hay naku anak. gustong-gusto mo talaga mag-long weekends sa hospital? ahuhuhu…
the little one had his first allergic reaction. we don’t know yet what triggered it but it wasn’t a worry at first. he had some rashes, small and few on the cheeks and legs. no itching, no fever. so we thought it would go away after a few days. but on the 4th day, the ones on his legs started to welt and were sort of beginning to get itchy. rather than have a night where he’d scratch incessantly, i thought we should bring him to the hospital to maybe get some topical cream or lotion for him. it’s difficult to self-medicate with the little one since he has G6PD Deficiency.
as usual, like his previous “checkup” in the ER, the doctors recommended that he would stay in the hospital to monitor how effective the medicine would work for him. thankfully after 2 days, we were cleared to go home!
now i’m starting to dread holidays.
last year, it was during Eidul Fitr, and then New Year’s Eve and New Year, and then this Labor Day.
can somebody say, “walang pahinga”? 😛
