On June 18th, we saw Yu Mei get discharged from the ICU. We’re so happy for her! Here’s the update from our staff Guan who was with her:
As soon as Yu Mei opened her eyes, she saw her father and stretched out her hand to him. Yu Mei’s father ran over to get closer to her, and she put her hand on his face. At that moment, I couldn’t help but cry. Yu Mei and her father had been through an 8-day ordeal of life and death.
Yu Mei changed from a purple child into a white princess. Through it all, she and her father had such an understanding between them. Her dad was always busy running around to take care of her, even though it’s not easy for him to take care of her by himself.
I helped cut Yu Mei’s fingernails, which is the only thing I could do to help her. Yu Mei pointed at my face, indicating she recognized me. I let her see her hand compared to mine. Now she’s a lot whiter than I am. She’s so happy!
