  Acacia is starting to smile, not only in the sleep as the above picture, but she also smiles at us when we talk to her. Her smile is really cute, the kind that melts my heart. Her baby acne is still there, sometimes better, sometimes worse, but hopefully they will clear up soon so we get our pretty princess back. Acacia has outgrown her 0-3 month clothes, now she wears 3-6 month onesies. I wonder how much she weighs now.. she looks so big already!

Today both Timothy and Jacob took lunch to school, in their lunch bags they had a cheese/ham sandwitch, some baby carrots, and juices. Jacob also brought a banana and Timothy brought some cookies. Both boys finished their foods and I was pretty surprised but happy. Since Timothy has to bring lunch 2 days a week, I will probably start letting Jacob bring lunch to school on these same days so he gets to eat some home foods.

Daddy REALLY wants his boys to start learning piano so last Saturday we started our piano lessons. I don't want to push them at all and hopefully they will enjoy their piano learning experience from mommy. Each time I teach them we are saving money!! That's pretty good!!


Sometimes I let Acacia sleep on her tummy, so she sleeps deeper and that also helps her gas problem. Last night was the 1st night for a while she slept through(not even awake when she nursed) and didn't cry. We got some much needed rest and I surely hope the trend continues...

Now the weather is a little more tolerable. Can't wait for fall to start... this weekend is labor day long weekend, and maybe we can go out and have some fun if it's good weather.
Daddy put the ceiling fan in the study so it's not so hot in here typing away... what a handy daddy we have!!

We've got lots of cute pictures of Timothy holding Acacia. They are all so precious. Acacia is so lucky to have 2 big brothers that love her to pieces.

 Timothy waited and waited.. and finally today was his turn to go to school. I took him and Acacia to visit his new teacher, Ms. Phyllis and his new classroom.. the classroom is a lot bigger than his old one, and there are even pets inside (2 gerbles and a fish tank). Timothy immediately started playing with the stuff on the table and didn't even have time to say goodbye to us. I was a little sad to not have Timothy with me during the morning but he seemed to enjoy school so much. I then took Acacia to Target to return some stuff and it started raining cats and dogs... so we had to stay inside shopping for a while She did really well, except pooping once and having to nurse once. I bought some ham and a lettuce so Timothy can have sandwitch at school tomorrow for lunch.

Yesterday was the 1st time Acacia went to the Lord's day meeting. Everyone was excited to see her and I was so happy to go to the meeting hall after a one long month!! I didn't get to sit in  the meeting because Acacia was so busy feeding, pooping and crying so I stayed in the nursery for the whole time, but at least I got to see the saints!

Last night after dinner daddy me and the boys went for a walk(Jacob rode his scooter). It had just rained so it wasn't as hot... but I wore the wrong kind of shoes(sandles) so I couldn't walk as fast as them. Timothy kept calling me "mommy, are you a fat pig? Slow poke?" and daddy was laughing ,.. and I wasn't really mad but a little upset that even Timothy feels mommy is fat... I am determined to lose all these baby fat somehow...  :)

I am going to take a nap now Acacia is finally sleeping... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

 Today we went to have our fingerprints done for the process of applying USA citizenship. We took Timothy and Acacia because I was afraid Acacia would be hungry at home with my mom. It was a poor-looking office, and full of people in line. But we really didin't have to wait a long time, the whole process took about 1 hour. But that 1 hour felt like a year because Acacia was fussy, hungry and had a poopy diaper. Thankfully the staff there weren't mad at us. The computer captured all 10 fingerprints(the whole area), our fingers were rolled from left to right. I think they are doing this to try to avoid another event like 911. Now we are just waiting to be interviewed, it should take only a few months. We were given a booklet to study the "facts" about US history and government.

Last night daddy and I had some arguments, and we both ended up very upset. I wonder if I have those 'post-partum' depression because a lot of times I feel upset for no obvious reasons. I need to practice to call on the Lord often so my mind can be set on the spirit, not on other things.

Acacia's baby acne is getting a little better, hopefully they will all clear up soon so we have a beautiful baby again. I surely miss her smooth skin on the face.

