Sad News

I called my mom on Sunday to wish her Happy Mother's Day. While I was excited to share I had done for her, she brought me a bad news. I was speechless after I heard that. MY COUSIN BROTHER HAD PASSED AWAY.

Until now, I still cannot believe it really happened. My cousin brother was only 27 and he died of leukemia. It was too late when the leukemia was diagnosed. It has reached the final stage. The doctor suggested him to undergo chemotherapy immediately where a total of 4 shots would be given. However, my cousin brother started to be losing consciousness after the first shot of chemo. He even told his father (my uncle) that he couldn't take it no more. After he was given the third shot, he went into unconsciousness. In ICU, his body temperature and heart beats kept going down, down, down .... and he was gone ....

He was a very unfortunate boy in all his life, except he had all the love from my grandma because he was the firstborn son in the family. His parents had divorced at his young age and he had a broken family since then. His father had to work else where to make a living and left him with my grandpa and grandma. My grandpa was very strict with him, however, he had become a problematic child after my grandpa passed away. That time he was 12/13 years old. Everyone in the family blamed my grandma for over pampering him. Well, what do you think? A grandma who lost her husband and a kid without parents by his side, both of them depended on each other.

One day, we heard another news about his mother. His mother was diagnosed with final stage breast cancer. He lost his mom. I didn't know how he went through such difficult times. He life was never been good. And in the end, leukemia had become his fate, at age 27.

I still do not know what to say, and I couldn't even see his last face. I couldn't accept the fact that he just disappeared from my life like that. *SIGH ....
