It’s so awesome how Nathan was looking around, curious about the people around him. This is even in a new environment, the ENT clinic.
“That’s Manang Carmeling!” He exclaimed while looking at the lady on his left, who was filling up forms. He give that Singaporean lady a Filipino name 😂. I asked him what she was doing. “Drawing <with> a pen,” he answered quite accurately.
He was also stretching to see what the gentlemen behind him were talking about. Yehey, he was not zoning out but tuning into people around him.
In the photo is Nathan checking out the lady sitting on his left.
Just got back from the ear doctor, who needed to pull out dry ear wax from Nathan. It could have been a major, I-will-never-forgive-you tantrum, when the assistants pinning Nathan down were trying to comfort him by saying “I’m so sorry Nathan.” In other words “I’ll hurt you right now and I’m so sorry about it.” But I decided to change the message by saying, “Doctor will make your ears feel better. You are such a strong boy. Thank you for showing him your ears. So brave!”
The struggle was inevitable, he has never been friends with the ear buds, but as soon as he was done, Nathan shouted “I want to hug Mama!” He jumped into my arms and the crying was done! I know he understood that what he had to go through was in the end good for him!
In the photos: Nathan happy to be on the way to the ENT and still happy, or rather sleepy, going home 😉.
Just stepped out of the osteopath’s clinic.
Nathan was throwing a hair-pulling (almost head-banging…if I let him) tantrum before we arrived at the clinic. He drank a homeopathic remedy in the morning and that thunder storm seems to need to happen before we see the good stuff.
Anyways, we were early at the clinic, so I was trying my best to manage his aggravation with squeeze hugs…but to no avail.
About 10 minutes and many patient stares, some of which were friendly understanding smiles, Nathan finally got into his osteopath’s table. Almost as soon as she puts her hands on Nathan to make adjustments, he settles down 😄
Now I’m in my way home with a happy boy next to me! Loving alternative therapies!
Praise God for our healing journey!
I was in tears knowing that William has now joined our creator. But as I watched the video, I realise that his spirit lives on in me and in my twins, who are on their way to recovery. I know I speak for thousands more Son-Rise families who have been touched by you.
We have been so blessed by you, William.