This morning daddy took the boys to buy Krysti Kream donuts and came back with a dozen!! Too sweet for me. But I guess once in a while is ok. We will go to daddy's coworker's house to play in a little bit. They also have 3 kids, exactly like ours, 2 boys and a baby girl. Very similar to our family, their boys are both 1 month younger than ours, and this time they got their baby girl a few months before us. Too bad we don't live very closely otherwise we can play together often. They gave us a used swing and stroller.

 真棒ㄝ!!

Acacia is 1 month old today!! What a BIG step!!

From yesterday, Acacia's gas problem stopped and she gradually turned back to a super baby again. And last night, we didn't have to get up and rock her, she slept very well, I had to "remind" her to eat actually!

This morning while my mom watched her, I took Timothy to my 1st Yoga class for a long time. I really enjoyed it, my legs and arms were shaking because I've been out of shape for a while... Today is the 1st day of Acacia being 1 month old, a very meaningful day for me to start yoga, and tring to get back to a better shape... in mind, body and spirit. Timothy was excited to go to Lifetimefitness as well. I felt great holding his little hands while we walked into the building, it will be very rare that I could be alone with him now we have 3 kids. He will still be my baby boy forever though...

I went and had a haircut on Tuesday morning, now my head is lighter I feel much better. Plus Acacia started to grab my long hair so a haircut was a must.

As the doctor recommanded. I've been trying to let Acacia practice tummy time. Acacia doesn't like it at all, she cries until you turn her over to her back. Daddy had found that when Acacia has hiccups or gas problem, lay her on her tummy usually works, but it means we have to hear her cry for a few minutes...

Tomorrow we will go and have our fingerprints. we will drop grandma, Timothy and Acacia off at the Galleria mall so they can play for a while then we will all meet there and maybe I will get to have another piece of La Madelines's Tirimasu ALL BY MYSELF !!

I will now start to cook the meals, since I know their tastes better, and to give my mom some rest. She has really helped me a lot during the last month and I appreciate having her here with us.

I can't wait for all the fun to begin, now we can "officially" take Acacia out to play... and when the weather gets cooler, we can go to the zoo, the Dallas Aboritum, ..... FUN FUN FUN!!

 這2天妹妹一直不停的哭鬧,搞的我們都累壞了,我開始懷疑,是不是妹妹的真面目露出來ㄌ,原來之前的乖巧都是偽裝,或是因為我坐月子吃了幾箱米酒,把她一直灌的醉醺醺。。

It all started on Sunday morning, Acacia began to cry without any reason, but it wasn't so bad until late afternoon, when rocking and holding and feeding and everything didn't work... we began to realize maybe it's gas that's making her uncomfortable. so I ran to Kroger to buy some gas relieve drop and it seemed to work a little bit, but not for too long. Yesterday whole day she was in a very bad mood, crying all the time and only slept for a very few hours during the day. Grandma held her and rocked her and sang songs to console her for hours, I was also as tired as a dog trying to calm her down. When daddy came home, she was quiet for a while... so daddy didn't really believe how fussy she was... until midnight, 2am to be exact, when she started the crying business again. Daddy was very patient with her, he tried to rock her for a long time... until we finally were able to go back to sleep again, it was already 5am, I watched the clock. This morning we all over slept, of course, lacking sleep. Uncle Tom was already at the door but nobody was up yet so Jacob went to school late...

So this angel of ours for the past 2 days has turned into a fussy crying little girl that I alsmot felt like I wanted to return her to the store... for a refund... But Acacia proves me wrong. This morning she has gradually turned back to a better baby, I am still keeping my fingers crossed but she hasn't cried like yesterday at all... and it's already pass the midday..12:22pm... This morning we actually took her to do some grocery shopping, and she was wide awake the whole time, enjoying her carseat ride. And now she is taking a nap(finally).

Last night I told her daddy, oh no, it must be the "colic" that started... but her daddy was pretty optimistic, he didn't think Acacia has colic. Maybe it's the honeydew I've been eating.. I am going to cut out all milk and wheat for now.. and see if it helps. After all, Acacia is not a bad baby!!


