On the day he took the operation, I met Xing Lang’s mother who had been anxious about him. She gave me 2 pomegranates and expressed her thankfulness. She said the pomegranates were planted by themselves and she insisted I would take them. I took one of them and said thank you to her. She said it was she who should say thank you to us. She had not expected the operation would be done so fast. Her son would be saved. The mother could not help weeping which I thought must be happy tears.
Xing Lang’s brother was busy to do paper work for him on the day he was discharged from hospital. His mother helped to pack things. She asked Xing Lang to keep warm. Xing Lang became more relaxing and spoke more than the first time I met him. He said words of thanks to us. His mother said he has outgoing personality and many curious ideas, but he only told the family members. He may feel inferiority. I accompanied them to the gate of the hospital. They kept saying thank you to me. They said goodbye to me with sincere smiles. Though they are poor and Xing Lang had congenital heart disease, his family care him, which is the most valuable.
All the best to Xing Lang! We hope he will be better though he would not go to school. Every trade had its master. We hope he would find something he will be good at.
