For me our greatest Doctor is Jesus and of course we Nurses are His sidekicks. Just when I woke up before I go to the hospital to do my duty I always have this mind setting activity before leaving my house. I close my eyes for a few seconds take deep breath and exhale mightily. Then I face the mirror telling to myself this sentence ... "today's gonna be a great day for you ghieghie, everything is going to be great just as the Lord plan for you" for 3x then i end it with a sweet smile.
I had my duty at the maternity ward, that day I was about to attend a mom who's about to give birth to her first baby. That woman is wearing a long dress with a set of hair dress I don't know how to call that but I'm sure that's what a Muslim woman wears. She's running out of breath and out of strength due to the pain she's going through, she can't even talk clearly then suddenly ... she's shouting the baby's head is out so I call on the midwife and the doctor and she deliver an alive bouncing baby boy!!
The problem arise when the mother is in the recovery room. She's bleeding profusely and the doctor ordered for a pack of blood to be transfused to the mother to replaced the blood she lost. When we're about to lend her the consent for blood transfusion she refused to sign it,even how the doctor explains the importance of it,still she refused to. So the doctor made some alternative order to stop the bleeding and thank God it works for her..
At the end of the day I saw her and her baby in a very calm aura even though her vitals was not stable ... actually she even smiled to me like there's nothing wrong, then it makes me realize that there are some instances in this world that science can't explain to tell you the truth that woman is about to die i saw her,, how she runs out of blood and it's a burden for me to see her in that situation. So I just pray silently but deeply for her, we had a different faith but i know in that life and death situation it's only God that we can run to ... yes, God alone.
