If there’s anything you learn in this process, it’s that you’ve got to learn to roll with the punches. For the most part, I want to think that I’m a pretty flexible person. But I can’t say everything is always easy to accept right off the bat. Sometimes there’s a period of adjustment, acceptance, and even resignation.
This journey comes with a built-in roller coaster ride of highs and lows. You just have to manage through the waves. Sometimes easier said than done.
This past week has provided much of that with misinformation, mishaps, scheduling changes and even end results that could have been avoided if proper attention was given.
Due to a couple admitted errors on the hospital’s part, yesterday’s procedure was rescheduled from last week, an additional procedure had to be done today (as a result of yesterday’s mistake), and Samar was readmitted ahead of schedule. So we are back to hospital life. It’s frustrating the emotions and effort that go into it all when it could have been avoided.
But alas, when all is said and done, you can’t cry over spilled milk. All you can do is deal with the present situation in front of you and move forward as best as you can.
