    “Motherhood” 

    Taken a few weeks of being transferred to a different facility in Manila. (Fe Del Mundo Childrens Hospital)

    I was looking around my online profiles and reviewing notifications, messages, invitations, events, and trying desperately to reply to each individual with a personal message. I found that I had new audiences reading my blog and one of which was LadyRomp. Her blog talks more about the inspirational women of time such as Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Johnson (Co-founder of Bamboosa), Michele Ernsdorff (Founder of Compass to Care – a foundation is dedicated to scheduling and paying for the travel arrangements the families of children with cancer require.) and many more. In her latest entry she blogged about “Reflection On Motherhood” .

    As she goes on with her story, it suddenly struck me when was the last time that I reminisced our own amazing story about the birth of my second child. It’s been seven years now since my daughter, Ayena Faith C. Encarnacion was born. At around 2:00am in the morning of April 22 2005 my daughter was born at a small hospital near our town. A week before that me and my wife was resting and all of sudden at 5 months and a few weeks, she started having contractions. She was bleeding too early and I was well aware of all the possibilities that I could lose my child or even wife. I wasn’t ready for both so you can imagine how devastating it was for man anticipating a cruel event in his life. Prior to that our doctor found that during the 2nd trimester the baby already assumes a position head down.I remember when I use to feel her sides and feel my daughter moving so often and talking to her. Unfortunately during that process she took the placenta with her covering the cervix totally and as a result my wife had a case of “Placenta Previa Totalis”. The doctor specifically instructed us to have my wife at full bed rest. She was not allowed to stand up and be stressed with anything to minimize the weight  of pressure to her placenta that may cause her to bleed too much at an early stage and loose the baby. April of 2005 my wife suddenly experienced excessive bleeding at 2:00am in the morning. we rushed her to nearest hospital and had her at the emergency room as possible.

    The bleeding stopped after a few hours. I was so scared and I’ve never been that scared my entire life. My wife was transferred to a private ward and I watched over her the whole time. The next morning she was fine and I was hoping that was the last of her episode, but then the baby had come out and she resumed bleeding more. I called our doctor fortunately she was able to come as soon as she can. After hours of waiting I finally got the chance to speak to our doctor. She said that my wife almost died giving birth to my daughter and that the baby is safe for the time being. She was too premature at 5 months and 3 weeks and would not be able to manage breathing on her own. The hormones that help her lungs pump does not come in until her 7th month. She requires to be in an incubator and a respirator to help her breathing and regulate temperature. The small facility that we’re in cannot provide the respirator that my daughter needed. We decided to transfer her right away to better facility 2-3 hours away from home. The hospital was known for its huge success of babies surviving a premature birth. The transfer was no joy ride at all meaning a quick 1 hour trip with no hassle. We were leaving the hospital, while my wife was being sent home to recuperate from giving birth. I wanted to take her home myself, but I know that she understands our daughter needs me more than ever, so I hopped in the ambulance with my mother-in-law  to accompany the baby safely to the next facility.

    We had to go through traffic and took us about 2 hours to make the trip. In the ambulance, the baby flat-lined twice and my pediatrician was good enough that he was able to revive her heartbeat twice. We got to the next hospital and we had to carry her incubator all the way up to 5th floor of the building to get her to the Intensive Care Unit because the elevator on that very minute malfunctioned. We were just seconds away from setting my daughter up for her respirator and incubator when suddenly we lost her again. The doctor had to revive her at the hallway one more time and was successful.

    Finally, the doctor came out and spoke to me that we don’t need her to use the incubator anymore because my daughter can regulate her temperature now and she only needs the respirator. The draw back of the situation is that we may need to increase the pressure to its maximum level and have risk that her lungs may explode. He needed my permission for the procedure and I had  no choice but to say yes and take the all the chances we have at her to survive.

    She stayed there for few months and I didn’t care about the bill and how much it  would cost. I was practically broke but it didn’t matter. What mattered was that my daughter now has better chance. After almost 4 months we were able to take her home to her mother and until today she’s our miracle. A living example of blind faith and a strong beacon of hope for our family. Thus, we named her “Faith”. Drinking my last coffee and going home now and tell my wife and family that they mean the whole world to me.

    Thanks LadyRomp for the inspiration, may this inspire people to believe in hope. Keep the faith!

    Championship Game with my daughter.

