Teringat sorang makcik one of my patients in ED the other night. She was 92. Independant, no walking aids for ambulation. Dia admitted to short stay in ED coz for observation & for wound care with hospital in the home (HITH) review in a.m. Dia naik bas, then bas tu break, then sorang lagi besar dari dia jatuh atas dia. No broken bones. Tapi ada large subdermal haematoma on the medial of middle third of this right leg. We tried to drain it overnight tapi tak berjaya & tak berani nak make a larger incision than 1cm takut its actually deeper than superficial skin.
Anyways, I'm sure she's okay now. That's not what I wanted to tell here anyways. Aku kagum how she was very fit & healthy, sharp & alert in mind, despite she was almost 100 yrs old. She only took aspirin & few tablets for blood pressure & cholesterol, which semua org ada diseases ni once u reach above 50. I am hoping myself & those I love will be like this, sihat ke akhir hayat & tak terseksa menghabiskan sisa-sisa hidup.
