Your Peacock


I'm on a night shift and I just finished ordering our foods at Dairy Queen on the phone for our merienda later when I got a bleep...

"cardiac arrest at CCU! cardiac arrest at CCU! cardiac arrest at CCU!"

OMG! that's my area! I exclaimed.

My friends laughed and teased me: Goodluck! that's early! toxic king ka talaga!

I run as fast I as I can at the lift going to the 6th floor.

The nurses pointed me to the room 03 bed number 1 when I entered the ICU. Every one was there except me. Late lang. Ganyan. lol

"how long have u been doing CPR?" i asked.

"1o minutes now, brother" (call me sister, not brother! chos) they answered. Most of them are female nurses, so I helped with the resuscitation. Doing the chest compression was not easy. It will tire you off. So it would be helpful if there are many people to relieve you.

One and two and three and four and five... I was counting inside my mind while doing the CPR at an old lady with too much blood coming out of her mouth and nose. Too much that our bed became soaked with her blood.

I don't think she could make it. Too much complications on her case. But regardless, we'll do everything to save her. We have to follow the protocol.

Masakit na braso ko, so I asked for a reliever. I now do the bagging. (giving artificial ventilation using a valved bag for the airway) Mas madali toh e! LOL

I looked around. Most of the nurses are muslims. Two filipina. One indian and one egyptian doctors.

Everyone was serious. All busy with helping to revived this old lady's heart. I checked my watch. Its been 30 minutes now.

Nakakatense ang atmosphere...all i could hear was the monitors alarming...



Until my phone rang!


I wanna see your peacock-cock-cock...
Your Peacock-cock-cock...
Your Peacock-cock-cock....


OMG!!!

wagas na wagas pa naman sa lakas ang tone ko! Nanlaki mata ko sa pagkabigla at panic.

I forgot to change my settings to silent!

I remembered something! it must be the delivery guy from Dairy Queen! I totally forgot about it!

Kakahiyaaaaaaa! Kung nasa ibang situation ako malamang everyone just laughed. But I am not.

Halos lahat pa naman kaharap ko e konserbatibo! LOL

Everyone looked at me As if telling me: cock? seriously brother??? Even the patients relatives are staring at me. Imagine!

Its impossible for me to answer the call. My hands are full of bloods and I am holding the big valved bag for breathing for the patient, so we speak. My hands are full!


And the guy kept on ringing me! Di makahalata na toxic ang beki!



I wanna see your peacock-cock-cock...
Your peacock-cock-cock...
Your peacock-cock-cock...





OK . Can I die now?!

That's funny! LOL. Moral lesson: Choose your ringtone carefully. Katy Perry, sparingly.

Hahaha!

Seriously, did your patient survive?

Mac Callister said...

@rudeboy--it was really funny! my friends are laughing their ass off when I told them what happened.

@leo--hehe sinabi mo pa!buti di ako napagalitan nun doctor.

well, narevived namin siya...then 15minutes later nag arrest siya ulit and di na namin siya nabuhay this time. matanda na din naman siya at madami sakit.

kenchu said...

ZaiZai said...

Sean said...

oh my gawd. buti di siya nag-expire at that time. baka kung saan mapunta ang kaluluwa niya.

citybuoy said...

omg how embarrassing! nakakaloka..dapat may pahmin kang ringtone. try mo born this way. lolz

V1nC3 said...

Come to think of it.. Baka kaya niyo siya na-revive the first time is because napa-indak siya upon hearing that song. Kita mo, the second time, wala nang song, hindi na siya na-revive. =)

Mac Callister said...

@kenchu--hehehe i love that song kasi!

@zai--well we revived her for a few minutes and arrested again and expired...

@sean--yeah,nabuhay namin siya saka siya pumanaw after a few minutes ulit :-(
