Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

Sorry to hear about your parents.

TB meningitis is the infection of Tb causing organisms in the covering of the brain. Treatment includes a course of anti TB medicine for months with drugs to prevent seizures. Most people make complete recovery with treatment and good patient care. He should be given good nutrition and supportive care for early rehabilitation.

Non hodgkins lymphoma is a malignancy of the lymphnodes. Since it is a recurrence, it requires to be aggressively treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy as recommended by her doctors.

You might talk to the health service providers and your present employers for jobs which can be done from home and at flexible timings. Since you have not given details, it is difficult to tell which way you can take up a paid job and care for your parents. Please do not worry.
