pinraha ( thats how cikgu used to pronounce it.. )
Wow.. it was indeed a very hectic 5 days !!
I was on call... the whole weekend ; Saturday , Sunday and Tuesday !! Well, initially i was suppose to be ON on Saturday and Tuesday. However ,i dunno what got into me on Sunday morning; post Neuro call.. The whole Sunday on-call team was in the pantry receiving pass-overs from the Saturday team. Azrin ( the specialist ) then asked me , whether i was keen to continue as Kak Maznah had a family emergency ; thus making the general emergency team to be short.
I know that initially they were joking but somehow i was considering it seriously ! My Neuro call on Saturday was ok as i had no major case that made me loose my sleep. So when i told them my intention :
" Hello... are you ok ? why do you wanna do a 48 hour call ? Nobody does that and by all means.. don't you have a life ??? "
haksss.. me ? no life.. interesting thought... haks.. Well , It was a strategic decision. If i do my call on Sunday , i will get Monday off which is much better than the off sunday. nO LIST AND NO PREMEDS TO DO !! Wifey will not be around in the afternoon and i don't mind doing it.. so ok la.. do the call !!! Sharmila , Suba , Ganesh.. were like .. haks.. i am indeed a crazy man. Initially wifey didn't take it well of my decision , but hey.. its for the best love...
Indeed , Sunday's call was cold. I was lucky.. otherwise , i was actually feeling the letharginess towards evening. Luckily there were no cases so i managed to catch my sleep. And at night , we "tutup kedai" at 2am , which is early compared to usual standards . HAks..
But yesterdays call , was bad. I only felt the tiredness yesterday as i struggled to maintain my sanity till 5 am in the morning...
p/s still groggy..
