ABC’s of Life

I visited the mall yesterday, SM Megamall was having it’s 3-day sale. So to speak, there were a lot of people buying this and that. I came from my shift so I was really tired, by 3pm I decided to head home. I was on the FX terminal, it was not so hot since the rain just poured out over the Manila area. Suddenly, I heard noises and when I turned around there was an old lady who was very giddy. Good thing the couple behind was able to catch her. People were panicking because the old lady fainted. I can’t believe myself when I shouted “Ikuha niyo si Lola ng upuan dun!” (“Get grandma a chair there!”) while pointing to the area where they can get one. I am not sure if they heard me but soon enough, someone got them one. I wanted to approach the old lady and assess her. I want to tell her who I was and maybe I can help. I want to tell her to unhook her bra and tell the people around her to calm down. AIRWAY, BREATHING and CIRCULATION were the first things I remember. Unfortunately, my nursing license is expired, good thing the good hearted couple took care of her, they had her drink water, called security guards and even went home with her. I know they will be blessed. God will bless them for being so kind.

One realization for me, I still remember the basics when it comes to emergency, seems like the earth is telling me that I should become a nurse eventhough I am on denial telling myself I will not survive hospital work. Let us see what will happen in the future.
