Needless to say, the Operating Room (O.R.) is a very high-tension place. Many of the things that happen there are acutely, and literally, a matter of life and death. Oftentimes, energies are in high gear, movements are very precise and well-coordinated, sequential events anticipated, instruments snapped smartly, equipment humming smoothly. Sometimes things can get harried, and a lot of things fly: sharp commands, instruments, tempers, assorted tissues and fluids. Those are really trying times that leave everybody spent and exhausted afterwards.
That is perhaps why the Operating Room is also one of the liveliest places in the hospital, where jokes, stories and food abound, to somehow lighten the gravity of the situations and conditions presented by each case. The OR workers need to chill and have some R and R!
So tomorrow, the OR people are going on an OUTing! To Robinsons Place, Dumaguete, to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken and anagon and then to watch Avatar. Yoohoo!
