Spending one's birthday at the parking lot of a hospital at 2:30 A.M. is bad enough. Spending two days in a hospital is worse. Yup! My son had to finally be confined in a hospital because his blood platelets were low, white blood cells low, and so was the hematocrit count. Ergo-Dengue fever.He was weak and dehydrated in spite of oral hydration.

Remember my post about my son being in Baler, Aurora when the earthquake in Chile happened? I advised (more like panicked and commanded) my son to come home then for fear of a possible tsunami on that eastern coastline town. He came home safe but it is now clear that this was not so. It seems like a Dengue mosquito was somewhere lurking about in Baler, found my son, then bit him. My son's fever started on March 5 and ended March 7. He went back to school on March 10 then came right back home that same night because of rashes that became evident.

He is fine now and I will take him back to his apartment later. I am tired. I guess the stress of everyday living gets to me at times.

Before I drive my son back to his apartment, I have yet to see to it that the air-conditioner in my son's bedroom gets to the repairman first. It conked-out. The blower stopped working. What irks me is the fact that I had some new window blinds installed two week ago and taking out the air-con for repair means the blinds have to be taken out too!

Most of the time, I feel like I am mother-father-driver-handyman-doctor-nurse-maid-tutor...and not necessarily in that order.

  1. Hay buhay parang layf talaga.

    Good to know though that 'bunsoy' is already doing well. Lintek na dengue just never know kung kelan ka tatamaan.

    Most of the time you feel all that? Maybe because you ARE all that?? Hmmm??? Can that vacation to the south [with your bro & his fam & your girls] be NOW????


  2. PS....asa ba yung magic wand ko??? Hintay lang at hahalungkatin ko sa basura ng anak ko....

  3. It's good that your bunso is alright now. Nothing is worst than having a sick kid. Buti na lang Mummy's touch always helps and heals!

  4. @ huling: hintayin ko yong magic spell mo. sa april pa yong south of the border. this time may nakita na ko dun na subdivision na dini-develop. kuha na kita ng brochure.

    @ sheng: haybuhayparanglife! minsan nakakapagod na talaga.:(
