Tsikiting Gubat and her Fil-am Boyfriend - Journey to Life Part 2

Dear insansapinas,
Yesterday was my appointment with another specialist. He gave the fourth opinion. Normally only second opinion is needed and a few hundreds of pages of laboratory results. Knowing me, pasaway ang makulit, I have to be sure.(Whisper: Pero huwag ka, still hoping na nagkamali sila, ehek).

I saw people having chemo on my way to the small laboratory. American Cancer Society adopted colors for each cancer disease. Inside one room were three gossiping ladies with pink pillows to hug. That must be breast cancer. No yellow ribbon for liver cancer. Ginamit kasi sa campaign sa Pinas. hehehe. I guess you do not know.

I have already scheduled my ride but my tsikiting gubat, the one who's taking up her MBA in SF flew in with her Fil-am boyfriend. So they accompanied me to the doctor and hospital. My brother is out of town for a presentation. 

I met the Fil-am BF a year ago when they visited me. But I forgot that he can not understand Tagalog. Kunti lang. (Yon lang kumain ka na? ). 

He also does not know that when I tease my tsikiting gubats, I am poker-faced and serious. No emotion.

So I was talking about my plan. I told my daughter that I have already drawn up a power of attorney and will.

In the will, I am bequeathing her, $ 1.99. hehehe.

The boyfriend's brows were knitted. My tsikiting gubat was smiling. He could not understand a word of what I am saying. They migrated in the US when he was still a toddler. Pwedeng ipagbili. $ 1.00.

So nose bleed ako. (joking). I have to speak in English.

The specialist referred me to the hospital for a compehensive blood works. AGAIN. In preparation for another appointment with another specialist he wanted me to see.

In the admitting section, it was a Filipina who got all my papers/insurance, blah blah. She asked me of my nationality. I know she is a Filipina. May hepa siya. Naninilaw ang kaniyang mga ginto. 

But she is friendly.
Hindi raw akong mukhang Pinay kasi tapos ang apelyido ko ay American. 

Nalokah na naman ang aking tsikiting gubat kasi nagsasalita kami ng Tagalog. :) So translate na naman sha. O di va yan ang gusto ng gumawa ng PiLIPINAS, kay Gandah ko. Sabi ng Pinay na  ipagdadasal daw niya ako habang kinakabitan ako ng name tag. Taka , ako bakit niya  nalaman. OO nga pala, naka leak na sa computer from my doctors . Hindi nga lang WIKI LEAKS.
