lately, mom disovered that kong kong is beginning to get bedsore - where the bacteria devour you of your flesh till it gets to the bone. ewe. that's the worst kind of thing to get before someone dies. i've known quite a number of people who got bedsore and it usually leads to death. it only happens to old people who are bedridden. my great-grandfather was one of them. the flesh rots and it slowly eats your life away. usual place to get bedsore is the back side of the body. according to kong kong, it hurts alot. i've never actually seen one but i can imagine how it looks like. in the case of kong kong, i guess it's no different. everyone in the family is expecting him to "go". not in a looking-forward-to-it sense but i guess everyone understands. so they (aunties and uncles) decided to send him to the hospital for consultation and see what's wrong with him, despite the fact that they know he won't last long. so far, i've only heard news about him getting cologne cancer or leukimea. it sucks. nothing can be confirmed yet though. the doctor hasn't really done the necessary procedures and scans. mum's the one who's the worst affected by this cause mom has a really close relationship with kong kong and i can only imagine her sitting by his hospital bedside talking to him, with tears of sorrow rolling down her cheeks. the only reason i can think of why when someone is about to die, they get diagnosed with all sorts of diseases, i's because of the sins they have made throughout their life. i guess it's God's way of letting them know the meaning of pain before they die. God's plan. we can do nothing about it.
dad, grace and edmund has left for church. it's friday and we have "Way of The Cross" to attend. and i'm skipping it with the reason that i just drank the disgusting medicine and i'll probably fall asleep halfway during mass. how unholy of me. after that, they're heading for a wake. a friend's (from choir) grandmother passed away. Aunt Julie (the choir secretary or something) organised a prayer session tonight at the wake. we're supposed to go, but instead, i'm sitting here, typing this, feeling absolutely nauseuos after consuming the horrible medicine!! and mum is at the hospital. so it's only the three of them there with the other choir members who can make it. of course, after that, they'll take a trip down to the hospital to visit kong kong, and i'm not there with them. we're the closest family living nearby, so we have to see, i'm missing so many things when i'm sick.
