I’m sick of being sick!
It’s been a while since I last posted a personal update about me here. I wonder if someone out there misses me (etchos). Ren and I were sick these past few days. Last week it was Ren and now it’s my turn.
Ren had a fever for 3 days last week, usually I wait for 3 days before I bring him to his pedia especially if he is not having any signs of cough or colds or showing any weakness. He had a fever but he is still his usual energetic and always hungry self. Napapadalas lang yung tulog. Saka yung lagnat nya hindi tuloy tuloy, yung mawawala sa umaga tapos babalik sa gabi.
But when it kept occurring for 3 days, I decided to text his pedia and asked for an appointment. The pedia told me to have his blood checked (in case it was Dengue). He had a CBC and platelet count. The results was okay.
Okay in terms that the platelet was within the normal range although his Hemoglobin is lower daw. His pedia told me to repeat the CBC if ever he will have a fever again after 2 days plus she asked me to have him undergo the Dengue test. Kasi naman the signs of Dengue is different na din ngayon. Saka wala kasing makitang ibang reason ‘bat sya nilalagnat.
The next day, he had a nose bleed, kaya kahit hindi sya nilalagnat tumakbo na kami sa ospital for the dengue test. We were so happy that the result was negative.
Now, with the help of my mom, we went to the doctor for a check up. Allergic ako sa doctor, kasi hindi naman talaga ako sakitin. Ayaw ko lang talaga ng doktor, natatakot ako sa kanila. My blood pressure has been checked and it was 90/70, ang baba. Well, normal sa amin yan on my side of the family.
The doctor gave me some medicines para sa pananakit ng dibdib and Vitamin B-Complex para sa bara daw sa ugat. She also asked me to have an ECG to check my heart. I told my mom that I want to drink the medicine first before I do the ECG kasi nga natatakot ako na kung ano lumabas u.
I don’t like to be sick, I can’t do the things that I need to do. I’m glad that my husband is a work at home dad who can always be there if I need him. Paano na lang kung nasa abroad sya or asa office tapos bigla ako mawalan ng malay, e dalawa lang kaming mag-ina sa bahay.
I’m also blessed to have a mom like no other. She is already a senior citizen pero mas malakas pa katawan sa’kin.
So, mommies mahirap magkasakit kaya wag natin abusuhin katawan natin. If you need to rest, then rest….
School opening is near so we need to prepare our body for this, our family needs us.
