Injured - Part 1

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!

What a small world!! JP is a very very old friend of mine ( classmate in CSA for as long as I can remember also). I miss him and Boogie big time!

The world is a golf ball. No, holen. JP has migrated to the US. So augustinian ka rin pala. I'm sure you know the lyrics of don't cry for me argentina by heart. ha ha!

Ha, diba Australia? I'm confused! But then that's normal for me, im always confused. :)

And yes, I do know that by heart! Why nga ba? hehe You know what you look super familiar, weren't you on the volleyball varsity?

Yes, I was volleyball varsity in grade school, had zero athletic life in high school (as i went to nerdsville Manila Science) then volleyball again in college.
And you're not confused, I am - JP nga is in Australia. His fault: for a while, he was planning to migrate and practice in the Bahamas! So he's magulo. Haha. (How convenient to blame the other person who's not here, no? :-))
