First and foremost, I would like to express my deep gratitude and sincere appreciation to my wife Dr Amna Khalifa Tillisi (Senior Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist) without whom I would not be here to tell my story! I am so sorry for your anguish, pain and suffering, and tears of worry. No matter how bad things were, you have always been there for me to lend me a helping hand and to try your utmost to help ease my physical and emotional pains. You never ever complained, YOU ARE AMAZING!

My daughter Alia and my son Riyadh, thank you for your help and support through such a very difficult, turbulent and challenging time to all of us.
