Eid Mubarak

My four-year combo of posting Eid cards online has now ended with the coming of clerkship. (I barely even have time to write anything of significance here.)

While I have to admit I haven’t been using this Ramadan the best way I could (and should), I still hope for forgiveness - for I realize I had only sinned more especially during this rotation.

I sincerely wish I would still live to see the next Ramadan and have it the best way I can - unlike this year.

And, all praises to Allah, D&V is over and cometh Radiology next month.

Eid Mubarak to all.

Doxorubicin is a drug used in cancer chemotherapy. it works by intercalating DNA, with the most serious adverse effect being life-threatening heart damage. It is commonly used in the treatment of a wide range of cancers. Doxorubicin is commonly used to treat some leukemias and Hodgkin’s lymphoma, as well as cancers of the bladder, breast, stomach, lung, ovaries, thyroid, soft tissue sarcoma, multiple myeloma, and others. The most dangerous side effect of doxorubicin is cardiomyopathy, leading to congestive heart failure. The incidence of this cardiomyopathy is dependent on its cumulative dose. There are several ways in which doxorubicin is believed to cause cardiomyopathy, including oxidative stress, downregulation of genes for contractile proteins, and p53 mediated apoptosis.

I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.
