It’s hard, juggling a lot of things.
On top of this of course is my worry. I can’t help but cry when they were putting the dextrose on Joey. And when I have to clean his poop; his butt cheeks very red already and his stomach hurting. The doctors still haven’t given us any conclusive findings on what is causing Joey to poop like nine times a day. I was told this morning the lab test will be available this afternoon; hopefully, when I get there, I’ll have something.
And, this is the third time Ipe and I had planned going to Singapore together but as bad luck would have it, also the third time unforeseen events prevented us. The first time was back in December 2007, when Ipe was covering ASEAN and I was en route to Jakarta; we figured we could meet up in Singapore for two days. Sadly, my trip was cancelled and he had to go there alone. The second time was April 2008; Joey’s passport arrived two days after our supposed return to Manila.
Maybe Ipe and I should forget about going to SG together; something about that place keeps preventing us from going there. But that’s the least of my concerns – Joey is at the top of every list. I hope he gets well.
