Well... what started to be a happy, relaxing labor day weekend has ended in disaster. :( I went home on Friday night, had dinner with my parents, everything was great. We were going to go out with my aunt, grandma and uncle to dim sum the next morning. Then comes Saturday morning, the phone rang early in the morning. My grandma had a stroke.

My mom panicked, and we rushed over to my grandma's house. My uncle had already called 911, so the fire truck and ambulance were already at the scene. We rushed over to the hospital... turns out my grandma's right side body cannot move and she cannot talk at all. ......

This is so horrible. I've never had someone close to me... well my other grandma passed away last year, but I was not nearly as close to her as I was to this grandma. .......the feeling that suddenly you realize how fragile human lives are. The fear that this could happen to another person in my life... it's unbearable.

Anyways, my grandma is still in the ICU of the hospital, under constant care. My aunt spent the whole night at the hospital with her last night, and going to do the same tonight. My mom had been in the hospital all morning today. I went twice today too... my uncle and my cousins were there during the day. When I saw her today, she's so weak and looked ever so old... sigh.

....... I hope that tomorrow will be a better day.

曾幾何時,機場是我最討厭的地方。那時譚爸譚媽長期在亞洲,而我和弟弟則待在美國上學。一家四個人住在四個不同城市。每年暑期假回港探望他們後要回美時,爸媽都會送我機。而每次我都會忍著淚水入閘,直到他們倆看不到我時才掩臉大哭。 想不到,今天這齣戲又再上演。地點卻不再是在機場。
