3.15pm (and the fat lady has sung.)
the last paper is done & dusted......
and although school officially is over, the learning never ends.....
but now, it's time to relax for little while........
....................where the path will next lead to..........
exams.....another love-hate relationship.

i had another dose of butterflies some weeks back.....
this was a middle-aged man with a tumour that secretes a hormone which raises the blood pressure. never in my 28 years in medical practice have i seen anyone with a blood pressure of 307/111 (!!!) until that day.
but there's always a 1st time for everything, yes?
a sudden surge in BP is never good, particularly for the brain or heart & a stroke or a heart attack is a very real threat.
to cut a long story short, the body is a wonderful machine which can withstand multiple insults & assaults & still come through largely intact.
the tumour was successfully removed after a 6-hour surgery. while the patient will probably live longer now, i fear, ironically, that my life just got cut short by at least 3 months.

this i remember from the 70s....
there was this sitcom about a Mexican family living in the US. the guy was terribly anxious about an upcoming event & he told his wife so.
"i'm having cocoons in my stomach!"
"err...you mean, you have butterflies?"
"no, cocoons....but they will be butterflies this afternoon!!"
i can understand the anxiety my daughter is going thru during the current A-level exams. some days, it even feels like i'm sitting for it!! after all, i've been doing exams after exams from primary school till varsity, & each seemed to be more important than the previous one.
& i still go thru anxiety spells at work. like today.
2-month-old kids are fun to make monkey faces at & tickle koochi-koochi, but i tell, they're no fun to give an anaesthetic to. they are so dainty.... so delicate....the margin for error is slim. one little slip &........
arrghhh....don't want to think about it...
so you can understand why, like my daughter, i've been having cocoons since early this morning.