On Sunday 淑慧 & baby came to visit us... I was very happy to see them!! It's my 1st time to meet a friend that we got to know each other on the internet(BBH).. it was a neat experience! What a good baby 卉昕 is, she didn't cry, she was all smiles... and she certainly is a cute baby girl!!!
淑慧 brought 麻油雞 for me and baby clothes for Acacia, what a nice mommy!! We chatted for a while and had a good time.

I hope we will have lots of chances to get together in the next year before she moves back to Taiwan!! Thank you
淑慧!!  (p,s, not a very good picture, can't see our babies well at all )


Acacia has a whole face and neck of baby acne... so red and so ugly... I was hoping she wouldn't have them but I guess all my kids had them so I can't expect otherwise. These baby acne probably won't clear up until a few weeks later... I missed her super soft baby skin so much. I researched and it said it's very normal for babies to have baby acne at this age (3-4 weeks old) because the hormone that I passed to her is now showing up through her oil glands on the face... and once baby got rid of the hormone her skin will return back to normal.


Yesterday afternoon after I picked up Jacob from bus I took J & T swimming. It was the very 1st time since I had Acacia. We didn't go for a long time, just about 30 minutes because I was afraid Acacia would get hungry, but the boys had a good time. I guess they missed the water fun. Sitting under the shade I could totally remember the very last time I was sitting at the exact same place... with Acacia in my tummy kicking away.. I remember the feeling well and I actually miss that moment... being pregnant and taking the boys swimming. Next year Acacia will be able to join us swimming... and it should be a lot of fun!!

 It has certainly been a long week for all of us since Daddy went back to work and Jacob started school. With only me and Timothy and Acacia at home, I am actually more tired. Timothy asked me about 20 times a day "What should I do? I am so bored". I have to come up with ideas for him to be occupied with, and he really missed his big brother to play with him. This week for some reason Acacia has been a little fussier than before, when she was awake, she wants to be held the whole time, she doesn't like to be left in the bassinet or the stroller. And it's been hard for her to fall asleep during the daytime. I guess I can't really complain because she sleeps so well at night.

Last night was the 1st night Acacia didn't poop. I was very amazed. It's much easier just changing her pee diapers 2-3 times during the night. And I have to confess I am going back to disposible diapers. Cloth diapering is just so hard, it's so hot on Acacia and all the washing and drying is adding up.. taking so much more time and energy. I think I will wait a little while when the weather is cooler, maye I will like it better then. Right now the weather is still like 106 F degrees outside and even in the air-conditioned house it's still warm.

Sometimes I use the baby sling I bought from Erin(a mom I got to know through BBS), and Acacia really likes it, usually within 1 minute I put her in, she falls asleep. But it gets warm wearing Acacia so I can't do it for too long a time. Once again, maybe when the weather is cooler....

Acacia is growing bigger and bigger each day. I can see it in front of my eyes. I already feel 捨不得 watching her growing up. No matter how much I try to treasure each moment, time still flies by like a rocket. I wish I could control when I want to pause the time machine. She has already outgrown some 0-3 month onesies. In this picture below Acacia looks exactly like me when I was a little baby.  But most people still say she looks like her daddy. I guess we will find out  in a few months... either way, I will be happy!  She is the fruit of our love.

On one hand I can't wait for Timothy to start school, on the other hand, I am going to miss him very much, just like how I miss my Jacob during the day this week. I am such a wimp... I just love and adore my boys. Yesterday me and Timothy had a conversation, he said "I can't wait to buy a big house so I can live in there by myself". I said "don't you want to live with me and daddy forever? "  He said "no". I said, "then can I go live with you? " He said, "no, you can live in your own house"... by this time I was heartbroken. Then I asked if I can go over once in a while to live with him, he thought about it for a while and finally said "ok!"  I guess one day my kids will all leave the house and we will be empty-nested. And I can't imagine that day coming. I wish I could take care of them for a very long time and they will be this little and totally dependent on me. I know I have some big lessons to learn to let go. One day my kids will be full grown birds that fly away to build their own nests.

I've been using our new Sony T9 camera to take pictures. It works very well and I am so happy to have a digital camera again.

 Now Jacob is in school, Timothy keeps saying "it's boring"... I know, the house is so quiet without Jacob. I try to find things for Timothy to do, like coloring. drawing, listening to stories, doing homeworks, watching a little TV, playing some computer... but he is still bored. I can't imagine people with 1 child, how they entertain their only child. I am surely glad my boys have each other as companions.

