HOW TO CARE FOR A SICK PATIENT

Have you ever thought about how you can care for a sick patient? Or how you can contribute to a patient’s journey through life (or just for a season)? If you haven’t, it’s okay, because now you can. You see, I was writing about my thoughts on sickness, prayer and healing one day (which I will share in another post) when I made this acronym on the spot. And from this acronym, I came up with the way you can help a sick patient. Whether the patient is a good friend, or a family member, or someone new at school/work/church… this P.A.T.I.E.N.T. acronym applies to all. Here’s how to care for a sick patient. How To Care For A Sick Patient P Pray for the patient. Praying for the patient is the first thing you should do before doing anything else. And you want to do this in your own

FATHER’S DAY 2020 (CHURCH ONLINE) – OUR HEAVENLY FATHER

I’m not sure why, but unlike a lot of countrie (Or is it all countries?) Father’s Day in Australia is in September, and this year it was on the 6th of September… This year I had the chance to share a short and powerful testimony about my Heavenly Father and although at first I wasn’t going to put it on a blog post, today I just decided to do it. So without any further words, here is the transcript (If you’d like to watch the video instead, you can click here and begin at 14:20.). Father’s Day 2020 (Church Online) – Our Heavenly Father  ***The transcript below is transcribed by the Otter app so if the full stops or commas or whatever are not quite right it’s because of the app*** Before I begin I want to say thanks to Ps. Kenny for asking me to share my story today

2 VERY IMPORTANT BENEFITS OF BEING SICK

Before I begin I must mention that when I use the word ‘sick’ I am talking about sicknesses (or disabilities) like, Alagille Syndrome, or any other chronic illnesses such as cancer, cystic fibrosis, coronary heart disease, cone-rod dystrophy… the list goes on and on, and in other letters of the alphabets too. While there are a lot of negatives to being sick, there are 2 very important benefits of being sick. At the top of my head one thing that I can think of is the trip to USA in 2012 – thanks to Make-A-Wish Australia my family and I were able to experience LA, Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills and more! It was the trip that I will never forget, but besides getting that wish granted the more important benefits of being sick (or disabled) are much more meaningful. I know that the 2 very

28 SPECIFIC THINGS I’M THANKFUL FOR

So, if I didn’t do my math wrongly, I will be 28 years old in 2 weeks and 3 days (you can check my about page to see if I did my math correctly), and since I’m turning 28 I thought I would type the 28 things that I am thankful for. As an Alagille Syndrome patient, these past 28 years have been nothing but a roller coaster ride of uPS and DOWns… Okay, I know people without Alagille Syndrome has ups and downs too, but when I say up and down I REALLY mean up and down, emotionally, physically, mentally, socially, spiritually… After going through so many, and different sorts of, seasons in my 28 years of life there are some specific things that I want to thank my Good Good Father for. So in no particular order, here I go. Thanking God For The Most Basic Things In

BLOOD TRANSFUSION, IRON INFUSION AND HYSTEROSCOPY – MY HYSTEROSCOPY STORY

Hi there! Welcome to my second post from my new blog – a blog on hospital life, patient life and Christian life – in today’s post I want to share my hysteroscopy story. What Is A Hysteroscopy? To find out what is a hysteroscopy you can read more about it here but basically hysteroscopy is a short procedure done by a physician to examine the uterus. My Hysteroscopy Story The Blood Loss Begins It started on a Wednesday, when I was bleeding a little. Then, on Thursday, the bleeding came even more and I started to feel a little lightheaded and tired, but, I was still able to do some work on my Mac. On Friday, I was fried. Okay maybe not fried, but I was feeling worse than Thursday. I was even more lightheaded and this time I couldn’t use my computer anymore. I just couldn’t concentrate or focus

HOW WAS IT LIKE TO BE IN HOSPITAL DURING CORONAVIRUS – HOSPITAL IN COVID TIME

Before I share how it was like to be in hospital during coronavirus, and 5 things to know when staying in hospital in covid time, I want to give you a short back story, but don’t worry, if you don’t want to read the back story you can just jump right ahead to the next subheading, ‘Hospital In Covid Time’ 🙂 Back Story In my almost 28 years of hospital life and patient life I have never ever been hospitalised without my mum and not to mention go into surgery myself. When I was an the children’s hospital my mum would stay with me and when I was at the adult’s hospital, before coronavirus, my mum would come to the hospital in the day time and leave in the night time, but this time, there was no such thing as visitors. So it was a solo hospitalisation. Now that you’ve
