Ailee’s Victorious Journey over Deadly Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever

I am writing this for everyone to be cautious, alert and aware of the signs and symptoms of dengue; when to seek medical help and what are the stages of dengue fever. This article is only base on my understanding of the disease and actual clinical manifestation of my very own one-year-old daughter. How she overcome and won the battle. She is now recovering at home. She fought dengue for seven days. God is so good for answering our deep, sincere, and fervent prayer. So now, I will tell you the story of how my daughter fought with this deadly virus.

Around 2 am Oct 8, 2018; I noticed my baby was febrile, teary-eyed, weak and irritated. So, I gave her paracetamol for fever. Since I need to go to work that day, I asked hubby to observe and continue paracetamol every 4 hours. In the afternoon I received a text from hubby that the fever was not going down even paracetamol was given every 4 hours and our baby started to vomit and drink only a little amount of milk. We, decided to see a doctor Oct 9, there must be a reason why her fever won't go away. The doctor suggested admitting our baby.

                                                  Day 1

Still, my baby was febrile temperature 39.4. Since fever has not gone with paracetamol orally, paracetamol IV administered for faster effect. The temperature will go down a little bit and back to 39.4 again. I started to be very worried. I kept on thinking that she will be fine soon. I have two patients my two-year-old and my one-year-old baby. They both have pneumonia. The worst thing was, my one year old has dengue on top of pneumonia. Tip: if there is a persistent fever for two days, vomiting and body malaise, suspect for dengue although there are also many possible causes. 

DAY 2 

October 10, 2018. Praise God for it was my baby's 1st birthday. We celebrated it inside our hospital room. I had only one prayer that day; Strength for my baby to fight the illness that she had and complete healing and restoration. My God, she is too young to experience all this. Fever was still there and  I remained calm and always prayed for my baby. Happy 1st Birthday anak. Fight my love; we love you so much. I started to cry out and asking my daughter to be strong.
I was asking Ailee to fight and never give up. Can't hold my tears from falling.

wake up nak! Lets play like our usual daily routine.
Day 3

It is on the third day that my baby was confirmed with Dengue on top with pneumonia. The platelet dropped from 172 to 50. Everyone was getting panic and nervous. We tried the tawa-tawa, magic ball, and igco milk, even these traditional medicine has no scientific explanation, but I least we tried. A lot of friends also suggested these. Thanks to my ever active and supportive sisters who were there with us from the first day until we got discharged. This day also that I noticed Ailee had puffy eyes and some edema in other parts of her body. Yes, its a normal manifestation of patients having dengue. 

super bloated abdomen
I'm so sorry my love. God loves you! just be strong! Aja!

oxygen was administered via cone @ 4L
super puffy eyes

The saddest part was to see your baby asleep for 3 days, she only wakes up a few minutes and then sleeps again. 

In the same day, Ailee's platelet was dropped to 34 and then 21. I don't know what to do but remained strong despite the critical condition of my baby. The Oxygen ordered, but we got a hard time giving it since she got disturbed when she feels the air. There were nights when we didn't close our eyes for Ailee; we were to watch out any bleeding and difficulty of breathing. Thank God she fought the virus well. Diuretics was given to eliminate excess fluid and thank God; she's doing very well.

Day 4

This is the first day without fever. Thank you, Lord! hallelujah! My baby was improving! 

                                                     Day 5

Second day without a fever! Thank you, Lord. Still, the platelet count was 38 but showing no signs of bleeding and other danger signs. This day that rashes appeared in both upper and lower extremities. She now became less irritable. She holds her own 'paaso' for her pneumonia.

Day 6

She can now tolerate foods. Thank you tita. Mango is so yummy.
look at the camera Nak.
She is now free from the danger of dengue. Thank you so much, Lord. I can now smile again, and of course, my baby is now in a good mood. She will now play again with her toys and wanted to go down from the bed. She gained her strength again. Thank you so much, Father God.

