He can only compare gestures and reactions, wave his hands, chemotherapy makes his body loose, and he has to speak hard. I didnt go to the hospital to see a doctor. Im afraid Im too emotional and dont want to disturb him. Besides, I cant go to the hospital casually. I have to get his permission. At present, DAGO has suspended his work and hopes to get well first. His wife and a couple of children are also taking care of him in Hong Kong.
