| 10/29 - 1st party and start of tragic week (1st part)
|my highschool classmate just recently called me to inquire about my choco fountain and other party services. since the venue is just in Marikina, we got the deal.
we went to the venue around 2pm with our clowns, the choco fountain and the banner. when everything was set,
we immediately left to bring lil' boy to the hospital for a quick check-up because his cough wasn't getting any better. we planned to hear mass after the check-up. then pick-up the clowns and choco fountain after the party.
what was supposedly a quick check-up turned out to be a hospital confinement for lil' boy. he suddenly had a 38.8 fever when we arrived, quite unusual. and when his blood was checked for monitoring, my pedia called me to explain things about hemoglobin and why he wanted lil' boy to be confined to further monitor his condition. when i heard that dengue was a possibility, i immediately looked for a hospital room in the Admission. can't take the risk, i wanted him to be closely monitored.
being a dengue stage 3 survivor myself 11 years ago, i definitely know how hard, fatal and painful it is to have one. i had around 20 bags of blood transfusion, a platelet of 19, blood clots all over my arms and being confined in the ICU for a week! but well, God is good! or sadyang masamang damo lang ako, hehe.
having experienced all these, i prayed, prayed and prayed even harder that my lil' boy will be cleared from it! i texted family and friends to ask for prayers. but i intentionally didn't text my party clients to free them from worrying about my deliverables. =)
hubby went home to fetch the clowns and our party items and to get some things for the hospital confinement. so i was left with lil' boy in the emergency while waiting for our available room. mukha ngang ako yung patient coz i was lying there also sa bed while breastfeeding him. and as usual, it was such a PAIN to hear my lil' boy cry while the IV was inserted. and it took them 2 trials before they made it, kaya medyo nainis din ako.
finally, a large private room was available kaya we took it na. it was again a family bonding for the three of us. sad nga lang kasi nasa hospital kami.
10/29, monday. hubby and i didn't go to work to be with lil' boy. thanked God when his pedia visited her, his blood was A-OK. no signs of dengue whatsoever. medyo lumapot lang daw siguro yung blood nya because of the cough and fever kaya tumaas yung hemoglobin count. but when he was hydrated already, everything was back to normal. thanks to all those who prayed for us! =)
10/30, tuesday. hubby went to work. but before that, he bought breakfast for the two of us. since closed pa daw ang mga nearest fast food chains like Mc Do & Jollibee, he had no choice but to buy sa MINI STOP! he bought and ate siomai and rice. while he bought packed 2-pc BURGER STEAK for me. i ate the 1-pc burger for breakfast while lil' boy ate the hospital food around 10am na. then my parents arrived na para ayusin na ang paglabas namin ng hospital. after eating breakfast, nilalamig na ako. i thought it was just the aircon kasi super lakas. then, medyo mainit na ang pakiramdam ko at sumasakit ang katawan ko. sabi ng mama ko, baka ako naman daw ang lagnatin dahil sa pagod at puyat ko sa hospital. she even joked me na wag ko na daw bitiwan yung room at ako naman ang magpa-confine. =(
anyway, we arrived home around 2pm with the remaining 1pc Burger Steak in tow. my Dad gave it to his new Labrador puppy, and he loved it. =)
and i was still not feeling well!
