The monotony of the afternoon was shattered by squeals of delight from my grandnephew. Yes! I am a granduncle already ? has been one to several grandnephews and grandnieces for many years now. Eight-month old Joel is Elaine?s second child. Elaine is Peter?s daughter. Elaine is at the hospital looking after Janelle, Joel?s elder sister, who was afflicted with a persistent fever that refused to go away.
Peter and wife went to visit Janelle and dropped Little Joel here for the maid to look after as babies are not allowed into the wards. I got breathless just watching this little thing waltzing all over my apartment in his walker. When I was on the phone with Wuan, he gawked at me and yelped again and again, wanting to talk into the phone too. Thankfully he was here for a couple of hours only. He would have totally exhausted me had he stayed any longer.
