I want to wish all my buddies a
VERY HAPPY AND PEACEFUL
Thank you for your greetings.
This is quite a crazy time for my family and me.
My Dad 's elder brother 's widow
80+ year old Aunt Virginia was in pain since
Dec 21st.Mama and I are her only relatives. (She does not have children
and her brother 's children don 't care.)
We got a doctor to examine her and it was discovered that she has
fractured her hip bone and needs to have a steel
rod inserted through surgery.
On Dec 31st we got her admitted in the hospital.
Jan 1st was a crazy day as we had to arrange for a
blood donor. My Pastor and his wife were a tremendous help. Around midnight he found a donor.
The surgery was scheduled for Jan 2nd at 9 am.
We all assembled in the hospital ,
the nurses prepared auntie.
Prayers were said and we waited for them to wheel
her into the OT.
After a long wait (10.30am)
they told us that the operation
has been postponed till Jan 3rd. as
one of the surgeons on the team took off on an emergency leave.
So we have to go through the whole process this morning which is very draining emotionally and physically.
Apart from all this I 've been
trying to juggle other activities like
a birthday celebration
a wedding reception
a pre-wedding ceremony (today Jan 3)
a cousin 's wedding (Jan 5th)
guests and visitors
Taking care of Mom 's needs and
Sonia is a great help.
Please pray for Aunt Virginia.
The doctors have cautioned us that the surgery
is risky due to her age is weak physical condition.
We are very anxious and worried because of that.
