I know it has been a long time since I updated and the reason for that is Jiao Jiao and I had a busy Chinese New Year holiday that has overflown into our first week back in Beijing.
The first night, we went to her "big" uncles house, meaning oldest uncle, and had dinner and chatted. It was really a great time actually. Of course, the food gave me a bit of an urgent feeling and I also wanted to get home to watch the fireworks. (Movie soon to come)
We then proceeded to travel to Haerbin where we enjoyed the ice festival (movie and post to come) and then we went to Ya Bu Li, the biggest and most famous ski area in China (movies and posts to come). We also visited the Japanese atrocities museum in Haerbin (movie and posts to come) and finally got back home on Saturday.
The overflowing issues from that trip came to a head yesterday. Jiao Jiao fell on the second or third run of the day skiing. It was a serious fall for her as she is not a well experienced skiier. She has injured a ligament in her leg and yesterday she went to the doctor to get it checked out. She first started at Wang Jing hostpital. The first doctor twisted her leg all around, causing her great pain, and then said she should have surgery. So, she went to a second doctor at the hospital who asked her to remove her pants, both legs were absolutely necessary. Then she needed to take off her shirt. With one leg out of her pants she was then asked if she wanted a cast, as though she were a doctor.
She ended up calling me crying at 12:00 and then she went to her uncle's hospital, which is a really great hospital. Ji Shui Tan Yi Yuan, the extension of Bei Da University's Medical School. Since she has a relation with a very good reputation, she was given prompt service. They gave her a high tech brace and good instructions.
She will need to war that brace for about 1 month. We had just recently got her tickets to Hong Kong for the weekend of the 9th, so we are still going to do it, but it might not be the same. Any suggestions Andy? Hopefully she will feel well enough to put a smaller brace on for a couple days in HK so she can enjoy it more.
Ton answer another question, "What is with the Ad's?" which I think some people might be asking. Well, I decided I wanted to give it a try to see how they worked and if they made any money. Guess what, we have made almost 1 whole dollar. HAHA. It turns out that we get about 10 cents a click.
I haven't said anything like this in a long time, but I really appreciate all the people that read this blog when they read it. I especially appreciate those of you who consistently post comments, that lets me know what you think and who you are. I guess I might get more comments if I were to reopen the comments on the post about the passing of Shawn, but I do not want to moderate the people that might post bad things.
Have a good day and keep on the lookout for our stuff to come!
