Today, at this exact time, Grandma will go back to Padang,West Sumatra to have her second surgery. She was diagnosed for intestine tumor 2 years ago and she had them taken away.
She came back home to Jakarta to live with us again. But she felt a new kind of pain about 6 months ago. The pain had caused her acute anemia, her hb level was 1,9 at that time, and was brought to hospital. She spent a week at the hospital and had 2750 ml of blood transfusion.
We brought her back a day before Idhul Fitri. It wouldn’t be fun to celebrate Idhul Fitri (one of Islamic HOLY-days) in hospital.
We all decided that she must go back to Padang to meet the same doctor that had treated her 2 years ago. He would know what best for her new pain. grandpa will accompany her to Padang.
We don’t know how long she will leave us, hopely not for long. Mommy will be all alone again for several months 😦 of course we will be there to cheer her up just like before. We will bring smile to her face and we will always listen to her when she tells us her current feeling.
Get well soon Grandma…we will terribly miss you and Grandpa here.
