A Re-evaluation of Old Values and Beliefs in the New Millennium For the Betterment of Tomorrow

No longer will I scoff snootily at the diagnosis “shock secondary to poor intake”. I can already hear you scoffing snootily, high and mighty intellectuals (HAMI). But I’ve recently had severe gallbladder pain, vomited just once, and didn’t eat or drink anything at all for just one day, and my blood pressure already plummeted down below normal and stuff. What, now you’re asking if there weren’t any other causes of hypotension, you HAMI—what, this is now an audit?!

In my delirious state I heard Jaydeelou make a formal announcement to everyone in the callroom: “Announcement,Agent Mulder is hypotensive. This is not a joke, hypotensive talaga sya”, and on cue Renrerenrenren immediately pulled my hand and fished for my wriggling veins. I woke up cogent the next morning and while everyone was looking away I pulled out the IV line and ran out of the callroom crazily in true PGH absconding patient fashion.

See, this should teach you (or just me) about scoffing. I am now re-evaluating and reflecting back on the things I’ve scoffed at before: the efficacy of pinulbos the penicillin, pasma, the concept of lagnat sa loob and goiter sa loob, usog, and chanting in front of dead chickens for wealth. So scoff, HAMI, scoff.

  2. what happened to you??? cardiogenic shock ba yan? bat di nirefer sa cardio? tsk tsk tsk


  3. Smoketh, good luck sa exam bukas. Nawa'y hindi ito Fabry's Disease na may may Creutzfeldt-Jakob in shock.Ma'am Jean: My GB stones acted up, happens once every 3 years. Must stock up on Nubain therefore.


  4. hmmmm. I remember tuloy nung nahypotension si s. lim in the middle of donating blood. We had to bring her to ICU at dun namin siya hi-nydrate. maybe you should undergo stone removal already . . . baka next time di lang hypotension ang mangyari.


  5. hey will, many thanks for posting again . . . missed reading your blogs.


  6. i guess every batch has someone they had to line in the callroom. sa amin si haydee! she had stones too. and there's always someone walking around with a heplock.=)
