Undelighted news...

Not that this is important to anyone here, or have any relevancy to Geekzone. I would just like to express my feeling here to everyone and in hope to find strength and morale support from fellow Geekzoners. And also in hope that this message may inspire as many readers as possible to take care of your health and cherish every bit of moment in your life regardless if happiness or sadness.

Just of today, mid morning to be exact. I got the news from my sister telling me that my mother's cancer CT scan result was not of a delight news at all. My mother have survived two and a bit years of ovarian cancer, after the surgery and chemotherapy, all seem good and well. Until a month ago, when she had her scheduled 3-monthly blood checkup, her CD125 blood count showed irregularity, with the measurement of 3x the normal level (150).

This striked a concern and the oncology doctor scheduled my mother on a CT scan to see what sort of activity had happened.

The news that we got today, the result showed that the cancer has spread to her lung and her liver. I know tonight when I head home, it will not be great and this will haunt us all as we do not know what may happen next, or shortly. I have informed my work that I may have to work from home a couple of days a week and the work will look into this and make suitable arrangement that suit me and my family.

The fact that I would like to share this with you all is because, I lost my father 3 years ago, just few days after my mother had her cancer surgery done. My dad survived 7 years of cancer but the frailed body finally gave up the battle and can no longer battle further. And since then, we all are very concern of my mother's condition and everyday we live in hope that a miracle will happen and that she may be given more time, or a new chance to her health, and pro-long her life just a little bit more.



My message to you all here today is, please do take good care of your health, you are only given one life and that's all. Do sensible things, have a healthier lifestyle, spend more time with family and friends, reconcile any past hatred and anger, and forgive and forget. Cherish each others' best and say a much "Thank you" and "I love you" to your loved one. It doesn't cost anything more than appreciation of one another. These are the things that you will lose once they're gone.

I lost my father and my grandfather not too long ago, and they are the people that I can never see them day to day anymore but forever living in my heart and my memories. I would give all ounce of wealth, just to see them for another minute if I can and knowing that the moment will be like eternity despite the short live of moment.

Sorry to hear that Kelvin. My best hopes for your mother and family.

Kelvin, instead of saying "sorry" I think "thanks" is more appropriate.

Thank you for your message.

Thank you guys! There can never be enough "thanks" in the world and the richest person in the world is not measured by wealth but by number of true friends and people that appreciate each other for their great value. I now feel that richness when among you all (although it's a poor week for me! LOL).

Once again, I truly thank you all.

My thoughts are with you and your family. Thanks for the inspirational words. This turned into a very long comment, so I cut it out and emailed you instead.

All the best Kelvin to yourself and mum.

Had a good chat with my mother tonight. We'll be waiting to hear from doctor as to when she will need to do a biosy (spelling?) on the liver cells. After that, then a schedule of chemotheraphy wil be decided. Let's us all hope for the best. And thank you all for your warmth supports.

All the best to you and your mother, Kelvin. All too often we take it for granted that our loved ones will be here from one day to the next, but the reality is that we're a lot more vulnerable than we realise.
