It has been awhile and it is not like I have been too busy to write here either. Bangalore was great, felt like a kid on vacation. Was pampered by the grandparents, shopped with the mother and ate way too much. Spent hours just lazing about, reading and chatting with the family. My grandmother has a secret garden on her terrace and I found myself enchanted by it. I would water the plants, sit there with a book and was the first one to see the water lily bloom. Was quite magical.
My mother-in-law and aunt-in-law spent a couple of nights with us in Bangalore and it was rather nice. They are very laid-back and no-fuss people and we spent a good amount of time together gossiping and eating as usual. I was a bit sad to come back to Hyderabad, I miss that feeling of being surrounded by family. Also, I realised my gparents are becoming old and I don’t know how much more of these sort of visits I will have with them. I truly treasured this visit though.
I came back to Hyderabad bearing sambar powder, new clothes and some pretty jewellery. It was a good trip, only slightly clouded by a general medical check-up which had me undergo a whole bunch of tests etc. The last week in Hyderabad has been meeting doctors, going for a scan and hopefully meeting another doctor in the next couple of days who can make a proper diagnosis. Still don’t have a clear answer to what the medical problem is and what the next step is, so will leave it at that.
