Here's more of a public service post. lol.
I realized that I should be sharing more mommy posts for future reference and of course to add value to fellow mommies out there. And what could be more fitting than to label it with "Mommy Mondays?" Nagpapaka-creative!
For today, allow me to share my first encounter with Roseola or Tigdas Hangin.
Last Wednesday, Isay had fever. As you may know, fever in itself is not an illness, it's a sign that our body is fighting some form of infection. So, Amymy (our kasambahay) thought that it's because of Isay's pagngingipin. We started to worry when the fever lasted for another 2 days na walang ubo or sipon (dito kami sanay e, hehe.) Isay was still very playful although she lost her appetite and was extra clingy. On the fourth day, wala nang lagnat then rashes started to appear on Isay's face then to her arms and back. As of press time, meron na rin sa hita.
Yesterday, we took her to Medical City and she was diagnosed w…
My primary reason for enrolling in the Spartan Transformation Program was business but then I realized, who am I kidding? Wouldn't it be great to bring back the "glory days" when I could wear nice-fitting clothes and have the energy of a college student? I also thought that it would be exciting to conceive again with a healthier body so the next step was to get me that package.

So we work hard, "reward" ourselves with what we earn on unhealthy habits then when sickness happens, we use our hard-earned money to get better, only to return to our old ways.

Motherhood isn't just about measles, you know. But hey, here I am with my second Mommy Mondays post talking about measles. Again.

I think we got the virus at the FEU hospital when Momsy was confined last May 30. We pertaining to me and my ate who had it days before me. A run-through of events:
May 30 - June 2: Momsy's confinement ergo, pagod, puyat and stress = mababang resistensya.
June 3 - June 6 in the afternoon: Life goes on
June 6 late afternoon: I started feeling the chills. My chest felt heavy and I just wanted to go home.
June 7 - June 10: on and off fever, joint pains
I was still able to accompany my mom for her check up last June 10 then I spoke with my sister over the phone and she told me to watch out for appearanc…
