Back in Singapore

I’ve been away from Singapore for one whole week. My father was in the ICU from Saturday evening until Thursday morning. He had to undergo an operation to address bilial blockage. According to my brother, it’s palliative (a new word I learned) so there’s still a lot of uncertainty on how his condition will go from there. BeforeĀ we left, he was getting stronger and was already talking. Hopefully his condition gets better and better so he’ll be up and about when we come home again for Christmas. I missed them all a lot.
