Grandma is healthy!

When I found out from my brother that my grandma (aka mar yad) was in the hospital, I got on a flight to Hong Kong right away.

She had the flu and already recovered but her heart was beating irregularly, and the doctor wanted to keep her in the hospital to monitor it.  She had been there for almost a week when I arrived, she was depressed, felt abandoned, and lost her appetite.  I was not used to seeing my mar yad like this.  She has always been active, happy and healthy.  We are very close and I am her favorite grandchild.  Luckily they discharged her two days after my arrival.  She slowly gained her appetite, she was weak and we helped her walk every where.  She has always been very independent and for the first time, she let us help her bath. Slowly day by day, she improved, she started sitting up with out help, walking to the bathroom herself, it will take some time to recover completely, but she is definitely back to her cheerful piggy self :)

I am not a religious person but she is, I thank god that she is well and healthy again.  Did I mention she is 102 years old?!

Yesterday, we went to Stanley for dim sum, sat in the sun on the pier, watched fishermen collect fish, shopped and went grocery shopping.  We got our favorite, ice cream and custard tart, haha where did you think I got my genes from.  

I am grateful to have an excellent team of walkers, sitters, and manager.  Without them, I would not be able to make very last minute trip.  

I am grateful for my wonderful clients for being so understanding.

I am grateful for my boyfriend who is taking great care of my babies, Bailey and Annie!

I am lucky and I am grateful.
