Hospital Vacation


I think the title of this post is the subtle way of saying that Bella was again  confined to the hospital some few days ago. What happened was really unexpected, but thank God we managed to bring her to the nearest hospital when her seizure took place. We were actually on our way home from my driving practice when it happened. Earlier that day, she showed some signs of fever but I thought it was manageable so I just gave her sponge bath and  vitamin C and it really didn't occur to me that she will have seizure that day because she was still walking and playing some few minutes ago before that incident.

This was the third time that it happened to her and  her doctor told us that this will possibly recur until she's 7 years old. I was totally freaking out but praying hard while trying to revive her by putting some ice on her head and her armpit on our way to the hospital. Our little girl was totally helpless but I can see that she's also fighting for her life because she's already half-conscious though a bit delirious. Oxygen, IV and a paracetamol suppository was immediately given at the Emergency Room. The nurse in the ER  find Bella's temperature a little strange because it was already normal before all those things were given. A chest X-ray was also ordered by her doctor before we finally settled to her room. I always chose private room whenever we are in the hospital that way I can be sure that Bella can have some privacy and  at least a feeling that she is just in her room. 

Bella is already asleep at around 8PM  but I never had a single nap checking on her the whole night. She woke up by 12MN  for her second dose of paracetamol. Although crying, she took the meds helplessly. She will not drink her milk afterwards but preferred to have NOVA as midnight snack... all to herself. =)


Munching NOVA at 12 midnight....

She was really enjoying her Nova but everything was spoiled  when somebody from the laboratory came in to get her blood sample for the CBC test. She cried harder this time and I feel like crying too but I need to be strong for her. I just thank the Lord that for the whole night,  her temperature was generally normal and by the next morning the doctor granted my request that her IV be removed for her to be more comfortable. My little Bella seems like not sick at all; playing and walking like there's no tomorrow early that morning.

The utility box as her car...
Tatay Bren pushing her car and holding her IV or else she won't go near him...

We were discharged from the hospital after 24 hours because all her laboratory results were normal and her fever was just viral  although her X-ray result showed that she has a mild pneumonia but  her doctor said that it can  be treated at home. We thought that everything about her is  already stable but that night her fever  came back and it happened repeatedly for  five days already. I am so bothered about it so I  brought her to her doctor for another check up this morning. Her doctor have prescribed dental paste and an ointment for her gums and skin lesions found near her mouth but good thing is,  this time the fever is all gone.

As of the moment, she is playful but kind of lost her appetite for food because her gums are sore due to teething. There are like 4 teeth starting to show up both on her upper and lower gums. Her medication is still on going until the next few days. I've had  sleepless  nights since Wednesday to check  on her because she seems to have fever every early evening and during dawn.

I am really praying and hoping that she well get better soon. Bren will be celebrating his 40th birthday tomorrow and Bella's good health is the best gift that he would want to have on his special day. I took a week off from my online work and also from blogging. I would like to apologize for not returning your visits and thank you very much for all your support and understanding.

  3. it must be really scary when a baby gets sick. a seizure is dangerous, did she have a CT scan? i have a cousin who had seizures since he was a baby, it stopped when he was about 6 or 7 but he never learned to talk.

  5. Sis, I think you really have to spend more time with Bella now. More than anything else, she needs your time now. I noticed that she always get sick Sis, and her development is a little bit slow than normal. She really needs attention. I hope and pray that she'll fully recover very soon. Give my warm regards and hugs to her.

    Stay well baby!

    1. Oo nga sis eh... Usually nagkakasakit si Bella pagnahahawaan sya. Normal naman daw lahat kay Bella according sa pedia nya kaya lang this time sabay sabay tumubo ang ipin nya apat talaga tig 2 both sa taas at baba kaya medyo maga ang gums nya.

      Yung nga talaga ang reason sis kaya hindi ako nag work para maka spend ng mahabang time for her. Thanks God she is okay now at hindi naman nag progress ang mild pnuemonia nya. Lakas na rin mag milk at kumain ngayon.

      Thanks so much sa concern at suporta sis... Hugs!

  8. Kawawa naman si Bella Baby and she has to go through all that. I have to agree with Krizza, Rovz. I hope she recovers quick.

    Masarap ang Nova Bella, pero isinumpa na ni Tita ang mga tulad nyan pagkalabas ko ng ospital some weeks ago. Adik ako sa chips dati pero di nakakabuti sa health natin.

    I hope you'll have a fun celebration for your banana's bday, Rovz. Indeed Bella's full recovery and good health is the best gift that he can have.

    All the best to you Rovz especially to Bella and your entire family!
