Just heard from my mum that an auntie’s granddaughter passed away days ago.
Shocked at the news, as the girl was only 6 years old, and I met her downstairs only a few days before.
Apparently the girl suffered from 惊风 (infantile convulsion), which affects kids between the age of 1 – 5yrs old, and is the top 4 most common illness among kids (according to baidu, other sources – acupunture.com, wikisource).
Never underestimate the power of frights. That’s the reason why parents (except those who do not believe in chinese medicine) always feed their child 惊风散 – a kind of powder that helps to reduce the amount of fright in a child.
Rest In Peace Charlene. You will be remembered in our hearts.
