Waiting For The Result


The long wait is over and I had my MRI scan done already last Saturday in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Selly Oak, Birmingham. I was scheduled at 1015 am. I nearly missed my appointment since I overlooked the time.

As I was nearly late, I took a taxi in going there and I arrived on time. When my name called at the MRI department, I was being escorted up to the locker room to leave my things there. I was being instructed to remove all metals, coins, and keys of which I didn't have.

I then asked the one who escorted me if I would be allowed to have my photos taken. Sorry but I forgot her name. She then asked the radiographer and I was so glad that my request was granted in a condition that this will be my personal use and not to be used or spread in the internet. I did promised her and I will keep to my promise.

As agreed, somebody took my photos once I started sitting in the table, then lying down, then pushed me inside the scan. I could hardly see them because I took off my glasses. They let me wear ear plugs and cautioned me of the loud noise.

When I was inside the scan, it was so very noisy like somebody was hammering and the loud buzzer every now and then. It took about an hour for the scan. To be honest, I was really petrified. I am still thinking too much, very anxious of the result. I did asked if I could know the initial findings but she said that my neurosurgeon will be the one to explain it to me.
Through this misery, I would like to thank Mayette, Steve and Ate Nitz for offering to escort me and to be with me during the procedure. They are such a true friends of mine.

I am still hoping for a normal result. I know that God is always by my side. I'm really praying hard and I do believe in him. My faith for him is strong. God is good.

Pray For Me

I am scheduled for MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) tomorrow. Why I will be having that? This is because I am suffering from an unexplained constant headache which can't be ruled out by the CT scan (computed tomography) alone. The neurosurgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Selly Oak, Birmingham was in doubt, that is why, he planned to put me under MRI.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.

MR imaging uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures.

The images can then be examined on a computer monitor, printed or copied to CD. MRI does not use ionizing radiation (x-rays).

Detailed MR images allow physicians to better evaluate parts of the body and certain diseases that may not be assessed adequately with other imaging methods such as x-ray, ultrasound or computed tomography (also called CT or CAT scanning).

I had my CT scan last month and the initial findings showed that I have an slight enlargement of the pineal gland.

The pineal gland (also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, or epiphysis) is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and photoperiodic (seasonal) functions. It is shaped like a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and is located near to the centre of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join.

This is quiete scary since this will be my first time to go under the table. Even if I am one of the medical staff but still, I can't control myself from being anxious. My very good friend, Mayette is offering to accompany me in going to the hospital. I am also frightened of whatever they will find. I am praying so hard to God and to Jesus Christ for giving me good health and I really believe in God's power. I am really hoping that it will be a good result with the help of God, Jesus Christ and Mother Mary.

Blog Review: (money.makoyskie.com)

Makoy is very creative and generative in the sense of making money online. He elaborates on how to make use of your money or how to earn money.

There are some articles extracted from magazines like Playboy Philippines, FHM, Uno, etc. Bebe Gandanghari (Rustom Padilla before) is my very idol and I believe in his courage to open up.
And about scandal of Kim Chiu of which it is very far from reality for her to do that.

There are lot more for you to explore. It is a worth to visit.

Ruby Is Coming To England

Ruby Wolfsteiner or Ruby for short is here in UK for a short visit. She stayed with me for the next 3 weeks. I met her in Birmingham International Airport a week ago together with my kids, Bacon and Chez.

They (Bacon and Chez) were so happy and excited to see her and that was their first time to go to the airport. To both of you, you know, how much your daddy love you. I was with Roger de Leon in fetching her and he brought all his kids with him as nobody would look after them.

When we reached home, we had our lunch together and the foods being served were the spare during my birthday. I knew that she was so tired at that time because she travelled from Hohenfels in Bavaria region in Germany up to Hahn, Frankfurt for 5 hours and her husband was the one driving. That was a long journey, isn't it?

I just toured her here in Northfield and she enjoyed browsing the stores and she kept on saying that it is so cheap here. I just laughed at her. I started to get worried since I was running out of money and I have no overtime for the past month.

But anyway, since she is here, I will try to be a good host. Ruby is a easy going person and very flexible. I can assure that she possess a good character and trustworthy.

My Birthday Update Part 1

Photobucket

Our birthday party is over and it was indeed, a very successful one and full of joy. There were so many guests as usual and they are from the Northfield Filipino Community. Foods were either being donated or given as charity...hehehe.

By the way, the 2nd part of this event can be viewed by clicking the link here.

The birthday party was a joint party for the birthday celebrants, Rolly, Bacon and Chez. That was their first birthday party ever. Bacon was very gorgeous and very beautiful on her fairy dress with gold crown, earrings, necklace and anklet. Chez was wearing a spiderman outfit and he was so lovely on that attire.

They even blew the candles and made a wish. Bacon and Chez wishes was that they can walk someday. They know that their daddy Rolly love them so much. The kids love them and they posed with them. The only person that kept on laughing was Dante Lactao. He could not believe that Bacon and Chez were having a birthday as well.

Baby Jojo was there as well but this time via webcam. He woke up early and viewed the entire birhtday party and even chatted to my guests. I was so happy with his attendance. I know that he love me so much. Thank you for your love, baby Jojo.

The kids were playing all night long and the teenagers had a chat and so with the adults. As I blew the candles, I was in tears when prayers were offered by Arleen Huelgas. It was so difficult to move from either rooms because the space is just enough for me.

Present were my everdearest friends here in Northfield:

  1. Wilson and Arleen Huelgas with Dave, Katherine and Kirsten and Roselle
  2. Bert and Alice Anqui with Dondon and Christian
  3. Zaldy Uera with Zamil, Jono and Josh
  4. Mayette Rivera and Jamjam with Abby, Mikoy, Pauline and Akring
  5. Hams Masuhud with Shareen and Amr
  6. Dante and Macy Lactao with Mayumi, Maraya and Rikki
  7. Imelda with Isabel and her sister
  8. Roger and Bing de Leon with KC and Vernette
  9. Meg Castracion and husband with son
  10. Alma Bautista with Louis
  11. Wilmer Ragudo
  12. Sheila
  13. Francis
  14. Nikko Chiong
  15. Espinoza children (Carlo, Cyrus, Charmaine and Renzo)
  16. Bing Porte with Dondon and Francesca

Here are the photos below:
