Cranial content: on epidural hemorrhage and play-play

I've been thinking...well since yesterday, about Craze clown and Ade. You know them right? If you're on Instagram or even on Facebook you've seen some of their funny skits.
For the purpose of this discuss, let's pretend you're a medic just in case you're not...shall we? *here's a high five*.
You know, from all the slaps...is it possible for Ade to get epidural hemorrhage? I mean, I know some are fake but not all, mistakes do happen. Let's take a scenario where Ade gets slapped and lands on the floor; fracturing his temporal bone. What if he has a contusion? I mean, no outward appearance, all from the fall. Young man looses consciousness for a bit and recovers and then gbam...slips into oblivion. I'm here like: God forbid!
Whats the basis of this you might ask. Well, these were the thoughts in my head as I learnt about epidural hemorrhage.
Here's a take home; if someone falls and looses consciousness, please see your doctor.
I know, this medicine …

6YML: An unexpected journey

Image
In my 6th year I decided to take time off to work and travel, I'm really happy I did this because it ended up in much less stress than doing it compact in 1 year. I went traveling through India with 2 of my best childhood friends. The trip was very hard at times but incredibly joyful at times, it taught me that simple daily things can be a struggle and when they go without flaw that's a blessing.
After that I worked as a doctor at a surgery ward for 5 months and got great experience and insight into clinical work and what field I want to choose after graduation.

Cranial content: The 'shit' diary (the defecation reflex)

I spoke to the toilet this morning!
'Make way you rectum! Open your external anal sphincter and let me flow into the toilet'
Release the grip of the pudendal nerve and allow me pass.
Thank God your owner has no active incontinence
else it be socially acceptable or not,
it be broad daylight or not,
it be infront of your examiner or not,
if you, oh rectum be filled...I mayest passeth not withstanding.
you know, just like a baby! LOL'
What is funny? you think the food was nice,
garnished, HACCP fully covered,
oh...I see, Abby's kitchen did the trick...
nice try, but we both know if this was the case of passive incontinence
your white coat would be penetrated! Brown as stercobilinogen pleases...
stercobilinogen...hmmm, many more reasons to be thankful!
why? you ask...
close your mouth else primary saliva will be forced to drop out too!
with all its glory of high K and Cl, low Na and HCO3
as the reverse is the case for our intended secondary saliva after passing through the…

6YML: 6th year....

Image
Let's rewind to 5th year. From the first day, you are all excited about your final class year, from listening to boring lectures to neptun wars, looking for placements for 6th year but as soon as that is over, the real work starts and it can be overwhelming.

I initially had plans to finish by June but as they say "Our plans aren't always God's plan". So I have decided to enjoy the final year as much as I can. I'm halfway through the rotation but it hasn't been as interesting as these last 2 weeks of my Pediatrics rotation at a hospital in Nigeria.
From my first day here, I've been treated so nicely, introducing myself as Dr Oluwo just feels as good as the day I got my admission letter into Dote, and actually working with patients directly instead of just observing.

Abeg let's even put that to one side and let me gist you about this colleague of mine at this hospital . So that's how jejely I went to get a key from his office and my guy just looked…

6th Year My Life (6YML):

Image
So I flew from Osaka to Istanbul and from Istanbul to Budapest today. It was a good flight, they had good movies, good food and I had enough space to stretch out while sleeping. The Japanese are super polite, that was one thing I noticed upon returning to the western world, the manners are totally different.It was easy to be polite in Japan because everyone is polite, but in Europe: not so easy. Still I smiled today, when no one was smiling, I consciously decided to say hello and thank you, I'm sorry, excuse me, even if it didn't matter to the people I said it to, and even if they didn't  return the courtesy because that's the right thing to do. Ahh I hope I can continue this way, I think life is much more peaceful this way, when people are courteous to others and give consideration to others.

6th year my life (6YML): Morning Glory..Or Lack of.

Image
The past 4 weeks have been impossibly hectic. Waking up every morning at 6:30am is not my thing..or anyone else's. Morning people; if you know one, or you are one, consider euthanasia because you are the bane of society, you are contemptible and in fact we can not continue with you, but I digress.
Csiba makes me nervous. I consider myself a proud igbo brother. In my mind's eye, I carry myself with gravitas befitting of the land east of the Niger. Dr Csiba reduces me to bumbling buffoon. Today I forgot how to pronounce "Ischemia". I am completely unable to complete a sentence , irregardless of how brief without the use of ehn's, ahem's and likes accompanied by a steady flurry of inappropriate, superfluous hand gestures .
My journey ends tomorrow. D-i and the other members of our inept posey will continue to carry the torch for us (they need nursing signatures).

Hello

*please just insert Adele's voice singing hello*
I'm not even going to over think writing on this my blog. I told Ebi I was going to start today so I'm making the move.

Hello, I've been away for so long. At one point I re-read my first post, looked for clues and tried to re-structure (on paper but actions speak louder than words) See eh, I'm here no...that's all that matters. Sebi?
I'm one with a ready apology...so I apologise to my Father, myself and you...and really, I'm sorry.

In other news: aunty Adele can sing oh...kai!

The blogger testifies

Wouldn't I sing of YOUR goodness? Wouldn't I tell it on the rooftop?
Shouldn't I shout it out for all to hear? That YOU've been good to me and YOU light up my world?
Its because of YOUR mercies I am not consumed. Its because of YOUR kindness that I have hope. Its because of who YOU are that I have a future...a very wonderful, a bright future. Its because of YOU my hope is ever secure, ever sure. Its because of YOU that I can cry out in praise.
YOU oh LORD, light up my world.
I testify, that even in my silence, even in tears and words unspoken...all this while, YOU have been so faithful and I am so grateful.

Thank YOU JESUS

Hello everyone :) No...the fact that I'm back here on the 22nd of May after my last post was on the 22nd of February wasn't planned. I am sorry for neglecting important things like this blog. I know people hardly comment on this blog but for anyone who feels hurt by my action, I do apologise.
