On the Neck Swelling


Friend: Auntie, your neck lump is it growing bigger?

Grandma: No no... This neck lump is nothing one. Long time already. No problem. Today come here not because of neck lump.

Friend: Okay Okay... Can you try to swallow for me?


Grandma: No no... This lump is nothing. Not goitre, goitre the hand will tremor one. This one I don't have. I don't have goitre...


Friend: Okay okay... I just want to see... Can you try to swallow your saliva for me?


Grandma: No no... Today I come because my kidney problem. This neck is nothing one. No problem. No problem.


Friend: Okay...

It is tough to handle elderly patients. I have to bring both my old parents for monthly check-ups and I salute the doctors' patience!
