My beloved, precious granny holds a special place in my heart for some reasons. She's humble, down to earth sort of woman who cares about everyone around her. She is undeniably getting older which is 90+ and she became progressively too weak recently. As it turned out, my aunt couldn't take care of her and was forced to place her into a wonderful residential care home in Penang where some other folks live. Furthermore, my aunt was working and there was nobody to look after her. It hurts to live so far from her, how I wish I got to visit her more often.
The first few days were extremely discomforting for my granny. When we visited her a fortnight ago, she was a bit restless, threw up a few times in the afternoon. All food served was strictly vegetarian, so no meat of any kind, which was not too pleasing to her taste buds. To make matters worse, she was incredibly weak, she couldn't walk and barely eat anything for fear of throwing up. She's one of the strongest women I know, so to see or hear her in such a manner makes my heart sink.
When we visited her last week, we saw some positive signs. Hooray! She's feeling so much better and walking around the residential home as if she owns it. Looks like she has adjusted remarkably fine and actually seems to like the place. She cannot walk swiftly though, so she has to walk with a walker with some assistance. She has regained the weight she lost which is a good thing indeed. That's what you get from a healthy vegetarian diet I guess.
Sigh! Now looking at these, I just can't imagine myself living in an extreme old age. That said, I think 70+ would be an ideal age for me, but do you have the right to say goodbye to the world? Regardless, death does not discriminate between young or old. People of all ages die.
Suffice to say, thanks for reading and please keep my granny in your prayers that she will regain some strength and uplift her spirits in good time.
