Double off? Nope..

I was absent from work yesterday and today’s my off. I am planning not to go on duty tomorrow if the weather’s too bad.. Maybe that will be the time I’m going to experience FORCE MAJEURE.

You know, so many things are running on my mind right now like questions that I don’t know what to answer. Last October 15, we experienced Earthquake here in Cebu and another calamity will again test our faith and preparedness this week… yea, have you heard the news about Super Typhoon #Yolanda that will hit Central Visayas? Ugggghhh when will all of these end?

I am really confused about my responsibility whether to go on duty tomorrow or not. My profession isn’t easy. Being a nurse is not easy… it is selfless. Serving humanity is easy but it becomes hard when nature is your enemy. 😦

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 🙂

Posted in MY RANDOM FEELINGS, Nursing Adventure with tags , , , , , , , on October 10, 2013 by nursemihoko


Since I became a registered nurse, nursing has offered me not only a rewarding career but a way to give back to society. It has allowed me to enter people’s lives and touch them, even if only for a brief moment. I have been fortunate enough to be able to both laugh and cry with my patients, often all in the same shift. I have seen births and witnessed deaths, both of which can be very rewarding. Holding someone’s hand as they let go from the world can be very emotionally draining for a nurse but also gratifying at the same time, knowing that you have done all you can to help that patient and accompanied him as he entered another place. Nursing has allowed me the opportunity to care for the sick, promote health in the well, and advocate for all.
Nursing has brought me a great many friendships and mentors that I cherish. It has taught me to be selfless and to give more of myself and expect less from others. Nursing has taught me about being a professional and earning respect, not expecting it. It has taught me about leadership and teamwork, both of which are necessary to succeed in this profession.

Lastly, this profession has taught me that as one door closes another door opens, allowing for countless opportunities as a registered nurse.

Haaay, Thank You Adventist Hospital Cebu for all!

I work in a profession that puts no cap on learning, each day is filled with new and exciting learning experiences. I learned to always assume that our sedated patient can hear us; to ALWAYS treat ALL patients with respect. I also realized that when I have an opportunity to learn something new, I should grab it with both hands. Sometimes, we have to sacrifice our personal needs like meals, needing to go to the comfort room, etc. How to communicate with grouchy, mean doctors was not taught in pathophysiology.. good thing I was ready to deal with docs who frankly see me as the bane of their existence. haha! Ok, I’m generalizing here, yet the truth remains..  Lastly I was not prepared for the camaraderie I would form with the doctors and nurses I work with and the patients I care for. We nurses are in a business of people: good, bad, beautiful, ugly, functional, dysfunctional, alive and dead. People are our vocation as RNs and nothing is more rewarding than that!  Indeed, nurses are LIFETIME learners. charvakee!
