The boys had a great time, especially Laynce, DS1. He had 3 hunts this year.... one with the City of Frisco
here in Texas, April 16th, one at school and the last one was at my sister's.
We had so much fun, did you? We took our Easter Bunny pictures, courtesy
of 3:16 Team Reality. That's my sister's company.
Anyway, hope you had a great
Easter from BubuBibi!

Our trip to DC is coming up soon since we need to go to DC to get my son's birth certificate, yes, he does get dual citizen until he is 18. After that, we will be visiting my OBFF (Online Best Friend Forever). I've met this girl through a customer and became very good friends only by talking over msn. Then, we got to meet each other on a family vacation back in December 2009. We are finally able to meet up with Eve again. Eve lives in VA and has a pair of twins a year older than little Laynden.
So, this time, I told myself that I'll try to travel with cloth diaper full time so that I can feel exactly how some mom feel....
Good luck to me! I will definitely blog about my experience when I get back. Find out at the end of May!

Hubby called his daddy tonight. My father-in-law had prostate cancer 2-3 years ago and I was told that he had a surgery and was successful but like all cancer patients, they have to do a check up every "X" months or years. He did his check up and they suspect that the cancer came back and probably spreading to the bones. Doctor suggest that he does a PET Scan Carbon 11???? I am so bad with medical terms because growing up, at most I hear my grandparents have diabetes, high blood or high cholesterol. The word cancer has never strike our family but sad enough, it is now.
I told my husband that since he is unemployed now for the moment, he should take this time off to stay with his parents since they are in their 70s. Though, they live miles away and that means, it will take him away from us.... Life is just too tough. Still, the same question I ask each night before I go to sleep and before I make my prayers.... is tonight the end of the tunnel where I see the light?
Thank you so much for all of your support. Please visit us at www.bububibi.com to chat with us if you have any questions.

Few months ago, Lionel complain that his back is hurting. For years, on and off, he complains that he has sharp pain in the chest. He always thought that it is because he hurt himself during a basketball game. So, he has been drowning himself with Advil, the Costco size Advils has been drained out within weeks. Then, approximately a month ago, he started sitting up to sleep. Instead of laying down because it hurts him. Unfortunately, I travel for work, so, I do not see him Mon- Thursdays and being a young man, he doesn't come home early at all, by the time he comes home, I am already in the room working on my business stuff while accompaying my sons to sleep. 2 weeks ago, he started walking weird and I finally saw it when he attended my son's birthday party (even though he lives with me but he is always in his room). I insisted that he sees the doctor. He hasn't really shown us how painful it is because he knows that he does not have health insurance and he knows that I am the only person working since my husband lost his job, he didn't want to burden anyone. Last Thursday, I flew home and saw that this is not right, he has to drag himself and walking with a walking stick.
We drove him to the nearest ER. They did a MRI and couldn't find anything, several doctors came by and finally, the did a second MRI and found out that his spinal cord has been compressed badly. We were in the ER at around 7.30pm and by the time they found this, it was already approximately 6am. Dad, mom and oldest sister including his gf were all there in the waiting room, all tired. Doctor came in at 7am, told his that he wants to perform an emergency surgery at around 1-1.30pm. Though, by 9am, a nurse came in, told us that the doctor do not want to wait as this is very serious. He performed the surgery. Around noon, we were told that he is suspected to have the Giant Cell Tumor. They took out as much as they can and they do not think the tumor has spread, though, he will probably have to go through radiation. Since he waited that long, the doctor said that there may be a chance where he may not walk like normal.
Life is weird.... one minute, I have a perfectly healthy little brother, the other minute, I was told that my brother has cancer. He is only 24, so, that night, I was sleeping outside of the Critical Care Unit, I was secretly praying to God, telling him, please shorten my life so that my little brother will live longer. I am so sad... I am not sure why bad things keep happening to me and my family. I do not know how long more I have to go through this dark and gloomy times. Aunt from Australia called and told me to stay calm and that, there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel, in my heart, I asked, will there ever be or am I just stuck in a dark hole? One min we are fine and since he doesn't have insurance, the next minute, we are buried in more than 100K of debt. :(
Everyday I deal with stress at work, stress at home and I have customers that think that I am a bad seller since I do not ship wtihin the time frame. Most of the times is because I am waiting for customers to inform me of the print/ color selection because in the past, if I haven't heard from the customer, I randomly ship to them and again, they were unhappy. To me, it is just always my fault. I can never satisfy anyone in this world. I just hope that sometimes, people would at least think that there could be going on in someone else's life and be easier on people. Sometimes, the harsh words that buyer says to me really gets to me because I do take each and every email personally.
It's like a dream... a very bad dream, I can never imagine losing my brother.... especially he is only 24.
Please pray that my little brother will heal and get to live with me for as long as I live. I love you Lionel, I hope you will grow and learn from everything, I hope that you will turn over a new leaf and appreciate everything around you.
