Super Celebrity Crush

Hubby and I have gone nuts with Prison Break when it first came out.  It’s heart-pumping, very thrilling and the action was just non-stop.  Many times I would just muse (with hubby by my side) “Haay ka gwapo jud ni Michael!”  (Sigh, Michael’s so handsome!).  Cool hubby could only smile. LOL!

There have been rumors of Wentworth Miller  being gay, but he never confirmed it.  He said he was not , but people still seem to press the issue.  Whatever.

I actually have lots of celebrity crushes, but I can only remember being so smitten  with Wentworth playing as Michael Scofield in Prison Break.

Sweet Saturday: Down times in 2011

I have so much to share about this, but I guess the saddest time for us as a couple was sometime in May this year.  I don’t know if I have mentioned this before, but the kids were separated from us for 10 months last year while we had to learn Thai here in Thailand.  My parents took care of the kids in the Philippines as they attended regular school there.

We were so happy that April this year, we finally got the kids back.  Our 10-month separation was like forever!

Just when we thought that we would be happily united again, Joey’s ear infection worsened and the doctors here in Thailand were so worried that the infection would get to his brain and would therefore be dangerous.

My family was so alarmed at this they contacted a doctor in St. Luke’s, in Manila.  It’s not that we don’t trust Thai doctors, but sometimes there’s always that communication problem.  For all we know, they could be exaggerating.  Or, it would always be best to seek for a second opinion.

Saying goodbye to Joey again was the hardest.  I saw my kids cry.  We did not know when exactly he would be back. If he was going to have another operation in the Philippines, that would take time. Maybe a month or two.

The kids were literally weeping from the airport to our house.  We were going home without papa, and they were still trying to get over the separation from us for 10 long months.

I tried so hard not to cry… I felt like I had to be strong for the kids.  But I was so down and depressed inside.

The good news is after two weeks, the doctor in Manila said that there is nothing to worry about Joey’s ear and that his ear was already infection-free.  It was a miracle.  So he came back earlier than expected.

The kids hung balloons welcoming Joey back to our home in Thailand

Welcome home, Papa! That's Joey coming out of the taxi

Hugs! I was the silent (and crying )photographer who took photos of this moment...

So now we are still praying for Joey’s complete healing for his ears.  Both his ears were perforated, and his hearing is quite low.   The infections would make him suffer pain and itchiness, plus his hearing would go down to zero at times.  So far he has been infection-free since then and we praise God for that. It makes a lot of difference.

Joey and I will be celebrating our 11th anniversary this December 21st, and I am proud to say that we have been true to our wedding vows when we said, “for richer or for poorer… in sickness and in health we will continue to love each other.