    JOKE of the DAY 

    A salesman returns from a long road trip to Europe, having left his beloved cat in his brother‘s care.  The minute he lands in the States and clears customs, he calls his brother and inquires about his pet.

    “The cat’s dead,” replies his brother bluntly.

    The salesman is devastated.  “You know how much that cat meant to me,” he sobs into the phone,  “Couldn’t you at least have given a little thought into a nicer way of breaking that news to me?  For instance you could have said, ‘Well you know, the cat got out of the house one day and climbed up on the roof, and the fire department couldn’t get her down, and finally she died of exposure, or starvation or something?’  Why are you always so thoughtless?”

    “Look I’m really, really, sorry,” says his brother.  “I’ll try to do better next time, I swear.”

    “Okay, let’s just put this ugly incident behind us,” said the high strung salesman.  “How are you anyway?  How’s Mom?”

    There was a brief pause, “Uh,”  the brother finally stammers,  “uh,….   Mom got out of the house one day and climbed up on the roof….”

    Moral of the story.   A sales professional who travels a lot and lives alone, should know better than to get a pet.  It’s not fair to the pet or the your relatives you coerce into looking after it while you are away.  Second, with the advent of the internet,  road warriors can now stay in touch with email, Google phone, Hangout sessions or other forms of video chat.  With so many different ways of staying in touch, you now have no excuse not to.

    Staying Positive 

    Even the best jobs can get you down and make you depressed sometimes. The fastest way to snap out of it isn’t to rage quit, its put things into perspective and elevate your mood.

    It doesn’t matter if you’re working your dream job, there will be days when every exchange will make you feel bad about yourself. Suite 101 suggests the key is to remember that even if you feel overworked and under-appreciated, at least you have a job. It can be rough, but at least you’re being paid for your trouble.

    That can be easier said than done, especially on bad days, so remember to keep work and life in balance and get out of the office when you can. Leave on time, or find an activity outside of the office that’s rewarding but forces you to leave at a regular time.

    Most importantly, keep in mind that your job isn’t your life. Even if you love your job, it’s still called work for a reason, and the workday will eventually be over. What are some of your tips for staying positive even when your job gets you down? Do you just walk out, or try to cope? Share your tips in the comments.

    WORLD BACK UP DAY!!! – Celebrate by Backing Up all your stuff. 

    Today is World Backup Day, a holiday that celebrates the task we all know we should be doing, but one that’s way too easy to ignore—until your hard drive starts to grind or your phone decides to go for a swim. Lucky for you, World Backup Day falls on a Saturday this year. You’ve got the time. Now let’s back up that data.

    We’ve covered backup from virtually every angle, and for every platform. Think of this post as the index for all your backup needs.

    Priority One: Your Computer

    First, let’s start with the big one: Your computer.

    It's World Backup Day! Celebrate by Finally Backing Up Your Stuff

    Set Up an Automated, Bulletproof File Back Up Solution

    Whether you’re a Windows, Mac, or Linux user, here’s our recommended method of backing up your computer. This post will help you back up your hard drive both locally (so you can quickly get back up and running if anything goes awry) and off-site (so that if your computer’s stolen or your house burns down you can still get your data back).

    If you want to beef up your on-site backups, you may also want to look into how to turn your old computer into a network-backup machine with FreeNAS.

    Priority Two: Your Phone

    Already got your computer backed up. Congrats, redundancy pro! You deserve a badge! Now let’s turn to that other device with a hard drive you count on daily: Your phone. This section is divvied into iPhone and Android backup options.

    First, for the iPhone crowd:

    You already know that iTunes backs up your phone when you plug your iPhone into your computer and sync, so that’s kind of a no-brainer. But if you really want to back up that iPhone and you don’t mind jailbreaking, you’ve got an even better option:

    It's World Backup Day! Celebrate by Finally Backing Up Your Stuff

    How to Set Up a Fully Automated App and Settings Backup on Your Jailbroken iDevice

    This guide will walk you through how tofully back up your iOS device’s data, and do so wirelessly and automatically. Here’s how it works.

    Oh, and even if you decide you only want to back up your iOS device using the default iTunes route, you may want to keep two things in mind: First, make sure you back up that back up. If you’re already backing up your computer (remember that backup method we linked to above?), then you’re already on top of this. Second, you may want to consider encrypting your iPhone backups with iTunes. Doing so means you won’t have to re-enter your passwords in the event you have to restore your device at a later date.

