Health is Wealth


It seems that 2013 is not a good year for me with regard to my health because since January I’ve been a regular visitor of hospital due to psoriasis, UTI and last Friday, I was back again because of acute gastritis.

Last Thursday, I know something is wrong with me because I can feel pain in my stomach but still I accompanied my son in tutor class and school and finished my household chores. After dinner, my stomach pain was more intense and my husband was convincing me to go to the hospital. But I refused because I don’t want to go back to the hospital again. I took Mallox thinking that it was just hyperacidity and I tried to sleep.

The following morning, I can still feel pain but I was still in denial and thinking that it was just a stomach ache or diarrhea. So my husband left for work and I was doing my normal routine like blogging. After 1- 2 hours, I can no longer tolerate the pain, I was literally crying in pain and I called my husband asking if he can go home. I know that he has presentation that day so I wasn’t really sure if he can come home but I was glad that he went home.

We went to Asian Hospital E.R. immediately. Even they gave me pain reliever I can still feel pain so I undergo liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, pancreas and spleen sonogram just to check if I have stones. I was so nervous because I don’t want to undergo any surgery but thank God, no stones and everything is normal.

I thought I would stay in the hospital but they finally released me after 5 hours. I took rest for two days, feeling donya lang because I just eat, sleep and using ipad. My husband was in charge in household chores and tutoring.


Now, I realized that health is really wealth and I should take care of myself because when I’m sick everybody is affected, my husband has no choice but to leave the office and my son has no choice but to be absent in school. We stopped the tutor class so we won’t be stress every morning. We now have enough time to eat two meals, early breakfast and brunch before 10:30. Unlike before we only eat brunch. Anyway, the only reason why I enrolled him in tutor class because he has no summer activity last May.

  2. good to know that you are already feeling better... I was so worried about you last Friday because when Manong Ariel told me that he needs to go home because you were sick, I really can't describe his face.. parang so worried na naiiyak, na di ko maexplain. Then I remember you were posting about your UTI and naisip ko baka it became worse.

    God is really good... take good care of yourself. Ethan and Manong Ariel need you. Btw, congratulations kay hubby, I heard he has been promoted today. Cheers!

    2. Hahaha! Sa panahon namin mahirap na mapromote, bago na kasi qualification, it's either than we take masters to be promoted to T2 and PHD para maging T3. Good thing he pulled through the exam and he qualified. Ako madami pang kakaining bigas. Sabi ko kay manong ariel wag nya ako kalimutan pag big boss na sya. Hehehe!

  6. I think it's much harder when the mom is sick. When I was little, I always felt that there was something wrong or missing when my mom was in bed with the flu. The house just doesn't seem the same. Kung papa ko yung may sakit, parang wala lang e. Hehehhe!

    Take good care of yourself a! =)
