Yesterday,Nate was having a lesson in Music online. Obet was besides him. The latter noticed that Nate’s eyes were red but when it was his turn to sing, he composed himself and smiled at his teacher. Sa Ugoy ng Duyan is a story of a child reminiscing her/his days with her/his mom. It simply means “at the swing of the hammock”. When the song was about to end, Nate’s voice cracked.

He excused himself and told the teacher that he was going to the comfort room, but he went to their room instead and locked the door. A few minutes later, Obet knocked and he saw several tissues besides Nate.

“I poked my eyes Daddy”, he said. Obet knew he was crying. He didn’t say a word and gathered Nate in his arms.

While Nissa was relating the story, I found myself teary-eyed. Nate misses his mommy.

Obet told Nissa that at his age, Nate is strong just like her. I wish I were there with Nate so I could embrace him.

And if I may say, for the first time yesterday, he didn’t request for a video chat with me. He just told me, “Mom is sick”.

It’s just funny and so inferiorating that the crazy old man thought of contract tracing and providing free face masks a year after lockdown. It’s been a year of almost 13,000 deaths, a year of letting the police force take charge of protocols instead of appointing medical people. Here’s a summary of how Covid has affected us a year after lockdown.

This was published the other day. We’re back to square one, we don’t even have vaccines yet except for those donations by WHO and the old man’s best friend china. The people are wary of that vaccine Sinovac. There is a sudden surge the past five days. And they have the nerve to say, they’re excellently handling it.

The other day, I asked all of you if you could include Nissa in your prayers. She is in the hospital now.

His brother-in-law got infected last week so the people in-charge of Covid patients in their place picked him up and brought him to a quarantine facility in Manila. Obet’s father’s sister who is a doctor told them to undergo swab tests including Nate and their househelp. They had it last Sunday. When I woke up last Monday morning, I received a message from Nissa that she is positive of Covid. They decided to have her admitted at the hospital where Dr. Isidro, their aunt is affiliated so she could be well taken cared of and to isolate herself too.

They suspected pneumonia when her x-ray was released. She’s now on antibiotics. She has a little cold but she had no fever, thank God for that. Grab Food delivered fruits and her other needs to the hospital yesterday which Obet hired since he is not allowed to go there. These service deliveries are only allowed up to the gate of the hospital.

You can only feel the impact of this virus when one family member is affected. It is a stressful situation. Obet called me up when he arrived home Monday night. He was crying. One thing that touched me was when he said that he was grateful to the way I brought up Nissa. According to him, she was so strong and so calm. I’ll tell you about Nate next post.

I talk to her and message her every few hours and she is okay. Please continue praying for her. My priest friends included her in their daily masses.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PRAYERS🙏🙏🙏.
