My last song syndrome of the day..super tagal ko na hindi napakinggan ang kantang to’..motivation sa lahat ng mga pinoy..tandaan lage..”Dahil pag gusto mo ay kaya mo Kung kaya mo ay kaya nya At kaya nating dalawa”…kaya naten ipasa ang NCLEX RN exam…
"mga kababayan ko"
Dapat lang malaman nyo
Bilib ako sa kulay ko
Ako ay pilipino
Kung may itim o may puti
Mayron naman kayumangi
Isipin mo na kaya mong
Abutin ang yung minimithi
I. Dapat magsumikap para tayo’y di maghirap
Ang trabaho mo pagbutihin mo
Dahil pag gusto mo ay kaya mo
Kung kaya mo ay kaya nya
At kaya nating dalawa
Magaling ang atin
Yan ang laging iisipin
Pag asensyo mararating
Kung handa kang tiisin
Ang hirap at pagod sa problema
Wag kang malunod
Umaahon ka wag lumubog
Pagka’t ginhawa naman ang susunod
Iwasan mo ang ingit
Ang sa iba’y ibig mong makamit
Dapat nga ika’y matuwa sa napala ng iyong kapatid
Ibig kung ipabatid
Na lahat tayo’y kabig bisig
Repeat chorus
Respetohin natin ang ating ina
Ilaw siya ng tahanan
Bigyang galang ang ama
At ang payo nya susudan
At sa magkakapatid
Kailangan ay magmahalan
Dapat lang ay pag usapan ang hindi nauuwaan
Wag takasan ang pag kukulang
Kasalan ay panagutan
Mag malinis ay iwasan
Nakakainis marumi naman
Ang mag kaaway ipag bat
i Gumitna ka at wag kumampi
Lahat tayoy magkakapatid
Anong mang mali ay ituwid
Magdasal sa diyos maykapal
Maging banal at wag hangal

Halo skeletal traction may be used to immobilize a patient’s head and neck following a cervical fracture. Prevention of infectious reactions around the pin sites of halo traction is a priority in rehabilitation nursing practice. Although prophylactic treatment of skeletal pin sites is a generally accepted practice, there is great diversity of opinion and very limited systematic investigation as to how the sites should be treated. In this article, the author reviews the literature on pin site care and suggests a protocol based on the current literature.
