I am staring at death (2) ..................

Tuesday, September 23rd 2008.

Over the previous few days, I received tremendous support from friends in the form of words of encouragement, prayers, recommendations, visits, etc. The out pouring of support was something that I under-estimated. There was indeed hope in humanity. To all my friends, I am deeply appreciative of the moral support.

I have also come to terms with my health and eventuality. Whatever it is, I just need to be brave, and be positive in handling setbacks. One thing for sure, I will not let everybody down, especially my family members, I will fight like a tiger.

I am now on a strict diet recommended by the Dietitian. The objective is to arrest my declining weight, increase the weight, and to built up my body to prepare for eventual medical treatment.

Yesterday, I went to an independent laboratory to have a full blood test with cancer markers. In about 30 days time, I will go back to the same laboratory to have another blood test. The objective is to measure my “performance” on monthly basis. The positive things from the blood test is, my cancer marker reading went down. My weight lost miraculously stopped, and I actually gained 0.3kg over the previous 5 days.

Tomorrow will be another emotional day for me where I will know whether the cancer has spread to the liver. I guess, whether it is going to be good news or otherwise, I will be able to take it from there.

At the moment, I am still soliciting second opinions and evaluating what best possible medical options I can adopt to tackle this medical problems. Hopefully, by next week, I should be able to adopt a medical option and strategy as my next course of action to win this battle against cancer.

For the time being, I do hope the Almighty up there listen to my prayers............ Will I win this battle ? Times will tell................................. In the mean time, do pray for me.........

Om Namo Amithaba Buddha.

Kau Foo,

am saddened to hear about your medical condition. This news is very difficult to accept.

News like this remind us that life is precious and fragile. It is a gift from God - noone can rightfully claim that they are entitled to be alive. We must be thankful for each day spent with our loved ones and cherish the opportunities to show others that we care about them. Noone is immortal and it is up to us how we choose to utilise this gift of life.

I pray for this to be a blessing in disguise...that beyond the bleakness and sadness it brought, it will also bring happiness, joy, and a new life.

Will keep you in my prayers and thoughts. Do post updates on your blog!
