Hospitalized..

A post blessed Lenten Season Greetings to all!

Oh Well, Mr. G finally confiscated my PR 2 and gave back the magic “0”. At least, he gave me a taste of it. -_-

I’ve been inactive for a couple of weeks because my baby got sick. I have mentioned here that my baby acquired colds and coughs due to bad weather and we visited Lance pedia last March 30 (Monday). Unfortunately, my baby was admitted in the hospital last April’s fools’ day (Wednesday) at 8pm. On that same day, my hubby, who is on leave to help in the preparation for our town fiesta – April 3, together with my MIL decided to visit my baby’s pedia because Lance sickness seems to get worse considering we just had his check up 2 days ago. Lance does not want to eat any food, not even his milk; he only wants to drink water the whole day and needs to drink a lot of medicines. Plus my baby vomits about 3-4 times a day which is painful to see. Whenever he tries to eat something, my baby would throw up after a few minutes. My poor baby! Not to mention the difficulty in giving Lance his oral medicines this adds more stress on him. That’s why our pedia recommended confining my baby in the hospital. At first, I was hesitant to admit Lance in the hospital because he might have traumatic experience undergoing it. Then, I asked my pedia what medications would differ if I will admit my baby and she told me that antibiotics will be injected thru the dextrose which is faster and more effective in the healing process also, to prevent my baby from dehydration. So, hubby and I finally decided to admit Lance in the hospital.

After admission, we headed at the ER for the usual medical procedures. My baby started to cry when the nurse tied his right hand with a rubber in order to inject the needle for the dextrose. Lance cried out loud the whole procedure. We cannot stop him from crying and all he uttered was “Mama, Mama!” I know he is asking for help. Then, the nurse proceeded on the skin test for the antibiotics to know if Lance has an allergy/ reaction to the antibiotics. This procedure made Lance angrier and cried out lout painfully. At this point, I can’t help but to cry; feeling guilty and sorry that he has to undergo that. Afterwards, we proceeded to the Imaging Department for an X-ray exam and finally to our room. It took us until 11pm to stop Lance from crying. He fell asleep crying. What made it difficult for us is that whenever somebody will open the door especially a nurse he would be awake crying. Maybe he thinks that they would do the same thing again. Pity Lance… And he has sacrificed in our 4 day confinement at hospital. After his confinement, my baby seems to be scared of people strange to him which is not usual on him before..

The diagnosis on his sickness is Pneumonia on both of Lance lungs. Until now, I am still wondering on the cause of this sickness. I felt that I am a bad mother because I do not take care very well of my baby. I thought I did until that happened. Last Friday, my baby started to have clogged nose again!!!! What is this stupid cold that keeps coming back! I did everything I can to protect him but still this happens. I’m thinking he might have allergy like on dust or in cats – our cat stays inside the house? It’s possible because Lance immune system is suppressed at present. Lance have schedule for Flu Vaccine this month but due to his health condition we need to defer it until next month when Lance is fully recovered. Urgh!

For friends and relatives who visited and gave us support – Thank You Very Much!
