Depressing day 颓丧的一天

Chinese throughout the world celebrates Autumn Festival (Winter solstice) today.

And it is a depressing day for me.

I went to visit my friend at the nursing home en route to see a customer in KL. My friend cried again...he looked shriveled and weak, lying on bed resting......

"They assaulted me...pulled my mouth, forced me to eat...almost choked me...." . "They" means the staff.

"They scolded me using vulgar words.... I am an old man, how can they treated me like this.."

"My children would not believe what I said because they didn't see what have I been through..."

I can dismiss his complaint as making up story or simply his senility... But I believed him.

Today I met him in his room. He was resting.

He shares a small room with 2 others. One is on wheelchair, one is mobile. I heard the charges is about RM1000 per month.

The mobile one passes motions in the room on a bucket chair (He refuses to go to the toilet). Two roommates have to put up with the stench daily.... covering their noses with towels... disgusting...!

My friend is withering if not dying in the nursing home.

In the evening, I took my 2 godsons and their sisters to McDonald's for burgers and fries. The day ended in a more positive note...seeing children enjoying themselves.

今天是冬至,全世界的华人的一个重要节日。

对我来说,是令人颓丧的一天。

早上去见一个顾客时,顺路去老人疗养院去探访我的朋友。他正在房间休息,见到了我,还是流泪,人也显得较弱及老态显露。

“他们打我,拉我的嘴巴,强迫我吃东西,我的假牙飞脱,差点窒息。。。。” 。这里的“他们”,就是疗养院的员工。

“他们用臭话来骂我。。我这一把年纪,还这样的对待我。。。。”。

“我告诉我的孩子,他们不会相信。当然他们没有见到我所受的折磨。。”。

我可以说他说捏造故事,或者有些老人痴呆的无中生有。。。但我相信他说的是真话。

今天我进入他的房间和他谈谈。他躺在床上休息。

他和另两位老者共用一间小房间。一位需藉轮椅来移动,另一位则可自己行动。听说这里的月费是大约马币一千元。

那位可自己行动的不愿意到厕所拉便,所以其他两位每天都要面对难闻的臭味,只好掩鼻。。。。呕心极了。。。。

我的朋友在这疗养院里虽不致说是等死,但也可以说是在让岁月折腾及蹉跎。。。

在傍晚,我带两位代子及他们的姐姐,到麦当劳吃汉堡包及薯条。见到他们在高兴的吃,这一天也至少相当圆满的结束了。。。

My 2 godsons - Thomas & John with sisters
两位代子 - 龙登城,龙登岸及姐姐

无言问仓天!!我们能帮到他吗????那些男女
外劳态度真坏。有人探访时都没懂收口,无亲人时,老人猫狗不如。。。有儿有女,老人真命苦。
想到他流泪。。。他要回家。。。心好重好重。
只有你能帮他了!!!

解铃还须系铃人,谁把他放在哪,谁才能够救赎他。。。耶稣也没办法,因为这不是耶稣做的!!!这叫做『爱莫能助』。
