the struggle

Posted in MY RANDOM THOUGHTS with tags , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2013 by nursemihoko

because when I looked back on what I’ve lost, I realized that what I have now is way better…

I even cried a river of tears before but the blessings pour down afterwards. The ocean of happiness that comes out after the storm is worth it. The sufferings that bended my knees taught me to stand up and fight again. After all, I am way better today than yesterday.

I believe everything happens for a reason,people change so you can learn to let go and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Father’s Day

PS. Late post. Originally posted on Tumblr last father’s day. 🙂

When I was born, you were there to catch me when i fall, whenever and wherever. When i said my first words, you were there for me to teach me the whole dictionary if need be. When i took my first steps, you were there to encourage me on. When i had my first day at school, you were there to give me advice and help me with my homework.

I still haven’t found any job (with pay), or walked down the aisle, or had my first child.

But I know you will be there for me through all these times and more, the good and bad.

Thank You for everything Pa. For giving me the best childhood memories where you were my best playmate.For being the reason why I lost almost all my teeth before because you always brought me chocolates and ice cream after your work. For not hurting me physically and emotionally.. It’s so hard to find a man that can love me like only you can.

We (RR) always see a friend in you. So I just wrote this to say “We LOVE YOU PAPA SO MUCH!!!’ We appreciate everything you did for us. We only ask God to keep you and mama safe, in good health and pain-free for many, many years. We are extremely blessed to have the presence of a kind, funny and loving father!


A River of Life

Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life!



Finally, it’s really good to be back after a heartbreak. A heartbreak not because of love but because of a broken dream.. I was depressed and c couldn’t even move a bit ‘cause of another waves of trials. I maybe smiling on the outside where in fact I wasn’t. But I realized that I should not waste my time feeling down and clogged up. Time can’t be rewinded… thus, we have to look forward and move on.

Life can be full of wrongs and rights, sadness and triumphs…But you better believe the one that remains through it all is your Mother.
Ma Mhylia Gabriel, You are always there when I am at my weakest, you influence my life through your unconditional love..I just wanted to tell you that I love you…everyday, not just on Mother’s Day
