Just a brief post to say: “Hi, am still here. Don’t go away.”

Somewhat upset today. It’s all the kind of feeling you get when you visit someone at hospital. My niece’s husband in his 40’s has been seriously injured. A loosely tackled electric pole fell straight on his belly during fixing. He was operated yesterday and it revealed laceration of the intestines. Doctors say it’s very serious.

My elder son was very distressed after this visit. He didn’t utter a word on our way back home for nearly half an hour. Anyway, that’s life. You never know what may happen the second after.
