Granny

We booked apartment in Malacca since last year. But something bad happened.
Early May, I got a bad news when I was at work. Granny. She collapsed in her house while making beverage to drink with some breads. No one was at home (in Muar) and luckily my aunt (she has one leg only) asked some kids who always be in her internet cafe to look for granny. Usual routine, ask her what she wants for lunch. Then, the kids ran back to aunt and told her this bad news.
When I knew about this, I couldn’t just go like that. My leave was limited and I need to plan it carefully. Furthermore, boss won’t allow me to take leave immediately. We must apply 3 days before, and needed to be approved by the boss.
I told mom, that we should just stick to the plan to Malacca since we have booked, and visited granny at the same time. As we planned, we drove from home 2.30am on Friday and reached there around 10am. As soon as we reached, aunt ordered breakfast and we just went to the hospital straight from her internet cafe. Yeah, no shower!
When reached there, and saw granny -- I really couldn’t help but cry. I still remember the last time I met her, she cried and said “Please come and visit me soon, I’m afraid there is not much time left…”. I guess she knew what is going to happen.

Look at her :(

Please folks, pray for her. I hope she will get well soon… Amin.

  1. It is really a heartbreaking sight to see the one we loved so helplessly unwell. and not knowing when the situation will improve is another burden. I just pray your granny is strong and has a speedy recovery. You must stay strong too!

  11. Bro, bila kita dah tua dan uzur nanti, tiada apa yang lebih bermakna dan berharga daripada senyuman dan kujungan dari ahli ahli keluarga.... biaknay kita memupuk kasih sayang darpada sekarang juga..

    bro, i can understand that

  12. oh my faisal... honestly.. i am crying now and it's not a joke..
    i am a granny's boy.. i grew up spending most of my time with her...
    what makes me cry now is because we both have the same condition..( not exactly the same because mine is quite worst)
    my granny is suffering from lung cancer... she also lost her sight...
    and she almost forgot everything..
    i am lucky enough that she still recognize me...
    i visit her everyday..
    just like what you said.. we can't do nothing but pray..
    it's the only powerful tool we could have...
    hope your granny will get well soon..
    will include her in my prayers

  24. eugene - i'm shock. didn't know you can speak good malay :)

    correct bro.

    i always heard people say to me "if you're not married, who is going to take care of you when you're old?"

    i did survey by myself.

    i realize, nowadays, most people leave their parent who have long life in old folks home. it's a sad thing but most of them work far away and to quit the job and stay with parent without any income is really can't make sense (i know they get great blame from people around, badly).

    so, do you really thing marriage and raise kids can guarantee a future? i doubt. what we can do is only hope... and pray that our lives will be different.

  30. ixora - benda yang paling ditakuti aialah jatuh sakit macam ni. apa yang boleh kita ikhtiarkan, jaga diet dan buat senaman. tapi semua tu ketentuan tuhan... oh ya, lagi satu kena banyak membaca. kajian menunjukkan orang yang tidak membaca mendapat percentage yang paling tinggi untuk mendapat stroke!
