this rant is written out of anger, so don't take me seriously because these careless words may not describe the actual situation.
some parents DON'T love their children because they let the kids climb on parked motorcycles. so when the motorbike toppled over, it's fortunate that only the hand is badly hurt while we've actually seen worse injuries before.
some parents MAY love their children because when the kids are hurt, they sent them to private hospitals for immediate attention. maybe it's out of guilt, or maybe they have accident insurance.
some parents DON'T love their children because half an hour before the start of surgery, they give them a big glass of water because the kids complain of thirst. taking food or drink just before a general anaesthetic constitute a risk to the patient because the stomach contents can come back out into the mouth & then track into the lungs, causing a severe chemical reaction.
some parents DON'T love their children because, instead of accompanying the kids to the operating theatre for emergency surgery, they go out for a meal instead, leaving the kids with equally young siblings in hospital. seriously, how can the parents even swallow food at a time like this?
anyway, against the rule of Murphy's Law, everything turned out well. the surgery was a success & nothing went into the patient's lungs.
as an after-thought, perhaps this mother DOES love her 4-year-old daughter. it's just that i've imposed my own values on her. i should give myself a slap on the wrist.
like i said, this is just a rant. an angry one.
