Foster son was home for a week. The week went by so quickly.
Before you knew it, he was due to fly off. He said his "Good bye be a good girl" and then got in the car to head for the airport.
I came home and saw this.

It was time to build up for the national competition. Training began to intensify. Suddenly she has an injury. She seeks relief and tries to continue.
She isn't the only one on the team having injuries. Oh dear!
Thankfully, a physiotherapist comes along and helps them out.
She has a special strapping given to her. The physiotherapist teaches her how to put it on and how to rest and yet strengthen her leg.
Glad that they pressed on with guidance!

Amazing. I put one word out and the whole group rallies round. My former classmates did a relay specially for my Arrow and I. The only known "treatment" for dengue.
One collected papaya leaves. From her neighbour no less. Stripped the tree bare apparently.
Then it was specially delivered to another friend who put the leaves in a special wash.
Then the passing on continues. It goes to yet another friend who then passes it to one more friend before it gets to me.
And all within a few hours.
So that Arrow #1 can have this concoction which is supposed to help get the blood platelet levels up.
Thankful. So thankful for this camaraderie...

It wasn't that long ago that I had made a trip across the South China Sea. I wasn't expecting to make another so soon.
But conversations via text messages stirred something within me. I felt my first Arrow needed me and so I caught a flight.
I arrived just in time to hear the results of his blood tests. He had dengue fever and was about to be admitted. Thankfully, the results were borderline high enough to be allowed to go home.
So I travel back with him to nurse him.
This was such what I envisaged - that he would not be admitted but that I would nurse him at his apartment. Somehow it felt the right thing to do.
And so it was. The story continues....
