How To Save A Life – By A Neonatology Intensive Care Unit Physician

I am a Neonatologist. I am a doctor who works with newborn babies. Most of my work is inside an Intensive Care Unit with fragile prems, sick babies struggling to breathe and monitors beeping all around me. As usual, today I saved a lot of lives I return home, unmask, shower and plonk down onto my sofa with my overjoyed daughter. With a twisted smile on my face, I think about all the lives I’ve saved today. My deft fingers, practised hands, quick thinking brain and tireless feet have once again given a second life to many…. and all that within those 12 hours that started as I skipped down 5 flights of stairs from my home and ended when…

My Coffee Habit – Level 2020

Have I crossed the limit with my coffee habit? Dope Coffee: Dark Matter – Anti Gravity Blend. This is what the coffee bean cover tells me:Instead of boring you with some generic copy, here’s the real deal We just really love coffee, man. We’re obsessed with finding the most amazing beans, roasting them fresh and sending them your way every day, just so that when you take that first sip, your eyes light up and you go “Damn. That’s some Dope Coffee.” And this is the description on the website: Our gravity-defying five bean house blend is mad chocolatey and super nutty. Smooth as a shot and strong enough to hold its grounds against anything you throw at it, Dark…

A Bloggable Sunday Lunch Addendum

Old fashioned Uraindha Kozhi Vedikkiradhu I made for lunch – cooked by Aazhamaana Porichals in traditional Ottaadha Paathiram. Kids enjoyed the frozen chicken pops deep fried in an old non stick pan. (I won’t take credit for the ketchup – we just squeezed out some from a bottle into a silicone green cupcake liner.)

The Coffee Journey

My deviation from the instant coffee route started when I accidentally bought filter coffee powder instead of instant coffee powder during the final stages of my bachelorhood in Trichy. I was forced to buy a South Indian filter and tried putting everything everywhere to brew some coffee – I drank whatever theĀ  random positioning of the 3 parts of the filter, the coffee powder and hot water produced. All that changed when I surprised myself with a Breville coffee machine with a grinder for our 5th wedding anniversary. Suddenly pressing buttons produced the weirdest sounds and the nicest coffee. Pouring out the frothed milk was an art and soon I realised why I was never destined to be an artist….

Waters Turn Red – But It’s Not Biblical

A recent tweet created a small frenzy on the internet for a while. The Etobicoke Creek in Canada had red water flowing in it and the video captured by hikers was quite dramatic. @CP24 @CTVToronto Hi the Etobicoke Creek is all red??? pic.twitter.com/M3i1qvtAyW — the meatagain of my neighborhood (@adamcarson0205) March 24, 2020 The responses immediately warned people of end times and tied in recent events to create Biblical prophecy theories. However it turns out this red water was a result of 400 litres of red dye / ink that had spilt into the creek from a company. Peel Public Works clarified about this in a tweet Approximately 400L of red ink was spilled into the Etobicoke Creek. The Ministry…

Hectic

Hectic.Need a break.Thought of trekking up College hill and staring quietly at the sunset with my arms wide open, after work today.“Don’t do it”, they told me.“Why?” I asked puzzled.“You’ll get arrested” “Why?”. I was confused.“Because someone will think you are staging a silent protest” 2020 has just started.

Walk on Water

Kids dish out the deepest of theologies when you try to crack a joke at them. During the KPTR Christmas program, rains played havoc but we still managed to pull it off. The kids loved it because they could splash along in the puddles as the program went on. There was this one long puddle that they kept running on. I caught one of them (about 7 years old) and said, “You can’t walk on water. Only Jesus can!” I was sure he’d laugh and enjoy this joke. He gave me a piercing look. “I can walk on this puddle. But if there were waves and wind, only Jesus could walk.” I accepted defeat!
