Lost Weight

Last Sunday while I was in Butuan with my eldest son, Lester, my bro texted me that girlie Liz has fever. So after church I then rushed to CDO leaving Lester crying. He wanted to come with me but cannot be or else he will skip his classes.

After 3.5 hours of travel I arrived home and so depressed seeing Liz crying, she has high fever. Then the next morning she suffered cough and colds. Fever was gone so nothing to worry about Dengue but night of Monday she had high fever again. We went to see a doctor, she had her blood test …thanks God the result was just normal.

But then she already had asthma, doctor’s prescription, Antibiotic (which I don’t like but no choice). Poor little girl, she had to take 3 kinds of med three times a day.

Now, she is a little bit ok…but she really lost weight…her chubby cheeks were trimmed down.




Taken last July 21 at the LCCT.



After she got sick.

“Expecto Patronum”

It was dark, the people around were silent and were very much focused on the big screen. Only flashing lights from Exit signs can be seen. Two kids were silently observing their new environment.   

“Expecto Patronum” 

Yes, yes yes! After three years we broke the ice…we watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix…movie debut for Liz and Leigh. 

What do you expect for kids with such age inside the movie house?  

Of course, we’ve been ready for whatever will happen. We went there at 2 pm, the usual afternoon nap for the two.  

Next, chose the upper portion and near the lobby for in case Leigh will get bored and wanted to do his stunts and babble his “piti piti pata pata”.  But we are glad they just observed and kept quiet.  

Thirty minutes after, Leigh was sound asleep. Liz sat on my side and has her milk. She was amazed with the magical acts of Harry and the rest of the Dumbledore’s Army.  

When almost at the finale, Leigh woke up, stay put for a while until he wanted to be free. He was been in Papa’s arms since we were seated. Papa was too kind to stand up and went to the lobby as to not disturb the other moviegoers and me.  Liz was just contented in hanging her feet to the other seat…no one was there of course. She occasionally glanced to Papa and Leigh who were at our back standing. 

Lights were on, people stood up and begun to walk outside. End of our movie escapade. Liz was wearing a smile on her face.  

Ohh, I will not talk much about the movie, it’s a must see film.  

Cheers to my two kids for behaving so well and for being cooperative in fulfilling Mama’s dream, to watch Harry on wide screen. I have watched the four other series only on DVD .

Last December 2006, we attended a birthday party here in Malaysia. It was the birthday of Lem’s co-employee’s son. Only Lester and Lizette were with us, Leigh was in PH that time. Lots of fun, balloons, cake and delicious food. Our children were so happy indeed. Until one of the balloons popped out, right in front of Lizette’s face. As expected, Liz cried. We comforted her and she went to the room where the children were playing. Another balloon popped out outside, Liz heard it and cried again. We embraced her and carried her; she did not want to go down anymore and mingle with others. BOOM! Another balloon popped, that was the third explosion for that night… Explosions that made our little girl shiver.  

After that incident, Liz doesn’t want balloons anymore. Even on Leigh’s 1st bday we omitted balloons in the party because she was crying and trembling. We never get alarmed because we thought that she is just so young and we hope that someday she will overcome with it when she gets older.  But every time we attended birthdays and went to the mall, when she sees balloons, she is afraid and will cry. She even threw the give a way that the celebrant gave her because there is an unblown balloon inside.  

Last Saturday, another birthday party and we were invited. With the two kids in tow, off we go. Upon entering, Liz did not notice the yellow balloons. After eating and the children were already playing, Leigh reached the balloons and Liz saw it. She then begun to cry and telling Leigh to put down the balloons or stay away with it. But Leigh was so happy with what he is holding. So, to comfort Liz, I let her go with Papa to another house (Pinoy also) where the drinking session was held.  

Now I am worried with my girl. I am afraid she has now a bglobophobia. How can she overcome her fears? Does she needs theraphy in her age now?  

Parents out there…need help.   

bGlobophobia, defined as “a persistent, abnormal, and unwarranted fear of balloons”.
