Once she was back home post her treatment and medications for recurring aortic dissection, I took a hard, strong look at myself.
Amma is the sort of person who followed rules precisely – the right amount at the right time in the right way. If the rules were wrong in a domain in which she understood nothing, she would follow the wrong rules precisely too.
She had had a recurrent dissection mainly because she was mainly following rules laid down by appa and me on what medicines to take. And we both possibly did not do a good enough job when it came to organizing her medications and assisting her in scheduling the right medicines at the right time.
So, on the one hand, I was not contributing much to her medication treatment. On the other, I was making things worse with my short temper, which, added to amma’s dominating personality, resulted in frequent fights between the two of us.
In essence, if I continued with my careless attitude towards her health and with my poor temperament, I was practically trying to light a bomb everyday inside amma.
For the first time in my life, I felt responsible for amma’s life.
