My life as a Malaysian doctor in the United States.
Thursday, October 18, 2007
Sometimes, when things happen, life just suddenly seems to come to a standstill. A moment frozen in time.
Today was one of them. No, although I wasn't thrilled by how tough the exam was, that's not what I'm referring to. Someone close to me just shared a piece of bad news. That hit Kris and I like a bolt from the blue.
The last time I felt this utter shock, and numbness and fear, was when Mom told me of Dad's cancer diagnosis 11 years ago.
Tonight, Kris and I spent some time holding each other, shedding some tears. We will allow for this tonight. However, come tomorrow, there's only one thing we can do- to band together, to be strong, to pray and to overcome this.
(if this seems vague, it's meant to be)
