Noel brought home his spare hearing aid but only for the left ear. The amplifier for the right ear was detached so he told me to ask an audiologist later if it still could be attached. Hearing loss is hereditary according to my doctor. Noel uses them in both ears.

I am trying to practice having both ears with hearing aid so I bought a a cheap pair but it is made in China. When I have my ENT check-up this coming December, I will decide to finally buy. They are so costly here.

I’ll be back for another lab test (FBS) in two weeks. My blood sugar has gone down but it is not in the normal range yet. Normal is 5.5, mine is 6.6. Unfortunately, my blood pressure has gone up. Praying that in my next visit, everything would be normal.

Noel brought home 2 big bags of healthy trail mix for my plain oatmeal diet, several tea variants and he gave me dark chocolate for diabetics. The others have their Fererro which used to be my favorite. One bag of this trail mix costs more than 5K here which I can’t afford.

One of these is good for one mug of plain oatmeal.

Aside of course from being hit by the lazy bug to make a blog post, I was busy.

Finally, we got to meet again after several years. What a lovely time with the family. We had a mini reunion last November 1 when Noel and Lanette were here. A late celebration for my birthday. I just ordered food online so we had enough time to exchange news. We invited my oldest brother Kuya Roy and my sis-in-law, Nissa’s family too. They brought with them lots of goodies for the family. Nissa and Noel took a lot of photos. I am compiling them in an album at Facebook.

At first mom could not recognize Noel but when he embraced and kissed her, she smiled and shouted “Oweng”, Noel’s nickname.

A family pic but the others were busy with lunch. (Josef, Noel, Nissa, Nate and me).
Ang maglolo.
With Noel and Lanette
Look at how old my mom is now. She’ll be turning 94 by April next year.

Nate’s legs are so heavy😘

They spent four days in Mindoro with Lanette’s family, then yesterday, they were off to Pangasinan to visit Alden at the cemetery and a quick visit to my niece and sis-in-law and some cousins. Good thing one of Lanette’s brothers was free to drive them around. They’re coming back today and on Saturday, Nissa and Obet will bring them to Tagaytay to enjoy another tourist attraction.

Mae is Alden’s only child. She said she looks more like his tito than her Papa.

Just a hectic two-week visit.
