Hi friends, a very good morning to all friends, hopefully all are doing well.
Well, tomorrow is another important day for my father, so far as the diagnosis of his disease is concerned. Tomorrow, FDG – PET [Fluoro-Deoxy-Glucose Positron Emission Tomography scan] is to be done on father. In concise, FDG PET is a new-age imaging technique that instead of using radiations, use the metabolic functions of the cell, to create an image from head to toe]. FDG-PET scan has the potential to detect any locus of abnormal cancer cells [Primary and secondary].
No other option now, but to wait for the results and hope for the best.
All these days, while almost visiting every oncology hospital, contacting several sites of Oncology hospitals, I was getting an impression that life can be best taken as journey, well yes with obstacles at it’s different phases.
All through my life, i have been an workaholic….. i knew probably only one thing – that is to work, work and work. Some incidents that happened to me previously almost turned me into a cyborg. A no non-sense doctor who liked only his work. Struggling against different difficult situations, created within me a false impression, that everything is achievable by human beings if he/she exhibits the hard work.
At this difficult juncture of life, two realizations are hovering over my mind. The good one – I have not been completely transformed into a Cyborg yet, still tears shed from these dry eyes. The disappointing one – well, we are just human beings, who can only do their maximum and the rest is to be left on the almighty.
In this ages of economic downtimes, a fast paced world where the depth of relationships is getting shallower by the day, probably we all are getting more and more unicentric, running after money, ambitions. And all these, is probably deleting those precious times, when we could have spent a little more time with our family and friends.
Yes, fully recognizing the need for the extra money, specially with prices of essential commodities rising every month, still probably workaholics like me need to slow down, create a balance and spend more priceless time with the close ones.
