Buzz, CS:Things can only go better now!
Dear Buzz and CS

Things did not look that well last night after I left the hospital. She was throwing up some blood and was short of breath. Thank goodness she is in hospital.

Hubby was suppose to leave for Italy today, but he postponed the journey to be with me. I wish so he would go! Just leave me. I need some time alone. But I guess that’s why he love me so much, he can handle my moods and my perseverance. Poor man.

The hospital phoned and asked me not to come in today. She has to go through some tests, and with me being there it will make it difficult for them to proceed in the task they need to do.

The doc said that she did not sleep at all last night. She just stared at the ceiling. As you know it is winter, but she pulled off the blankets from her. Just lying there on the bed.

I asked him what can be the reason for all this. Maybe depression? He replied by asking me if I have seen the bruises on her tiny body. I agreed and he then asked me if I knew who did it. I couldn’t say, since I have no idea who might be hurting my child.

It could be depression I think, but about what? She does well. Her average is 87%. She have a fantastic future, she have all the tings in the world she needs. All the love, attention, affection, name them, shes got it!

I myself could not sleep last night. I saw her face and her questioning eyes everytime I closed mine.

She is in good hands. I think things can only just go better now.

Thank you for caring so much. Im not prepared to face people right now, I would rather come here for comfort.

Thank you for allowing me to confide in you, it very much appreciated.

Still a worrying situation, Riana ; and just as well she is in the hospital and being thoroughly tested. The bruises are really worrying. There is the possibility that they might be self-inflicted ; and is there any possibility that anyone else may have been physically abusing her ?
