Locally, yesterday was July 2, 2008 and we celebrated Pasig City Day which was a holiday. My husband and I took this opportunity to process our application for passport. We weren't able to complete the whole process because of some problems we encountered but which were only minimal. However, we decided to push through with our plan and put it off for tomorrow. Early in the morning a while ago, one of my husband's cousins came to our house to tell us the news that our daughter is in the provincial hospital for a check-up. I'm really feeling chaotic right now. It's been more than a month now since we were with her. We left her in the care of my in-laws for the meantime. With our plans being postponed and my daughter is feeling ill, I'm asking for everyone here in the mylot community to please pray for her speedy recovery. We are planning to take her along with us when we go back here in the city. I really need all the help I could get right now, aside from financial matters.

I hope that your daughter has already recovered and is doing okay. And hopefully the passports went through already too by this time.

You're absolutely right! My husband and I immediately made a trip then, going to my in-laws and we arrived there at about past 7 in the evening. Seeing that our daughter still isn't feeling well after being checked up and having taken some medications prescribed by the provincial physician, we both decided to resort to a 'quack doctor' who was also referred to us by my in-laws. Early the following morning, we brought her to the female local who lived about five kilometers from my in-laws' place. When she was massaging our child, she confirmed that there was something bothering our child but it could be that doctors won't be able to diagnose it. After this, we noticed that our daughter went well instantly as if she only made an alibi. We headed to her favorite local foodhouse (Jollibee) and she was able to eat as much food as she could; contrary to how she ate when she still wasn't well. Regarding the passports, we're still in the process of completing the documents needed and admittedly, we couldn't do it right now because of time constraints and we also lack the funds for it. I guess it's quite a coincidence because I've been planning to work abroad particularly in Singapore, but due to the recession being felt almost globally; I guess it will have to wait for a later time. Anyway, thanks for finally keeping my discussion company. If I'm not mistaken, you were the one who mentioned in another discussion of mine that you'd try to go over my discussions without replies and respond to them if you could. I'm so thankful for your sweetness. Regards & God bless.

Oh that is good to hear about your daughter! I'm so glad to see some great news. It's surprising how often the so-called "quack doctors" end up doing better than modern medicine.

Yeah, I agree with you. Some quack doctors are better than modern medicine, excluding the fact that they charged far less than hospitals or clinics. I really felt so much relief when all went well after the massage therapy undergone by our daughter, which the "quack doctor" administered. I won't be able to forget that time.
