It's a happy day for me today – Anne and Tripti have cleared the first part of the Post graduate exams.Yeah! Yipee! Tripti’s friend called to tell us that the results are on the net! They have both been short listed for the interviews on Jan 30. There will be about 3-4 candidates contesting per seat. God has been so good. Anne has been by my side for each chemo, not really able to read, entertaining visitors, helping me with food, dressings, bloods etc and still God has honored us so far. The doors may still close – there is still an interview to go, but we put our faith in Him as always!
Amma (Anne) made a beautiful chicken biriyani for lunch and I have put in a picture of Ammachi and her standing proudly next to it. It’s amazing how I can put biriyani as my preferred choice of food – any meal!
We made a visit to town and hospital again today. A friend of ours is recovering from a surgery on the kidney and we spent a little while with him. I must confess that I would have been the last person to visit/ spend time/ pray for an admitted relative or friend in the past - but my lymphoma and subsequent stay in hospital has changed my entire outlook to that. Some of the great words of prayer have been said by different people who visited me in the ward – and except immediate post op or right after my chemo (?duh), I welcomed such intrusions of our “space”.
