bitten by a bug
husband and i are on our way to Sia Laboratory to have his blood and urine checked. (sorry i had to mention that papa. but i have an honesty pledge with myself for this blog. you'll argue that i could just have omitted the fact, but that would still constitute dishonesty. i think...). he fears it is dengue. he's paranoid about illnesses and he tends to look at the littlest fever with suspicion bordering on....insane (mama, gabriel is coughing, maybe we should nebulize him. no? then let's give him ventolin syrup. not yet? how about dimetapp? not that either? neo kiddielets? antibacterial cream? hot water bottle? ice pack? betadine? band aid? well, how about applying katinko to his chest. i can do that? wow, thanks yen, you are so supportive of my insanity about our kids health!).
but i really hope it's not dengue.
my birthday is coming up and it would be such a bummer if he has dengue to use as alibi for not getting me that gift.
