When Miggy Got Sick

Last Tuesday, June 10, 2014, I brought Miggy to the hospital for check-up. He had constant diarrhea and bouts of vomiting since Saturday, June 7, 2014. I got scared he might fall into dehydration and will need intravenous therapy. Well, my gut feeling was confirmed when the doctor told me that he is already in moderate dehydration. 

IV insertion was an ordeal for my little boy. He got a total of 14 unsuccessful IV insertion attempts but they just could not found any good vein. Once they're in, the site would just bulge and infiltration happens. We resorted to oral rehydration, Pedialyte, to replenish lost electrolytes. His other medications include Erceflora and Immuzinc.

We got discharged yesterday and he was diagnosed with Acute Gastroenteritis with Moderate Dehydration. Right now, he's feeding properly and sleeping a lot. Maybe because he is still recuperating from dehydration.

Ate Gabs and Ate Mika already cried with him while the doctors are trying to get an IV inserted.

You haven't seen the rest of needle marks here, but he's so tired that he doze off to sleep after each insertion.

Drinking Pedialyte (apple flavor) while Tatay is trying to calm him down.

First Day High

Today is the first day of school and Mika is about to embark to a whole new schooling experience. In preparation for this big day, my husband and I woke up at 5AM, cooked her baon (seared liempo and rice), and made her breakfast (Energen drink).

Personally, I am quite nervous because everything will be new for her. New school, new teachers, new classmates, and she's not yet comfortable in speaking Tagalog. Plus, she gets to commute too in going home since her dismissal time is very early for her Tatay to pick her up. We instructed her how to ride the jeepney and even told her what to say to the driver. Hayyyyy....the whole day I can't get my mind straight thinking of her day at school and her plight of riding the jeepney for the first time all by herself.

At the end of the day, she reported that she gained new friends and she was able to introduce herself in class. I'm glad and thankful that she made it through the first day. I hope that all is well for her throughout the schoolyear.
