Basta dealing with elderly citizens, sometimes they are very stubborn. Mao lagi, kai ahong lolo galing mag pa stubborn stubborn sija from time to time. When I was back home in Bohol in 2010, I took him to the Tagbilaran Community Hospital as well as Ramiro Hospital for his general check up and his peg-tube change. Since I was home, I wanted to make sure he had his medical check up and charts up-to-date. Kani lagi si lolo pa labad labad og ulo especially ug init na ba. hehe
When we were getting his medicine , I was instructing lolo's caretakers on how to give the drugs to him; when to do it , etc. Ingon pod ahong lolo , "Ah, di ko gusto mo inom ana, doy."
Ingon ko nija, "Ngano di man ka gusto mo inom ani, Lolo?"
Ingon pod sija, "Kai pait lagi, di ko mo angay ana."
Ingon baja ko, "Na, lolo, og di ka mo inom ani, mo taas imong high blood pressure, simbako , lolo, unsaon man og ma sakit ka? Ug mamatay ka , wala na ko lolo nga pinagga kaayo nako. Di na ko ka sulti nimo, ug di na ka kita nako."
Ingon gajod si lolo, "Awww, ayaw pang sulti ana, DOY. o sige, mo inom ko ko lagi."
We really have to keep aware on what they are taking, Jenneth, kai especially now galing, nga tigulang na sila, sensitive na kaayo ilang system. Ayaw'g gajod kalimta ipainom og aspirin imong papa. Imong mama pod, e-remind'a na sija na inom na ug HYPERTENSION drugs. She needs to control her hypertension.
