On call tomorrow in Paediatrics OT

Tomorrow is my first call on Paediatrics OT. Well it is a once in a lifetime experience ... looking forward to it. I might be doing a case tomorrow where the baby has heart problems, with congenital defects such as a connection between the windpipe and the oesophagus ( where you swallow your food - the connection which leads to the stomach ) and no anal opening. If the patient is operated today then I dont need to do the case tomorrow.

Well I am learning alot. Hopefully I will be excited again about my masters program ... ok time to read a bit and sleep and prepare for my call tomorrow .... cheers

Lonely,tired and down

Today was my first day in Paediatrics OT on GHKL. I was giving gas to a premature baby which was only 1.3 kg !!!!! So tiny. Even my fingers are too fat ... so I guess I am not cut out to be a paediatrics anaesthesiologist. He he. There are so much to learn. I will be there for a month. Each specialist has his/her own style. Well I am here to learn and adapt.

l suddenly felt so alone while walking to my car today after all the adrenaline rush at work. Yeah it is possible to be lonely even in the midst of people. I am in a big big big hospital but I dont really have anyone who I can hang out with or relate to. Everyone is busy trying to finish his/her work. The workload is overwhelming sometimes. Yeah it can be lonely working here in GHKL. This is one thing which I need to overcome ... there are times I will be feeling so lonely and depressed due to my work and studies... thinking that I am missing so much in life. Maybe I should had done another profession. I was actually studying a diploma in computer programming while waiting to start my medical school. Would life had been different if I continued my computer studies.? Opppss mind jumping around like a monkey again ... hey come back to earth. Lord I submit my thoughts to You and please take away any thoughts which are not of You. I pray that You will grant me peace of mind and heart . I am trying to bury myself in work so that I wont think so much. Right now I am trying to start studying again ... actually I am forcing myself to start studying again..... it is working ? Beats me......

Lord help me to be who You want me to be ... not who I think I should be or who I would I like to be. May Your will alone be done in my life. You alone see the secret parts of my heart, the things that I struggle with and You still love me so perfectly. Lord help me to love myself as You had loved me. Help me to see myself the way that You see me ... Who am I ? I am Yours and Yours alone. Lord please come fill me and drive away the loneliness and depression which sometimes haunt me. May You be the God of all of me. Amen

Gloria Jeans

After Pernu seafood we all went to Gloria Jeans for some coffee. Well my faithful nokia 6630 tried to capture the night mood. But overall I am impressed with the nokia 6630 which came to my rescue when I could not use my digital camera. Some shots came out quite ok ... :)











More pictures at Pernu

More pictures at Pernu. The whole gang. All of them are doctors and they are in the Anaesthesia Department..





He is already in first year masters in Anaesthesia and hopefully he will be in GHKL next year. Then I will have more friends in GHKL. I stayed at his place when I was in Melaka.


This guy is already a specialist in Anaesthesia. He is someone I look up to and I hope that someday I will be a good specialist like him.



These guys are getting married in Dec. I am trying to make it for their marriage in Melaka. Sorry guys, she is already taken ... :)

Seafood at Pernu Melaka

Some pictures which I took when I had seafood with some of my friends from Hospital Melaka. We went to a place called Pernu on the way to Muar where they had really nice ikan bakar ... yummy and fresh....
