Discussion thread on fund raising for Charmaine is up:
We need more ideas, and more funding for our dear Charmaine. I have also approached a public funding,pending for a medical social worker to submit the application form up. However, such fundings are usually only applicable for patients in Singapore, we are hoping that they can understand why we need to send Charmaine to US, since Singapore hospitals could not provide for that.
As for Charmaine, minus the hair drops, you basically cannot see that her body is fighting with the monster right now. She keeps jumping, webcaming, eating, demanding for Yakult, Meiji Milk etc . She has put on quite a bit of weight, and her cheeks are so chubby right now. Very cute. Today, she stopped me from heading home and said I had to go to her place before I can go home. So, almost reaching her place, Char called my cellphone.
"Hello, Charlene jiejie, where are you? Why so late haven come?"
"I am in the lift (ok, i lied), coming up, you count to 10 ok?"
So when I was at the doorstep, the kids shrieked out loud for dont-know what reason. And Cynthia was very amused that Charmaine really counted 1 to 10 by the door after we hanged up the phone.
The treatments by Charmaine also meant that Jase do not have a proper schedule to follow, and studying wasnt the top priority for any of the two kids. Jase has spelling test the next day, learning : Noodles, Cereals and Biscuits. I wonder who he has the genes from, but everytime without fail, when i take a book to him, it takes less than 3 secs to hear him saying, later, tired etc.
But it is also very interesting to see how he skips no opportunity to impress his mum, Cynthia. He stood there, memorising the three words, wrote them down a couple of times, until I was sure that he remembered all, and let him show off to Cynthia. And all it takes, was less than 15mins =D
After that, there is nothing more to say, except, PLAYTIME! We rolled, jumped, curled around the bed and mattresses, until Charmaine's hair was soaking wet.
Till tomorrow then, lovelies!
