The Trip that wasn't meant to be..

by AJ
(New York)

My mom passed away on May 18th, 2014 due to a massive cardiac arrest.It was totally unexpected and came as a big shock to everyone in the family. She had fractured her leg last year and had a surgery for the same but hours of research tells me that cardiac arrest could have been due to DVT(Deep Vein thrombosis) Wish I had some knowledge of this before hand. I feel really guilty. I am 30 years old and have been living in the US since 2006 and my parents had never been to the US.My mom and dad had planned to come on July 11 to stay with me and my wife here in NY till August 27. This was going to be her first trip outside of India and first time on a plane. My heart almost sank when I got the news. I really miss her. Wish I could hug her and pour my heart out. I spoke to her two days before she passed away and she sounded so normal. Wish everything was just a bad nightmare.I saw her the last time back in February 2012 and little did I know that it would be the last time I would ever get to see my mom alive. Love you Amma. Miss you loads.
