Mommy Moments - Doctor, Doctor Am I Sick?


It is that time again to participate the "Mommy Moments" mania. The theme for this week is "Doctor, Doctor Am I Sick?".

What I love about joining the "Mommy Moments" is you will get a chance to be able to interact with other mom's out there, and you also get a chance to know their motherhood stories. If you would like to join us, just click the image above.

So here's my piece:
Akesha was born 7 weeks early last April 15th of 2006, and weigh 3 lbs and 11 ounces only. It was devastating for me seeing my child everyday suffered inside the incubator, and fighting for her life. After 5 weeks of staying in the hospital, thanks to God everything went well for Akesha. We are lucky because she is very healthy and she don't have any health issues or something. As far as I remember, she only got sick during her teething period and minor fever after vaccination.

This photo was taken last October of 2007 when she was sick (runny nose and cough).
Getting ready to take her Robitussin...:)

Hi Dhemz, both my kids were preemies too and stayed in the NICU for a week but look at them now. They're both healthy and thriving just like your little girl. Preemies catch up with other babies pretty fast. :o)

ay grabe...kakaawa talaga mga babies na nasa incubator. ako din scared ngayon...i'll be giving birth anytime to my 2nd son pero sabi ng doctor parang maliit daw yung baby. i'm praying na sana hwag na sha ma-incubator.

Aw ganyan din manang ko si Rye, pero malaki sya nung lumabas, yun nga nga lang may jaundice daw.. But my sis in law suspected that it wasn't jaundice kasi pag asian daw talagang mejo yellowish ang kulay ng mata.. Oh well, at least very healthy mga dalaga natin diba..

She's still cute even if she's sick hehehe... Your story reminds me of our princess!

Cecile said...

She is also indeed a miracle child, Dhemz, just like Jacob. I didn't know na mas maliit pa pala si Akesha noong ipinanganak mo siya.

God's Miracle works in many ways jd sa, 7 weeks pre mature d i si akesha, she doesn't look like one coz she's healthy and always happy. Grabe jd siguro to nga pagsubok, watching her in the incubator. Im glad everything went well and she is perfectly a happy, healthy, smart baby. Natural ra sd sa mga baby nga mahilantan after vaccination, imagina lng sd gwafs pila kabuok itusok ila paa, nya baby pa intawn, ako gni dili ko ka dare ug tan aw everytime shot na sd ni jake, iya dada ako ipagunit oi, maluoy ko sa bata kadatusok. Hilantanon mn gni ta dagko.

Nauyon ra jd sguro mo sa weather dha gwafs, ky dri halos daghn mga bata nag ka ear infection sa weather jd sguro labi na kung winter nga bugnaw kaayo ang hangin sakit sa dunggan.
Pwera buyag sd gwafs wala mn sd ko na sakit sakit sukad pagbata pa jd nku, first time ko no hospital pagpanganak nku, mao giganahan ko stay hospital mura hotel hehehehehe. Bitaw sd oi, ampo sd ta dili ta magkasakit dri, kysa panahon ngayon bawal magkasakit! Nya kung not feeling well ko like sip on, ubo ug lain paminaw mawala ra mn sd dayon. Fatigue usually makapakapoy ako lawas. Ikaw gwafs pag amping sd sa lawas ky lahi ra jd walay mama dri, nya ikaw na ang mama usahay ato laki mo atiman ntu pero lahi ra jd kung mama ang mo atiman sa.
Uli nku ako palasyo gwafs oi pagkatabian jd sa bisaya ba hehehe. Take care and xoxo to you akesha.

Madz said...

ohhh am sorry to hear Akesha was sick dangz... pretty Akesha here's a comfort hug from tita Madz...

Hoping she's alright now dangz, sakit rba jud ni sa atong buot nga naa magsakit sa family...huhuhuhuh

Anyway, I know she'll get better soon.....kisses for her too....

Lagi, ako baby intawn naa plng sa sulod sa tyan kay spoiled na, daghan na ko napalit for him/her dangz... then this early morning nag stretch sya, perhaps he/she was yawning, basin alam nya nga morning na pod ug nagmata na pod ko, it was some sort of a reminder pod nga ITS PLAYING MUSIC TIME, kay that's what I normally do first thing in the morning before I get up.. unya ni kick bya jud to cya ba or stretch ba noon sa iyang arms..

Yepp we'll definitely know the sex na dangz, hapit na sa 18th of this month, can't really wait ba...

Btw, basin mkauli diay ko ani kay I have to apply my visa daw out of the country! agoy, basin sa PInas nlng cguro ko manganak ani then apply nlng right after with my baby's passport too, I don't think British embassy would be as fussy as US embassy! hahhaha... sa kdaghan man gd na sa applicants for US no...

Ay ako diay sis nga naminyo ug american kay molarga na pod sya sometime next week ba or in two weeks time! interview nya na ugma, human na iya medical, everything was fine...

Agoy taas na pod ni bah...hehehehehe, ambot kon naa ko sa mood kay mosirit man lang pod ning akong mind ba..eheheh pero kng wla sa mood hilom pod kaayo, way klaro...

Cge na dangz, ikiss mo nlng ako kay Akesha, okay nba sya karon? best regards from us dangz...lovelots

Mao ba si Akesha stayed for awhile pala sa incubator, just like my niece too Dhemz. Thankfully din hinde siya sakitin. It does really feel bad pag mga bata magkasakit kawawa talaga. Health is wealth talaga ano.
No worries if gamay si akesha paglabas, ako din gamay kaayo my mama said mura daw ko ug 8oz coca cola ka gamay, karon kay coca cola gihapon pero IN CAN naman hahahahaha. Katawa pod diha Dhemz nice ra ba kaayo imong gihimo nga header sa ako I am very thankful!
