2 Jul 2014 – Hello July 2014
Sun: T1 to bid farewell and safe journeys to the HCC group. Rest of the day at Mt E hospital with David where 4th aunt has been admitted. She is 99 and has recently suffered from some infections.
Mon: all day at Mt E. Lunched with Jo, David, Daisy and John at Paragon Soup Restaurant*** with jazz entertainment in the lobby. 4th aunt is not with it but quite amazing that she can talk non-stop for a day or 2 about what food to buy and make. Then she will sleep non stop for another day or 2. Was told by the doctor that this is what dementia is.
When I was in the hospital they gave me apple juice every morning, even after I told them I didn’t like it. I had to get even. One morning, I poured the apple juice into the specimen tube. The nurse held it up and said, ‘It’s a little cloudy.’ I took the tube from her and said, ‘Let me run it through again,’ and drank it. The nurse fainted – Alan King
Dinner at Tangs basement and then proceeded on to Chinatown to meet with Sue for a ride. The new Chinatown Food Street/Smith Street looks like a nice place to try, but has to be another time. Newly constructed high-ceiling glass canopy shelter and internal spot cooling system makes it more inviting.
Tue: at Mt E again, this time with my laptop to help David to get online to retrieve his work mail. Dinner at Takashimaya Food Village. Tasted the beef noodle soup at the Vietnamese cuisine and nothing much to write home about!
Following the news about the march in HKG and the crowds are amazing in spite of the rains. You will certainly NOT find me there! Pix downloaded from CNN
