Loving Life and God more than ever.......

  • Last friday my son came back from school with high fever...jus when I was happy he went thru one whole week of school without a frown on face
  • took him to Apollo where his pediac practises...he was too busy so took him to emergency and another doc asked us not to worry since he only had a fever and cold..prescribed medicines and sent us home
  • His temperature remained high and he developed a sore throat by evening and pain in the joints... and we we were so scared and rushed him back to get HIS pediac to see him...but he was still busy and we had his assistant look at my son....he again prescribes some more antibiotics ....and sent us away...this time we asked him if we had to suspect the swine flu...and the doc jus mentioned that he doesn't think its the swine and that if the fever and sore throat gets worse we could check for swine
  • I was so scared and my little one was boiling ....we wiped his body with water all thru the night and force fed some milk and water ...poor fellow was hungry but couldn't bear the pain....even typing this here brings me horrible memories of his desperation.....I hated the experience of jus sitting there not being able to help him in any way....
  • saturday didn't bring in much difference...he was hot and his throat sore as ever....now i couldn't even force feed him for his pain made me shiver....we didn't want to take any chances....so we drove to King Institute Guidy and gave his swabs for testing...they said the results will come only by tuesday!!!!!!...we gave him some homeo medication as well
  • by evening we were so worried we spoke to a couple of known docs and my aunt ....we even thought of going to bharat scan for another swab since they would give the result by monday morn which saves 2 whole days...
  • we consulted a pediac ( no.2) close by and he said its ok and we will wait till tuesday and he gave some other medicines which we opted for instead of the first prescription
  • in between this there were so many incidents that made us more worried and exhausted
  • By sunday his temperature got normal....but his sore throat refused to decrease....he was hungry and wanted so many things ...but couldn't eat....he ahd milk and showed signs of normality....
  • Monday morn we took him to pediac 2...and he said he was fine and there were jus throat sores which will take sometime to settle....he started eating bland food ...had his medicines...and was slowly recovering...
  • by tuesday we were all happy to see our boy play all the games he used to play....and in the evening we got the report from guindy stating he was negative for H1N1....a biiiig sigh of relief.....
My ordeal was small....but my son went thru so much.....I am back now after my little tiff with life .....
The incident has added so much into my mind ....

  • every moment u spend in life...spend it wise....
  • Laugh alot....
  • Love always...
  • Pray
  • Life can get u upside down in jus secs .....so live every moment to the fullest...
  • Do what u have to do today....
  • may be if things weren't the way things are today i wouldn't have blogged this way...but am happy I am blogging and life is normal once again....
Today the world isn't the perfect place I want my family,friends and me to live in.....but with ppl who love me around gives me the courage to live....
thx to my sisters in here who called me during those moments of darkness and gave me the power to hope for light....
Today am loving life and God more than ever.......
