It does not take alot to brighten up my life.l
I was so busy and down in my day 1 moship, because the gap of knowledge is so big, the learning curve is so steep and time seemed not enough.
Just as I was about to give up on today, and brushed it off as another bad day of my life, this msg came:
(I cant printscreen)
X - Hi. Are you there?
Me - ? What did I do wrong boss?
X - Just wanted to say thanks for treating my grandma a few days back
Me - Hahahah. Me?
X - Yup. She had a small cut on the finger on Friday night
Me: Yeoh? Lin?
X - Yong.
Me - Oh, ya...nice auntie.
X - She is so happy with u.
Me - She is examplary patient
X - Going on and on about you. Driving me nuts
Me - I feel good treating nice auntie like her. Seldom do HPC randomly, but decided to do one la since she is so kind and friendly.
X - I know!! Just wanna say thanks. Dr Ang from Penang, very very polite and kind bla bla bla
Me - So it is ur auntie! I tot it is my inlaws testing me. So I pretend!! Hahahaha!!!
X - No it is not my auntie. My maternal grandma!!! Flesh and Blood, hahaha. Really thankful she met such a good doctor like u. Shes sooooo happy. Think you made her day for many days on :)
Me - Hahahaha.
No, auntie you made my day.
Sometimes we do alot of good things, but no one recognises us.
But it takes a great satisfaction, when you are treating a patient of complete stranger, who turns out to be one of your friends/boss's relatives, and they speak highly and thankfully of u.
Really made my day.
And really, I do random HPC for all patients above 50 I see in A&E.
Not knowing you are diabetic is just unaccetable in this current medical advancement.