These 2 days it's been hard for Acacia to fall asleep and stay asleep during the day. I am not sure why.. maybe it's because I am trying cloth diapers, and the pocket diapers I bought look so hot for this summer time. I am not sure if I like it too much. I will try a few more days then if I still don't fall in love with CD I will sell them all and just go with disposible diapers.  During the night Acacia still sleeps very well, only making noises when she needs to nurse or have her diaper changed. This is great for me, I am not sleep-deprived at all, I don't even need any naps during the day.

Daddy bought a new digital camera (sony T9) which is wonderful. He ordered it yesterday and I can't wait to receive in the mail so we can start taking pictures. My mom's digital camera which we were borrowing had some problem so we sent it in for repair, and ours stopped working last month for some reason. I think for a digital camera it has about 2 year life span in our household. because we don't stop our kids using the camera, we actually encourage them taking pictures because they are good at it and it's neat to see things through their angles.

I am 9 days away from finishing "sit month". I am starting to eat some regular foods(just less or no salt), and it's ok with me. I am actually a little tired of the meats I've been eating. I am also starting to drink more water. It's impossible to not drink water in this hot Texas weather!!

This morning Timothy's teacher, Miss Phyllis, came to visit him. It was at 11am and he was so excited the whole morning and kept asking why she wasn't here yet. Miss Phyllis read him a story " the hungry caterpillar" and asked Timothy to draw 2 pages, and took 2 pictures of him and we chatted a little. T can't wait to start school.. and it's still almost 2 weeks away... I think very soon I will start taking him out, maybe to the library or something so he doesn't feel so bored at home.

I am pumping a lot less now. Usually only 2-3 times a day.. and for a few minutes each time, only to relieve engorgement since Acacia still only feeds on 1 side each time. It's amazing this time around I didn't get any bleeding, cracking breastfeeding. Overall having my 3rd child has been a lot easier than my previous experiences, almost in every way.

I can't wait to start yoga again and getting back to some shape. I still have this flappy tummy and all these extra pounds to lose. Maybe next week I will start going.. and T can have some fun in the child center, but I want to leave Acacia home with my mom so timing will be the key..  we will see. Acacia still hasn't had any bottles and she absolutely doesn't want to take the pacifier... she only loves mommy !!

Jacob said his new teacher "很兇", because one girl in his class kept saying bad things and wouldn't follow instructions. And also they don't have rest time anymore because now they are older. I hope he has a good learning experience this year with this teacher, because last year he really enjoyed his teacher. Daddy said his new classroom is a little smaller and most of the kids in his class are not caucatians. Which is fine and good actually because he will be exposed to different kinds of people and learn to get along with different cultural backgrounded people.

Next Friday we are going in to get our "fingerprints" done for getting citizenship. We are amazed how quickly the process is moving and how lucky we are.

 Now Jacob is in school, Timothy keeps saying "it's boring"... I know, the house is so quiet without Jacob. I try to find things for Timothy to do, like coloring. drawing, listening to stories, doing homeworks, watching a little TV, playing some computer... but he is still bored. I can't imagine people with 1 child, how they entertain their only child. I am surely glad my boys have each other as companions.

These 2 days it's been hard for Acacia to fall asleep and stay asleep during the day. I am not sure why.. maybe it's because I am trying cloth diapers, and the pocket diapers I bought look so hot for this summer time. I am not sure if I like it too much. I will try a few more days then if I still don't fall in love with CD I will sell them all and just go with disposible diapers.  During the night Acacia still sleeps very well, only making noises when she needs to nurse or have her diaper changed. This is great for me, I am not sleep-deprived at all, I don't even need any naps during the day.

Daddy bought a new digital camera (sony T9) which is wonderful. He ordered it yesterday and I can't wait to receive in the mail so we can start taking pictures. My mom's digital camera which we were borrowing had some problem so we sent it in for repair, and ours stopped working last month for some reason. I think for a digital camera it has about 2 year life span in our household. because we don't stop our kids using the camera, we actually encourage them taking pictures because they are good at it and it's neat to see things through their angles.

