I was cleaning the living room and re-arranging photo albums when I stumbled on my old college album. As I was flipping through the pages, it brings back lots of good recollections while I was still studying on my medical years. It’s been 2 decades already but the memories are still lingering. The days that we spent on duties at different hospitals are always memorable for we are exposed to different patients and different samples at the laboratory.
I had quite a lot of fun and great experiences on our 4th year as Medical Technologists for we are already on our internship year. The endless trips to the E Rand respective rooms to get blood samples of our patients were quite a challenge and an experience. There are times when we need to extract blood from a difficult patient, patients who are about to die and in severe pain. We need to give our utmost care and patience in doing our work. Waking up in the middle of the night during our night duties is also different as we need to be on call anytime.
I hope next time, I’ll have the chance to see my friends way back at the time we’re wearing our uniforms so that more memories will bring back.
Ahhh.. I just misses being a Medical Technologist!!
