Start of the week.
For weeks, I have been planning to write a blog but nothing comes up until nowâ¦
Just last Thursday, I got this terrible sore throatâ¦ I thought at first I could manage but when I began answering calls, it became worse! My bosses told me to take the day off and so did my âfashionistaâ officemate.
Our service driver brought me home. Walking to the elevator and pressing â4â was an agony. My head was spinningâ¦ Finally, I reached our floorâ¦
I opened our door and went straight to our room. Rob was waiting for me. Worried.
He was sweet the whole time. He cooked for me and made me a cup of coffeeâ¦ He even bought me a bunch of oranges from a nearby convenience store to make me feel a bit better.
I felt pampered. After eating about two oranges and drinking my medicine. We lay down in bed. He was stroking my hair till I fell asleep. I didnât notice the time but he was pulling away from my hugâ¦he has to go to workâ¦ I asked him to stayâ¦ He said okâ¦ for five more minutesâ¦
After five minutes, I was all alone in our room. My flatmate came by and took my temperature. According to her, I was having chills then that is why she asked me to put on a jacket and also asked me to drink my medicine. I suddenly missed my mom.
Back in the Philippines whenever weâre sick (my siblings and I) my mom would always sleep beside us, take our temperature and wake us up to drink medicine.
Around 8:30 in the evening, Rob called me up asking his patient what she wants for dinnerâ¦ I said — CHINESE CHOPSUEY STIR-FRIED NOODLES —- he said, ok.
9:30 in the evening, my doctor came with my remedy, a kiss, bunch of hugs and my Chinese Chopsuey Stir-Fried Noodles!
