Masheng just came back from another check up. I got a bit worried awhile ago because we have noticed that some mild rashes are starting to appear on her skin. I didn't think twice and asked my mom and my sister to bring her to the hospital right away for another CBC since I was worried that she was having one of the symptoms of Dengue.
While at home, I was preparing myself for some bad news. Naiiyak ako sa pag aalala but I have to remind myself to relax and be strong. From time to time, mom was updating me kung anong nangyayari sa hopsital. Hinahanap daw ako ni Masheng. It was sad that I couldn't be with her at that moment but I couldn't wait for my working time to be over bago sya ma check ulit. I wasn't even able to ask for Joms' opinion and decision (who was still at work) since matatagalan pa kung ite text ko pa sya at tatanungin kung dapat bang dalhin si Masheng sa hospital or not (though I texted him after Masheng left).
Paranoid nga siguro ako since wala namang iba pang symptoms but I couldn't risk my baby's safety. I think those rashes and her fever last week are just enough reasons to worry. I've been researching about Dengue din naman kasi since she got sick last Tuesday.
Actually, magaling na sya since Friday pa. No fever and any other symptoms within the last 4 days. Her first 2 CBC results were also ok. Akala ko nga eh, hindi na talaga kami mag aalala pa, until 'yun nga, the rashes appeared today. I was almost sure that it was Dengue na nga talaga.
But thank God her platelet count didn't drop (nag increase pa nga.). Yun agad ang una kong tiningnan when they got home. Now we're finally sure that it isn't Dengue. Viral lang daw sabi ng doctor. Makakahinga na kami nang maluwag.
Hopefully, that would be her last hospital visit. Nata trauma na rin kasi sa needles and doctors si Masheng ko (3 times ka ba namang kunan nang dugo in less than a week). When she got home nga kanina, mangiyakngiyak na pinakita sa akin 'yung tip ng finger nya na tinusok para makunan sya nang dugo. I just kissed her and told her how brave she was. Haay, kung pwede lang na ako na lang ang magpakuha nang blood for her.
Buti na lang talaga at ok na sya. She has been doing good naman since last Friday pa. Hyper at makulit na ulit. Sana tuloy tuloy na...
Thanks for all those who prayed and wished her well. Thanks din to my mom, my dad, my aunts and my sisters for always being there for my baby.
