Unconditional Friendship

It is nice to have friends who will love you unconditionally. It is nice to have a friend who will never forget your friendship no matter what. Even time and distance can never stop the bond of our friendship. My best friend never forgets to drop by and stay for few days in our house before and after she will leave outside the country to work abroad.  

The moment she arrived in the country, she stayed for 3 days here with us. She treated my family to the mall and even bought us many things aside from my favorite calico bags and chocolates.  Even in simple things she brought us as long as it came from her heart. I am truly overwhelmed on her real love on our friendship. For how many years she left the country, still she never forgets me and my family. Thank you my dearest best friend for your unconditional love.

Father's Accident

Today, mother is flying back to Iligan City to check on my father’s condition since father had a minor accident yesterday. Father is old enough to have such accident. It is very delicate condition to father if he had an accident considering that he is 82 years old. We are all worried about his condition although he told us that there is nothing for us to worry about because he is fine.

Mother heading to airport without bringing any clothes. We just bought some food for father. Mother brought the shopping bags full of his favorite food. We can’t wait to hear what really the condition of father aside from saying he is fine. Aside from the bruises he got, abrasion of his head made us all worried.  We are not confident in his mere words of feeling fine but all we need is to know the result of the thorough medical check up. Hoping for my father to get well and the result of his medical report is not harmful.

Reunited With Best Friend

It's been a while since my friend went to Singapore to work for more than 2 years.  Another time to be with my best friend since she left the country.  She has been working outside the country for 6 years already and in every 2 years she had to return the country to attend her mother’s death anniversary.  Another time to be with my best friend once again. We had many things we both missed since two years is quiet long time between us. We both spend more talking and sharing of the experiences as usual expected every time she arrived in the country.

Since hubby and I acquired a property away from our hometown, she used to have her first stop over here in our place and stayed for how many days before going home to see her family. We are actually expecting her arrival on the 3rd week of October but she managed the date earlier to enjoy much longer her vacation with the family and friends. She bought us lots of chocolates, dress, accessories and tote bag with
Singapore print on.

My friend has never forgotten our hobby of collecting different bags printed with the name of the places we had been to. We both had a collection of bags from the local places we visited within the country before. This time, she shared some of the bags she collected from her overseas travel. A simple collections of bags are one of our biggest interests.

Hyper Acidity

 It has been a while since my mother did not come to our house to visit us. My wife and I were very happy to see her again. I miss my parents since I left in our house to have my own family. I never had the chance to visit my hometown again after I got married. My mother usually visited us and stayed months. Since she arrived the other week, she has been complaining about her abdomen. She felt like always having heartburn, stomach spasm or anything she can’t even describe about her stomach pain.

Early this week, she was complaining about shortness of breathing and hyper acidity.  She cannot even eat properly due to her indescribable stomach pain. My wife and I decided to bring her to the hospital to have a check up. Hyper acidity is really hard to understand especially to elderly people. Before mother arrived here in our house, she had herself a thorough medical check up especially the one she keeps on complaining with her stomach.  The doctor gave her medicine to lower down the acidity but still the pain hasn’t alleviated especially that mother sometimes failed to take the medicine.

So, wife and I agreed that we will bring in another doctor to have a second opinion about her condition. The doctor told us that aside from the hyper acidity she felt nothing is serious it is just she needs rest and prompt taking her medicines. It is the normal feelings of a person when having a hyper acidity. All she needs is rest, eating at the right time, exercise and eat the right food that is less with acid content food. 

Having this hyper acidity, the feeling is indescribable.  Hyper acidity can cause heartburn and other stomach discomfort.   One thing we were afraid  about my mother’s condition was might be worse than we thought like kidney problem, or other stomach problem that is fatal like colon problem. When my father knew about my mother’s condition, he immediately flew here to discuss with us on what to do. We then come up with to try the Colonic Irrigation Melbourne, to check further on her intestine and stomach. It is good that we will have the right and accurate check up to avoid further complications.

Hating Constipation

When I was young I don’t have any problem about constipation.  As I grew up and turned into a young adult, I have started experiencing skipping on my daily routine disposal.   Maybe it is because of my daily water drinking habit and the food I take has lots of changes from the usual. I  don’t really like drinking plenty of water because I don’t like going to the bathroom always in school. 

My mother used to remind me to drink plenty of water or least 8 glasses a day.  As a young teenager that time, I didn’t pay much attention on whatever she told me about.  I am very active and sports enthusiasts person but I am not fond of taking much fluid to replenish the water that comes out from my body. It is not good to be active and you are not taking much water.  It is important to replenish the sweat that comes out from your body by drinking water. This is my biggest mistake that should not be happening again.

Lately, I have suffered from the mistakes I have done from less water intake, eating more of salty food, fatty food, soda and improper of taking medicines. These are some factors that contributed to what I am suffering from my kidney stone.  I have realized that everything I have done even if I am an active person still I have limitations to keep my kidney healthy.  It is not good to drink less water intake everyday as well.

Just right after I felt some pain from my stomach, I have gone to my doctor for a thorough stomach check up. The doctor told me that the results of the tests done was that I am suffering from a mild colon problem. Being an athlete, does also contribute a lot on taking out some toxins found in the body.  The doctor advised me just to take the medicines. Lucky that the kidney problem I had was not severely affecting my body and could be cured by taking medicines and more water intake. Thank God I have recovered fast and have learned my lesson as well. 

I’ve been wondering about what had happened to me before on my constipation and my kidney problem were related.  The pain in my stomach leads me to clueless about the possible kidney problem. You can never tell on a simple pain could be fatal if not treated. Going to see your doctor immediately is important when there is something you feel unusual pain in your body.
