Back in Al Muwayh ... hopefully for good

After a lot of messaging and calls from the hospital director, the medical director and some big shots from the Muderiya, finally, in the afternoon, I received my release letter and have returned to my own place in Al Muwayh, to start my duties here from tomorrow, which also happens to be the first of Ramadan 1436. The last day in Zalm was the same as all the rest have been, except that I went around saying good-byes to all those whom I know. This includes most of the doctors, some of the nurses and a very few of the other workers in Zalm. I am going to miss some of them, but then, this is how life flows, does it not? 

After unpacking my bags, I cleaned a bit of my living room, shifted out the big ornamental chair and shifted in the metal bed that Dr. Afzal has been using until now ... I also brought in my new mattress and put it atop the older mattress that my colleague had been using, and finally, put a nice cover to prepare my bed. I hope to use it regularly from now on. I guess sleeping on the floor is going to be a thing of the past for me. 

I still need to re-arrange my internet and to bring in a small, used TV so that I can enjoy my evenings as usual. I will have to start cooking from tomorrow. In Ramadan, duties are not from morning until 4.30 p.m., but from 10 to 1 (in the mornings) and from 9.30 to 12.30 (in the later part of the night). Thus, I won't have to worry about taking a lunch box with me during Ramadan. I can return home and eat if I am not fasting.

And that is that. Thank you for your attention and for reading this brief but important entry. Happy Ramadan to all my friends, and hope to have you pray for me, as I will, for you.
