I'm Back To Blogging

I was too busy with my assignments so I wasn't able to blog for more than two years. Now I'm back to writing.

I just came back from a month-long vacation in my daughter's place in Las Vegas. That short stay gave me an exciting trip in the entertainment capital of the world.

Ding and I at the Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas NV.

Our thanks to Sherry's family for without them, this trip would not had been possible.

Q & A About Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF)

Q. What is dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF)?

DHF is a more severe form of dengue infection. It can be fatal if unrecognized and not properly treated in a timely manner. DHF is caused by infection with the same viruses that cause dengue fever. With good medical management, mortality due to DHF can be less than 1%.

Q. How are dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) spread?

Dengue is transmitted to people by the bite of an Aedes mosquito that is infected with a dengue virus. The mosquito becomes infected with dengue virus when it bites a person who has dengue virus in their blood. The person can either have symptoms of dengue fever or DHF, or they may have no symptoms. After about one week, the mosquito can then transmit the virus while biting a healthy person. Dengue cannot be spread directly from person to person.

Q.What are the symptoms of the disease?

The principal symptoms of dengue fever are:

· high fever

· severe headache

· severe pain behind the eyes

· joint pain, muscle and bone pain

· rasha

· mild bleeding (e.g., nose or gums bleed, easy bruising).

Generally, younger children and those with their first dengue infection have a milder illness than older children and adults.

Dengue hemorrhagic fever is characterized by a fever that lasts from 2 to 7 days, with general signs and symptoms consistent with dengue fever. When the fever declines, symptoms including persistent vomiting, severe abdominal pain, and difficulty breathing, may develop. This marks the beginning of a 24- to 48-hour period when the smallest blood vessels (capillaries) become excessively permeable (“leaky”), allowing the fluid component to escape from the blood vessels into the peritoneum (causing ascites) and pleural cavity (leading to pleural effusions). This may lead to failure of the circulatory system and shock, followed by death, if circulatory failure is not corrected. In addition, the patient with DHF has a low platelet count and hemorrhagic manifestations, tendency to bruise easily or other types of skin hemorrhages, bleeding nose or gums, and possibly internal bleeding.

Found a New Love

We started operating a daycare center two school years ago. Before, I didn't care how the curriculum goes. This year, I decided to be hands on in preparing the lessons on a weekly basis. Every day became an adventure not only for me and the teachers but more so with the kids and their parents. I started to love the kids just like my own children.

While preparing for the lessons, I realized that there is a need for some enterprising individuals to put up a daycare store. I am also inclined to start one. I want to be a partner of the parents who want a good preparation for their kids.

My husband and his team evolved having a common desire to serve our hometown. Everybody knows that they will have to run with meager funds. From the time they built the team, planned, and discussed every issue, the team knew that they will try to prove that there is a chance to be voted for if your plans are concrete, and the team values are exercised. The team survived the campaigns but not the election.

The people had decided. And from this time on, all we could do is pray that there would be a change of heart and management style so that the people who relied on them will be benefited.
