Life..precious life 2...
Last two days, i called up my friend, the one who is having acute leukemia (the earlier entry about her here.) I will always make a point to call her like, once in every one or two months the very least. Her condition has not improve.
Early July she told me she went to Indonesia, advised by her relatives who is staying there, seeking for alternative medicine. She even called me from Indonesia and told me about the situation she had to go thru. It wasnt as easy as she thought, as she had to wait in a long queue and took them days to prescribe the medicines. Nevertheless, she was happy she could go somewhere, rather than sitting at home feeling bored. When she came back home, she was offered a job by her previous employer. She was very happy, being able to do part time lecturing at the college and being able to earn extra income for herself and family despite her being sick. She is very fortunate, as her present boss is very kind and very understanding. He allows her to perform her job at her own pace as at times she has to spent a few days in the hospital for the bone marrow checkup and all sorts of check up. She explained to me how is the process of poking the needle almost as big as d thumb, at her back and recently at her backside...very painful.
Recently, her boss brought her along with other staffs to Bali. "It is a very beautiful place," she said, and i told her.."owh..i so envy you, havent been there". Cracked a few jokes. ( justa turn the conversation to something more cheerful ) She laughed. Glad to hear her laugh. She told me her boss will arrange for her to go to India to seek treatment from the specialists there and also to bring her and family to London, for a holiday. Isnt that very very very nice of him? This boss was actually under her supervision when he first joined the company and she treated him well, and this favor he said, is in return to appreciate her contribution for him to climb up the ladder successfully.
I told her, oh wow, things happen for a reason... This is so good to hear. I am very delighted the amount of appreciation that her boss are willing to give, priceless!..regardless of skin colour. As for me, the least i could do is being a true friend. i dont have much, in a sense of monetary or material, to give her. I appreciate her for giving me the thought about life, kept reminding me to do the right thing.She, over and over again stress the point on how she appreciate me, for listening to her. Not that i demand for that, but i believe to appreciate oneself, we need to appreciate others, in whatever condition we are, just show it..we wont lose anything. In fact, i believe we gain more! But of course for some people or even mua have this big chunk of ego to fight with ;-p...tired of being the first to start things...now as mua life is back like the way it was .. anotha ;-p..ish no fun!
Anyways...Her baby, is now very healthy and cheerful...a brilliant baby boy....She manage to fast, as she said she dont eat a lot. At present...the doc suggested to her to increase the dose of the med from 400 to 800..double....not good..
Oh God..please keep her strong...
