My Journey Has Ended

Mom has always been very supportive and proud of my work.
She has been very excited by my upcoming journey to India.

But these past two days have been nothing less than a nightmare:

My mother has suddenly fallen gravely ill to a cancer that went undetected for too long.

Today, as Mom lies in her hospital bed, I've decided I can not make my journey to India.
Instead, it's now my turn to support my mother, and help her along with her sad and scary journey with cancer.

If you want to follow my Fulbright-Hays colleagues on their trip, you can view their blog here. I fully intend to learn from them, and feel their thrill, at least vicariously, by reading their upcoming blog posts. I hope you will too.

I want to thank my friends for their kind and supportive comments. I'm not going to publish your comments, but your words mean so much to me.
And to my Fulbright colleagues, I will be right behind you every step of the way. I have our travel itinerary on my calendar. Please keep me posted with everything you see and learn.

Again, thank you all for your kind words. I am reading your comments, and keeping them private. I sure am going to miss meeting all my colleagues, and hosts, in India. This is really very hard for me...