I am 9 days away from finishing "sit month". I am starting to eat some regular foods(just less or no salt), and it's ok with me. I am actually a little tired of the meats I've been eating. I am also starting to drink more water. It's impossible to not drink water in this hot Texas weather!!

This morning Timothy's teacher, Miss Phyllis, came to visit him. It was at 11am and he was so excited the whole morning and kept asking why she wasn't here yet. Miss Phyllis read him a story " the hungry caterpillar" and asked Timothy to draw 2 pages, and took 2 pictures of him and we chatted a little. T can't wait to start school.. and it's still almost 2 weeks away... I think very soon I will start taking him out, maybe to the library or something so he doesn't feel so bored at home.

It has certainly been a very special summer for all of us. We've got a brand new member, Acacia, into our family. Tomorrow is the last day of Jacob's summer vacation and Daddy will also go back to work on Monday after 3 week leave. Timothy will have another week at home with me then he will start school too. I will miss them all very much, but I will have Acacia with me so I should still be very busy taking care of her.

I can't believe it's already been almost 3 weeks since I gave birth. I've almost all recovered and physically I feel very good. What I learnt from these 3 weeks with the boys is that I need to have more patience, especially now I have 3 kids to take care of, it's very easy for me to lose my patience and my temper comes out. Sometimes I caught myself too strict with the boys, I need to remind myself they are only small children and I need to give them space and time to learn and grow.

I tried cloth diapering Acacia today.. so far I am not too impressed with cloth diapers, mainly because they seem so bulky comparing to disposibles. I guess I will continue experimenting before I jump into a conclusion. I can always sell the pockect cloth diapers I bought and buy disposible ones... I just want to find out which one works better for Acacia so she won't have diaper rash.

My breastfeeding is starting to work well. For the 1st 2 weeks I leaked a lot of milk and my supply was way more than what Acacia needed so I had to pump a lot... so far I've had quite a lot of frozen breastmilk. This week I have been trying to taper down the times I pump and I only pump until I don't feel super-uncomfortable. My breasts are also learning to be "patient" and wait their turns !! It's amazing how our human body adjusts to the environment. I am surely glad I can still nourish and supply all Acacia's needs now she is out of my body. Dr. Cole said all breastmilk until she is 5 months then we will start adding some other foods. Acacia is also learning to nurse well. She a lot of times chokes because I have fast flow, and now she is more used to the way my milk comes down.  For the past few days I've been making "母奶冰棒". I froze breastmilk in little containers with honey, and Jacob likes it a lot. Timothy doesn't like it too much. But at least some of the breastmilk is being consumed. Maybe I will use all these frozen breastmilk when Acacia is ready to eat rice cereal and just mix it with whatever foods I will be making for her in a few months.

On Thursday daddy took Jacob and Timothy to MST for Jacob to meet his new teacher. I guess all his good friends will be in different classes this semester. I am sure Jacob will make some new good friends. On Monday he will also take some lunch money as well as the albuterol inhalor for his asthma in case he has wheezing after PE classes. I've faxed Dr. Cole some forms to fill out so she can fax back to the school nurse.

This time around I am able to get back to shape a lot faster. I think it's due to all the exercises I did during pregnancy(yoga, weight, trademills), as well as the "sit month" foods I am eating. My parents really wanted to make sure I have a good "sit month" this time because it's my last baby. My dad paid for all the herbs I bought, and my mom cooks all our meals. So far I've consumed about 2 dozens of Taiwan rice wine... I've asked my mom to cut down the amount of rice wine because I don't want to pass any alchohol to Acacia through breastmilk. Only 1 week left then I should be getting back to normal living and eating. My mom said she will still help me cooks some meals and even picking up the boys after school, which should be a BIG help. But I am also excited to be able to get back to normal schedule where the boys go to school and I am the main care-giver for them.

Acacia is really a super good baby! She sleeps all night, excepting nursing a few times and she even cuts down pooping during the night. During the day she would usually be awake a few times, each time from 1-3 hours, I think this is why she sleeps so well at night.

