It’s just months now before Cara’s due date and we were both freaked out. We both decided to ask around and read articles about it so we wouldn’t be as much surprised with the things that will happen to her. Cara was so frustrated that she was currently having diarrhea during pregnancy because it was really being a hassle for her to always in the comfort room every time she has the urge to defecate. Another factor is that she wasn’t as mobile as before because of her weight gain coupled with her occasional nausea and vomiting so I understand that she’s often moody. Her husband Derek also told me about her mood swings and he’s glad that I always make time for my best friend to accompany her in their home. She was really having a hard time moving around the house so whenever I have day offs, I always go to her home to help out. Her mom should have been here last month, but I don’t know what happened. I didn’t want to ask Cara about it because I sensed that they had arguments.
Anyway, Cara is alarmed with the frequency of her diarrhea that she might get dehydrated if it continues. I suggested trying to call her doctor to address the problem because it may also affect the baby’s well being. I also reminded her to just ask for the prescriptions since she can’t handle to go to the hospital now. Fortunately, her doctor was available to accept her call and agreed to just call a nearby pharmacy to forward her prescription for her illness. I offered her to get her medicines and she agreed because of her condition. I rushed to the elevator and it took way too long to get on our floor so I just decided to use the stairs. It’s a good thing that we were just on the 7th floor as I can handle that kind of walk.
I reached the ground floor in a minute or two and I found myself tired a bit. The pharmacy is a good two blocks away from her place so I waited for a cab. I got a cab in less than a minute and I asked him to wait for me because I won’t take long and my friend needs her medicines quick. I was lucky that he was a good guy. All in all, it took me less than 20 minutes to and fro her place. I was so thankful for the cab driver that I gave him a good tip. When I came back, I already used the elevator to go up as my legs and things were tired of my walking.
Cara was so surprised that I got back quickly. I told her that I needed to be quick because I don’t want something to happen to her and the baby. She was so touched with what I did and she joked about if I’m going to do that in diarrhea in toddlers. I smiled and told her that I might do that if it was her child. Cara is so glad that I have time to take care of her. She finally told me that her mom still had issues with Derek and she just doesn’t want it to escalate with her staying here on their place. I hope they can immediately fix their issues since it’s neither the time nor the place to argue because the baby should be their priority.