Day 7- May Go Home Day

Look at that smile! I miss that smile anak! Thank you, God for answering our fervent prayers. 

Praise God from whom all blessing flow. That smile is like nothing happened. Ailee is back to shape again.
Let me take this opportunity to thank Davao Regional Medical Center especially to Ailee's consultants and resident doctors and for all nurses who took care of my baby. Thank you very much for everything. To my family who always there to support and back me up in all aspects, thank you so much. I love you all. To all who visited my baby in the hospital, thank you so much, your visit means a lot to us and to all who prayed and wish my baby well, thank you so much.  To those generous people who shared their blessing through giving, thank you so much. God bless you more! It is still more blessed to give than to receive. Thank you is not enough to say what's in my heart. My heart is jumping with joy. Above all, thank you so much, God, for answering our fervent prayers. Indeed! You are the God of a miracle. 

Thank you so many guys for reading my post. I wish you all good health and prosperity. God bless us all.

How To Get Your Skin Fall Ready

When summer has sadly, regretfully come to an end and fall has arrived, it's time for you to switch up your skin care routine! A new season means new dangers for your skin. Drier and colder weather will affect your skin differently than hot, sunny days. Below you will find some helpful hints on how to take the best care of your skin during the fall season. 

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Fall weather means you're skin will be exposed to some harsh, dry air. So in order to keep your skin fall fresh, you've got to make sure you moisturize! 

Fall is the perfect time to pull out a thicker, creamier moisturize for you face, as your skin will need all the hydration and moisture it can get. A good serum-based product can protect your skin from the fall weather as well. 

To make sure your skin is getting all of the benefits of your moisturizer it's important that you exfoliate your skin. Clearing away all those dead skin cells will allow your moisturizer to penetrate deeper into your skin. 

Your eyes and lips dry out faster than other places on your face. Always make sure that you carry around a good, natural lip balm that contains Sheabutter or beeswax. 

For your eyes, we recommend Genucel Eyelid Treatment. Not only will this treatment help with droopy eyelids by firming and lifting your skin, it will also make sure that the thin skin around your eyes stays moisturized. Genucel Eyelid Treatment is a completely plant-based product that contains miracle-working peptides that will refresh, smooth, tighten, and hydrate your eyelids. 

Good Health Habits

Most of the time good fall skin begins with not what we put on our skin but what we put in our bodies. A healthy diet can do wonders for your skin, and that means making sure that you're drinking enough water during the day. 

To restore your skin after summer has left it dried out, you can try health supplements. Fish oil rich with Omega-3s, fern extract, and zinc and calcium supplements can give your skin the right nutrients it needs to go through the rejuvenation process. 

Okay, hear us out this next one, but a humidifier is a great way to make sure that your skin stays fall fresh. Often in fall, the air dries out so much that it starts stealing moisturize from your skin. Running a humidifier in your home with restore much needed moisturize to the air and to your skin. 

When you want to get ready for fall, you need to do more than just break out all those pumpkins! Colder, drier weather and a weaker sun will leave your skin needing a little help in order to keep that glow you got in the summer. The best thing you can do for your skin is re-hydrate and moisturize all you can. When it comes to your eyes, the Eyelid Treatment by Genucel is the only way to go. Proven to tighten and smooth your eyelids, this treatment will leave you looking fall fresh.

Talkspace Therapists Discusses The Types Of Friends You Need To Avoid

It is important to have a good group of friends. Having friendships helps keep you emotionally and mentally healthy. In many cases, people are closer to their friends than their own family. It is normal for our friends to annoy us sometimes. 

However, there are some friends who have bad habits that can ruin our mental health. There are seven types of friends that you will need to avoid. 

The Promise Breaker 

People are human, so they may not be able to keep every promise that they make to you. However, if promises are repeatedly broken, then this is a bad sign. You do not want to be friends with someone who repeatedly breaks promises, but they expect you to keep yours. 

