A Good News and a Thank You

Half an hour ago, while I’m with my grandmother (who suffered a massive stroke two days ago) in the Emergency Room, I saw her eyes open. After a few moments, she began to move her hands slightly. I called the doctors to inform them that my grandmother have regained consciousness.

The doctors immediately performed a series of tests. They then told me that her condition has improved. Now, she could breathe without the assistance of a ventilator, but just to be on the safe side, it won’t be removed until a few days later. Her condition is now classified as “serious” instead of “critical”. It’s still far from stable, but its a progress nonetheless.

While she can’t speak, she could nod her head and smile. I was warned yesterday that she may not be able to regain consciousness for at least a few weeks, or at all. Thus, this is a welcome development.

The road to recovery will be arduous, but my grandmother is a tough woman so I believe that she will be able to overcome the coming challenges.

I would like to thank all of you who offered prayers and encouragement when I talked about this yesterday. It means a lot to me. Even though I am not interacting with you personally right now, I can feel your support from here.

Now, I think that I should head home as I haven’t gotten any sleep since last year (well, since New Year’s eve). My regular blogging schedule will resume tomorrow.

  1. This is good news Edmark. A glimmer of hope. I will keep your grandmother in my prayers – I have known many people in 2019 who have suffered devastating medical issues. Sadly my prayer list has grown very long and carried over to 2020 – Linda.

  2. Hong Kong hospitals are nightmare, glad she is in safe hands. Wish her speedy recovery. QE, PM, QM and most of bigger hospitals always crowded. Try Union Hospital on Shatin this will be much better in service next time if need arise. Get well soon to granny and God bless and long life. Cheers. 🌷
