JM on being Sick: First Hospital Experience

Last Saturday my nephew got hospitalized, his platelet count was below the normal level and the physician recommends for him to be admitted at the hospital. This is the first time in his 2 years to be at the hospital ground. Sadly, when I saw his hand and took a picture of it. His father said that the nurse tried injecting the needle 12 times before the dextrose was attached but the vein is too small and so they decided to put it at his left foot.

My heart was aching to see how a little boy could survive the pain. Ultimately, JM got traumatized, when nurses or the doctor in-charge examined him, he will suddenly cry and said I’m okay, but because he is too afraid when he sees those medical practitioners without his knowledge, he urinates at his pants.

When he’s platelet count reach 302, we were advised to be discharged but the problem was he had a fever during the night and was shaking, and then the x-ray revealed that JM has bronco pneumonia. The doctor has advised to us to stay behind to be able to receive treatment for his bronco pneumonia. After a day or two the fever subsided, antibiotic for treatment is directly injected into his shoulder. So as the dextrose were removed.

I am glad that today, he got discharged from the hospital. Tomorrow he will be back at the hospital for the follow-up check up. Just hoping it will end well.

Getting to know my Niece Shevonne

Last September 09, 2011 Rhofelle Shevonne celebrated her 10th year birthday in Lupon, Davao Oriental. She went to Stella Maris Academy of Davao and transferred to Maryknoll School of Lupon. She is now an incoming Grade Five student and recognized with honors last School year. She was born in Brent London where her mom works. She was brought her at the 2 months old until now.

When she was 7 years old, she joined the Munting Mutya ng Dabaw. Apparently, she did not win the pageant but at least had experienced it. She wanted to become a flight stewardess and I hope it will be then realized.

Her 10th birthday has been very extravagant. It’s like celebrating a debut party, that’s what I thought.

Well, you can read about her from the coming articles and I will be talking about her and my other nephews as well.

Playing Time with my nephew at Zoo Safari in SM City Davao

It was the first time my nephew had been to Zoo Safari in SM City Davao. He was being astounded by the number of children around him. My nephew has turn 2 years old last February 11, 2012 and I called him nicknamed him JM short for Jayden Matthew, it was my birthday treat for him aside from the chocolate cake I bought.

He was afraid to play with other kids and he chose to stay on the side but the moment he saw a small bike he automatically rode it and drove it around the playing area. We were fascinated to see him navigate the bike.

We stayed there for almost two-hour and her wanted to stay longer but the time flew very fast and it’s almost dinner time. We need to be home in time for our simple birthday dinner for JM.
