Conflicting Feelings

I got  a call from the office.  I was asked if I can make it to an event the office will be holding in less than a month.  It turned out that I am going to be awarded for doing a good job.

This is great news right? I should be rejoicing.  But I can’t. 

I was in the hospital’s CT Scan Room when I got the call.  We were waiting for our bunso (youngest daughter) to sleep so we can do the procedure. 

Why she needs the procedure done?  She accidentally bumped her face on the door of the car yesterday.  We thought she was ok. She played and ran around with her sister for about 30mins.  She slept in the car and we thought she just got tired from all the playing.  But when we got home, we immediately checked the internet for possible repercussions.  She showed all the warning signs.  She vomited. She seemed really really tired.  She was so sleepy.  Everything was not ok.  She was not her usual self.

We decided to let her pedia know about the situation.  Dr Alex called us up and told us to monitor her all night.  Me and my husband didn’t get to sleep as we were afraid of what might happen.  We wanted to observe her condition and check on her every now and then.

Around 4am, she got up and she had fever. We tried giving her paracetamol but since she just nursed, she vomited  again.  After, she just nursed again and went back to sleep.  She was able to sleep soundly until the morning.

When she woke up, she was still sleepy and seemed very very tired.  These were still signs that she is not ok.

We went to see her pedia and upon checking her, we were advised that a CT Scan would be the best thing to do now.  So we really could see if something is wrong with her.

We stayed in the CT scan dept for 3 hours before she finally allowed us to do the procedure.

The 20second procedure made me really scared.  What ifs were flying all over my brain!  I still hoped and prayed that the result will be favorable to us.  And that they will see nothing.  And that she was just tired.

Update:

We are home now. Denise still has fever, groggy from the medicine they gave her.  But we are letting her rest now.  Hopefully, once the fever goes away, she’ll be back to her old kulit self again.   Thank God they found nothing!

We really want to thank everyone who were concerned and who prayed for Denise.  Also, to Dr Alex (my super favorite Doctor) for being the best Pedia ever! 

Now I can have my 1st meal of the day and think about what to wear at the awards ceremony!
