Saying Goodbye to a Challenging October

It has been weeks since I have visited the dashboard of this blog. I was very busy with family matters particularly with Bella. The month of October has been very challenging for me as a mother. My little one was hospitalized and a day after going out of the hospital, she acquired cough and colds caused by her allergy while suffering the pain of teething.

For a mom like me, dealing with the health of my baby is a big concern no matter how simple the sickness is. In Bella's case, extra attention must be given particularly if she has fever. She has this thing called febrile seizure and it scares every one of us every time she has attacks. It used to be a simple one occurring once every episode but recently, she has two attacks in a day which made the condition "complex".

Our being parents was challenged and put to test every time we encounter problems that involves Bella. For almost two consecutive weeks, we have been visiting different doctors and laboratories to make sure that Bella's health is properly taken care of. Aside from her attending pediatrician, we were also advised to see a doctor specializing in Pediatric Neurology to refer Bella's case.

We are so relieved when Bella's doctor told us that her EEG result was normal and that no necessary medication or maintenance is necessary. We were told though to take the necessary precaution to control Bella's temperature every time she has fever and keep it below 38C to prevent the possible seizure attack.



I woke up very grateful this morning knowing that Bella is already healed. We even brought her to the hospital yesterday for another laboratory test (CBC, Platelet, and Urinalysis) because she has fever for the past 3 days. Thanks God, she didn't have seizure attack this time. We are so happy that the lab result was just fine and the cause of fever was only viral. Her fever subsided last night, and her appetite is already back to normal. She slept soundly last night and woke up late this morning.

I considered the month of October very special since we are celebrating our wedding anniversary on that particular month. Despite the challenges that this month brought us, hubby and I have been able to celebrate our anniversary through a simple dinner with family at home.

I thank God for surviving the trials and challenges of October. We are so thankful for the trials because it made us stronger and even more faithful to God. I am saying goodbye to October and so looking forward to celebrate Bella's 2nd birthday on November and also to have a great Christmas with family and friends on December. :)

It's really good to hear, Rovs, that Bella is well now and that her EEG came back normal. I can just imagine kung ganong pagod mo sa pag-aalaga sa kaniya. But thank God na tapos na yun, and of course thank Him as well sa nalalapit na birthday ni Bella. He has blessed her with another year. Praying for good health and long life to Bella and the rest of your family, Rovs :) Hugs!

I know how difficult it is to parents when their child suffer from seizures, especially you do not know when it is coming. So happy for you Rovs, and Bella too.
