Thanks God It’s Saturday

Because of the bad weather, I am not feeling really well.  I have carried it for days.  I can’t rest because of the kids, plus I have to send and fetch the four years old nephew at the school.  Since their nanny left, I babysit them while the sister is looking for a new nanny.  They have been looking for three months now and still haven’t found one.  I do hope that they will find one soon so I won’t get very tired.  Taking care of two and four years old kids is not that easy especially the two years old.

Anyways, I have waited for this day this week because I get to rest and sleep for hours.  Saturday is my rest day.  The sister’s rest day too.  I do not need to take care of her kids because she is here.  I am really glad it’s Saturday because I need to rest and sleep more hours to regain my strength and energy due to flu.  Flu is killing me. I hate being sick that is why I am taking good care of my body, however this bad weather is giving me flu.  I hope that I get better soon because nanny job will resume on Monday.

Give her medicines

My sister told me that her babysitter is not smiling and when she is talking to her, she is not listening.  She is afraid that the babysitter is burned out and thinking of leaving.  She cannot afford it if the babysitter leaves again because she really needs a babysitter to watch her kids while she is at work.  Because the sister is so worried, I told her that I will ask the babysitter of what is wrong and what she thinking so she won’t worry anymore.  It took me two days to think of what to ask and tell the babysitter.  I have to make sure that I ask in a nice way.  I do not want to offend her.

Yesterday, I took the chance to ask the babysitter.  Only to find out that she is not feeling well.  She had fever that is why she moves very slowly.  Her body needs to rest that is why she is not paying attention to my sister the last two days.  How can we be so insensitive?  Well, if she only told us that she is not feeling well, we would have given her medicine right away.  After learning that she is not feeling well, I give her medicines and let her rest so she will get well very soon.  I look after the nephews for two day so the babysitter well get more rest.  I am glad that she is okay now.

Feel sorry for my cousin

Two years ago, my cousin was diagnosed of a bone cancer.  We felt sorry for her because she is too young to die.  Well, as we all know cancer is a silent killer.  She has an operation last year because her kidney was damaged and should be removed immediately.  We are happy after the successful operation but she has to undergo chemotherapy to continue the treatment.  Sad to say, her family did not want to spend money for chemotherapy.  They just bought medicine for pain reliever which is not right.  The other relatives wanted to help but her husband does not want it.  Sad but we have to respect the decision of her husband.

Last Saturday the cousin was brought to the hospital for she is having some hard time to breathe.  We visited her today and I felt so sorry for her situation.  She is so thin and cannot breath clearly.  We also know that there is lump found on her lungs and the doctor said that there is nothing more we could do for another operation might kill her right away.  I know that everything happens for a  reason but sometimes our decision affects our life.  And this is what happens to my cousin.  Her husband decision not to accept any help brought my cousin into this very difficult condition.  Being angry won’t make the life of my cousin better.  All we have to do right now is to pray for her because that is what she needed right now.
