I'll Be Home For Christmas

I'll be home for Christmas
You can count on me

Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light beams

I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams...

I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams.



those flat lines were depressing... I know time will come that the people we know, the persons we love, or even we, ourselves, will have those flatlines...

I just hope and pray it wont be too soon.

savante said...

OMG ASYSTOLE! GEt the freakin crash cart!

frisian keeper said...

ruff ness where are you..

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@KRIS JASPER ANGEL: Exactly. The even more depressing thing? Seeing lines on the cardiac monitor yet doing nothing…in a patient whose relatives opt not to further resuscitate.
~Everything happening… on a Christmas day.

Life they say, may not be fair, but it has indeed, a whole lot of sense of humor.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@ACEY: Atleast she’s peacefully at home. For Christmas.
@JACKIE: There’s a reason behind everything. Life, death, victories, celebration, defeats, failures, beginnings, and endings. Everything has its place under Heavens.
~All in His Time.

I miss you ate jackie! Stay lovable and happy holidays!

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@THE NOMAD: At a point when I though that I was almost too numb to feel anything came my patient’s (lola’s) death.

And I saw a tear falling down my face.

And I know that everything will definitely be fine.

Always up nomad. Always up.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@BRYAN ANTHONY I: Will surely try to, bryan. Will surely try to.
@MINK: THE ARABIAN PALADIN: Happy new year too. Happy greetings from sunny Manila.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@FRUITYOATY: Thank you very much fruityoaty! Same shout-out from me to you.
@PALMA TAYONA: On the other hand, I, was expecting a miracle.

The miracle that happened? Me being more appreciative of the gift of life.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@MRS. J.: I’m just doing the best that I can.
~Like I always say, all in a day’s job.
@KIKS PHULUMULU: Darn kiks, I really need some human warmth. If only you were there that night, then I wouldn’t have felt that alone.

In fairness I had a great holiday, kiks. Coming home to a warm company of family and loved ones is surely a balm to the hurt.

Hope you're having a wonderful time kiks.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@BINGSKEE: From the time that I have accepted this job, I told myself that I wouldn’t have any reservations, complaints, nor regrets for this is the kind of life that I chose, and therefore I will live it with pride, confidence, and conviction.

And this is me… doing that.

Happy holidays bing. Extend my regards to your wonderful hubby and amazing kids.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@PAT: A much much relevant greetings to you too, Patrick.
@DOTEP: Baka ‘yan yung katabi ni “lola” sa morgue. May 2 babies kasi sa morgue ref eh. Diba nakaka-depress? Andaming namatay nung Christmas eve.
~Anyways, hindi naman ako worried since kasama na nila si Papa God. Syempre sa heaven sila magkaka-sama.
~Hopefully. :-)

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@JUZ: In times like these, we could only hope for the best.
~Sabi nga sa Ecclesiastes, there’s “a time to born, and a time to die.” All of us will reach the latter, in our own proper time.
@LAD: Oo nga eh, nasasanay na akong mamatayan ng pasyente. Imagine, naka-3 akong mortality last December. Pero cyempre hindi naman because of my negligence. Time lang talaga nila. Kasalanan ko bang mag Ventricular Tachycardia at Asystole ang puso nila.
~Actually, walang putukang naganap lad. Baka ikaw pa nga diyan eh! :-) Hahahaha.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@LAWSTUDE: Wishing you good health, long life and success for the coming year lawstude.
~And of course, world peace.
@KRIS JASPER ANGEL: Sure will do kris jasper. ‘Kaw pa?! Malakas ka kaya sa akin! :-)

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@CEDEUX: Happy new year on your so-called-quest! :-)
@COACH: Meli klismasu kotz. Sayang hindi man lang kita na-meet nung nandito ka sa Pinas. Kain sana tayo sa Korean restaurant. Hahaha. O ng hospital foods. Hehehe.

Happy new year coach. Mishu!

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@CHASE: Love you chase! Kiss ko?!
~Iniisip ko na lang “good karma, Ruff, good karma.” Ibe-bless ka rin ni Lord sa mga sacrifices mo. :-) Hehehe.
@KALANSAY COLLECTOR: Pero witnessing someone dying is nowhere near those TV scenes. Dying is nasty. Horrendous even.
~At pag nakita mo ang flat line na hindi nagbago for 30 minutes, alam mong wala ka na talagang magagawa.

Walang second take, walang cut, walang pack-up.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@BINO/GENO: The room? 3,000 per day. The cardiac monitor? 1,500 every 8-hour-shift. The ventilator? 5,000 a day. Medications? 5,000 a day minimum. Infusion pump? 2,400 a day per pump. The supplies? 5,000 minimum a day. Plus the physicians’ professional fees.

So there.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@CRAZED HECK: That’s my patient crazed heck. Si Lola “N.” Tinakpan ko na lang ang mukha kasi ayaw ko rin makita yung dying face niya.
~Baka multuhin ako ni lola. Hihihi.
@GODDESS: Still alive and kicking goddess!

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@SAVANTE: DNR, doctor. I guess our business is done here. :-)
@FRISIAN KEEPER: Dave?! Here I am, baby.
