妈在疗养院。。。 Mum at Nursing Home…
Since mid-May mum suffered a fall and broke her thigh bone till now, it has been half a year, the elderly really must not fall as even after the operation, she still cannot walk on her own…
Due to her immobility, these few months my sisters who live in Kuching have been taking turns to take care of and serve her, it is not an easy feat… I can only support in spirit and finance…
But this month, my eldest sister has to go for an operation herself (she is already a grandma herself(, my 2nd and 3rd sister both have mission trips… So when we were at our wits’ end, and after discussing with mum, we all thought the best and safest option was to let her stay at a nursing home temporarily for a few weeks… Consequently she had moved into Kuching Lions Nursing Home even when I was still in Taiwan, it has been one week now and will stay till Jan 13th before she returns to my eldest sister’s home…
We of course studied the facilities, environment etc of the nursing home first, plus with mum’s willingness, before we let her stay there for a while… They have regular meal times, exercise, physio-therapy, training etc, and within just a short one week, there is obvious improvement in mum’s countenance, legs etc…
I visit her everyday, and on my first day I was not used to the environment, so I wanted to contact friends to somehow look for a nurse who can stay at my house to look after my mum and move her back to my place… As a result, mum rejected the idea, reason being: she would feel like a bird trapped in a cage at my place!!!
Hahaha, that is because she has new friends to talk to over there, regular exercise, games and many brothers and sisters who come to visit her, so she feels life is not that boring there!
My sister said who knows in the end she does not even feel like coming home! Haha!
See we photographed ourselves yesterday!
Some saw thw above photo and said I really look like my mum, do you think so? And there are some who think I look more like my dad, what say you? (Dad is already in heaven now…)
