When My Child Was Confined to the Hospital

I know you have noticed I was away for a long time. I missed blogging and sharing my thoughts to you but I couldn't do that when my daughter was in the hospital. Well, it wasn't last week or last last week. It was last last last week. But still, I wasn't able to get into writing since I had a bunch of work to finish.

Even if it happened weeks ago, I can still recall the pain Bella went through when she was in the ER. When we arrived at the ER, she was just happy and she kept on talking to the nurses but when it was time to put on the IV, that was the time she started screaming. I don't know if your toddler had been to the hospital. But it is dreadful to see her being wrapped with blanket from shoulder to feet so she won't strangle and move.

Of course, that is the best thing to do but there isn't any better way to do it. It was a hard situation for me (and of course for her!). I feel like I want to ran away from that place so I can't see her in pain. But I know I won't and I can't because I have to be there for her. I can see how scared she was as she screamed while we hold her. She kept on crying until the nurse was done with her job. I was just happy that the nurse was good at putting the IV and she just did it once perfectly.

Her one week stay in the hospital was a mix of pain and smiles. I am happy that even if she feels sick, she can still manage to laugh and be that talkative baby we have. Her gastroenteritis and UTI was gone after a week. And that is days of vomiting, diarrhea and  infrequent fevers. It wasn't easy but we are glad she recovered at once.

I know that for parents, seeing our kids in pain is the last thing we want to witness because whatever pain they feel, we feel it twice. If only we can, we would choose to take their place so we can take the pain instead of our little ones.

Being in the ER is a heartbreaking moment but of course, we are left with no choice because this is the only way to shoo their boo-boo away. Hence, instead of breaking down in tears, we try to be strong no matter how hard it is. We try to be brave even if we are screaming with fear inside. After all, everything will soon be over and we can see our little ones running around to play again.

Quotes for Grandparents 'Coz Everyday is Their Day

Just in time for Grandparents' Day, we have celebrated the 47th Wedding Anniversary of my grandparents last Saturday. It was supposed to be a surprise party. We actually thought it was a surprise party lol. We just learned that they already know about it the next day, that's Sunday. Oh, well. Surprise party or not, it was still a fun-filled day. Everyone had a great time. Even Bella enjoyed the games and spent the rest of the day sleeping because she was already very tired! lol

It was a simple family affair and is meant to bring joy to two lovely individuals. All in all they have 26 grandchildren and I am the eldest of them all. Bella is the 27th and the first on her generation. My mom is also the eldest sibling. Going back to the surprise party, I made the souvenir for it. I'll be sharing with you how I made the souvenir on future posts.

Apart from the party we just had for our grandparents, I was thinking of how to write a post about this even if I am occupied with so many work to do. I came up with the idea of creating some quotes about grandparents. Even if Grandparents' Day is over, everyday is actually Grandparents' Day!

I am sure that you will agree with me that a grandparent's love it totally immeasurable and timeless.

Yup, grandparents actually enjoy our kiddo's mischief. They think its cute and sometimes, they would even encourage them to do some mischief! My grandpa is like that to his favorite grandchild. He enjoys my cousin's stories on other kids he knocked-off on a fight!


Being promoted from a parent to a grandparent may or may not be something that they wish for. But it is a lifetime promotion that they will surely learn to love because the mere sight of the grandkids gives joy to them.


This is so true for Bella because everyday, she would ask for ice cream and get it!


Another quote that is based on my personal experience. My parents love to watch TV when they get home from work. They'll watch news and their favorite television series but when Bella arrives in the living room, the channel changes to Nick or Disney.lol. And they are left with no choice but watch cartoons too. lol

Do you have your own quote for grandparents? Would you mind sharing it with us?
