A Healthy Heart II

I've been keeping all my fingers crossed since 1pm today because at this moment Uncle Herbert is inside the surgery room of the Holy Spirit Northside Hospital in Brisbane, QLD. I presume the cardiologist-surgeon has already gained access to my uncle's heart, and must be currently implanting the artificial cardiac pacemaker.

Amidst this complex situation, my aunt has still managed to maintain her composure. She told me that she'd already entrusted everything to the medical doctors and above all to the Almighty. She's not 'taking the fact to her own heart' that Valentine's Day is coming, and that Uncle Bert's 'centre of love' could be slightly mutilated and would eventually affect his emotions on February 14.

-February 12, 2008


Undeniably, there are men and women out there whose hearts are relatively healthy yet their love is severely and acutely ill! I believe I don’t need to explain further about this because most (if not all) of us know what a broken heart means.

A Valentine's card through the Post, a Valentine greeting via SMS, a Valentine chat using the internet, a Valentine dinner in a cozy restaurant, or a Valentine gift will surely fill the land, the air, and the seas in the next couple of days.

...and what can we expect from February 15, 2009 to February 13, 2010?

How I wish I could hold the spirit of Valentine’s Day in my heart every single day. I pray that every day I could show my love to those who love (or even to those who never love) and care for me. With this, I don’t think I still need to bother myself about catching the perfume sale, waiting in queue to buy blocks of chocolates, finding despite the limited supply of the best red roses or enduring the discomfort of dialling my mobile phone amidst the busy network during the so-called Valentine’s Day.

I believe that throughout the year it is worthwhile to take the best care not only of my own heart but of my loved ones’ hearts, as well. Aside from eating a balanced diet and having a regular exercise to maintain a healthy anatomical and physiological heart, a daily nurturing of each other’s emotional and figurative heart is equally very important. After all, our heart’s health is our real wealth.


Three days ago, I sent an SMS to Auntie Chris in Queensland asking how Uncle Bert with his artificial cardiac pacemaker is doing. She replied:

...so far, so good! The pacemaker has been performing very well. The next regular check-up will be on October this year. Thanks God!

Well, it’s so nice to know that for exactly a year today the artificial cardiac pacemaker has been working effectively for Uncle Bert; and I believe their love for each other has been getting stronger!

Love, indeed, isn’t just all about how it started; it is how we keep it healthy and above all, it is how we sustain it until the ‘end...’

Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

The normal average heartbeat of a chicken is 282 every minute; chicks have 400 heartbeats per minute, and humans only have 60-100 heartbeats in a minute!

Well said bro. Natauhan ako ha. Am lucky pa rin that I still surrounded of LOVE. Good to hear your uncle is okay and getting stronger after the operation. Tama ang mga sinasabi.

Kunejo said...

happy valentines down under.

naalala ko bigla. napanuod ko last week yung love me again dito sa dubai. eh di ba parts non were shot in aussie..akala ko nga nandon ka doc eh, kaso baka yung nasa rancho di manok! hehehe

Mr. Thoughtskoto said...

happy hearts day Doc AgaRJ!

I like this part: "Undeniably, there are people out there whose heart is very healthy yet their love is severely and acutely ill!"

May we reach out to them, not just this season where we celebrate the love we receive and give love to those who needs it, but all throughout the year. Its easier said than done. I echo your call RJ, a little comment there, a little visit and reading someone's blog, a short hi or hello, or email or call or sms to someone we know who might give joy and happiness to someone will be noble act.

I am happy that your Uncle Bert is doing well. It's not the kind of heart that throbs in us, it is the kind of love that emanates from that heart...

opps, napahaba, parang isang entry na, tsoriii. hehe

=supergulaman= said...

...yey! tama..tama!...hindi lang usapang pagmamahal dapat pati pangkalusugan..galing ...

A-Z-E-L said...

good thing uncle bert is well & safe.

isa din akong magmamanok... un nga lang, tanging ang pagpatay sa mga manok ang naobserbahan ko. hindi ko alam kung pano sila mabuhay! pero alam na alam ko pano sila i-hang sa conveyor at gilitan ng mga slitter na muslim!

maligayang araw ng mga puso!

RJ said...

REDLAN
Ayan, sa wakas pumasa na naman ulit itong aking isinulat sa puso't panlasa ng isang taong mapagmahal sa Sining. Salamat, Red.


KUNEJO
Ito na nga siguro ang Valentine's Day post ko, parang wala naman kasi akong maikwento na.

Kumusta ang Pride of Dubai?

LOVE ME AGAIN. Buti may mga napapanood kayo diyang mga bagong Filipino movies ano? Nakikita ko nga sa TFC ang trailer nito. Kailan ko kaya 'to mapapanood? Di mo ba alam na kwento ko 'yong isinadula nila? Hahaha! JOKE!


MR. THOUGHTSKOTO
"It's not the kind of heart that throbs in us, it is the kind of love that emanates from that heart..." MAGANDA itong sinabi niyo ah. Parang gusto kong ilagay sa dulo nitong post ko. U


SUPERGULAMAN
Yes, health is wealth daw. Kahit ang isang superhero dapat malusog din ang puso, ha. o",)


A-Z-E-L
Wow! Sa dressing plant pala kayo nagta-trabaho?!


SARDONYX
Dapat talaga palaging in love. May hula ka na ba para sa darating na Valentine's Day para sa akin?


MARCOPAOLO
Oo nga. Medyo mahina siya ngayon pero nakaka-support naman ng maayos ang kanyang artificial cardiac pacemaker.


