*How my day started*
4:52 a.m. It’s too early, please go back to sleep.
5:17 a.m. No baby, still too early…go back to sleep.
5:23 a.m. Sighs. Okay…you can get up now. Na work dey rush you.
5:30 a.m. I’m already in the bathroom when my alarm rings.
After having my bath, I put some food on the gas cooker, then went back to bed to have my quiet time.
Finally stepped out of the house around 7:20 a.m. as I’m doing the 8 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. shift today.
The first patient I saw was a toddler who had some episodes of vomiting and loose stool, and managed a case of enterocolitis with antibiotics and oral rehydration solution.
The second patient was a newly diagnosed hypertensive who I spent a considerable amount of time counseling.
*4 hours later*
1:45 p.m. After attending to a new admission on the ward, my energy level is like 30% . I don’t know where all the food I ate went o. Sighs.
So I was called to see a patient in the Emergency room.
A little girl had a laceration inside her upper lip following a traumatic fall, thankfully the blood loss was minimal and her vitals were stable.
After cleaning out the area, I infiltrated with Xylocaine solution then sutured using vicryl 2.0.
Though my surgical skills are pretty basic, I did a good job anyway.
I just finished reviewing a pregnant woman on the labor ward who is being induced. Every bone in my body feels tired.
Finally, my shift is over and I can officially take my leave. 💃💃💃
So here’s a list of all the cases I managed today:
