Brushes with the Men in White

I spent the holiday going to the doctor for a checkup and I almost ended up spending the whole long weekend confined in the hospital. Not gonna happen.

It was like he was trying to scare the beejezus out of me; that this cellulitis may develop abscess that may  affect my whole thigh. So it is better off cured with IV than oral antibiotics. While I understand that, I am so not going to be confined for this loser of a cellulitis.

Amid all the scary tactics he’s using on me, he asked me what my work was because this may all be stress-related. And the minute he heard “I.T.” in I.T. consultant, he asked me if I can hack an account. I almost flipped over. He asked me twice about it. Crazy doctor.

So he gave me this admitting slip to the hospital for my confinement, and I went home. As soon as mom knew, she cried.  Like I was diagnosed with a deadly disease and that I’m dying tomorrow. The things this woman gets from watching too much soap. 🙂

After she gathered her wits about her, that her eeevvel daughter isn’t dying out on her any time soon, she went with me to another doctor for a second opinion. This doctor gave the same diagnosis but gave me oral meds (oral stuff indeed 😛 ) instead. Good enough for me.

I can’t help recalling this other encounter with my dad’s doctor. My mother  was smiling like a kid with a naughty secret when I went to relieve her on the shift with dad. She said the doctor kept on asking where I am as he has not seen me lately. When I finally bumped into him during my dad’s discharge from the hospital and after  discussing my dad’s condition, he said, “Bakit namumula yang mata mo?” I just said, shampoo was the culprit. And I was wearing my cap that time to actually hide it from prying eyes.

A week later for my dad’s checkup, he didn’t charge us for his professional fee. And when the whole family learned about it, their looks and smiles were screaming a chorus of “yiiiiiihhhhiiiiii!” Crazy family. ♥

For that second opinion, my mother wanted me to get it from my dad’s doctor. I had to remind her , “Nay, un problema ko po nasa hita, wala sa puso.”  (Well, technically there’s a problem with that now. It’s turned cold. Emo! hahaha)  Oh, did I say he is a cardiologist? I just gotta give it to my crazy mom. Mapilit lang talaga. (。◕‿◕。)

    Uyy it could be a sign. Baka naman sa doctor ang kapalaran mo. And malay mo, yun heart doctor pala ang magpapagaling ng hita mo.

    Kelangan lang ng tender loving touch from that doctor. Hihi
