2015 in review

Wow… only 9 posts for 2015? Goes to show how busy I’ve been with life. 2015 is NOT our year.

CJ got admitted to the hospital due to ITP (Immune Thrombocytopenia Purpurra) and low platelet count mid-June. We are still blessed that he did not need a blood transfusion or for IVIG (very expensive type of medicine) to be administered. A few days in the hospital and his platelet count went up on its own albeit slowly. He had to be monitored for a while and we still have a follow up check with his hematologist this April. He has been diagnosed with Iron Deficiency too.

2 months later (August), my grandmother passed away. Just 2 weeks before her birthday.

On November, we had the worst news. My father in law had a heart attack and passed away too. I did not know how to cope with the things that were happening. I didn’t know how to comfort my husband. It was such a big loss and I still can’t believe it sometimes. I just don’t understand what happened. I can’t believe CJ will grow up without his lolo James.

And then just when 2015 is about to end, we had another trip to the hospital. Few days before Christmas, we had to take CJ to the ER due to vomiting. He throws up everything even water. We eventually had to be admitted again. After vomiting, he had a severe case of LBM. We didn’t know what was wrong. The doctor said that he might have just eaten something that didn’t agree with him. We thought for sure that we will be spending Christmas Eve in the hospital but God has been good and we were released the evening of the 24th.

To cap it off, I had a critical production issue at work on the last day of work. And I’m still working on it now. Argh…

I’m glad 2015 is over. It has been the most challenging year ever. I look forward to 2016 and hope and pray that things would be better.

Happy New Year, everyone!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.