The Dramatic Friend 

It can be entertaining and engaging to have a dramatic friend. However, drama is for reality TV. It is not for real life. You do not want to be friends with someone who is caught up in gossip and always spreading rumors. You also do not want to be friends with someone who always wants to be the victim. This can be toxic and emotionally draining. 

The Negative Nancy 

Moods can be just as contagious as the flu. If you have a friend who is in a bad mood, then you may be in a bad mood next. There is nothing wrong with allowing your friends to vent to you if they are having a bad day. However, if you are constantly around someone who is negative, then this can have a negative impact on your emotions. 

The Competitor 

Small amounts of competition can actually be healthy. If you see your friend's goals and achievement as something that you can work towards, then there is nothing wrong with that. However, people who always want to be in competition with you are the ones that you want to avoid. They not only want to get what you have, but they also want to take what you have. 

The Bad Influence 

Pre-teens and teens are often told that they have to watch who they hang around because certain people can be a bad influence. However, this is just as important for adults. You do not want to hang around people who are going to lead you down the wrong path. 

The One Who Fights 

Fights are an inevitable part of a friendship. However, if you are constantly in conflict with your friend, then you will need to avoid them. Constant conflict can lead to depression. 

The Know-It-All 

There are people who always need to have the last word. They also believe that they know everything. They may also belittle you and put you down. If you have a know-it-all friend, then this is a friendship that you may want to end. 

About Talkspace

Talkspace is a company that provides online counseling. People will get counseling from the company by downloading the online therapy app. After that, they will complete an online assessment. The purpose of an assessment is to make sure that people are matched with a therapist that fits their needs. The next step is to choose the plan that works for you.

Herbal Global Signs an Agreement with Jonathan Dos Santos for Sports Nutrition Sponsorship

Herbalife Nutrition has been reaching out to a significant number of sports personalities in the industry where it has been offering them deals to form a formidable partnership between the company and the individual athlete. This trend has been there for a more extended period, but it has been predominantly dominated by clothing companies, especially sport clothing organizations. However, the dynamics in the market and other organizations are entering into deals with sports personalities whereby they have been acting as their brand or product ambassadors in the sporting world. This is a significant development as it will help individuals to meet their financial needs while organizations get the publicity they would like. Sponsoring organizations also get to exercise their corporate social responsibilities. 

The recent sports personality deal sees Herbalife Nutrition announce an agreement to sponsor Jonathan dos Santos as the official performance nutrition partner. The details in the deal highlight that the company will be compensating the Mexican international through the MLS 2021 season. This increases the number of sports personalities that the organization is sponsoring, especially those in the MLS league. Jonathan dos Santos is expected to be a fruitful person in the development and marketing of the organization so that it can achieve its goals and objectives of supporting sports personalities. 

The new member of the expanding group of individuals being sponsored by the multinational supplement manufacturer is now in a position of accessing goods and services offered and sold by the company. Mostly, the new member is allowed to access all the products in the sports performance products. Additionally, the agreement between the organization and the player will also include participating in a community activity that will enhance sporting events in the community. The new member of the group will also be involved in education activities, especially the ones that have everything to do with sports nutrition as well as the company’s marketing activities. 

Rich Goudis, who represents the company in signing most of these deals, has been highlighting how it is essential to partner with notable sports personalities because they illuminate the picture of the company to the broader public. This means that, despite the organizations being able to sell its commodities to the members of sports fraternity, the organization can pay back to these individuals who will later help to develop the communities from which they come. It is the goals of the company to help the community achieve its intended goals and objectives such as sports development at the community level and enhancing nutritional performances. 
In the words of Rich Goudis, the chief executive of the company, Jonathan dos Santos is the right person to partner with the company as he shows exactly what the company has been intending to achieve. One of the most stands out aspects that made Jonathan be selected is that he is highly committed to nutrition, community development, and fitness with a purpose. This means that the organization will get the best person who is willing to use the products for a healthier and happier life.
