Good Wednesday afternoon from this side of the globe. As what I have discussed last night, today is the life-in-heaven anniversary of my late father. I and my sister had to wake up early, and the streets were not toxic, so I was able to drive to the church to attend the 6:30AM mass. Later, we had our breakfast at MacDonald’s located at the side of a roundabout road. We went to the cemetery and offered prayers for our departed parents. At 8:30AM, we were back home. I just had to go to the bathroom, and then we left for my sister’s consultation in the tertiary hospital where I handle my students. I still feel sleepy because I had my duty yesterday from 3PM to 11PM. But I was the very active SO or ‘significant other’ for my sister. I led her to the out-patient department, to the rehabilitation station (where the doctor was nowhere to be found). The physical therapists said the doctor is in a private hospital. And since we are already in the hospital, I encouraged my sister to have consultation with a medical doctor regarding the right shoulder pain that causes her to be cranky, rude, and sarcastic. (But this should not be the case--- I and my son are affected by her change of attitude). Going to the X-ray department to get a receipt, I brought the paper back to the cashier’s office for my sister to pay for the procedure. Then we went back to the medical clinic, where the lady doctor prescribed Eperisone (Myonal) which is a muscle relaxant. There are no fractures in her right shoulder. Her diagnosis is actually ’frozen shoulder’. We left for home at 12:10 mid-noon. And now, I am so tired, and I will just post this discussion and have a nap later. It is so exhausting being an SO but it is also beneficial because almost all nurses, doctors, nursing aides, and employees in the hospital know me and assisted me. (This is the advantage of being in the area for 13 years now).
