To me, it was a revealing experience…
That I could be that strong in face of adversity!
It came as a sudden shock..
There was no indication beforehand!
My health seemed fine…
I was totally engrossed in my teaching job..
But it happened!
after a few days of intense physical exercise
I found my right leg swollen …
I blamed myself for being over-active!
swelling did not go away even after resting for a week.
had to see the doctor, who felt something hard and suspicious...
series of tests...ultra-sound, MRI..
inconclusive test-results...more investigation..
more specialized physicians ..
ultimately it was determined that I had a rare disease.. Sarcoma!
out of the blue...it happened! no clue
perhaps because I was ignorant of the disease,
I was not afraid...my reaction was -
I had an almost blissful life,
At some point, everybody has to suffer..
God has been kind to me,
my children are grown-up, settled, and
I am proud of their achievements.
my duties are done,
probably it's time for me to fade away!
I had no idea I would survive this dreaded disease,
my daughter slept beside me on that night,
she held my hands, and said - everything will be alright.
I completely believed her.
I was through radiation - calmly attended the sessions,
by myself for twenty-five days,
took the subway to the hospital downtown -
read an art history book while travelling.
had a surgery, the tumour was taken out...
the most renowned surgeon in Canada
operated, and there were no after-complications.
ten years have passed... many visits to the hospital
for check-up. every time a bit of stress..
butterflies in my stomach,
but I am alright ...as my daughter convinced me -
I will be.
