Dear Friends,

This is an open letter to all of you who have so kindly responded to Janet’s(slmret) post about my health. Thank you one and all, for your kind words and caring thoughts.

Just the fact that I am home on this beautiful soil of the USA, has made me feel good. The children are all over me, taking care and not allowing me to do anything at all. The cardiac rehab will start next week it seems.

I will try to post something about the nightmare I went through while in London, in the near future. Blessings to you all.

Love, Zakiah.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    Im so happy to see your post! I am anxious to read what happened, but knowing that you are safe and sound at home and being well cared for is enough for now. Rest, relax, and feel better, please!

    As I’ve said privately, I’m so very glad you’re home and in the good hands of the American doctors! We do have excellent medical care — it’s access that is in dispute — and hopefully the doctors will be able to bring you back to good health in short order. I, too, will be anxious to read your story of the trip to London, as much of a nightmare as it sounds! Do what the doctors tell you, and get well soon! Love and hugs

    Oh my, I wasn’t aware of your health problems. No wonder you hadn’t posted in a long time. I hope you will recover soon.

    I’m so relieved that you are in good hands and recovering! Your family’s loving embrace is powerful medicine in itself – let the healing begin! As part of the circle of people who love you, I will continue my prayers for healing and strength!
