Do you believe that babies are angels?

I'm sorry I've been MIA for quite some time. Ang dami nangyari for the past two weeks I can hardly cope up, I was in a daze for a couple of days and my heart is torn if masaya ba siya or malungkot.
It was a normal Tuesday night for me and Mr.Panda when I saw the fb icon on my blackberry staring back at me akala ko notifications lang or a simple message. I was not supposed to read it pa, kasi its our tv time ni Mr. Panda, bonding time naming dalawa. When I opened the fb message pala from one of my closest friend.... she's somewhere in paris, akala ko something bad happened to her. Yun pala hindi sa kanya, but our other friend "EF", na super close din sa amin, ako pa maid of honor nung wedding nun. EF who is 6 months pregnant lost her baby :'(   the baby died inside, and nasa loob pa din ng tummy ni "EF" for almost 2 weeks na. The doctors are waiting for her to go to labor, the hospital is at the heart of manila and quite far from us. 10pm na nun and hindi ako mapakali,  my husband saw me near-tears and he said its ok if I want to go to the hospital. In less than 5 mins, nasa McKinley na kami, praying walang traffic sa edsa, I know wala ako magagawa but I want to know the real score and I want to see "EF" and her hubby. I felt nervous also kasi matagal na kami hindi nag uusap we had a falling out early this year, and hindi ko man lang siya na congratulate when I heard the news pregnant sya. When we got to the hosp, hindi naming siya nakita she's inside the delivery room, we met her hubby and nagkwento sya sa amin. Every word is like a pinch in my heart. After 1 and a half hour, we left with a heavy heart. There's a thousand what-ifs sa nangyari, but if there's one thing I'm sure of "EF" will do anything to save her child. I slept that night whispering to Papa Jesus to keep my "EF" safe and hugs for our little angel.

Last Saturday, while having the usual Saturday family lunch (guess where, syempre Chinese Resto)
my mom called me and told me my bestfriend Josan (who is based at bay area) gave birth already! and may problem daw with the baby and need dalhin sa ibang hospital. Kulang na lang ma choke ako sa kinakain ko duck. Josan is my bestfriend since toddler years, her mom and my mom are the best of friends. So gets nyo na, we were groomed to be the best of friends too. We are like sisters, I can tell her if she's getting annoying na and she can tell me to stop when I'm getting bratty. I will drop everything for her. I will even take a bullet for her. Ganun ko siya kamahal. After recovering from my shock, I texted her parents agad. They told me nahirapan sa normal labor and nag CS na lang. Pero nahirapan ilabas ung baby kasi na stuck na daw ( at this point, I have no appetite to eat and kulang na lang kumuha ako ng flight papunta sf). The doctors suggested to transfer the baby to a more specialized hospital for cold therapy. Preventive measure lang naman daw, no need to worry that much. But still, the events are so overwhelming. That night I called Josan, when I heard her voice I almost cried. I realized I almost lost my bestfriend that day. I wished for the nth time andun ako sa tabi niya. I wished I can see her precious little boy and kahit mag camping pa ko sa labas ng nursery to watch him. Everyday is a victorious day for us, good news and positive updates from the doctors. Today, I received one of the best news ever, our little fighter is A-OK and might be home this weekend. We have our own super little hero in our family. :)
And last but not the least! my HS buddy gave birth the other day! Her pregnancy was very delicate and 80% of the 9 months naka bed rest yata siya. She lost her first baby and they were very careful on her 2nd pregnancy. Her hubby texted me that she's already at the delivery room, and every 2 hours yata txt ako ng text :) and finally, I got the sms "tatay na ko!" I was smiling the whole night :) thank you Lord for her safe delivery! :)
Do you believe that babies are angels? I do. Thank you Lord
