Bad news
Posted August 9th, 2010 - 7:50 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
I´m sorry to say that I won't be able to travel this year anymore. Though the condition of the illness of my wife is still inconclusive, she will have to submit to a surgery to extract a gland and then have it examined. She's been treated by Brazil's best specialist in the field so things will happen this way - and I shall commit to her during some following months and so cannot commit to the Incredible India journey as was so eager to share with you fellow travellers.

But at least all this planning gave me much knowledge about this amazing country and made me include India in my schedule, with priority. I shall go there as soon i am able to.

Hope you who wil go enjoy a lot the trip and tell us that won't much of our experience so we can follow your steps soon.

Cheers from Rio.

am so sorry to hear about your wife's illness, and hope and pray that she is well soon, with the surgery being a huge success.

a daily prayer for both of you in mine, and a special prayer to the One above to keep YOU healthy and well, to look after her in this time of need... plus a beam of positive energy from goa, and me, to you and your wife.

we will miss you. maybe at some later date, you AND your wife, could visit our lovely land, and then we promise to show BOTH of you how incredible india is :)

saudes to that !

Dear Rogerio,

What a pity!. I'm so sorry to hear that your wife is ill and you can't travel with us. You have done a great job for all of us. I appreciate it very much.
I hope the condition of the illness of your wife will rapidly improve and you will be able to travel to India maybe even with your wife.
Take care and best wishes to your wife.

Cheers

Thanks to you all fellows for your sympathy.
I am always optimist so I think very soon I will have good news to tell you. And resume travel.

I was travelling back to Costa Rica and just read this thread. I'm so sorry to hear of your wife's problem and that you won't be able to travel with us. I'll keep you both in my prayers.

Hi fellows,

Just to inform that my wife's operation succeeded. And even though the results of the biopsy weren't the best, they weren't also the least bad. So she will have to receive some radiotherapy but according to the doctors she won't 'die of it'.

Perhaps all is settled by the time you will be on your way to India, but I couldn't/can't commit to it in advance. I also have committed to my University course instead, something I could do and is giving me great pleasure.

One lesson I had: not to postpone anything. I was last year planning to travel this second semester. But then I anticipated to the first and had the opportunity of meeting a lot of CSers in Istanbul and had a most amazing trip, which I wouldn't had done if maintained the original plan.

Cheers to all, hope you a good trip and hope also to have enough information here to follow your steps, during and after the journey.

Rogerio.

Sorry, there was a typo: I mean the results WERE the least bad.

I'm so glad to hear that the surgery was successful! I hope her recovery will go extremely well also.