The other night this week she pooped at 4am and "on" the sheets after I took off her diaper... so daddy had to clean the sheets and change to new sheets.. a lot of work!! But after all the mess when we settled back down to sleep(well, Acacia slept through the whole event of course!!), Acacia smiled(at sleep) at Daddy and daddy felt it was worth all the work he did. Surely a daddy's little girl ! Having daddy wrapped around her finger!

Acacia is 2 weeks old. Yesterday morning we went into Dr. Cole's office for her 2 week checkup. She weighed 8 lbs 7 oz and has already grown 2 inches(22.5 inches). She is 95% on length and 75% on weight. Perfect! The nurse poked her foot to get blood test and overall she did very well. Dr. Cole said she is perfect in anyway. Her next appointment is 2 month checkup when she will get more shots and we will also talk about her getting a sonogram to check her kidneys since she has an ear tag near her left ear.

Timothy also had his 4 year old checkup, he passed eye exam and hearing exam. It's very cute to see him raise his hand when he heard the beeping sound from the testing machine.
 He also got 3 big shots (2 on left thigh and 1 on right thigh). At first he was a little nervous about the shots but after daddy talked to him he was all pumped up and even said "I want to see how painful the shots are!!" He did so well even the nurse was impressed. He didn't cry at all and was super brave. We were all very proud of him. He won't need shots until he is 12 years old. Timothy weighed 38 lbs and was 105 cms tall, percentage wise he is not on the high end. But we are not worried because he is just a healthy and smart 4.5 year old.

We switched our pediatritian from Dr. Daniel to Dr.Cole. Dr. Daniel was great but I didn't like how we always have to wait a long time to get an appointment for wellness checkups. Dr. Cole is a woman and I feel better for a woman doctor to see Acacia for her childhood years and for convenience matter we also switched our boys to see Dr. Cole. I actually felt a little sad about this but after seeing how patient Dr. Cole was with Timothy, I felt it's a good decision.

Many brothers and sisters and friends have come to visit Acacia during the last week. We got mostly girl clothes and some diapers. Everyone said Acacia is a beautiful baby. Of course her daddy and I think so too but we are biased.

Today is Father's day in Taiwan. I called my dad last night and it's actually been 2 weeks since I last talked to him. I can't wait to take Acacia home next summer for all the families there to see her!

This morning Daddy took the boys swimming so we had some quiet time at home. Acacia for some reason couldn't fall asleep the whole time, she pooped twice and nursed some and finally fell asleep. Looking at her bright eyes I was really thankful the Lord gave this special gift to us. A VERY welcome addition to our family. We all love her to pieces.

無奈的父親

   有一個美麗的小女孩,她的名字叫做佘艷,她有一雙亮晶晶的大眼睛,她有一顆透亮的童心。她是一個孤兒,她在這個世界上只活了8年,她留在這個世界上最後 的話是“我來過我很乖”。她希望死在秋天,纖瘦的身體就像一朵花自然開謝的過程。在遍地黃花堆積,落葉空中旋舞時候,她會看見橫空遠行雁兒們。她自願放棄 治療,把全世界華人捐給她的54萬元救命錢分成了7份,把生命當成希望的蛋糕分別給了7個正徘徊在生死線的小朋友。

  我自願放棄治療

  她一出生就不知親生父母,她只有收養她的“爸爸”。

  1996年11月30日,那是當年農曆10月20日,因為“爸爸”佘仕友在永興鎮沈家衝一座小橋旁的草叢中發現被凍得奄奄一息的這個新生嬰兒時,發現她的胸口處插著一張小紙片,上面寫著:“10月20日晚上12點。”

   家住四川省雙流縣三星鎮雲崖村二組的佘仕友當時30歲,因為家裏窮一直找不到對象,如果要收養這個孩子,恐怕就更沒人願意嫁進家門了。看著懷中小貓一樣 嚶嚶哭泣的嬰兒,佘仕友幾次放下又抱起,轉身走又回頭,這個小生命已經渾身冰冷哭聲微弱,再沒人管只怕隨時就沒命了!咬咬牙,他再次抱起嬰兒,嘆了一口 氣:“我吃什麼,你就跟我吃什麼吧。”

