Brooklyn was diagnosed last Wednesday night that he caught Coxsackie Virus a.k.a. Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease which I know, Filipinos would joke about the disease being known only for the livestock since FMD had been plaguing the Philippine piggery for the longest time (not stereotyping Pinoys, but actually receiving quite a share of insensitive comments since my son's diagnosis like, "baboy lang ang peg?")

I find this article on Coxsackie Virus very useful as it enumerates pertinent data that we need to know about the disease.

I have to speak like a mother here,
Grabe, Brooklyn's so nakakaawa. Can't even bear posting pics of him now.
I cannot bear to look at him while giving him a bath kasi nakakakilabot ang skin nya. I feel so bad for my son, going through all these right now...

Hay, if I could only take all the pain away, I really pray for complete healing and no scarring. It would be so awful if it scars. I also pray he won't be sad na and be back to the usual matakaw Bengbeng like he normally is.

Oh life!
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

The verse says all these things shall be added unto you if you seek the Kingdom of God first and foremost.

Having sought and found the Kingdom of God, my life has become so different. There seemed to be nothing that I want any more. All the material needs have been sustained! It’s not that I am ultimately rich to not ever want something, but God has given me a certain kind of comfort and contentment to not ever desire something that I do not have. He made me happy for the things that I have and continuously blesses me with things that I am not expecting at all. I feel forever grateful because there’s always something to be thankful for, no matter how big or small a deal they may be.

He has also sustained my needs for love, family and friendship. He has surrounded me with people who care, families that truly love me. He has removed the people who are toxic in my life. He has provided me a haven of friends who care for me for who I really am.

God has also been providing me with care for my health and safety. He has seen to it that however sick I get, I am provided with the facilities and treatment that will make it better for me. How can I ask for more?

Indeed, I shall lack nothing.

So yes,
do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I was very excited last night seeing that there are life size adult Spiderman costumes being sold in Ebay. I immediately asked my husband if he is into wearing a costume for Brooklyn’s fun and I saw his eyes lit up for a brief moment then he hesitated. 

So I asked him:
Why the hesitation, you seemed giddy about the idea? 
Then my husband reminded me how our son would never leave home without any of his Spiderman toys. He has this stuffed Spidey (a very cheap one from Panda, around 40 SAR), Papa Spidey (foot long Spiderman figure), Baby Spidey (less than 3 inches in size) and his Black Spidey (Venom). According to him, he hesitated because he was able to imagine Brooklyn asking for Pipi Spidey and desperately crying for it like crazy --- and that yes, he might end up wearing the costume every night! Hehehe, I totally want to see Brooklyn piss his father all the way!

With that, I immediately clicked Buy Now and voila! I should receive it anytime soon.

Received the shipment, after a very weird waiting time via boxhop...

Now, here's Brook and Spidermommy:
