My Poor Mama..

I have been on the phone with my sister these two days since mama's admission to the local hospital back in Sabah.  Mama is admitted for her yearly colonoscopy procedure, the previous one being done at UMMC exactly a year ago.  Having overheard our conversation, my boy was curious about his popo's condition and had been asking if it was Cancer that landed popo in hospital.

Ian: Mommy, when I grow up, I want to become a creator (scientist) and make a machine that can suck all the cancer (cells) out from popo's body.
Mommy: *Amused* How boy? How do you go about that?
Ian: I will put a device (wonder where he learned this word from) on popo's wrist and it will do its job by sucking all the cancer (cells) out from the body.
Mommy: *mumbles* If only it could be that simple, boy..

My poor mama is still in the hospital after undergoing the procedure last evening.  The report was out and they found some polyps or was it just a single tiny one in her remaining colon, she had a hemicoloctemy 18 months ago.  They had taken some samples for biopsy.  I only have this little information from my sister and hopefully she can get an elaborated one tomorrow.  Having undergone a CT scan 6 months ago in Kota Kinabalu with an all clear result, I am quite positive that the polyps found in mama's colon would likely be benign (non cancerous).  My poor mama cannot possibly endure another round of chemo treatment.   Now I really hope there's really a machine that can suck all those evil trouble makers out from mama's body...

I hope popo is strong and happy to grow through the storm.. give her a lot of love and concern that will be easier for her.

you know the future of the things to come,most of the time comes from the absurdity of a child's dream, who knows one day, Ian will be just the hero to wipe off cancer from the face of this earth,, and he shall be crowned the "inventor" of the whole human kind...

keep it up Ian, uncle eugene will always have faith in you.....

stp, Sheoh Yan, MG, Mommy Ling, small kucing,Carol, Yvonne, Barb : Thanks. Most likely harmless polyps according to the preliminary result but the biopsy result will only be out in 3 weeks.

Annie: I don't look like a Sabahan, do I? Hahaha..
