in times of sickness

rafael is having fever again, just one week after his recovered from his last one.

in times of sickness, i'm grateful that:

- i am still breastfeeding, and i can make him drink more liquid even when he's sleeping.
- i have a job that can allow me to take leave relatively easily.
- i can leave rafael in the safe pair of hands of my in-laws who live nearby - as we have no maids.

call me suspicious (haha, no one noticed my typo - i meant superstitious! :P), but rafael has been sick in three consecutive februraies - in 2007 he was hospitalised for 8 days after he was born, in 2008 he was absent from school for most of the days and in 2009 he has seen the doctor twice in a month already. february is certainly the influenza season i believe!

children get sick all the time, but as parents, we couldn't help not to worry as much each time around. i tend to believe what a doctor told me though, that this is how the children build up their antibodies and get strong.

this picture was taken when he was having fever last week - he woke up in the middle of the night asking for a glass of cow's milk!

兒女生病, 父母一定非常擔心, 雖然生病了, 偶然又會笑一笑, 這就是小孩子了, 就因為他仍會笑才令父母心情放鬆了一點, 愷愷, 加油呀, 康復後你的身體又會再強壯點.

Oh my poor Rafael, get well soon. Hope mama & daddy can get some sleep too. (looking at his photo from the hospital back in 07, his little thin hair were "flowing with the wind")
