The Bad Finger

I'm having a bad day, but when Juancho strikes, he really lifts my spirit up...

Juan: Mom, you said before don't use the bad finger.
Me: What do you mean? I'm not using my bad finger?
Juan: There o, look at your hand, you're doing the bad finger...


You see, my middle finger has been inflamed for a week now. It started with a paper cut that got infected. I'm taking antibiotics 4 times a day for 3 days now. I try, as always, to see the brighter side of life. Now that I'm under a strong medication, I cannot and do not breastfeed Juan. This is by far the longest time he has not breastfed. They say "it takes 21 days to start a habit", that means I only have 18 days more for Juancho to acquire a habit of soothing himself even without moms 'dudu'.

TRIVIA: How many of you know the Filipino or Tagalog term for middle finger?
ANSWER: Hinlalato

  5. Aray! You must feel terrible! Hope the swelling subsides and the infection goes away soon. By chance, are you also putting on topical creams on that? Yung mga antipruritic and anti-inflammatory? Maybe you should. Ako naaawa sa yo eh! :(
