And Back Again

Just back from visiting Mak in hospital since she's been readmitted this afternoon. I suppose the doctors felt it best to make sure she was home for Hari Raya and knew there was a fair chance they'd be seeing her again soon. Her breathing speeded up again last night, so getting her back where she can be properly monitored was obviously the way to go.

Mind you, the ward she returned to was so busy with visitors that it's difficult to imagine any of the patients getting much rest unless they are completely knocked out. It's great to be in a culture that places such a high value on acknowledging and tending to the sick, but it's easy to see how that creates its own kind of demands on those who are ill.
