I met with Syida

Two weeks after the posting about Syida, finally I was able to pay her a visit last Sunday together with another ex-colleague.

We go with a heavy heart. Our first impression seeing Syida after seven long years was, she doesn't look like she's in pain; she greeted us with warm and great smile. Syida is such a fighter!

From our two-hour conversation, we got to know her current condition is not so favourable. She can sense the tumor is growing, because it started to affects her writing ability; if without persistent self-help exercising, the complication towards her daily life will be much greater.

So far, the fund accumulated is still way too low to achieve her wish to perform the surgery in US…

Sometimes we are at a loss as to what part we might play in our friend life when they are sick, especially when the sickness goes on for a longer period of time than just the flu.

I only hope my tiny efforts and few simple words of encouragement do help her to get past the bad time.

After hearing so much of her stories, it makes me realized how lucky and blessed I am.
