There's nothing much to update but I know that friends are pretty anxious and eager to know what the results are. It is confirmed that Mr D has cancer. What stage and how bad, we've yet to be explained. We have been told that the surgeons are looking into the matter to decide what treatment is best for him.
In my last entry, I mentioned that Mr D has had a procedure for a filter to be put in through his neck. No, it was never done. The procedure, apparently, is quite risky. Therefore, to prevent the blood clot from travelling upwards, they are giving him Heparin via a tube through his arm. This medication has not taken effect, so his left leg is swelling up. Imagine walking with that!
I have seen the pictures of his oesophagus - all swelled up with pus. It's no wonder that he can't get anything down it.
Dear friends have been texting me, asking how I'm holding up. Well, apart from the house being in a mess, things are okay. I may be crying, but it doesn't affect my daily activities - just some housechores not done because I spend less time at home now. Yesterday morning, I had tears in my eyes which couldn't be hidden from my Little D. He looked at me and asked, "Kenapa Mama nangis?"
He waited for an answer but I couldn't find anything to say.
Suddenly, my little boy had grown into a sensible and mature boy. He said, "Sebab Abah sakit ye? Tak pe, kita doalah..."
Come on, Mama... "Tak pe, kita doalah..." And that's what I'm doing.
