I am now at the prime of my life and have been married for the past 25 years. Sickly at times, but wants to see the elixir vita, so that I will be able to see my grandchildren from my two boys.

My Niece and Nephews who attended the wedding reception. Christine and Kevin, on the right , are brothers and sisters. Noel is their first cousin from Sacramento, California.
My charlies angels. My wife in the middle with pinkish blouse and the rest are all sisters and sister in laws.
My nephew Drichmon, leading the the line dance on the dance floor.
My wife trying to support me because I am not holding my cain with me and standing infront of the camera for a long time. I am still hurting from my surgery last 01 July'08.
My wife with her nephew Noel who is always present to any family gatherings, even if he needs to fly from Sacramento, California where he works as a Physical Therapy in their family business enterprise.
Last Saturday 28th of July, I ventured for the first time outside the house using my cain. I have to attend my wife's niece wedding that we have already promised that we will be attending. We cannot absent ourselves because my two sons cannot attend it. They have their own occasion to attend.
I did not informed my nurse and physical therapy that I will be attending, but I think the physical therapist can sense that I will be attending the party. She told me that in case I will be attending the party, I have to bring my walker and cain with me, and I need to stand up from where I sit every one hour so that the muscle on the left hip where I had the surgery will not be stiff. So off I went to attend the party.
I was so jealous because everybody is dancing while I just sit and watch all of them having a good time and some are already wasted and drunk because there was an open bar. There were lots of line dancing and other funky music and dancing of the younger ones, that I really cannot relate into. There lots of ball room dancing that I really wanted to involve myself but I am imprisoned temporarily with this walker and cain. I stood up at the dance floor holding my cain and just watch people dance. My wife nearly had a heart attack because she was worried I might start dancing. She escorted me back to our dinner table.
And so Auntie Patti Koh, I could have dance all night if I don't have these contraptions with me. Maybe next time, when all is well and my body is well.
