Ethan and I grabbed an opportunity that was presented to us. We were offered to go on an all-expense-paid Hong Kong trip! Yey! Ethan is so excited because he will finally see Disneyland. It's a protocol to secure a travel permit for a minor not traveling with a parent. Armed with the necessary birth certificate and letter of consent from his mommy, we trooped to the Department of Social Welfare and Development. The processing was a nightmare as the case worker was insistent on having Ethan's biological father sign the consent. Where is Ethan's father? Who the heck knows?! We have not seen him for the last five years, since his marriage to my daughter was annulled. So, we had to produce affidavits left and right, and so on and so forth. Finally, after two whole days of long lines, long waits and driving back and forth, I finally have Ethan's travel permit.

My next worry now is Ethan's immunization. I can't remember if his immunizations are all current. Daughter #1 said he missed a couple of booster shots but that is fine since we've all had our flu shots lately. With the swine-flu scare world wide, I guess I am not overly reacting for our health. I do take multi-vitamins but at my age and current afflictions, I think it would be wise for me to take immune system boosters pills. I read the the supplement increases an individual's immune system, increases energy and vitality. It is safe to use and anyone who has the sense to improve his health therefore extending his life span would do well to take this health supplement. A study done by Bristol-Myers Squibb K-PAX Immune Support Formula could strengthen the immune system and the results were published as a “Rapid Communication” in The Journal of AIDS in August 2006. I better ask my doctor is I could take this supplement with my current medications. Meantime, I have to think of how to pack light.
