A Precious Human Life

"Everyday, think as you wake up"
Today i'm fortunate to have woken up, I'm alive, i have a precious human life, i'm not going to waste it, i'm going to use it, all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, i'm going to have kind thoughts towards others, i'm not going to get angry or to think badly about others, i'm going to benefit others as much as i can.

I'm posting this entry with a heavy heart...last thursday, hubby and i brought damien to KK Eye Center to have his eyes checked...the doctor discovered a white mass behind the len of his left eye (which is his smaller eye) and he recommended that we bring him back on Wednesday (tmr) for a CT scan before he can properly diagnose his condition...my hubby and my world collapsed when we hear from the doctor that this is not common and normal at all...this is our bb boy he is talking about...how can this happen to a baby???....with many whys and ?? in our head, we headed home...when my dad heard of this, he immediately link us up to his eye specialist doctor who in-turn recommended us Dr. Yvonne Ling who is a Paed in this area...we saw her that saturday at Camden Medical...after performing a B-Scan, she told us that 90% is not retinoblastoma, which in layman's term, eye cancer...however, she insisted that we bring damien for the CT scan to rule out that possibility...so tmr, we will be bringing damien back to KK for the scan and also to see Dr. Quah Boon Long who is the head in this department...i'm fortunate to have very strong support from my family members and my frens and colleagues at Future Electronics...i know that they are with me and damien every step of the way...and i have to be strong for him whatever the outcome is...thanks guys for your support and prayers...do continue to pray for us as we walk through this difficult period...thanks!
