Setimiento de Azucar

Before everything, I would like to thank you for all your lovely and heart warming birthday greetings. And thank you so much for your thoughfulness. You know, I have proven to myself that blogging or internet is not just a way of fast communication but also the greatest bridge to bring people together. Mabuhay kayong lahat and I love you all!

One week has passed since my birthday and here I am still feeling groggy, ewan ko kong bakit ang ulo ko ay parang walang laman. Yes, noon pa man, empty headed na akesh but this time mas empty pa kaysa empty. Siguro tira-tira pa ito ng aking flu na ang tagal mawala. Can you imagine, I was supposed to celebrate my 45th birthday with all the gloria gloria lavandera, but instead I spent the whole day wrapped up in bed. My nose and eyes were red…I was coughing like an old German Shepherd and I had 40° C fever.

The flu was brought by Gillian from the Kindergarten. Nagsimulang magkasakit ang bata ng Sunday, that was March 4. So ano pa nga ba ang gagawin ng isang mader kundi ang mag-stay ng bahay para alagaan ang anak. Two days after, si Fafa Gerd naman ang tinamaan. But hard headed as he is…he still went to work. Few hours later he came back home and said nothing…alam niya kasing tama ako pero ayaw pa ring makinig kaya hala sige magdusa siya. This time I am now nursing two patients…isang makulit at isang matigas ang ulo. Alam kong there is no scape kong ang influenza ay nakapagsimula sa loob ng bahay, but I was still hoping na sana hindi ako mahawa dahil nga sa darating na party. Aba! Tinamaan ng magaling, itinaon pang kaarawan ko mismo ako nagsimulang magkasakit.

Apropos magkasakit…lalong-lalo na’t ni isang kamag-anak ay wala ka? How do you feel? In my case, I felt so helpless and angry. Dahil gustuhin ko mang humiga ng medyo mahaba-habang oras. Hindi pupwede dahil maya’t-maya nag-iiyak yong anak na may sakit, tapos may kailangan na naman yong isang tao. Sa madaling salita…mamatay nalang ako di ko pa rin makuhang ipikit ang aking mga mata dahil meron pa pala akong duty to accomplish. Dahil ako ang ina at asawa…sa akin nakasalalay ang lahat para patuloy pa ring tumakbo ang bahay at pamilyang ito…que may sakit ako o wala.

Kaya tuloy ngayon palang ay gustong-gusto ko ng bumalik sa Pilipinas. I am so feed up and tired here abroad.

O siya mga irog…bago humaba pa ng husto aking sentimiento, ako’y magpaalam na muna sa inyo. I just wanted to write a short update para at least di niyo ako tuluyang kalimutan. And at least alam niyo ring humihinga pa ako dito sa isang sulok ng mundo.
