A Celebration of Life, Courage and Endless Love...

Happy Birthday to my one and only princess Char! Thank you for coming into my life this very day 6 years ago.

I am burned out from blogging hence I have been taking a long break away from this. I'm sorry.

Char is relatively okay. We had a wonderful birthday celebration on Sunday with the help from Sentosa Resort Worlds and 2 amazing friends of Char. Despite the pain, Char never failed to smile for everyone who turned up at her party.

The last few days have been a little more challenging because she has been experiencing more pain but my little girl doesn't complain easily and still wouldn't. I gotta read her facial expression to gauge her comfort level because she is pretty good at suffering in silence.

We are home and Jase went back to school. Char is unable to walk and on loads of morphine. In between all our insanity, we strive to have some normalcy and pretend that everything is OKAY!

I will hopefully find the strength and the patience to update more often... But I guess right now, escaping from blogging is like escaping from cancer since I don't want to face it...

PLEASE DON'T STOP PRAYING for my little princess. Argh, I'm tearing again! I honestly cannot type this darn blog without tearing! It's so tough! Forgive me when I don't update. :-(

I'm scared to hell but I continue to pretend life is normal and everything will be okay! We are just taking a longer then usual journey, walking a longer path then others but everything will be OKAY. It has to be, right?

Anything that can help you, Char and the rest to relieve resistance is a good thing. You don't have to apologize for not wanting to write. You don't have to apologize for wanting to live the way you want. You don't need others approval for what your are doing. You can't focus on the problem to find solution. You have to focus on the solution to find solution. And there is not one way to Rome.I read an encouraging story in a local newspaper yesterday, a women who had breast cancer in Singapore was given 24 hour to live, she was not given any medicine because doctors thought nothing could help. She continued to live for another week without any medical intervention. She started to eat and her skin tone return to normal and was released from hospital. She continued to live for another 4 years before the cancer came back. Doctors couldn't explain why. The story was told by a social worker. Another patient who had a different type of cancer experienced similar situation, he is still alive today after doctors gave up on him long ago. Both patients gave up the "fight" and invited peace into their heart, that's when the miracle happened. In war, there is no peace. They lived with no resistance and expected the best. Resistance or negative emotions are obstacles to the flow of life. "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones." Says the bible. When we make our body into a battlefield, there is no win/win situation. Only peace, love and joy can chase the darkness away. When we hate, we can't love. Happy birthday Char. Take care and God bless.
