This morning, as I was going through the Facebook posts of a friend, I realised that he had stayed the night at Hinduja Hospital. I immediately called him up as I was under the impression that his Mother probably was admitted as she is undergoing treatment for cancer. I was shocked to know that it was a common friend who was in hospital for the past one week. Gosh! We are all around 45 years of age and hospitalised? It takes a while for reality to sink in honestly. This friend has a clot in his brain but luckily the vessel hasn’t burst but it has affected his ability to walk, to speak even if he remembers everything.
In the evening got to know that another friend was terminally ill with cancer with few months left.
Honestly I will admit I am shaken up. I am myself sitting on a ticking time bomb what with my health issues but I thought I had started working on them. Now I think I need to double up. Eat less, watch what I eat and reduce stress levels. After what is the point in all the worldly possessions if you can enjoy them? My daughter (all of 8 years) is my life and I just can’t let her down. So will have to work on it with renewed vigour seriously.
