Yesterday was a whirlwind.
That said, despite the hectic afternoon (which resulted in me swallowing 2 cheesy lasagnas and two bowls of canned fruits for breakfast&lunch in just a record-breaking 8 minutes) before going back to running after my patients (almost literally!) --- the morning was indeed a sweet morning.
I woke up as per usual around 5.45am, and was waiting for the bus by 6.12am. The bus I take is famously known for being the slowest bus in the city, much to my joy -.-'
I heard someone calling ‘Sue’ at first. I didn’t bother of course cos’ I didn’t think it was for me. I was after all, standing at a random bus stop with people up at this absurd hour.
It was freezing. And the name-calling continued…I still hadn’t turned my head. Then, it gradually got louder- so I tilted my head just to peek at the person repeating the name-calling.
This time I heard it loud and clear.
‘SUEYI, SUEYI. It’s me, ANDY’ --- a smile lit up in my face.
*hahahaha* it’s Andy, my co-intern whilst I was on my emergency rotation about a month ago!
He saw me standing and waiting – and he said he didn’t want me to freeze waiting for the bus! *awww*
I was obviously stunned at seeing him unexpectedly- I knew he lived around the area; but him coming down, calling me and offering me a ride to work together- I was ecstatic! *hahaha* I hit him in the back with both my hands enthusiastically and with joy! *haha* And there, I had a nice warm ride to work. And as it turns out, we were both on call.
My senior and I had another blast of a night on call. Food talk in our call room, talking about chicken stew, sushi, Thai food for end-of-rotation report, Indian buffet, cheesecake, Brazilian steakhouse. And then, onto rampaging dinner and breakfast this morning together =)
I love my HIV/AIDS rotation.
