Chapter 1444: Why is Getting Married so Hard? (5)
"A shadow in the brain?" Qin Chu furrowed his brows.
Huo Mian nodded, took out her phone, and showed him a picture of her father-in-law's CT scan.
Qin Chu remained silent after seeing it.
He was also a neurosurgeon and understood what was happening better than anyone.
A shadow in the brain was not a good thing.
"Honey, don't think of the worst. Maybe it's just a tiny blood clot＃' Huo Mian softly comforted him.
"If it's really just a blood clot, it would've been absorbed by now, but it's been so long and there haven't been any changes. It's definitely a tumor."
"Maybe it's not malignant＃ Brain surgeries aren't difficult nowadays. You were successful with Zhixin's surgery, no?"
"Sweetie, you don't have to comfort me. I'm a neurosurgeon too, I know the potential outcomes way too well＃ No benign tumor grows at the center of the brain."
Qin Chu never thought that his father would develop such an unacceptable condition.
"What should we do now? Convince Dad to get treatment in the States?" Huo Mian asked.
"There's no use going to America＃ They get insane yearly fundings for cancer research, but after so many years, it is still incurable＃ The procedures are the same there as they are here, and we don't know what will happen after that＃"
"If it really is a malignant tumor, how much time does he have left?" Huo Mian carefully asked.
"A year at best and a few months at worst＃" Qin Chu's tone was serious as his eyes filled with unspeakable sorrow.
Huo Mian never had close contact with patients with brain cancer, so she was not too knowledgeable in the field.
"So＃ What are we going to do now?" Huo Mian was quite worried and didn't know what to do, so she asked again.
"We'll take Dad back to the hospital tomorrow in preparation for treatment. We should try not to agitate his nerves to prevent spreading."
"Mhm, and our wedding, should we postpone it? We'll have it after Dad gets better, it's never too late＃" Huo Mian suggested.
"Dad＃ is not going to get any better in the future. The wedding is a must. Otherwise, he may never get to see it."
Qin Chu's voice was mournful...
He wasn't worrying over nothing, he studied at Harvard School of Medicine for many years and knew where the disease was heading.
His father seemed fine now, but if his condition worsened, he might not even be awake for their wedding.
How could he witness their happiness then?
"Mhm, we'll do as you say." Huo Mian nodded in agreement.
That night, neither of them slept well, and early next morning, Qin Chu headed straight to GK Headquarters.
Huo Mian made plans to go shopping with Zhu Lingling and Jiang Xiaowei to buy wedding essentials.
The media continued blasting the couple's upcoming wedding all over town.
Many people were invested in the wedding, they all wanted to see how grand the GK President's wedding would be.
- At the Song Estate -
Song Yishi rarely went out these days, she hid at home and almost never left.
Mrs. Song was really worried about her daughter's condition and kept comforting her, "Yishi, how are you feeling?"
Song Yishi did not answer...
"Are you upset over Qin Chu's upcoming wedding?"
"You're lying, oh you," Madam Song thought that Song Yishi was upset over the news of Qin Chu and Huo Mian's wedding.
"Mom, their wedding won't happen," Song Yishi slowly said, enunciating each word.
"Yishi, are you planning to do something again? Please don't, if you really anger Qin Chu, that boy won't let you off easy＃" Mrs. Song was worried that her daughter was going to start drama again and immediately tried to stop her.
