Day 36... ‘I love Wednesdays!’ Antenatal days seems to be my favorite days in the hospital. Seeing pregnant women, examining their unborn child(ren), seeing the pure, undiluted ecstasy on their faces as their baby kicks and even calming them down as the anxiety of childbearing sets in, it gets me all excited. I came into … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (36)

Day 19... If I came in yesterday exhausted, I came in today ‘utterly worn out’!. I literally dragged myself to the hospital.

As I walked to the office, I met … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (19)

Day 18... Now I feel what the ‘working class’ go through when they feel super exhausted when they come back from a hard day’s job and use the whole weekend to sleep. I haven’t even started ‘WORK’ and I’m already feeling ‘spent’. Maybe God is sending a message, that hard life is nor for me … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (18)

I … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (17)
