Missed their summative examination

My six (6) years old nephew is doing well at school.  On his first three weeks, he is showing good results in their daily quizzes, drawing, writing and reading.  Just like his two sisters, he is studious and very competitive student.  He likes to open his notebooks and books than go out and play with his friends.  In preparation for their first summative examination, the nephew is studying his lessons every night, he practice reading and spelling as well with his mother.  Sometimes I help him when his mother is not around.  I must say that he is so ready for the examination.

However, the nephew had fever after their father’s day celebration at the beach.  He was absent from his class for a week because he is not feeling well.  His temperature reaches 39.8 degrees.  His mother brought him to the doctor already.  The doctor said that the cause of his fever is due to stress.  He got so tired that is why his body collapsed.  We felt relieve because it is not dengue fever.  We already bought the prescribed medicines.  The nephew is getting better and we are so happy.  But sad that he missed their first summative examination.   Good thing their teacher will give him special examination.

He is loving his new school

When the nephew was still in nursery, we are having difficulties in making him understand that we can’t stay beside him.  He is always crying when we leave him inside their classroom.  We have used all the methods for him to enjoy the life in nursery, enjoy being with his classmates and enjoy learning.  We are not blaming him because he is three years old that time.  He is still young, and being with other people is difficult for him.  We are not that after few months, he agreed to leave him inside the classroom, provided he can see me outside.  I am not allowed to go home, I must say.LOL

The nephew now is enrolled in Kinder 1.  He is in new school.  He is with new sets of classmates, new friends to meet and new environment.  On his first day of school, his mother leave work to sent him off to school and accompany him.  We are afraid that he would cry and do not want to go inside the classroom.  But his mother is surprised when he go straight in the classroom and told her mother to wait outside.  Yay, is my nephew a big boy now?haha!  Being in nursery is a perfect training for him.  Anyways, we are glad that he is changed now.  He is loving his new school and wants to go to school even if it isn’t time yet.  Good luck to my nephew and I hope that he will do good at school.

My father has undergone kidney stone operation eight years ago.  After the operation, we did not visit his doctor anymore because we thought he is okay already.  However, after eight years the father is having the same pain and his arthritis is keep on visiting.  He can’t walk sometimes because his joints are swelling especially the knee.  We are so worried about the father situation that is why we brought him to the rheumatologist.  We are advised to get ultrasound of his kidney and two laboratory test for Creatinine and Uric Acid.

The result of the laboratories are not good.  The stones are present in his both kidneys and Creatinine and Uric Acid are too high.  The rheumatologist advised us to visit the doctor/surgeon again for us to understand more the father situation.  We felt sad because of the father’s situation.  We went to the doctor/surgeon and hand him the laboratory results.  The doctor/surgeon is so sad of the result and told us to have X-ray of the father’s kidney for him to know the kidneys situation if the father needs to undergo another operation.  But the father is not open for another operation.  He said he is too old for that and told us that he will just wait till his time comes.  Hopefully, the kidney’s situation is not that bad so the father will not undergo another operation because he is not willing to do so.

He is planning to settle down

I have three brothers and one sister.  Three of them are married and have their own family.  Only the older brother and I are single.  Every time the family are complete and spending time together, they always tease us of being single at our age especially the brother who is older than me.  We just laughed about it because we are used to it, but their are times that we get offended.  We know that we are single and we are aware of that, you do not have to remind us all the time.LOL  We just tell them to wait and see.

We are aware that the brother has a girlfriend.  They are in a relationship for months now.  We haven’t see her yet because she lives far from us.  Though the brother told us that he will bring other to our house.  Last Sunday, the brother and I had a talked.  He told me that he will be visiting his girlfriend’s town.  He also told me that he is planning to marry her.  It is good news and I am happy for him.  However, I am partly sad because the brother will settle down and have his family of his own soon.  I will be the teasing object of the family after that.LOL  Anyways, I am happy for him and hopefully this is the girl that God has given to my brother.  I wish him all the best in life and happy life ahead.
