Hello! I am Raomal Perera, 54 year old Sri Lankan/Irish man living in Dublin, married to a fabulous lady from Blessington, County Wicklow, Ireland with four lovely children ages ranging from 18 to 27. More about my family later on.
I’ve decided to keep a diary about my journey, starting from where I am right now. I am in hospital about to undergo a Non-myeloablative Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation (put in simple English, we call it a bone marrow transplant).
This is my journey, my world, as I see it ( or as I saw it). There may be instances, where it may look very different from someone else’s eyes and their version may be equally valid and true. I do not wish to offend anybody, but only to use this platform to talk about this particular journey (transplant) of mine first, and from time to time look back to my complete journey as a method of communicating with my children. Are there lessons to be learned here? Do we impart knowledge through pure osmosis? I am trying to take them with me on this journey so that they get a chance to get to know me better.
