My Appreciation-- Shirley's 268th Friendly Greeting, August 22, 2010

How are you? Have you had a good weekend?

When you receive this letter, I have been in the hospital for 6 days and now I am writing to you while I am having my intravenous injection on my sick bed.

Since my health condition does not support a biopsy yet, so, instead of doing it according to the original plan to exclude the cancer last Tuesday, the two directors in two different departments decided me to be in the hospital to have some more check on my bones and eyes at the first.

After the 6 days' checks by CT, MRI, MRA, Photos, X-ray, Blood and many the other checks, includes some consultations with the other departments, the doctors have basically found the reasons why all of my bones are aching and why my eyes cannot see clear.

However, because the biopsy has not been done yet, so, the doctors cannot use the best way to treat me at this time -- they are worrying that any medicine would accelerate a tumor to grow up.

Therefore, after making the last checks and get the final diagnoses on my bones and eyes, I will go back home to wait for my health to meet the condition to have the biopsy. And then, after excluding the cancer, I will go back in the hospital to resolve the problem of bones and eyes...

So, this is just a short letter to you to say Hello and let you see my last new painting that I created after I escaped out of the hospital Sunday night.

With this letter, I would also like to appreciate you and all of the friends who have written to me, who are caring for me, supporting me and helping me here in China and in the other sides of the Ocean.

-- My boss Mr. Song Z. for he has arranged the human resource department to look after me and he has also connected some director in the hospital for me in person.
-- My American art mentor Dr. Booth B. for he has called me from USA and he has invited me to go to the US to see doctors there.
-- My colleagues in the technology departments for they have found and fixed some special soft wares for me to help me to write by speaking.
-- My former colleagues Mrs. Xiaoling Z and Ms. Zongli L for their good help before I lived in the hospital.
-- My music professor Mr. Weili M. for he has come to my place to offer his lesson for me since he knew that I am not convenient to drive.
-- My doctors and nurses in the in-patient admission, especially Doctor Yu Liu & Doctor Wang, for their responsible work for me...

I am going to do my best to fight with the sickness and I will never give up no matter what will happen to me. As long as I can, I will keep learning art of painting, music, language and management, try to create something most beautiful with a positive, optimistic and active life attitude and many smiles... :- )

How about you? Do you have anything special in your life this week?

I am just a learner on art of painting, music and English, to work on the web site in my free time. I would really like to do a few things with what I have learned to make this little web site to be an Electronic Bridge of Culture Exchange, Chinese Language Learning & Friendship making. To help the others while to improve myself.

I would like to appreciate your understanding, directions, supports and hope to get your friendly direction and help.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, you are welcome to write to or, or to publish your opinions in the forum.
