Cruel Facts of Life

J and I have just learned from my mum that one of the key people responsible for saving Little Skywalker's life after he was born, was diagnosed with end-stage ovarian cancer. According to my mum, whom is also a personal friend, it is not operable and SHE doesn't have much longer to live. News like this always make me thinking about the cruel facts that life bring us. We can't help but ask ourselves, "Why does bad things always happen to good people?".

SHE is one of the top pediatrician in the country. SHE works in the Neonatal ICU ward (as the head of department) day in and day out at Selayang Hospital. SHE is responsible for saving and treating countless of sick newborns on a daily basis. I have been into NICU while Little Skywalker was in there, and I can honestly tell you that it is a really depressing place to be. Just imagine you have to be the one who break the bad news to parents about their newborn everyday...

One of the reason that it took so long for HER to be diagnosed was the fact that SHE was too busy with HER job. My mother recalled about HER complaining about feeling uncomfortable with HER health while we were at the NICU ward couple of years ago. Who knew back then that it would be fatal? Furthermore, SHE still has a child diagnosed with Down Syndrome...

It's time like this where we pray for a miracle to happen... and it just might if you pray hard enough...
