Back Home

We are finally back home after what feels like forever. It has been a major turning point travel of our lives for many reasons that I’ll be covering in the days to come.

Before the overwhelming thoughts of the events of the past one month dilute my concentration, let me share the important updates many of the wonderful readers of this blog have been eagerly waiting for.

My mother is doing fine and is recovering well post surgery. Though the side effects of the anti-cancer drugs, weakness, emotional turmoil and the fatigue of a long travel are quite evident, yet I know it in my heart, she is fine.

I have no words to express the gratitude I feel for all you wonderful people for helping me in this very tough period in countless ways and mostly by lending me your loving support and good wishes when my family needed it most. The knowledge of having so many people keep my mother in their thoughts and prayers was a great moral support in this tough phase.

Like every dark night, the darkest hours are over with a return back home marking the crack of dawn. Though the ride is still uphill and I have no time to breathe easy, let alone think about the many tasks remaining unfinished. Despite everything, being in the safety and warmth of our home we all are feeling much happier and relaxed, including mum and Pari.

It has so turned out that mum’s tumor was in its initial stages, yet a very aggressive and fast spreading one. Our prompt action proved very helpful in controlling the spread of cancer. Though I’ll be sharing more details in the days to come, I can’t stress it enough that if you or your dear ones have been putting off annual health checks, please get one done today.

If you are a female (with or without family history of breast cancer) please be vigilant and do perform the very easy to do and quick ‘self breast examination’ on a regular basis to note any changes in appearance, feel or lumps right at the start.

Last but not the least, breast cancer is a curable disease if detected early, so never take any signs lightly and please don’t postpone consulting your doctor for a convenient time. Afterall, its not just about your health, but the happiness of your whole family.
