Warning: Long Post Ahead😜
Yesterday was wonderful as people gathered for our Thanksgiving lunch and showered Kaki with gifts from their hearts. Thank you to family, friends and workmates for taking the time even if it meant filing leaves to some.
Thank God kahit sandali I was able to mingle and stand kahit I’m still supposed to be on bedrest. And of course I want to give credit to @mukulhanda for organizing everything even if there was a risk that we’ll cancel last minute or proceed without me.
Everywhere on TV or Social Media we see countless events, baby showers, etc and theirs are normal with full prep and support from people who are normal and able. But little do people hear from those with complications. In fact, “Incompetent Cervix” is not known to some and has claimed many babies and resulted to miscarriages or risky premature birth because many doctors and parents are not aware of its risks.
Hence, this Thanksgiving lunch is a celebration of all things not ordinarily done: no decor nor program of events, prizes, formal invites, etc- just pure get together lunch to chat and catch up.
In addition, sacrificial Bed Rest for mothers are another well-ignored situation. So if I still have your interest and reading up to this point, and you know a momma or anyone who’s stuck at home or on bed rest- If you’re a real friend of that person, you would try to spend a few seconds asking how that person is, or actually visit them to help the person avoid the dreaded Depression.
I’m thankful some friends have really stood by me and helped me not to be depressed- and I can’t wait to get out one day and physically do all things I was able to do prior to this pregnancy. And when that time comes, I’ll happily tag along another small being with me.
PS: @mrsnifender, @ewoks75 and @annesovain , I don’t have pictures of the event so grabbed your photos😀
