I must admit that many things ran across my thoughts while I was lying on the 3 different hospital beds for a total of 12 nights. It wasn't a near death ordeal but it was bad enough to make me think nonsense. I asked myself whether I would have any regrets if I had to die the next day or during the major surgery. I asked myself where was the happiest places and moments I spent. The list was very long but I can briefly say that it was standing infront of the whole Grand Canyon in Arizona when I was a student. I was so speechless and the sight was worth dying for. The other happiest days were spent with my wife when I rode on the rented motorbikes around Phuket Island and Pulau Belitong. Both occasions, it rained heavily and we both were soaked wet but my wife was singing very loudly and happily all her Cantonese songs. Those were funny and happiest memories.
I have mentioned that I was badly traumatized during my stay at the 3 hospitals. I didn't elaborate here in the social media as it is too embarrassing indeed. I shared partially in my Facebook and that was shocking enough for my friends and contacts to read. They could not imagine the ordeal and I only have myself to be blamed. The 3 hospitals were strict and did not allow any visitors which made it difficult for helpless patients like me. When I was discharged, my wife checked me into the big hotel at Sunway to relax and pamper myself with the morning's sumptuous buffet breakfasts. Look at the giant elephants that stood prominently outside the hotel. Their trunks pointed upwards which Feng Shui terms meant aiming and sucking all the wealth from above. This hotel and their shopping mall have been doing well with expansions, one after another.
The view from my hotel's room overlooked the lagoon below with many water features, It was not crowded as it was a weekday. I had fun relaxing in the room watching TV and went window shopping several times.
This photo was taken just before Christmas at the hotel's lobby. Can you guess what little gift I was holding???
It was the chemotherapy tablets given by the doctor after being discharged from hospital. I went back for follow up visits and had so far done 3 separate blood tests on different days. My blood is back to normal and healthy level with no more tumour markers. So I declined to take chemo tablets as they are too strong as the doctor wants me to take it for 112 days! My hair would be gone and all my healthy cells would be destroyed.
Meanwhile, my best friend from childhood days have been encouraging me to visit the Nano Heat Therapy Centre in Puchong again. He believes the heat therapy that penetrates our whole body at the right temperature would eliminate all the unhealthy bacteria and cancerous cells at early stage. I used to frequent this place which I had blogged HERE and it is nice that I have a friend to accompany me. We could talk for hours and laughed silly at our growing up years at school. Laughter is the best medicine too.
