My baby was sick!

No matter how much careful we are to keep Caleb healthy while we're on vacation here in the Philippines, I guess the extreme weather change and environment has been too much for his little body to handle. He got sick and was hospitalized at Chong Hua Hospital for Acute Tonsillopharyngitis or simply called infection of the tonsils and lining of the throat. He was treated with antibiotics and antipyretic meds for his high fever. It breaks my heart to see him go through that. It makes me feel a little better to know that he's been taken good care by hospital nurses and doctors. If only I can shield him from all the bacteria and viruses so he won't get sick, I'd do it. But I understand being exposed to them is an inevitable part of life. I can only hope that he'll develop good immune system and that he'd less likely to get sick as he grows older. He is perfectly fine now though. He's back to his usual playful happy kid. Thank God for that!

I didn't know Caleb was actually hospitalized. Sorry to hear that. Hope he's already fully recovered.
