Baba - The Saviour Of My Life
Finally after two days they had done a MRI (brain scan), called us for a meeting with a team of three doctors and broke the news that our new born baby had a Neonatal Stroke on the left side of his brain. We were shocked to listen to this, they explained the whole process that at some point during labour a part of my baby's brain did not receive oxygen hence that part of brain cells died and there was no way of reviving them. They told his right side of the body may be weak and his speech might be affected. They could not tell anything exactly as the doctors still don't know about stroke in babies. They just asked us to wait and see and pray to God. There is nothing they could do about this. The only positive thing we were told was as baby's brain is still developing there is a chance that other brain cells could take over the function of dead cells. I was totally devastated. I wanted my baby to be healthy. I never thought that something like this could happen to him. I cried a lot, did not take care of myself at all. It was very hard for my parents to see me suffer like that, they had more sorrow than me as they have to take care of me and my son. My mother also cried a lot but she always told me that 'Our Baba is always there with us and He will never let anything like this happen to us'. But I did not believe in my Amma I thought Baba did not do anything to stop this happening to my child, I cried a lot in front of Baba.
Finally my baby was discharged after few days and we were told that physiotherapist will be visiting my baby to monitor his progress and offer therapy if required. It was very tough for me as a mother to see all this. My mother used to apply Udi to my baby's right hand and leg daily. I prayed a lot to Baba asked to forgive me if I had done any mistake knowingly or unknowingly, I surrendered completely to Him. I started doing Satcharitra Parayan daily. I was told that first one year of my baby is important for us to tell if he would have any problems in the future, they scared me a lot. My little baby was achieving his mile stones one by one but I used to get very tensed reading all the stuff about stroke on internet. He used to show some weakness symptoms on the right side. But Baba never lets His child to suffer, miracle of miracles is my baby has hit all his mile stones on time if not ahead. The first word he uttered is 'Baba', he is now 14 months old and he does not have any symptoms that doctors and physiotherapists scared us of (weakness on right side etc.) He is a very active and naughty boy and loves Baba a lot. He shows Baba's Picture and utters Baba's name 20-30 times daily.
Koti Koti Sashtanga Namaskarams Baba, I am indebted to You not only in this life but also in coming lives. What I learnt from my experience is to have Shraddha and Saburi on Baba and surrender to Him completely. He will do the things in His own perfect time and in His own ways which we can never think of. One year was very tough time for me but Baba was testing my faith in Him and He showed His miracle in form of my little miracle. My faith in Baba has increased manifold, I pray to Baba that my faith in Him should increase day by day and i should never forget Him in my life even for a second. Please Baba I am surrendering myself on Your Lotus Feet, please guide this small devotee. I have many more miracles of our family. I will share those in future posts by Baba's grace. Thanks for reading my experience, Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogi raja Parabrahma Shree Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Baba's Grace And Presence
Again, two years back, I was troubled by my child's health and Baba came in my dreams and told me to make donations of some specific things in a temple. I did that later in a Sai temple when I got the chance. Recently, my child was unwell again. I was very troubled and did "Sai Prashnawali". Sai answered saying my troubles will be gone in 10 days. I prayed again saying it was too long and asked again, and He said I will be tension free in 18 hours. The next morning I prayed again to reconfirm that today my problems will be gone, and He answered that I will be tension free when I wake up next morning. Needless to say, my problem was resolved within the day and the answers in Prashnawali came true! Often when I read Sai Satcharitra, I feel my questions are answered soon and aptly by Baba and it has happened so many times that it just couldn't be a coincidence. My faith in Baba has been reaffirmed so many times and I feel like whenever I talk to Him, He does answer back and reassures me. I am ever thankful to Baba and the grace He has showered on me, and for being with me whenever I need Him. O God Incarnate Sai, You are our kind and loving Mother and protective Father. Please stay in our hearts and bless our souls, and let us all remember You always and be thankful to You in our good times as well. Om Sai Ram.
Thanks To Baba
My experience as follows: My younger sister is going to USA and my mom is very attached to her and that’s why she did not come visiting us during holidays so that she can meet her one time before she goes and situation such arise that her going to my mom's place was not working out and my mom cannot travel long distance due to her health condition. When i talked to my sister, she said that it looks impossible to go to my mom’s town to see her as she does not have time. I just prayed to Baba please don’t let my mother feel disappointed as she wants to see my sister and her family. Look Baba's grace and His Maya, He pushed the visa schedule for later days and my sister could schedule her visit to my mother's place. Thank You Sai Maa for granting that wish of mine. I am sure my mom would be very happy. Once again Om Sai Ram to all the readers and thanks for reading my post.
