Felix Wong’s Wife Talks About Her Recovery from Leukemia
Felix Wong‘s (黃日華) wife, Leung Kit Wah (梁潔華) was diagnosed with acute leukemia half a year ago. After going through five rounds of chemotherapy, her condition has finally stabilized and Kit Wah was well enough to be interviewed on television, where she gave encouragement to other victims of the condition. She also praised Felix for having been an amazing husband.
Kit Wah recalled how she initially thought that she was merely suffering from the common cold, “My heart would beat very quickly, and I frequently felt fatigued. I also bruised easily. It was only after a blood test did I realize that I was suffering from leukemia.” Kit Wah admitted that at first, she found it hard to accept her diagnosis but Felix offered her unwavering support.
Felix expressed, “She was so worried about what would happen to her. She was instructing me on how to handle certain matters [if she goes]. I knew then that I could not express any fear, so that I did not make her feel even more afraid. I kept encouraging her.”
Kit Wah revealed that the process of undergoing treatment and all its side effects inadvertently caused her to develop depression. She said, “The doctor informed me beforehand that I would lose all my hair but when I woke up one day with all my hair gone, I could not help but cry uncontrollably. I developed depression and felt anxious and afraid all the time.”
Fortunately, Felix was by Kit Wah’s side all the time, and she could lean on him. Kit Wah said gratefully, “While he was looking after me, he was also busy with work. Even though I was suffering, he was also suffering. I am very, very touched. He is an all-around amazing husband. I have no idea what I would have done without him!” Felix said modestly that he was merely doing his duty as a husband, and trying his best to be positive for the sake of Kit Wah.
Couple Had Contemplated Divorce
The couple’s 27-year long marriage has not always been smooth-sailing, and there were several big arguments over the years. Kit Wah said, ‘We once even discussed the prospects of divorce. He asked our daughter whom she wanted to [live with], and she said she wanted to be with, ‘Mommy’. He immediately realized that he did not want a divorce, as he would be left with nothing.”
Felix added that they have learned to communicate rationally with each other, and treasure each other more. Kit Wah also praised their daughter Adrian Wong (黄芷晴) for having become more mature over the years.
