KSC: A surreal coincidence in the operating theatre

SIX hours past midnight I read about the friendly host of (KSC) where sometimes I roam to and get some cyber treat and most important of all, an education, and if lucky, a rare sharing of innermost thoughts. This morn's is "CONCERNING" news for me; though I have not met KSC personally, it seems we know each other wellA, enough to make myself at home wit' his endless rounds of coffee (tehtarik2 on XXpecial request...). I left a note at his Blog saying I would pray heART for his continued wellbeing.

Please visit him there/dare, will ye, KSC needs your  prayers&support!?  ~~ YL, Desi

A surreal coincidence in the operating theatre

As I was wheeled into the operating theatre, a member of the OT team recognised my nose (last seen, probably some 15 years ago), despite my dramatic loss in weight (from 80+ to 58 kg). She checked my name, and took off her mask and asked, 'Are you Cheng Boon's father?' 'Yes.' I replied. 'Is she coming back?' 'No' without finishing with, 'but she will be post operation'.

That brief conversation set into motion a vital link which proved to be so useful because of my unexpected prolonged surgery (from 2 hours to 6 hours) because of need to resussitate me and blood transfusion. Whenever possible she informed my daugher Cheng in Geneva, who informed her brother in PJ, who then informed my wife, anxiously waiting for news. Just imagine her anxiety, if not for this almost real time information, and she were kept in the dark throughout the 6 hours! I do not think, if pre-planned, it could have worked out so well.  

First hurdle cleared, next battle is chemotherapy, which I have 2 to 3 weeks to build my body up to it.

I will be avoiding the computer and handphone as much as possible. So this blog, which had not been updated recently, will continue to be slack in the next few months.

I wish to thank my followers and visitors for their past support and hope they will bear with me during this period.
