Something that changed my life

Life is very  unpredictable. One moment there is all peace and the next moment anything can happen which completely changes the life of a person.It happened with me too about ten years ago. All our children had gone to Kerala for a holiday , only my  husband   and myself were alone in Delhi. One day while taking bath, I noticed a lump in my breast. I called my daughter and told her.She came and after seeing the lump she took me to the  hospital, where I had a  needle test. The Doctor confirmed it was cancer. He recomended mammogram and biopsy, which confirmed cancer. Strangely I remained calm and composed on hearing this news.In the mean time my children had also come back.  
                                The surgery was conducted  in mid July. I was in the hospital for two weeks. My lovely hair were cut because I  was unable to lift my hands. Slowly my legs  started paining. It was excruciating pain. One day, out of curiosity I just checked  the television about that particular medicine. To my utter shock a study report  clearly mentioned that the bones of the the legs are badly affected.  I had to take the tablet for five years but I had taken it  for  four years. I had to use a wheel chair for any movement. No surgery could be done- Now there was no possibility of to change the situation.. I  have accepted the fact and  live without brooding or blaming my life.  The fact remains that my life was completely changed.
