A word of assurance 

Is all I need at times.

A has fallen sick all of a sudden today. She was all good till yesterday night and started complaining about a little cold in the night. Midnight, it transformed into a little pain in the throat and it gradually increased into the morning. By afternoon, cough and fever too have added to the woes. 

Anything concerned with health, cough, cold, fever, anything for that matter, we resort to our homeo doctor. Am not sure since when the family has started consulting him, but I have known him since my marriage. All these 12 years, he would be the first person to go to, for any issue , for any person, and that includes A. A started her first medicine from him, when she was around four months I guess, when she has got cold. The authority with which he assures us is something I find most comforting. He makes everything sound so simple and his medicine works like a charm.

The most beautiful part is he is accessible in all ways. He has got his clinic in our apartment and visits twice a day, which means we don’t have to travel anywhere to visit him. He is ready to give the medicine over the phone , because of which I could travel confidently with A to New Jersey and had a stay with out a worry, as for any slight cold or cough, I would call him and get the required medicine at any hour of the day. He answers e-mails, responds over Whatsapp too, if we ever have to send some related pictures.

So today, when I went to get medicine for A, I was informed that he had gone to Bangalore and would be back in Hyderabad only on Monday. I was left with no option but to call him. We gave A the medicine he advised. The fever has come down a little, but hasn’t gone totally yet. This should have normally put me in a state of total panic given that the fever has been like that since afternoon, but the only reason am feeling calm, is because he has assured that the fever would be gone in her sleep.

In these days of so much of commercialisation in the field of medicine, I find this doctor a saviour in many ways and his words of assurance are what are keeping me calm.

All at random 

Since I ran out of all possible ideas to post something for today, here is an outpouring of things at random.

  • V’s sister is here for a short break and V’s cousins too came home for their break . So all of us went for Raees movie yesterday , and it was a total disappointment 
  • Since everyone was here, V’s atta decided that all would have lunch at their place and the post lunch chit chat went into the evening 
  • Since we had lunch at their place, A decided that every one would have dinner at our place 
  • Post dinner, the one sky lantern that was left out during Diwali was flown into the air and it sort of turned into an adventure going up and coming down
  • We ended today’s day with an ice cream at Almond House’s Indulge 

Done for today, see you tomorrow 😊

Hope I get some innovative idea to post tomorrow 😊

Why why why ?

Is V inclined towards getting tattooed  ?

Can’t I align with this desire ?

Does V have that in his to-do list ?

Do I think it’s painful and not worthy ?

Do I prefer the simple temporary ones over the permanent ones ?

Do I have to be a blocker for something he wants to do ?

p.s. Fell asleep. Posting 4 hrs and 4 minutes late 😩

Finally !

After continuous picks of so many chick lit books and light reads including Sophie Kinsella’s Can you keep a secret and Twenties Girl, I wanted to read something different.

And then all of a sudden John Grisham’s Sycamore Row came home. It suited perfectly for the change I was looking for. I started this book so many weeks back and I was like stuck with it. Neither could I leave the book in the middle nor could I finish it faster.

Finally am done with it today. Off I go in search of the next one !
