I am seriously enraged by the security guard who just shooed me away when my mum needed me the most at this hour. It was already 11:15pm when the guard came for a thorough check in each ward.
Mum really needed my company as the operation will be held in less than 7.5 hours from now. How could the nurse be so atrocious to separate my mum and I at this hour? I will not make a single noise. I just want to sit at the corner to look after my mum. Why must she further aggravate my mum’s fear of being alone in the hospital? Why must she cause me to drive to and from hospital which took me a blardy long 40 minutes home? Now, I have to wake up at 6am the next morning.
I wish I could file a complaint against her but I cannot. It will be absurd to do such a thing. Hospital policy is a policy to be followed. They need to act justly to all patients and visitors. Hence, I must be rationale. Darn!
Now, I must say that establishing a supreme friendship at this age of mid-20s is essential. In times of trepidation and agitation, my closest buddies were there to support me spiritually and morally. Being aware of my anxiety, these people are the ones who offered words of encouragement and ensured me to stay strong despite the situation.
I must give credits and recognition to my world-class friends like Chen, Yin, Kim, Gerald, Isaac, SanJay, Nicholas, Lizzie, Abang Cicak Mike and many more. Thank you for your text messages and prayer support. Thank you so much for your listening ears and ringing me up to check whether I am okay.
Your thoughtful concerns are incomparable and I sincerely offer a heart of gratitude to you. Without you, I would not be able to be much more confident than yesterday. Because of you guys, you took away my fear and reassured me that my mum will come home safely. Words cannot describe how grateful I am to you guys. It’s just beyond description.
Isn’t it wonderful to have friends in times of need?
I guess you have your own friendship story to tell too.
