I know, I know, I know…I’ve been missing in action for some time now and you must be rolling those pretty eyes and wondering why. I was really held up on the personal front. There was a medical emergency in the family, and I had neither the time nor the inclination to come and talk to you guys. No inclination b’cos I didn’t want to rub off my sombre mood onto you all. I like to spread cheer, not gloom. Luckily, all our prayers worked. God gave us the strength to brave the situation, and a major disaster was averted. All’s well again, thanks to a wonderful set of Doctors who worked a miracle with their healing hands. I have always admired the medical fraternity for their selfless work and my respect for them has only increased many-fold in the last one month. Thank you Doctors, for giving us your best and saving a precious life in the family. Saying ‘thank you’ seems lilliputian in comparison to what you have done for us, but that is the only word I can think of to aptly express our heart-felt gratitude. Thanks to all the support staff at the hospital too. I cannot think of anyone else being able to give the kind of focused attention and care to the patient like you guys do. I humbly bow down to all of you for your selfless service. Thanks also to all my friends and family for the prayers and wishes…they really helped us stay positive throughout.
