Dear readers!
Today I had my 1st REAL experience of being a doctor. This time it was no playing “doctor-doctor” “doctor-patient” with my friends. This time we had to consult a real patient.
Fortunately, it was only IMCI (Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses) and we were in groups. In addition, Sister S was there to overlook. *I wonder if the mothers (and babies) felt intimidated by 5 med-students consulting them? Maybe they felt special?*
Alhamdulillah, I really enjoyed my morning – May Allah keep it that way. Ameen.

I reminisced, yet again, my failure to be able to speak the native languages. Most people in Bloem speak Sotho and Afrikaans. In general my Afrikaans sucks and... well...Sotho... “ Dumela” (greeting) is as far as I can get! *language –crisis* Embarassed

Ps. I do realise that I owe 2 blog posts:
The weird stuff about me (tagged by Blue Pearl); and
The versatile blogger (awarded by Rose Water)
So watch this space Smile

Slmz! Yep great fun indeed! :) it's good to c u back on the blogger world - I was wondering if your deleting 'Brotherhood' also meant you stopped reading other blogs:) All the best for your last 6 months!

Awww, thanks dear! I'm glad you are enjoying things. I think I had forgotten you were in the med field as well, though I remember a previous now that I think of it! Sorry, hehe. How long is your course? 5 years?

Anyways, yeah, I love leaving comments, so I will try to drop a comment here and there insha'allah.

Thanks for the wishes.

See you around!
