Anonymous Devotee from Australia says: Sairam Hetal Ji, I am very glad that I came to know about this blog and able to share my experiences with Sai. Hetal Ji, please post my experience with our Sai. This is my first post of my experiences in your blog. You are doing great work Hetal Ji. Baba’s blessings will always be with you. Please do not disclose my email id and my name. I want to be anonymous devotee of Baba.
Baba, I am extremely sorry for the delay in posting my experience with You. I shifted Australia in 2009. I had a really hard time for getting decent jobs. I was not happy with the conditions I was going through, but still I managed daily to bear decent rented house to stay with family. Here we just had couple of friends, and completely strangers in this country.
Then things even got worse, when my wife got diagnosed with cancer last year. I didn’t know what was going on. I was thinking that I didn’t have good job and that was the worst thing and all of sudden this illness came and I was mentally totally broke. I don’t know how to manage, of my take care of toddler, my wife with her illness, or go to work. As the treatment was very serious somebody has to be with her all the time in the hospital. I was not able to keep my son in the childcare full time as it’s very costly here.
I had no idea what to do now either go back to India or stay here and get my wife the treatment done. Since the doctor told that she has cancer, I and my wife cried a lot. I can’t even cry in front for her, but I couldn’t control my tears too. It was just keep falling down. But I had to give her hope that everything will be fine. When I came back in the night at home with my son, after he sleeps I used to cry a lot. I kept asking god why this did happen to her, why this in my family, what was wrong done by us?
Then one morning, I had a dream that I saw an old man and my grandfather (he passed away in 1985). They lift me and throw up in the air and I was like flying. I was scared that I might fall down, but the old man said I am here. Don’t worry of anything. You will be fine. Then I woke up. I thought who can be the old man. But then I realized that the old man was none other than Shri Shirdi Sai Baba himself. In India, my grandfather’s photo and Sai Baba’s photo are side by side on same wall. Surprising but I was very happy on that day.
My mind changed after that I got the strength to do things all of mine never cried or got worried. Automatically All the Things just were happening. I just surrendered all my worries to Sai Baba. Things just keep happening. Sai Baba took care of everything and gave her the best treatment. My wife got the best doctor and best hospital staff. With the hospitals letter, we managed to call my mother in law to Australia. When she came, she took care of my son and cooked food for us, and I was looking after my wife in the hospital full day. Sai Baba also took care of the expense for the treatment and house expense. The social worker from the hospital told us that we might get special benefits from the government in our position. So one by one, all my worries were taken care by Baba.
As for the treatment, Chemotherapy was started for my wife, when her body got weaker day by day. First treatment course was for 45 days. Within 35 days, she was at home. Here again Baba blessed her. Her body responded well to the medicine and she was discharged after 35days. Six months passed, every two weeks she had to be in hospital for chemotherapy and two weeks in home for recovery.
After six months, doctors said bone marrow transplant has to be done. Her bone marrow didn’t match with her brother. So we had to get it from the international bone marrow registry. There is a long waiting list before she can get it. But we never worried of that, as we were sure Sai Baba will take care of that too. And that’s what happened. We got a call from other hospital that she has got a donor and she has to get some test done before the transplant. The entire test were done everything went on good and we got the date for the transplant.
One day, before her transplant, she got admitted to the hospital. Before going to hospital, we went to Sai Baba temple and I bought Sai Satcharitra to keep it with my wife in hospital. Took blessing of Sai Baba and UDI, and from there we went to hospital. Whenever I got time in hospital, I used to read it for her. Night time, she used to keep Sai Satcharitra under her pillow.
Transplant went on smooth, she did respond well to the medicines. With Baba’s blessings, her blood counts and her recovery were progressing. Doctors were satisfied with her conditions and surprised too. So she was discharged from the hospital soon.
At present my wife is at home recovering with the blessings of Sai Baba. She will start living like normal healthy people soon. Now we are waiting for Baba to call us to Shirdi and have His wonderful Darshan. Soon, this wish also will fulfilled by Him.
Finally, Miracles are happening on every moments of our life. It is just that we take note of only the big ones. Baba has helped me always in my life and He is there always around me. Thank you Sai Baba, be always with me and take care of all of us. I bow down to Sai Baba’s lotus feet with all love and offer every letter, every word and every sentence of the article at Your feet and pray that may You give courage to every reader and bless each one.
SHRI SADGURU SAINAATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.
