It's a late update, but 11/8/09 is a day that I'll always remember.

I got a call from Emergency department, the place that I worked in, that there's a "meeting" to attend on 11th. It's really a big surprise. "Majlis Penghargaan Perkhidmatan Kecemasan Hosp Taiping" - specially held by a VIP, guess who?

Ya, he's the VIP that appeared in my blog long time ago - in fact, it's EXACTLY one year ago! The story began on this date but last year (his "special visit"), and also, the appreciation came few days later (in my Great day). But I really really never expected that, he'll come again after a year!

It's really good to see him again in excellent condition. He told that he recovered well after being hospitalized for 3 months! And this time he came is to "personally appreciate" those involved in his care on that day.

And he gave me an appreciation letter!
What's more, an ultrasound machine donation to the Emergency Department!

I think nothing can be more satisfying than your work is being recognized and appreciated. Although we were just doing everything that we should, when patient comes back and say thanks, it still made our day.

What a special day! ;)
