I went to see a Doctor yesterday amidst the bad weather and with a high fever. I was hoping that the doctor's diagnosis would turn out differently but subconsciously, I was very aware that 99%, I got mumps. I read the symptoms and they all fit on it. I looked like an alien already as my jawbone swell and sore a lot. And so alas, the doctor confirmed that it was indeed mumps (!) and sad to say, I was told to rest for a week - and it means to say that my duty will be extended, too. Sigh.... I hope I won't get sick again during my entire rotation at the hospital.
With all that has happened to me, I cannot celebrate Valentines day with my husband and daughter. As I've said in my previous post, I sent my daughter to her grandma's place and now I am terribly missing her. I posted a blog at My Girl about how I felt on not seeing her.
Yesterday, I really had chills and my husband put on so many blankets over me. I guess there were 5 including my woolen blanket. And since it was not enough, he wrapped himself around me to keep me warm. He took a leave of absence from work to take care of me so he was the one who prepared my meals and all my other needs. I suffered Parotitis, too, that I had a hard time chewing on my food so my husband decided to spoon-fed me. Sweet, huh? But what a sad way to celebrate our Valentine.
But I do appreciate his gestures. I suddenly remember our vows more than 7 years ago, that "in sickness and in health, for better or for worse..." It's very meaningful to me now more than ever. It is indeed a Bittersweet Valentines Day for me today. But despite all that happened, and despite all our nonsense bickering, I felt love and protected. I thank Glenn for everything.
My husband left me for awhile because he decided to buy a viand. He got back around 12:45 pm and he bought me malasugue soup because it's easy for me to chew and it was all that I wanted, too. And he also brought me a bouquet of flowers. It fills me up, huh? I was having a fever already but I suddenly forgot it for awhile, hehe. Thank you Glenn for sticking with me thru thick and thin. Happy Valentines Day!
