#22 A Nurse’s Instinct


The first time I came across this blog I knew immediately that I would want to follow myowncalcuttablog.com. I found her blog title quite interesting and after I read her first post “In the Beginning“. I instantly became a fan. There was just so much we have in common. I love volunteering, I started a medical mission in college, I’m passionate about altruism and RAK. I wish more people will be inspired to do these things.

Well, one “Starfish” at a time… 😉 Thanks for sharing, myowncalcutta. I love your blog!

The other one left to fetch lunch. Priorities. Giselle waited until everyone requiring lab work had been taken care of before the lab tech could perform an EKG on her. She didn’t mind waiting. She’s good that way.

I wondered why Giselle hadn’t returned. To pass the time, I read and deleted…
