Gloomy weather + tragic death = I need a DRINK, badly!

today's weather in kl is gloomy. it is still drizzling. plus this morning moody blues, plus a tragic news i got at lunch time is just too much for me to handle for a day. i did not start the day right today, with all the leftover dilenma from yesterday about the business partnership with my friend.

10.00am - dilenma still playing in my mind while I was driving to Kepong for my prayers

11.00am - arrived at the temple to pray "thai suey" and managed to block out the
dilenma temporarily

12.30noon - mother told me her sifu's 5 year old boy was at his last breath...my heart
froze

i know the boy; i know his parents too. such a young couple; in their mid thirties. he was an obedient boy; a clever one too. he had a fall at his kindergarten, about 13 flight of stairs down. i do not know the details whether the school informed the parents about the fall or the parents knew about the fall but they waited awhile before thinking of sending him to the doctor as he showed no serious symptoms.

3 days ago, the boy had a fall in school. 2 days ago, the boy vomitted in the morning and the school had to call his aunt to pick him up from school as he was crying non stop. that night, he was taken to the doctor and admitted to ICU. he never left the ward. hid soul finally left the ward this noon. tragic! tragic! such a sweet and innocent child. and he is someone i know and that makes it worse for me. when my mom called his mother on her mobile, mom told me her only sentence was , "he can go anytime now". this reminds me of the movie "city of angels". the angels ( i bet the boy had pretty angels waiting for him) were waiting to take him at his death bed. i hope enroute, he would be kept warm and be strong and not be afraid to make his journey. afterall, he was leaving behind his parents whom he had never been away alone before. in my heart, i wish him a good journey but i could not bring myself to think of his parents; how heartwrecked they must be now. he was their ONLY child.

i suddenly missed my baby a lot upon hearing the news.

i make it a point to always give her a morning hug before school. who knows what the day brings and how it will end.

a fall is not to be taken lightly. the vomitting and crying are telltales of something is amiss. a long time ago, i read in the papers that a young girl went on a roller coaster ride. it was her first and last ride. she complaint of dizziness and vomitted after a few days and lapsed into coma. it seemed that she had brain haemmorhage during the ride as it was too much an excitement for her.

sigh. when my mom comes back from the hospital later, i think i not only need a drink; i need a cocktail of cough syrup + whatever i can find in the "special" cupboard. more heartbreaking news......................

    So sad hear about the little boy. I'm speechless. There will be lots of "what if" thoughts and comments. Won't bring back the little boy though.
