baptism of fire

Earlier today, I had the biggest scare of my life. My B had a fever and it was a little bit high. I checked on him and we even watched CARS on DVD. He seemed okay so I went to sleep. I haven't been asleep for more than an hour when my Mom woke me up and told me that B needed to be brought to the hospital. I was in shock at first and couldn't move.

After it sank in, I went to check on my son and I was stunned by what I saw. My normally cheery son was curled up in a ball, turning black, and was shivering like hell. I didn't know if I wanted to scream, pass out, or kill someone. My B looked really pitiful.

If Arny did not tell me to change, I would have gone to the hospital wearing what I wore to sleep; without any bra. I panicked and I knew that I should not panic. It was so hard not to lose it, not to bawl over but I needed to be strong for my son. He needed me to be strong.

After we took him to the emergency room and he was given a shot and antiobiotics, we took him home. The doctor wanted to confine him but we said that we choose to observe first. After he was settled in and he took a nap, I broke down.

I cried and cried coz I was scared and I was worried. I was so scared. With so many things going on, this was the last thing I needed. I prayed. I prayed really hard. I am not a religious person but I prayed and told God that I was giving all my problems to him. Thy will be done.

Right now, my son is a little bit better but I do not want to be complacent. We will still observe him to make sure that the fever does not spike anymore. I ask you all to please pray for my B. He needs it badly.


  1. Hope B goes back to his tornado self soon.

  2. It's very frightening when something suddenly happens to you child. I've spent many long hours at the ER with my boys and I know how emotionally straining it is.

    I hope your son is feeling better by now.

  3. So sorry. That's one of the worst feeling in the world. I hope your son gets better son.

  4. That must have been a frightening experience. I hope that B has fully recovered by now.


Hi! Let's all try to add more positivity in this world and adhere to the saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say, keep silent."
