Having been born in a family who is a firm believer of tradition and has great respect to our ancenstors, we were brought up drinking tea of root crops and leaves whenever we are sick - fever, chickenpox, measles, dengue, stomach ache, hyperacidity, headache among others. Trust me, the tea tasted and smelled horrible. I used to drink them pinching my nose so I can't smell and then drown the after taste with lots and lots of water.

Yesterday I attended the thanksgiving dinner for Maven's complete healing. I hugged Hannah and was immediately in tears. I am very happy. A month after his surgery, his oxygen saturation is now 99% from the meager 68%. What great news that is!
