When Mommy Is Sick...

Both my boy and I were down with flu last week but had since recovered from it after paying a visit to the doctor.  Unfortunately, as though not enough being sick, my monthly menstrual cycle that followed made me a sick woman yet again. I still get severe menstrual cramps (Dysmenorrhea) due to the presence of several fibroids (uterine fibroids) within my uterus. It has been a year since my last medical check-up and I am due for another check-up to monitor if there's any growth in the fibroids and  whether a surgical treatment is required.

Due to my poor health condition lately, I have skipped the morning exercise routine with my boy for two weeks now.  Being a very active kid that he is, he hardly gets enough exercise and to make things worse, the Tuesday PE classes in school too, always get cancelled due to the raining season.   Haiz..

The other day while I was nursing the menstrual cramps in bed in my room, my boy came in :

Ian: Mommy, how are you feeling?  You need some water or not?
Mommy: Yes, please, boy.
Ian: (Runs to get my cup from the kitchen and fills it up with water).  Mommy, your cup of water. (Again, dashes off)
Ian: (Comes back with a damp towel in his hand). Lie down, mommy..
Mommy:  Ok.  (I tell ya, I am so touched by his little caring gesture)..
Ian: (Presses the folded damp towel on my forehead) Are you feeling any better now?
Mommy: (Just to please him for being so thoughtful).. O, yes, feeling a lot better now.
Ian: Then, can we go to the park later?
Mommy: *_*

Poor boy, I took him to the park in our condo last evening after school but it drizzled not long after.  This morning when I woke up to a bright sky, I quickly got him to change into his swimming suit and off we went down to the pool.  He had so much fun!

Oh dear! Make sure you do something about your fibroid. I did not know about such things before. My missus suffered for years and years - kept lying, saying its gastric pains and taking painkillers...and by the time it was too advanced, she fainted at work. The doctor advised her to get rid of it immediately - it was as big as a bowling ball! Interestingly, when she was fatter, her menstrual pains were not so severe...

Hi, i had these severe menstrual cramps for years before I got married... I had to lie down, cannot eat, cannot move and very nauseaus. It was horrible!! If take ponstan too late effect, so must eat ponstan before the pain, which helps a little. Sometimes, even can faint!

I dunno what happened, but the cramps went away after I gv birth. I hope you get well soon. Is there anyway to rid the fibroids?

Your boy is very sweet. You are very blessed!
