NARROW ESCAPE

12th May 2018. Time check: 3:30am. Another night duty! I pitched my eyes across the expanse of the room with very sleepy eyes, after penning down IV Vitamin K 1mg stat, on the drug sheet of the fresh baby I had examined. “Give 192 mls of 10% plain dextrose in a fifth of Normal Saline…

CARDIO

It was one very hot afternoon… Never mind.. Not a story day. I started my cardio workouts today. I feel it would be a great time to catch some air from the pollution caused by the stress of work. I know it won’t be easy compounding the long hours spent at work, with the albatross…

A TALE OF THE NIGHT

It was a cold, windy, starry night. Forget about the stars, but the wind was cold. A night you would not want to spend in a cramped place like this, but in the coziness of your duvets. Time check- 9:25pm. All I could do was marvel at the manual dexterity my boss displayed after a…

IN SYNC WITH THE SPIRIT?

I woke up today with the desire to know more about the Holy Spirit. How could I increase my relationship with him better and better with each passing day?  Growing up I was introduced to the concept of the Trinity – Three persons in one body. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The…

DUTY OF CARE

I was listening to the morning show on the radio yesterday. I was glued to my seat because the topic then being discussed was an interesting one. It was a narrative of how a 28 year old man had reported to the hospital for simple appendectomy (surgical procedure to remove the appendix) resulted in extensive…

FROZEN ABDOMEN

He was the talk of the news which kept every radio and tv station grimacing to the utterance of his name. How he rose to such fame was unknown by all and sundry. He was known in the entertainment industry as “the Pop”. I had access to him because we were connected by blood –…