KOSA
Sana, sana...

Happy Valentine's Day rin bro. Kumusta kaya ang magiging Valentine's Day mo dyan sa Canada? Nagpakita na ba si Prinsesa, o nagparamdam man lang?

Tulad mo, na isang vegetarian, very healthy heart talaga palagi. Sana kaya ko rin ang ganyan.

lucas said...

Good thing your Uncle is out of the woods now :)

people have healthy hearts but i guess, there are just hurts that go beyond the physical.

happy valentines day, mate.

thanks for the comment, RJ :)

PaJAY said...

MAGALING! DOK..

para akong nagbabasa ng isang artikulo ng "HEALTH" magazine...ang mas malufeet lang dito sa post mo Dok.pinagsabay mo na pati pagbati mo....

High Five Dok...(",)

Fjordan Allego said...

ayos ah,, talagang trivial pa rin.. humabol sa dulo ang trivia sa heartbeat ng mga manok! hahaha

Happy Valentine's kuya RJ!

bertN said...

How long does the pacemaker's battery of your Uncle last? Does he need to undergo an operation to replace the battery? I should not be asking you these stupid questions...Happy Valentine's na lang sa iyo.

Roland said...

doc na doc talaga... very informative!!! ...at isiningit talaga sa huli yung sa chicken, hahaha.

Desert Aquaforce said...

okidokidoks talaga...like Kenji gustong-gusto ko ung banat mong:
"Undeniably, there are men and women out there whose hearts are relatively healthy yet their love is severely and acutely ill!"

Isn't that ironical? That was a similar message of Nebz' blog on Val and Tina.

Anyhow, wishing ur Uncle Herbert a fast recovery and healing.

Matanong nga? Pwede ba nating gamiting pacer ung heartbeat ng "chicks" na 400hpm para ma sustain ung heartbeat nating 60-100hpm? Hahaha...

Have a Happy Vday with your "chicks"!

homebodyhubby said...

Whew! Parang hanggang ngayon ay may sakit ka pa ring dala-dala.


PAJAY
Thank you. Naging health mag na ngayon itong blog ko. Hahaha! o",)


FJORDAN ALLEGO
Inihabol ko para naman kahit medyo paulit-ulit nalang ang tema at mensahe ng post kong ito, may makukuha naman kahit kaunti ang mga nagbabasa rito sa The CMQuill.

Happy Valentine's Day rin sa iyo. U

Kumusta ang Espanya?


DESERT AQUAFORCE
Naku, sa sobrang busy, hindi ko pa po nadalaw ang Isla de Nebz. Magbabasa pa po ako mamayang gabi.

Kung pwede nga lang po sanang gamitin ang puso nitong mga sisiw pam-pacemaker, ano? Hahaha!


HOMEBODYHUBBY

BlogusVox said...

I'm glad, your Uncle is okay. Pero mas okay yung sinabi mo tungkol sa "pusong bato".

Kaya doc, maghanap-hanap ka na rin, o di kaya kung meron na, huwag mo nang pakawalan. Para manatiling "malambot yang puso mo". : )

RJ said...

ABE MULONG CARACAS
Kaya ko ba?! Kung kaya ko, kaya mo, at kaya rin nating lahat! Kapag ganito ang mangyayari, napakasaya ng buong mundo! (,"o

Happy Valentine's...


PAPERDOLL
Hindi pinalitan ang puso ng Uncle ko, Paperdoll. Nilagyan lang ng baterya para titibok palagi. Parang ganu'n ang pinaka-simpleng paliwanag du'n.

Kumusta ang Valentine's Day mo?


BLOGUSVOX
Whew! May nakita na po, hinuhuli pa lang. Babalitaan ko po kayong lahat dito kapag mahuli ko na po. o",)

Nebz said...

Happy valentine RJ.

Nakakatabang puso naman ang post mo (pero isingit daw b talaga ung tungkol sa puso ng manok!). I chuckled when I read it.

Dalangin ko'y mahuli mo na nga ang itinitibok ng iyong puso.

chubskulit said...

RJ said...

NEBZ
Sana, sana po. Hahahaha!

Nakakatawa po ba ang tungkol sa puso ng manok?! Hahaha! Isiningit ko po 'yon para naman may mapulot dito sa post kong ito kasi ang mga mensahe tungkol sa kwentong pag-ibig ay paulit-ulit lang.


CHUBSKULIT
Thanks, Chubskulit! U


WINKII
Salamat sa pagdalaw, Winkii. Okay sige dadalawin kita sa blog mo, parang ang dami mong blogs. Tatlo ba?


ISHNA PROBINSYANA
Oo nga, extra sweet, super sweet nga ang mga tao kapag Valentine's Day.

Thanks to the modern technology.

Ganu'n nga kabilis ag tibok ng puso ng mga manok, halos tatlong beses ang bilis nito kaysa sa mga tao.


JOSH OF ARABIA
Thanks, AJ. Kumusta ang Velentine's Day mo?

----
Ayos na ayos ang tulang ginawa mo, matatalo pa 'ata si Balagtas du'n. Sana ang photo na ipinaskil mo ay 'yong magkasama kayo ni Mahal mo. Parang malungkot tingnan kasi nag-iisa lang siya.

KRIS JASPER said...

All About Hearts!

I lost my mum coz of "her heart condition". It's something I wouldnt wish for anyone to have.

I wish that you and all your loved ones (esp your uncle) will have a healthy and long life.
