Praying for the nephew’s health

My eight years old nephew is very sickly lightly.  He has attacked by a severe cough and on and off fever.  My SIL is so worried because the temperature went as high as 39.2-degree celsius and the nephew is chilling.  We have him checked for several doctors because we want the second opinion of his condition.  We have been told that there is something wrong with his urine.  The red blood cells in his urine are really high.  One doctor says its UTI (Urinary Tract Infection), so we undergo treatment.  After the medication, the urinalysis result is not normal.  Something is really wrong with the nephew’s condition.

Yesterday, the nephew has a fever again.  My SIL brought him to the doctor again.  Again, undergo laboratory test and advised us to consult a nephrologist.  The doctor said that something is wrong with his kidney.  Hearing it made us thought of the worse condition of the nephew.  Lots of negative thoughts that enters our mind especially the SIL (nephew’s mother).  Though we do not know what is his condition yet.  The nephew has to undergo five laboratory tests first.  We are sad, worried and confused about the nephew’s condition.  But we tried to think positively and pray that the nephew’s health is okay and not serious.  Prayer is powerful medicine, that is why we are praying so hard.  Lord God heal my nephew.  Amen!

How Dad-to-Be Dane DeHaan Is Prepping for Baby

First-time parents just can’t hide their excitement, can they? They try very hard to prepare for their baby’s arrival. And even though we know it is normal, it’s still amusing when it’s coming from the dad. Dane DeHaan is prepping himself for baby DeHaan!

On an interview with People Magazine on Monday at the red carpet, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star said, “I’m reading lots of books and making the nursery.” Now we know how cute DIYs are nowadays, and by him doing the nursery on his own instead of hiring someone to work on it, is wonderful! Not all dads do that.

Although they’re keeping their mouth shut about the gender and even said they’re not telling anyone, he did confess to spoiling his wife. Awww! That’s just sweet! Aside from the nursery, DeHaan also said, “I’m always making sure she gets enough massages and has everything she needs. I’m trying to take care of her, but she can also take care of herself. She’s a strong person!” That is so thoughtful of him! 

The baby on the way is the first child for both DeHaan and Anna Wood. The couple married in 2012. They seem to have a wonderful relationship and it’s pretty obvious that they love each other so much! Congratulations on their growing family!

Mental and Ability Skills Examination

Today is the scheduled mental and ability skills examination or non-verbal examination at the school he currently studying.  The examination is to determine their skills.  Also, to check if he is ready to enrolled in Grade 1 next school opening.  The teacher just informed us yesterday.  It was an abrupt announcement.  We do not know how they are going to test my nephew.  His mother (my sister) and my nephew did study basic last night though so the nephew won’t get nervous or for him to have an idea.  We just hope for the better result of my nephew’s examination.

When I fetched him from school, I asked the nephew of how was the examination.  He is confidently said that it is easy and he easily answered the questions.  Yes, I smiled because he did not have a hard time on their examination (hope he is telling the truth).LOL  We prayed that the nephew will passed the examination so he can still study at the school he is studying right now.  His verbal and written examination (Baseline test) will be on March 4, 2017.  Another study lesson with his mother soon.  Hopefully he will passed all the test because he is so exited to enroll in grade 1.  Good luck nephew.  We know you can do it!  God bless!

Planning for father’s 70th birthday

My father will turn 70 on April.  We are planning to give him a nice birthday party.  Actually it is my SIL’s idea.  She wants the special day of our father a memorable and an event that my father will treasure.  She wanted to surprise my father about the birthday.  She is asking of my idea, however, I cannot give her anything since I haven’t plan an event like that.  I just told her to do the same when they were celebrating the 60th birthday of her mother.  It is really a nice idea.  How nice of her of the that thought.

We talked about the plan already, the first would be the flow of the  program at the party.  Who will be our invited guests, the motif if there is any, printed t-shirt with father’s name on it, invited relatives, and friend of father.  When everything is finalize we will then of the perfect venue of the father’s birthday party.  We have lots of places on our list like overnight at the pool, since my father likes to celebrate his birthday at the pool with the family, dinner at the function hall near the village, day tour at the beach, or simple dinner at home.  But since father will turn 70, we want it to be special, and to surprise him.  We have enough time to finalized everything, hopefully we pick the perfect venue for the big event of my father’s life.
