A Friday Vista



Just came back from the hospital in Singapore with my mum.

It was good to see Dr Tan again. My mum has been seeing him every few weeks since early 1999, since I was 12 years old. I think it's safe to say we think he's a member of the family now. I cannot say enough about Dr Tan, he is the most intelligent, compassionate, friendly and selfless doctor on the planet, and he has a great sense of humour :).

As for the latest news, she went in for blood tests, x-rays and ultrasounds today on her chest to get the latest on what's going on with the tumours and the fluid in her lungs. He assured us there are are still plenty of treatments available still after all; we were worried given the fact she's been having treatment since we lived in Australia back in the dark ages.

I'll be going back with her tomorrow for her to start the chemo regime again. Let's hope it has less side effects than the last one and doesn't take away all her energy.

Whew, this subject is a bit depressing. Here's a funny promotional picture for Windows Vista:
