Nursing Care from the Heart of the Champ Final Series

We just read the two parts of the three series shared article from one of our avid reader who’s currently based in the middle east and living the dream he once said as an inspiration that now turned into a reality. Away from the tempting world but within the arms of his loved ones. He comes from a clan of medical professionals who, like him have had memorable stay in other parts of the world. Our contributing writer is also a sports buff specializing in basketball… He plays solid defense at 1 or 2 position and skilfully attack the basket at 1 or 2 also, happily married and looking forward to put up a small clinical laboratory in his native country one day.

Third part of the three series, final

It was, Mid day, our head nurse took time to sit with us and discussed or rather counsel us with what has just transpired, we shared one by one our thoughts, emotions and we listened to what each one of us had to say. We were remarkably attached to the patient in different ways, there was good rapport built with the family, and for us nurses it’s likely to witness such an event  of losing a loved one , but this one…. was very special, I saw our unit moved and performed as one, helping each other, even with the minuet details as to the whole workload schedules that gone throughout the duration that saw some gone covering for the rest of the unit while the others were busy with the child, some ran around to get things like a simple stretcher for transport, everyone has had a fair share of contribution. We had all the same question in mind during and after the incident, is there something I could’ve done better for him at that certain moment, yes! there is and I saw that within my  pair eyes, TOTAL and UNWAVERING SUPPORT! as we were all physically, emotionally, spiritually, socially supportive to the patient and the family all throughout the process, from the time the patient was diagnosed, to carrying out the proper treatment regimen for the child, from admission till palliative care, We provided not just total patient care but genuine care, we gave not just medications but compassion, comfort, empathy and love …. these all are just some few humble traits that nurses gave without avarice, that it instill great pride and honor as we are all aware of the limitations our formal educations provided to us.  We have grown the mutual respect that seemed hard to achieve at first glance in culture rich environment. It was indeed the universal language of love and dedication as a nurse that caught all of us during the eleventh hour and no other words could describe my feelings after this experience but simply say….. ….. I am proud to say that I am a part of that unit.  Quinro “Pampi” V. Sioson, RN

There’ll be a lot of ways to nurse the sick but there’ll be no other better way from a heart of a true Champ. – Paquito

Endurance in Willingness is the Key

Good morning my dear readers and fellow bloggers, it’s summertime once again here in the Philippines and everyone’s mind is preoccupied with white sands, blue salty waters and great sunrise and sunset. But for some who have no luxury of lengthy time to get away from work are satisfied with summer games. Yes you hear it right, summer games are the best time to hit open tennis courts, football field, oval tracks and caged courts. Sports buff from all ages are a pretty sight to see especially those past their prime of 60’s hitting the fields in their comfy bikes and joggers suit.

Though its not enough for others to do it with their motto of “the mind is willing but the body is not”  isn’t it our willingness that truly matters when it comes onto an activity requiring physicality and constant endurance? Chinese sexagenarians are a staple in every open halls doing their old rituals and forms of meditations, yoga and martial arts movement which is to stay fit not only mental but emotional and physical as well.

And for everybody to enjoy the summer, they must put in the same amount of enthusiasm in willingness to do things within their limited and acceptable level of satisfaction and prolong their participation and keep improving the mental and physical toughness we all wanted.

The itch to do it remains intact till the last sweat of willingness drops. – Paquito

No More No Less

We always hear it, from people who are satisfied and couldn’t ask anything for more as for them they got the limit they’ve been expecting before. My curiosity drives me a bit higher thinking how those billionaires define the no more no less thing in their lives? The same questions when it comes to people like us who are just mere witness of their success. But if we are to take a closer look, there were those who’ve been born on the silver spoon in fact golden i must say. And there are those who’ve start from down under the rag and worked their way up to the echelons of the top 1000 world billionaires of 2017.

Since billionaires think simple, straightforward and strong, let me start the day with this simple statement…. No amount of effort is more than the possibilities could ever give if we seek less than the millisecond of time to think how we should try and keep on trying until we succeed.

For as long as you believe, give it a try until you find it. – Paquito

How a Sacrifice won a Championship

The Philippine Basketball Association’s Philippine Cup was won by the powerhouse San Miguel Beermen with 4-1 of the best of seven series. What was significant for this series are three things. The perpetual trophy, the runner up’s huge following with their never say die spirit and the back to back finals MVP, SMB point guard Chris Ross.

After receiving his MVP award from Cignal HD representatives, he was asked for some words for the PBA fans especially those rooting for San Miguel Beermen. He goes on to say that it was through great sacrifices of each fifteen members of the team that made it possible…to achieved two things… one in winning the championship trophy and next is why he won the MVP in a back to back fashion. And that everybody made the needed adjustment for him to be in a position to contribute more in scoring, share the ball more often and run the floor in a seamless offensive manner that made the team’s dynamism as a force to reckon with  and maximize their unique potentials both inside the paint and beyond the arc positions in beating the crowd favorite Ginebra San Miguel.

A team built around sacrifices has a greater chance of winning a championship.  – Paquito
