Today is 2nd day of Chinese New Year, we got a bad news from my brother in law. He sent sms to say that his wife who is my 4th sister has admitted to hospital just now. I have not been seeing her since I have moved up. Last time we use to meet up on every Saturday, but after moved up I had my own dinner.
From what we know now is she got fever and her stomach got air. We decided to visit her after dinner.
On the afternoon, we have our own Chinese New Year visiting plan. I and my family went to visit my parent in law. Carmen is very busy on carrying all the soft toys and walk around the house. One of the soft toys is as big as her size. We went home after few hours to do bathing and straight go to the restaurant for dinner. Very difficult to find a Chinese restaurant do business during Chinese New Year. If you manage to find it does not mean that they do your business, because most of the tables are booked. And the restaurant dinning hour is set to 6pm and 8pm, which mean you either come at 6pm or 8pm for your dinner.
After dinner, we proceeded to hospital. Three cars from here, so imaging how many peoples will crowd inside the room? When we reached the hospital, we saw my 2nd brother, his wife and my niece just reach the parking bay. Plus another 3 person, let me count, 14 adult and 3 children.
When we reached the room, we are asked to be seated in the waiting room because the nurse wanted to do something on my sister. We waited for 10 minutes. Half of us went into the room, the remaining half wait inside the waiting room.
I saw my sister lying down on the bed, her cheek is very red and her stomach is slightly big, got air. For me, she looked fine, she can talk as usual, and only thing is walk. We all suspect dengue, but still have to wait for the doctor report then only can confirm. After a few minutes, the other half of people in the waiting room all come into this room. My eldest brother in law first thing he do is starting praying by holding one of her hand. The praying speech is about 1-2 minutes. Almost everyone is asking the same question, how do you feel today? What did the doctor say? Are you getting better today? Questions are repeated, but it show that everyone is very care of her.
We gather in the room for half and hour and feel that the room is a bit warm. I the first one to go first because Carmen just did a ‘Big Business’, got to go home to wash it. We all wish that you will get well soon, as what my brother in law said, ‘God will bless you and your family members as well’. Take care.
