Today, the 8th of December, is the 5th anniversary of the burial of the former director of the secondary hospital where I acted as the head nurse for nearly 7 years. Doctor DSL died on the 31st of October, 2012 and all of us former employees paid our respect to him. I recall how his bereaved wife led me to Doc DSL’s casket: ”Ingrid, he is so ‘gwapo’ even inside his coffin!” Manang BBL the wife was smiling while saying that. I agree. Doc DSL is the most handsome among all his brothers and he stood out when all of them siblings are together. December 8 is memorable to me, aside from my first Holy Communion and the feast of the Immaculate Conception. I was employed to just 3 institutions: this hospital, Ministry of Health in Kuwait, and my present college of nursing, as a clinical preceptor. I am grateful to doc DSL because he honed my knowledge, skills and attitude in the practice of my vocation. This picture attached is in my memory on Facebook. I am with colleague Miss FCT who was with me and still with me. Said location is in the Sanctuary of Peace where Doc DSL was laid to rest.

yes, doc DSL is the man i will never forget. i remember him saying that he will make any or all of his employees cry. all of my co-employees cried. i did not. even if he raised his voice on me, i did not cry. that is already a success to me. i resigned without shedding a tear.
it is indeed a significant month for you. are you still in touch with his wife? they say it's good to land a job in government hospitals in the middle east. by the way, what's the difference between a secondary and tertiary hospital?
