After a Long Journey… Music to my Ears

Diabetic patient

My Mother is a Diabetic patient.

It was year 2004 when she was diagnosed with high Blood Sugar levels. Tears rolled out her eyes.

We, as children felt too bad to see our Beloved Mother cry but we were helpless.  We consoled her that it will vanish soon. However, Inside we all knew that it will be a long journey and a difficult one.

She started trying all the remedies- from Jamun(Indian Blackberry) powder, Karela(Bitter Gourd) juice to Multiple medicines.

What I feel the most difficult part was Pricking the needles regularly to check Sugar levels. She herself accumulated the courage for this and started doing the same at home itself.

Time passed, Doctors changed, Medicines increased but the levels remained same without any much improvement.

Regular walk is a must for Diabetic patient… and she followed this rigorously without any miss. Whether its too Hot or too Cold or some guests had come- she always had an escape for her walk.

Hats Off! To her “never loose hope” attitude and “try till the Goal is reached” motto.

This year, 2015, came as a Gift for her and whole of the family. It was in October when her Sugar levels came out to be normal in regular multiple tests.

When I got a call from my Mother to hear this long awaited Good news, it was like a “Music to my Ears“.

I could feel the happiness in her voice and her watery eyes again, but this time they are for good.

I sighed with relief and replied “Thank God”.
