icejohn2: (fun)
The summer is finally here! It has reached 90'F (30'C) today, heat wave! There was a small air show, "Wings Over Waukesha", in a local small city, Waukesha, Wisconsin. There were about 10 to 15 small airplanes, including some WWI and WWII airplanes such as Beech T34A, North American T28, P51, T6, Lockheed T33, etc. Of course, the main one was the B17. There were also some army ground jeep and hummer with machine guns for everybody to look at. After being in several big airshows and having seen SR-71, F14, F-15, F-16 and F-22, Thunderbirds and Blue Angels before, this was quite a small and a little bit boring airshow. But there were tons of people there and almost nowhere to park. However, for a free event, it was actually fun and I think lots of kids did enjoy the show with their fathers in the Father's Day. Hope that you all had a great Father's Day as well!

The typhoon Sinlaku has turned into a 200 mph level 4 typhoon and will impact Taipei tonight and the following 3 days. It was supposed to be Moon festival on this coming Sunday but now I think all the celebrations, picnics and outdoor concerts will all have to be cancelled for local people here. I will just stay home with my parents and watch TV I think. The 60% high humidty and the 90'F (34'F) weather really drives me crazy. Even the smallest movement will cause me sweat a lot.

My sister and I accompanied my mom to my mom's doctor appointment yesterday so the doctor could do a more detailed check and took more tissue samples from the possible cencer infected area. The result would take almost a week to come out but my sister has used her connections so that the result
will be available sooner. We will plan to go back to review the result with the doc to decide how soon the surgery can be performed to remove the infected area. Hope that they can perform the procedure before my planned flight back to US schedule.

I have been home for several days and currently try to deal with an unexpected family emergency. My mom went through a routine health check last week and got a notice one day before I got home that she has very early stage of the cervical cancer. My sister and I are trying our best to get her into the hospital as soon as possible. So far, we are lucky to get the early appointment with one of the best cervical cancer doctor in the country on this coming Thursday to do more detailed check and maybe the surgery to remove the whole womb next week. I am just happy that the condition got found so early and I come home to visit at the right time so I can take care of her.
