Can you online now? I think I almost die now

It was Thursday morning. I knew a friend just had a heart operation the night before. I did not know if she was awake so I sms-ed her to ask how she was doing. She replied with, “Can you online now? I think I almost die now”.

Panic stricken, I replied her saying I could not as I was on the way to the clinic with Ethan and Darling. Thinking back, see how stupid I was? People there telling me she was dying and all I did was to sms her back! Couldn’t I just called??!!
Cut long story short, she told me about some ‘not so beautiful’ incidents happening to her blog and then there I was, right in front of the clinic. I kept my phone and went inside.
Once out of the clinic, I sms-ed her back only to be told by her sister that she was rushed into the ER due to breathing difficulty. I checked my phone and saw that she actually sms-ed me; informing me that she had difficulty breathing. I felt like an ass! 
Though I don’t know how to pray, I kept on praying that she will regain consciousness. Her sister and I exchanged uncountable sms-es keeping me updated; yet she was still unconscious. In the evening, she opened her eyes but was in such pain that the Doctor gave her a jab and she went back to slumber land.  Later around 7pm, she finally regained consciousness and I actually cried; tears of joy and relieve. 
Caroline, don’t you ever scare us again like that!

Blogging should be fun and never life-threatening. People out there has got to learn that nobody’s perfect and if you don’t like it, don’t read that blog. Just don’t go around  hiding under some anonymity giving out nasty comments for you never know, your actions could actually cost somebody’s life out there.
Peace to all and since we are at this topic, if I have ever offended any of my readers, sincerely “I’m sorry”. Let’s make love, not war. -Hugs-

    What? Heart operation? Oh dear…the poor girl. She did hint that she has some health problems…but I never expected it to be so serious. Aiyor…it must be all because of that silly contest she joined – shouldn't have taken it so seriously. Hope she's getting better – do send her my get-well wishes, may God be with her through these troubled times.
