Like the title says,Happy New Year.. Technically, Chinese New Year(Gong Hai Fat Choi!!!) has just come,so it is still New Year.. Just a month later! Life has caught up with me,and over the course of the Christmas period has sped up on me and I’ve been busy worrying about so many things.
Christmas 2018 and the days before were spent going to and from the hospital where my mother was having surgery to remove an abscess near her spine. She was suffering a lot of back pain more than usual, and felt a lump at her lower back. She got admitted, and waited for the surgery,which was done on December 23rd. Which meant observations (due to her being diabetic) were to be done over Christmas, as well as organising community nurses to change the dressing of the wound. Special shoutout to the staff at Kings College Hospital, Denmark Hill! They really looked after her and tried to make the Christmas less daunting for the patients in hospital!
Here is Christmas 2018 in pictures:
And the sick patient and me-
So that was Christmas 2018. Cold,quiet,and not really eventful. But at least we were alive,things could have been worse.. Hope your Christmas was a lot better!
