Poising For A Photo Finish

Tuesday is D-Day or more appropriately “The-Day”. It’s our targetted date for the Myozyme infusion. Unfortunately it seems like we’re poised for a photo finish. As of Friday afternoon, the Myozyme was still at customs waiting to be released. The papers for the Myozyme’s tax exemption is still being completed. God, it’s been two weeks if I’m not mistaken since the Myozyme arrived here in the Philippines. Sometimes I really wonder how our government gets anything done.. They’re so inefficient and unorganized… or plainly corrupt. Of course I don’t speak for all. There are great and honest people working for government. That’s why I’m still hoping and praying that the Myozyme gets released on time.

If everything goes as planned, I check in the hospital monday afternoon or late evening. Spend the night there and have the infusion first thing in the morning. Some good points to note, I don’t need any additional tests. The ones I got almost a month ago are ok already. We have an all systems go.

My mom is very excited. While it might seem that I’m not from the outside, I am. Although because of the disappointments I’ve gone through in my life, I always take things with caution. I’m trying not to get overly excited as not to get disappointed if things don’t go as planned. I do know that it will happen if God wants it to happen. I just need to be patient.

Well I’m keeping my fingers, toes, eyes and everything that I can crossed. Here’s hoping we make it on Tuesday.

Fight Pompe!