    Now for the Android crowd:

    It's World Backup Day! Celebrate by Finally Backing Up Your Stuff

    How to Set Up a Fully Automated App and Settings Backup on Android

    In an ideal world, your Android’s apps, their settings, and your system settings would automatically back up to the cloud so that if you lost your phone, bought a new one, or installed a new custom ROM, setting up a fresh device with everything in place would be a piece of cake. That’s not how it works by default, which is why we’ve detailed how to set up a fully automated app and settings backup on Android. Do it!

    If you’re backing up like a champ, it’ll be exceptionally easy to upgrade to a new phone and take all your data with you. Good times.

    Priority Three: Your Email

    Most of us have had our email accounts for years, which means your inbox is more than just a tool you use to communicate daily; it’s also a shoebox of digital memories. So back up those memories, already!

    It's World Backup Day! Celebrate by Finally Backing Up Your Stuff

    How to Back Up Your Gmail the Easy and Cheap Way

    If your inbox suddenly went blank, where would you turn? This post walks throughhow to back up your Gmail the cheap and easy way, but many of the methods therein also apply to any email account, whether or not it’s Google powered.

    Priority Four: Back Up Your Webapps

    It's World Backup Day! Celebrate by Finally Backing Up Your Stuff

    How to Protect Your Data in the Event of a Webapp Shutdown (and Prevent the Problem in the Future)

    In many ways, the web is a great place for your data. Most serious web companies follow a considerably more rigorous data backup and redundancy strategy than you do. That said, the world’s not perfect. A service might shut down overnight, or one web site might not be taking backup as seriously as they should. Here’s how to protect your data in the event of a webapp shutdown or other data loss. Basically how to back up that business.

    Priority Five: Games and Media

    If you’ve already got your most important data backed up, you may want to turn to less mission-critical forms of data—for example, your video games and media.

    For starters, let’s take a look at all those Blu-Rays:

    It's World Backup Day! Celebrate by Finally Backing Up Your Stuff

    The Hassle-Free Guide to Ripping Your Blu-Ray Collection

    Blu-Ray may be majestic, but it also has more copy protection than any other format around, and playing it on your computer can be difficult to impossible. Here’s how to rip and back them up.

    How to Rip a DVD to Your Computer

    If you’d simply like to get rid of your old-school DVDs, hit up our step-by-step guide to ripping a DVD to your computer.

    Lastly, let’s back up those video games. Unfortunately it’s not as easy to back up your games in a playable fashion across consoles, but we have covered some great options for Nintendo lovers.

    It's World Backup Day! Celebrate by Finally Backing Up Your Stuff

    How to Back Up and Play Your Wii Games from an External Hard Drive

    First, our guide to backing up and playing Wii games from an external hard drive lets you keep expensive discs out of harms way, decrease game load times, and organize your collection with swanky cover art.

    How to Hack Your Nintendo DS for Easy Backups and Single-Cartridge Playback

    Finally, you can also hack your Nintendo DS for easy backups, and even play a handful of great games from one simple cartridge.

    ROM POLICY / Disclaimer:

    I will not be held responsible if any mishaps while/after flashing will occur (please follow the instructions posted here to avoid issues). This Rom may or may not work for you, therefore please don’t expect full compatibility on all firmware versions (custom/stock). But theoretically it should work on all stock roms.

    By flashing this rom, you must understand that the developer reserves the right to add/omit some apps, please make sure you do a backup of your apps and a nandroid backup to restore previous installed apps.

    Lastly, you as an Android user must understand that rom development takes time and effort, therefore requests may or may not be addressed quickly but please feel free to review and send bug reports so I can sort it out by releasing update fixes.

    ABOUT THE DEVELOPER:

    I previously had a Galaxy Y and made a ROM for my personal use, I do not have this phone right now (because I sold it) but I still managed to save the custom rom I made. I will buy a Galaxy Y unit (just for testing) probably next month so I can continue making more versions of this ROM. I am keeping an eye for a customed kernel for SGY so I can integrate it with my ROM. I hope you enjoy this initial release, because I extremely enjoyed it! Thanks.

    My Inspirations for this rom are: Creed’s and Repensis Roms. Together let us make SGY’s development a fruitful and healthy environment for everyone.

    Thank you for Choosing ChobitsDigitalis ROM!
