So many people are suffering in so many ways since past few months due to coronavirus. I’m 5 months pregnant now and in March my mom suffered a bad stroke which has left her completely paralyzed  on the left side. It’s 3 months now and she is still in hospital, still unable to talk or swallow. My family warned me not to see her on video as I am very close to my mom and will not be able to see her in that condition. But today I missed her a lot and insisted on seeing her on video. I was shocked to see her with tubes running through her nose, mouth. I started trembling, yet I gathered some courage and tried to talk to her. I could see her eyes move rapidly as though trying to say something. I showed her my bump. I could see a little tear in her eye. That’s it. I can’t stop thinking about her. I don’t even know if she coukd recognize me or understand whatever I told her. She can’t even say something is painful or she needs something as she can’t talk. She used to believe in god so much! I don’t know where that god is right now. I’ve been sleeping on a comfortable bed, eating all 3 meals and my mom is on hospital bed. 
 

Worst part is we are unable to travel to India to see her/ be with her in these rough times. And the hospital bills are just shooting and somehow we are trying to pool in some money. 


I know there are people who are suffering even more, losing lives and what not! Hope all this will settle soon and people can live their normal life. I’m only hoping my mom will be fine by the time my baby is born. I don’t expect anything.. I just want her back normal and I have so many things to share with her, ask sorry and tell her how much she means to us. Just one more chance! 

 

Sending lots of good vibes to all!

Congratulations on pregnancy.  There are many people who are unable to have a child. That’s a blessing of god.

Sorry about your mother. Unfortunately it’s a time when there are a lot of people suffering a lot worse. One of my coworkers has  lost four family members during this pandemic. We should always be appreciative to god for what HE has given us. It is time to be closer to god to ask for your mother’s healthy life and not try to blame on god or stay away from god.

I hope and pray your mother gets better soon and able to see your child soon. Please try to stay positive. It’s good for you and your child 😃
