I am back. I think. And here to explain why I was away. Exactly a couple of weeks ago I found out that my mum had a couple of blocks in her heart. And this came as a shock and surprise. Especially because my mum is only 52, is thinner than I am and fitter than I am. She eats healthy, exercises almost every day. How in the world does someone like that end up with blockages in the heart which is supposed to be a consequence of unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits?! True, there is a family history of heart problems on her side of the family but still! The doctor reckons it might be stress-related (even though there were no cholesterol problems).
Anyway, she was supposed to have an angioplasty last Tuesday but then an angiogram showed a third blockage. Resulting in the decision to conduct a bypass surgery. Which then got scheduled for the Saturday gone by. And fortunately, all went well. She was in the ICU till last night and is now in the ward. I haven’t spoken to her since she’s been out of surgery as she’s tired. But I hope to talk to her by Thursday. One other good thing for mum is the support of neighbours and family friends…they have been so very helpful right from the start!
So anyway, you can see why I haven’t been in the mood to blog. Been worrying about mum. Been angry and frustrated at my grandmother, who by the way, is the cause of all the stress for mum and dad. [She won’t even leave for a few months (to go to her other son’s place) to allow my mum to recuperate! She is so selfish and narcissistic that when mum was going for the operation, she asks my sis if there will be time to go and exchange a sari for her! What planet does she live on?! And she wanted to celebrate Diwali despite mum being in the hospital and being scheduled for the bypass surgery the next day.] Been having some sleepless nights. Been wondering whether to go over or not. Been worried about how to go over given that I haven’t applied for my Aussie passport yet. Been a bit stressed out with work stuff and doing some extra studying for an upcoming training.
So yeah, it’s been a crazy few weeks.
And at the end of it all, all I want is for mum to get better and recover soon. So sending all the positive vibes and prayers down your end mum! Take care…and love you!
