Why I hate hospitals

I've never been a sickly person...until these last few years. I can only remember one time during college that I got admitted due to Amoebiasis, got pricked numerous times by a nurse that didn't know how to insert the dextrose needle... and from then on I promised myself I will never be hospitalized again.

But then, no matter how hard we try to avoid getting sick..the unhealthy lifestyle, unbalanced diet, and working in graveyard shifts...puts our health at risk.

Hence, the reason why I was hospitalized again. My lungs are weak according to the doctor, my asthma has gotten worse and I've developed Pneumonia on my right lung. For 4 days, I've been lying in my hospital bed, not wanting to move too much for fear that my dextrose might come loose that it might have to be transferred to my other hand. Even when my left hand has gotten swollen, I refused to have it removed and transferred to my right hand. 

The scaredy-cat that I am, I admit I'm scared to death of injections. Even the tiny flu vaccine scares the hell out of me. So, imagine the pain that I have to endure during those 4 days. The steroid injections every 8 hours is the worst torture I've ever had, because as the medication was injected thru IV, the pain flows from my hand up to my arm, it's as if all my veins would pop out. 

I have to take better care of myself from now on. So, as not to get stuck by needles again.

Belated thank you's

Pardon me for not being able to thank everyone when I spoke at the end of our wedding reception. More than a month after, here are some thank you's to some of the well-deserving persons who made our wedding day extra special.

My Family - for supporting us all throughout. My Papa and Mama, for blessing our marriage and for accepting Deck into the family. My brothers and sisters, for always being there for us, even if we all live in different cities, they still took the time to share our special day. 

Deck's family - for understanding the reason behind us wanting a simple event. For my mother-in-law, in helping me with some of the wedding details, in supporting me when I'm getting irritated with her son from all the wedding stress. Thanks for accepting me as part of your family.

My all-time-favorite cousin - Ate Leslie - Thanks for all your help during the preps and on the wedding day itself. Thanks for all the sleepless nights and leaves from work just to get the wedding details done.  For the never-ending gift giving -  from the invites, the additional cupcakes and even my honeymoon bag. =)

Bong - Super thanks for the photo coverage, for being there for us during turbulent times and for being our mediator at times. :)

Deck's best buddies - Bong and Percy - Thanks for taking the time to take a leave from work just to attend our special day. Thanks for your never-ending support for Deck since childhood (Bong) and long after our college days (Percy).

Thanks everyone! May you all be eternally blessed for being the wonderful persons that you all are!

Better Late than Never

It is nearly 2 months since our wedding day and I haven't found the time to update this blog of wedding stories nor some shots from our Big Day. So, here are some of the highlights of a very simple event yet filled with blessings from God, joy from our families and friends, and the love that Deck and I shared as we said our "I do's".
