HENRY - MICHIGAN, USA
1. ANO ANG MASASABI MO SA TRABAHO MO NGAYONG MAY COVID-19 BILANG FRONTLINER?
Work is harder and more dangerous. I drive to patients’ homes for their Physical Therapy Treatment. Now that there is COVID-19, not only I face the dangers of driving on the road from patient to patient, I now face the risk of being exposed to patients that might have been exposed or is infected by it.
Patients are also reluctant and are afraid to be seen for treatment because some of them think that we as clinicians may also be exposed to the virus as we also see other patients. So, some patients would cancel their schedule Physical Therapy visit.
2. SAAN KA HUMUHUGOT NG INSPIRASYON?
I get inspiration from the Lord and from His word in the Bible. I take hold on His word not to fear for the LORD my God that goes with me/us never leave me/us nor forsake me/us.
I trust God that He has given me this gift of becoming a Physical Therapist to help others and as the Bible instructs us to do everything with our whole being for the Lord (Col 3:23) and so I do.
3. ANO YUNG EXPERIENCE MO NA HINDI MAKAKALIMUTAN SA TRABAHO HABANG KASAGSAGAN NG COVID-19?
This is an unprecedented experience for me. Never in my 17 years as a Physical Therapist would have to work with a patient wearing full PPE.
4. ANO YUNG GUSTO MO SABIHIN SA MGA KASAMA MO NA FRONTLINER NA LUMALABAN SA COVID-19?
Well, all I can say is that we are all in the same boat here. We in the Home Health side of Healthcare tries to prevent people from getting sick or having injury that can end them up at hospital; and to my fellow healthcare workers who are bravely facing the virus, head on...
People may not see the hard work, dedication and sacrifices that we do but our God who is in control and all-knowing, sees everything and will reward you according to His gracious will. Keep on and hope that one day when we meet God, He may say 'Well done my good and faithful servant' as He welcomes us for the work we do here and now.
5. ANO ANG GUSTO MONG IPAALALA SA MGA TAO NA NAKAKABASA NG MESSAGE MO NGAYON?
These times are tough, there is no doubt about that. But have faith in God who is in control. The Bible says: and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14. So in this time of quarantine and lockdown, let us take this opportunity to confess our sins, repent and seek the Lord and He WILL heal our land. May God bless you all and protect you and your families.
