This is the first installment of a 3-part series of Rama's ER adventures.
Asian Hospital. Rama got a nursemaid's elbow. So-called because it's common among kids with yayas who yank them into place! At least that's how i remember the descripton. But she got it while hanging from the stair's railing. She wouldn't move it! No crying, just lack of mobility. So troop to Asian. Guess who the ER doctor is? Dr. JP, a cousin of mine. A very not-bad-looking cousin. This wasn't lost on Rama, who was charmed into raising her arm and allowing The Good Doctor to, well, re-insert the elbow in its socket. And not a word of protest from Rama. After, ang comment: gwapo niya, no? So she goes home in this sling and prescriptions for pain. And a new crush.
This goes for all her injuries - Rama is such a brave, uncomplaining child. Even when doctors say she is supposed to be hurting, all we notice is that she isn't moving the part that's injured. She will joke and play as usual. What a trooper!
