Below is page 8 of my: “Memoir: Foolishly Brave Unconditionally Blessed, From a Chinese Girl to American Working Mother”.
(Continued from page 7)
I was taken to a hospital in the nearby town, since there was no hospital in the village. I remember the hospital room was all white, very different from my grandparent’s mud brick house. Grandma and I slept in a small bed in the hospital room for several days. Some friends and relatives came to visit me and brought me crackers. I used to like crackers. But while I was in the hospital, I tasted a cracker, and thought to myself, “Why doesn’t the cracker taste good anymore?” After I recovered those crackers started to taste good again. Since then my forehead has a dent in the right temple.
Many years later, my mom told me that my grandparents were scared. They dared not tell my parents about me being hospitalized until I recovered.
Suicide neighbor and my friend Xiaoxia. China 1976
When I was about six, our neighbor’s mother committed suicide by hanging herself. She left her husband and three young children. The oldest son was about my age and his name was Xino. His younger sister was a girl named Xiaoxia who was about five years old at that time. They also had a one-year-old baby brother. Such a poor family! Three kids lost their mother at such a young age.
Late one afternoon I was wandering through the village with nothing to do. It was too early for dinner and my grandma hadn’t called me home. It started to get dark. Most people had gone home since there was no electricity in the village.
Just then, I saw five years old Xiaoxia standing near a pile of trash crying quietly. Two older boys were standing by her. I walked closer and saw the two boys using a stick to put manure on Xiaoxia’s hair. Even though the dark brown manure was stuck to her hair, Xiaoxia was just standing there and crying.
