“It happened two years ago, my dad was on his way to work. And in the afternoon, my mom got a call from an unknown number she said was from the hospital. They said my Dad was in the emergency room. We rushed to the hospital and after we arrived at the hospital they told us my Dad needed heart valve surgery. Took him 2-3 weeks for recovery. After the surgery, we were more careful with his condition, with his diet and we forbid him from heavy exercise. Since he has to take his medication regularly, my sister and I put his 10 pills in one tube and we help him to fill it for two or three months. We were shocked at first, but we knew we had to support him to get through it.”
