Yes, I made it back to America after spent 3weeks with my family in Penang, Malaysia. The trip went well accept need to deal with the corrupted policeman, black mail and bad meals on the plane of course.
Obviously, I need more time to adjust to my local time as for now 3+am and I am still fully awake writing this blog though but no matter what I love the weather here especially next to my love.
Still remember the moment I got the scary mid night call from Penang regarding dad’s seriously ill and did not sleep for the whole night then get on the next available flight to Penang on 09/28.
Landed Penang on 09/29 and still managed to take care of Dad for 3days. I do not mind the sleepless night and it all worth it. Managed to give me a wonderful and comfortable moment such as feeding him, changing diaper, give him medication, pray and talk with him. I feel very comforting especially I saw he is touching the blanket that I brought him even his eyes hardly open. Then eight of us witness his last breath while we were praying for him.
Is amazing that as soon as his passing and each one of us being so knowledgeble to play our part to move the furniture around and cover the mirror with white papers. And within 2hrs the bell from Church is rung and I obtained his death certificate already. Then the fellow Christian came to pray for him in English and Mandarin. Also relatives and friends sending him lots of flowers. What a co-incident that the band plays Dad’s favorite music which is the theme of ‘The Spirit of Love’ on the funeral day.
In additional, I am lucky enough that my company allow me to extend my time off although there are under staffs. Thus I managed to spent additional 2weeks with Mom and help her to tossed, organized her stuffs and also accompany her. I understand 2weeks wasn’t enough but this is the best I can do at this time.
