The pulmonologist aplogizes

I never mentioned his name in my posts about my recent hospitalization at Medical City but he somehow found out about my blog and he called to apologize. Since I was in a place with hardly any signal, I couldn't hear him well so I asked him to text me instead. This is what he said:
"I just read your blog and I called to say how very sorry I am for causing you and your husband and family and friends so much stress and worry and pain. That was not my intention at all. I understand if you don't want to speak to me but I wanted to apologize personally and also thank you for giving me feedback so I may render better service in the future. If I can make amends, please let me know."
I haven't replied simply because I really don't know what to say. On one hand, I'm okay already and it's over and done with so that's fine. In fact, when I went for my checkup a few days after my release, I pushed the incident from my mind so I can be polite and cheerful when we talked.

On the other hand, when I got his message, I became upset because I remembered what happened. I'm also wondering how he found out about my blog and I know if I talked to him, I'd ask about it and then that would mean making conversation and then I might end up becoming friendly because I'm just like that, trying to make friends with the entire world, and I just don't want to be a wuss like that so I'd really rather not talk.

But, if you're reading this, doctor, apology accepted and appreciated. 


  1. at least he found out without you having to tell him directly. :)

    in my old blog more than 3years ago i made a silly mistake of blogging about my new job and how much it sucks to be at work 6times a week. my boss found out about it, i dunno how, but she did!

    well, i didn't really say anything bad... cus they really make us work 6times a week so she just made me apologize. well embarrassing, still.

  2. That's a great apology. You should absolutely call. It will be good for both of you.

  3. at least he had the guts to say sorry....or was he just forced to do so because someone forced him to?

    well, whatever....

    im just glad that you at least got an apology from what happened. just forget not sure about forgive because if im in your position (& you know how much i wanted to have a baby sooooo much), i will never forget that...

    ok, enough about my negativity...

  4. Crickette, never blog about work, especially if negative yung susulat mo!!! =D

    WendyB, I dunno. If I weren't pregnant (read: emotional), perhaps...

    Thiamere, I'm glad there was an apology, which was quite unexpected, so okay na. Forgiven na =)

  5. i was fresh out of college... i though it was invincible!

    i learned my lesson na! hahaha! the bad way though... :P i was dumbfounded when my boss talked to me... i was like: "how the hell did she find my blog?"


Thanks for dropping by my blog! It really means a lot that you spare the time to read... and comment!
