Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Patient"

The meaning of "Patient" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa I can't be patient
pulling up in this spaceship (a person stops inside the spaceship?😂)

A: First of all, these are two lines: “I can’t be patient,” “(I’m) pulling up in my spaceship.” “To pull up” in this case means to approach in a vehicle, e.g. “I’m pulling up to your house, do you see my car?”
Q: O que significa A patient's blood pressure has gone up, so the doctor wants to adjust the medication. And the doctor says,"I wanna go up on the low tenths and only do one pill twice a day." What does the doctor mean??
A: It's difficult for me to answer that because I'm not a medical professional. But in general to go up by tenths would mean increase a number by 0.1. Low tenths sounds like it might be a multiple of 0.1, but I don't think it would be as high as 0.5. So it might be an increase of 0.2, 0.3, maybe even 0.4. The reason I don't think it would be 0.5 is because he said "low" and once you get to half or greater that no longer seems "low".
Q: O que significa "patients become promiscuous"?
A: Promiscuous is an adjective- It means someone or something is having sexual relationships or immoral actions.
So for example- "It is not uncommon for patients to become promiscuous with their doctors"
Means that it is not uncommon for patients to have immoral or sexual relationships with their doctors.

I hope this makes sense.
Q: O que significa giving a patient welcome news?
A: Tell a sick person good news
Q: O que significa We will be patient.?
we will wait.

A: Technically, "attend to" would be "to take care of" and "attend" is "to be present at." Thus, "attend to patients" is more correct, and "attend patients" would be less correct. That being said, native English speakers use both terms.

I've been in hospitals many times and have heard doctors using both terms: "I have to attend to patients now," or "I must attend patients."

My advice is to stick with "attend to," in this context; however, both terms are used by native English speakers. ^^

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? patient
Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? i am a patient and considerate person. I love kids. Playing piano is my major.Can you help me correct my words, make it sound natural.
The only real grammar problem here is that the shortness of the sentences make them sound choppy and unnatural.

Two simple changes:
"I am a patient and considerate person who loves kids. Piano playing is my major."

"who" combines two short sentences into one decent-sized sentence.

Playing piano = verb (can't be your major)
Piano playing = noun (can be your major)

The only other suggestion I have is to look at the connection between your ideas here: you being patient and considerate (which relates to loving kids, because you HAVE to be patient and considerate to get along with them haha), and piano playing being your major. What's the connection between these ideas? How can you make that connection clearer, to keep it from reading like you're jumping one from topic to an entirely different one :)
