Here we go again!!
The long quarterly pilgrimage to check on my parents begins now. As I await the Emirates flight from Dallas to Dubai, I am little worried this time. It was not supposed to be this way. My dad’s health had rebounded enough that about two months back, he wanted to go to Puri (an ocean resort with a lot of venerable temples in India). I had booked a nice resort and flight tickets for my parents and my sister’s family as well as my brother’s family. All was set for this trip to India to be spent in the resort with my family. I was not going to go to my parents’ house at all!!
Two weeks back, his kidneys failed and now looks like he has lost 90% of both the kidneys. Forget the trip – he is back to being bedridden again. So, the first worry is to see what condition I am going to see him in. I am hoping he will be slightly better – at least get up on his bed and talk. The challenge is he refuses to undergo dialysis. Let’s see if I can convince him.
But another big worry is how to deal with the nephews and niece. For many of them (and a few adults in the family), this would have been the first time ever they would have flown in a plane. The kids were so excited that they had spread it all over their school among their friends (most of whom have not flown yet either). They are devastated now.
I have to figure out how to make it up to them somehow.
Finally, there is always the goal of creating intersection points and meeting old friends/acquaintances from my long past and make new friends on the road. A lot depends on my dad’s health though…
And they just called us for boarding… so off we go….
Safe trip. Hope things work out in your favor.
Pray to god that your dad is better.
Prayers for you and your family.
Welcome. Please let me know if I can be of any help as far as your father’s health issues are concerned Rajib
Our prayers are with you. Hope things turn out better than you expect.
Wishing you all the very best.
Wishing your Dad a quick recovery
Good luck on your trip, Rajib, and thank you very much for the birthday message! I appreciate it. Good luck with your Dad.
Speedy recovery to Kaku.
Hope your dad gets better. If he is stable, maybe your siblings can take the kids? Else, don’t worry. Kids are resilient.
Best wishes, Rajibda.
Sending prayers for all
Hold on. Be strong. The kids will turn out greater souls vn they go bk to skool & narrate how they “need to care for their old & recovering grandfather this time” n that they will carry his blessings when they make it d next time, either with their parents or Jethu.
Best for you and your family
Caring for an elderly family member is the greater need …surely most of them will be able to fly at one time or another in their lives… prayers for your dad. God Speed on your trip.

Safe travels Rajib and wishing your father a quick recovery!
What happened? Is it an Acute Renal Failure( as you have specifically mentioned two weeks period).In that case he needs dialysis! Why is he refusing it? Chances of recovery are pretty high in ARF!
Even if it is CRF, the chronic variety too definitely needs dialysis till the time we go for renal transplant.Why is he refusing to undergo dialysis? Has he lost the zeal to fight it out? I am remembering the discussion with you ! I cannot contact you over phone.Your first job would be to convince him.
Please give me a ring!
Hope your dad gets better
Hope Kaku feels better soon….prayers !
Sad to know. I am worried about dialysis option available in Kalyani. Let me know if I can be of any help.
Jethu sustho hoye uthun.. Prayers for his recovery
Kaku bhalo hoye jaben . I hope so.
The most effective medicine your dad gets is available once every quarter and it is about to arrive in Kalyani. The moment he gets a dose of that medication ( a visual of his son walking into his Kalyani flat ( or is it Samridhhi now, I lose track of the new names), he will start feeling better. Wish you luck convincing him with the dialysis option. He will need that with only a small fraction of his kidney functioning. Create many more great memories.
We pray for uncle’s speedy recovery

Rajib, my father is suffering from the same case since 19 months, He undergoes dialysis from ILS Hospital, Dum Dum under Dr. Pratim Sengupta, Immediate intervention thr dialysis is required. He will also have to undergo a minor surgery called AV Fistula (its a fusion of Artery & Vein in the hand)
Rajib Roy, wishing your father a speedy recovery and I do wish that the trip to Puri does work out for all.
So sorry to hear this Rajib. Hope he gets the appropriate medical management. Let us know if you need any help.

Wish uncle for quick recovery. My dad had to go through numerous dialysis a few years back. It’s not pleasant, but must to do.
Wishing your dad a speedy recovery, and have a safe trip.
Best wishes to you Rajib da. Praying for uncle’s speedy recovery. And have a safe journey!!
Enjoy you time with your parents. You are blessed to see them frequently, even though it isn’t easy! Due to limited time off and pinched budgets, I haven’t been able to see my 94 year old mom for about two years. I hope to be able to go to Oregon in October. When they get older, spending time with them becomes a top priority. Time we will never get back.
Rajib good luck with your Dad
I get a feeling he will recover when he sees you.
Hope kaku gets better…….
As you share a special bond with your father, your physical presence will enable him get recharged. Wishing him a rapid recovery.
Don’t worry Rajib about ur dad’s health matter…..hope uncle get well soon.
Wishing you and your dad the best. And your family.
