The Highs - I went to Tokyo 2 times! The first trip was from 11 to 16 Apr, brought my mum, auntie and younger brother to Tokyo and acted sort of like their tour guide. Didn't take a lot of photos (realised that being a guide is not as easy as it seems) but will still do postings when I'm free.
26 May 2008
It has been a rollercoaster ride for me these 2 months, physically, mentally, emotionally... Well, a few things happened, bringing me through some highs and lows. Nevertheless, I believe I'm coping fine at the moment...
The second trip was from 7 to 10 May. Hubby was on a business trip to Tokyo so I tagged along! First time I wandered the city all by myself :D Will do postings when I'm free.
The High-turned-Low - discovered I was pregnant! Quite happy since we just started our family planning this year. However, the happiness was very shortlived (only a few days) when complications kicked in and I was diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy. Had to undergo laparoscopy surgery to remove the sac otherwise could be life-threatening.
Surprising, I wasn't very badly affected emotionally. Guess maybe because the whole episode happened so quickly that I hadn't been too emotionally attached. Initally there was much anxiety while waiting for diagnostic result and was still hoping for miracle. Read a lot about the condition and had many discussions with hubby about possibilities. Felt a little sad and disappointed when the verdict was finally confirmed. Comforted myself that I was lucky to discover the condition early enough. I could have died!
Come to think of it, I was rather cool when pushed into the operating theatre. But later on started shaking non-stop. Haha. Afterall, this was my first-ever operation and also the first time staying in a hospital. Managed to calm down after several deep breaths and thought about re-furnishing my room and the next holiday destination :p
Now recuperating and hoping for the best when I go for my review in a week's time. Better to stay optimistic.
I'm really blessed to have the support of my sweet sweet hubby, mum and mum-in-law as well as my friends and colleagues. Life could be so fragile, I must cherish everything and everyone I have now.
