  • God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

    I fondly recall the popular aphorisms my father often quoted to ingrain lessons in us. “Nip the evil in the bud,” “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,” “Never stop learning” and so on. The one that came recently to the mind is, “God helps those who help themselves.” This is because I’ve been putting as much effort in healing myself as my healthcare workers did and are doing.  How much effort you, as a patient, put in the pre-operative and post-operative doctors’ recommendations makes hell of a difference in your complete recovery. The exercises to prepare for the surgery, physical therapy exercises, taking prescribed medications timely including painkillers, nutritious food and plenty of sleep must become essential part of your day.  For me,......

    The benefits of my recent surgery are many. In my previous post I mentioned the angelic nature of the efficient health workers. In this one I want to emphasize how important it is to listen to your body when it wants (then demands) your attention. My life was seemingly running smoothly. But occasionally the pain in my left knee disrupted the flow. I pushed the disruption aside and behaved as if everything was okay.

    Dear Readers, Physical therapy sessions, though grueling and painful are doing wonders with my healing and recovery. I should be able to get back to my regular routine by early February.  As I lay in bed at home gazing at the ceiling of my room, Jennifer’s posts at ONLINE MINDFUL WRITERS GROUP: https://tinyurl.com/MindfulWriters on Loving Kindness Meditation made me think of the healthcare workers: nurses, nurses’ aides, physical therapists and so on. How they follow the motions of this practice. Their work is to alleviate pain, discomfort and unease of their patients. Majority of them do their job sincerely and efficiently in an environment where pain is everywhere.  They could have frowned, turned irritable or looked tired but any hardly did. Although the presence of pain was constant and continual they had kind words, soothing gestures......
