I Was Extremely Bad That I Had To Have A Malaria Test!!.

I was MALARIA POSITIVE! huhuhu... Now what's next? It was yesterday afternoon (Sunday) that I was suffering from extremely horrendous headache, that I could almost had thrown it to the wall!! I HAD NO CHOICE... I HAD TO CALL OUT OUR COMPANY NURSE (a Filipina)... Hubby went out to see her straight away, and after 5 minutes she arrived with a thermometer. I HAD NO FEVER...

Malaria attacks in so many ways, depending on how your body reacts in every attack! This time was my HEAD, no fever, but with joints' pains as well (which is quite common to every attack!!)...I remember when one of our Filipino friends died from Cerebral Malaria (this happens when not treating first signs quickly and take medicines accordingly), first sign of having a severe one - HEADACHE! By this thought alone made me so worried and so stressed with teary eyes...

When the Nurse left to get the test, along the way, she thought of bringing me to the clinic instead to go for a thorough check ups with our Doctor. Hubby drove me down there... I had my another PREGNANCY TEST again to confirm, BLOOD PRESSURE was normal, and PALCIFARUM test (this is to determine if I've had the severe one), thanks God it was negative! Lastly, was the MALARIA COUNTS test...

Off the record, I'VE HAD more than 10 counts of Malaria - meaning it was close to PALCIFARUM - meaning close to death if I hadn't had a severe headache! They had to give me medicines...

BUT WHAT ABOUT MY BABY? I was crying....hubby was crying too...

Thanks God that we still had a mild one suitable for PREGNANT WOMEN! It is called "ARINATE"... They convinced me that my baby will be safe, despite of my counts which meant to be given higher dose than above! This is the only way they can save both of us - MY BABY AND ME... I took two as soon as we got back to our house plus one Paracetamol, after 10 minutes all the pains were gone - I WAS SO RELIEVED THEN...

Now it's Monday, I didn't manage to go to work... they didn't sign my resignation while they gave a kind consideration of giving me "on and off" work loads until we go on vacation in two weeks time which was fine for us - an easy option while I can come and lie down if I feel bad anytime! A big favor that we are both very grateful for...

I am still having my medications (a 3 day course), let see what happens after this. But fingers' crossed nothing will ever happen to our baby...

I REALLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH PRAYERS..

I hope you feel better and that your baby will be safe. When I was pregnan with Alex and in the Philippines for vacation, I was always sick and had to take antibiotic..I was scared for my baby..

If the doctor confirmed that your baby is safe, then it is safe..Let's still pray that nothing happens to it..
