Hospitale.

This is a tale of today’s adventure. Spent at a hospital.. (too obvious?)
I know, lame name. But I like it!

So, our tale starts at 9pm where I was seated on my working chair, laptop in hand and ready to work for tonight’s shift.
Now I live with my cousin and her “hobby” this week is taking a bath with milk.
That’s right people. Milk.

As a Filipina, I guess she wanted to look fairer while I always want to be tan (my skin is fairer than hers by the way). People. Never satisfied, huh?

Anyway, so she took her time in the shower about an hour and a half with her milk bath.
Satisfied, she went to bed.

I was on my headset listening to music while I was working with prices, checking suppliers and their contacts and whatnot.

2am.

I needed a drink so of course, I took off my headset when……
I heard the softest voice saying “Ling…”  (I’m called Darling by my family…)
Calling ignored. I thought it was the radio or a cat.
It was 2 in the morning.. cmon!

Then I heard it again…. “Ling…”
I heard myself say… “Please don’t let it be a ghost..”
And then a 3rd time…. “Ling…”

It was my cousin calling out for me. I opened her door and there she was, in so much pain that she can barely walk. (I know it’s not funny……. yet.)
It turned out, she has been calling out for me for the last 20mins.
Thank you headset. tsk.

So as a Nurse by profession, I did everything I could.
Administered pain reliever, warm compress (stopped in fear of making it worse if its appendicitis), positioning and everything else I could think of.
Yet her pain scale was 9. That’s high.

And so, we called her boyfriend… well, ex-boyfriend (they’re cool) to come and bring her to the hospital.

Ex- Boyfriend arrives….
Cousin too weak to stand up..
Piggy-back ride.
(you get the idea)

So wobbly walk (due to difficult stairway and weight) and many sweats after, we finally got to the hospital.

The Funny part?
As we helped her up on the hospital bed, she looked at us and said…
“I think I’m okay now. The pain’s gone…”

Silence.

After the slight panic, the sweat and wobbly walk..
Her ex-boyfriend and I looked at each other and laughed..

3am people. 3am.

According to my cousin, her pain feared the hospital and it fled. hahaha

I told you everyday is an adventure, right?
So today, this was ours… 🙂

And this is how she looked at the hospital…