  佘仕友給孩 子取名叫佘艷,因為她是秋天豐收季節出生的孩子。單身漢當起了爸爸,沒有母乳,也買不起奶粉,就只好喂米湯,所以佘艷從小體弱多病,但是非常乖巧懂事。春 去春又回,如同苦藤上的一朵小花,佘艷一天天長大了,出奇得聰明乖巧,鄉鄰都說撿來的娃娃智商高,都喜歡她。儘管從小就多病,在爸爸的擔驚受怕中,佘艷慢 慢地長大了。

  命苦的孩子的確不一般,從5歲起,她就懂得幫爸爸分擔家務,洗衣、煮飯、割草她樣樣做得好,她知道自己跟別家的孩子不一樣,別家的孩子有爸爸有媽媽,自己的家裏只有她和爸爸,這個家得靠她和爸爸一起來支撐,她要很乖很乖,不讓爸爸多一點點憂心生一點點氣。

   上小學了,佘艷知道自己要好學上進要考第一名,不識字的爸爸在村裏也會臉上有光,她從沒讓爸爸失望過。她給爸爸唱歌,把學校裏發生的趣事一樣一樣講給爸 爸聽,把獲得的每一朵小紅花仔仔細細貼在墻上,偶爾還會調皮地出道題目考倒爸爸……每當看到爸爸臉上的笑容,她會暗自滿足:“雖然不能像別的孩子一樣也有 媽媽,但是能跟爸爸這樣快樂地生活下去,也很幸福了。”

   2005年5月開始,她經常流鼻血。有一天早晨,佘艷正欲洗臉,突然發現一盆清水變得紅紅的,一看,是鼻子裏的血正向下滴,不管採用什麼措施,都止不 住。實在沒辦法,佘仕友帶她去鄉衛生院打針,可小小的針眼也出血不止,她的腿上還出現大量“紅點點”,醫生說,“趕快到大醫院去看!”來到成都大醫院,可 正值會診高峰,她排不上輪次。獨自坐在長椅上按住鼻子,鼻血像兩條線直往下掉,染紅了地板。他覺得不好意思,只好端起一個便盆接血,不到10分鐘,盆子裏 的血就盛了一半。

  醫生見狀,連忙帶孩子去檢查。檢查後,醫生馬上給他開了病危通知單。他得了“急性白血病”!

   這種病的醫療費是非常昂貴的,費用一般需要30萬元!佘仕友懵了。看著病床上的女兒,他沒法想太多,他只有一個念頭:救女兒!借遍了親戚朋友,東拼西湊 的錢不過杯水車薪,距離30萬實在太遠,他決定賣掉家裏唯一還能換錢的土坯房。可是因為房子太過破舊,一時找不到買主。

  看著父親那雙憂鬱的眼睛和日漸消瘦的臉,佘艷總有一種酸楚的感覺。一次,佘艷拉著爸爸的手,話還未出口眼淚卻冒了出來:“爸爸,我想死……”

  父親一雙驚愕的眼睛看著她:“你才8歲,為啥要死?”

  “我是撿來的娃娃,大家都說我命賤,害不起這病,讓我出院吧……”

  6月18日,8歲的佘艷代替不識字的爸爸,在自己的病歷本上一筆一畫地簽字:“自願放棄對佘艷的治療。”

  8歲女孩乖巧安排後事

  當天回家後,從小到大沒有跟爸爸提過任何要求的佘艷,這時向爸爸提出兩個要求:她想穿一件新衣服,再照一張相片,她對爸爸解釋說:“以後我不在了,如果你想我了,就可以看看照片上的我。”

   第二天,爸爸叫上姑姑陪著佘艷來到鎮上,花30元給佘艷買了兩套新衣服,佘艷自己選了一套粉紅色的短袖短褲,姑姑給她選了一套白色紅點的裙子,她試穿上 身就捨不得脫下來。三人來到照相館,佘艷穿著粉紅色的新衣服,雙手比著V字手勢,努力地微笑,最後還是忍不住掉下淚來。

  她已經不能上學了,她長時間背著書包站在村前的小路上,目光總是濕漉漉的。

  如果不是《成都晚報》的一個叫傅艷的記者,佘艷將像一片悄然滑落的樹葉一樣,靜靜地從風中飄下來。
