A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint

The last minute post

Posted by Pepper on January 8, 2015

I was *this* close to not posting today. The day has been so tiring. Both physically and mentally.  But then I decided to log on and type this one line. Daddy is in the ICU. His condition isn’t great. But the doctors say they are trying their best to fix things. We’re holding on.

I am so damn tired. I’ve been juggling between office, home and hospital for a week now.  I wake up early and get home around midnight everyday. The crazy commute makes me spend around 4 hours on the road everyday. I kept going without whining. But today was the worst. Daddy’s condition worsened. Things seem difficult for us. Please do pray. Thank you!

    On side note, when I started reading this my mind imagined a hand that was showing *this* gesture…like when we join thumb and index finger.

    Get some rest every now and then Pepper. You need it not only for yourself but also to look after Daddy as long as he is still recovering. As you well know by now my prayers are always with you and will be for Daddy as he recovers and gets stronger day by day. Get out to a park closeby near the hospital if there is one, sit on a bench and sip a naariyal paani slowly, one sip at a time to destress and look at the green around you. It is very salubrious to be able to do that for one’s soul. I recall my sister used to get my mum to do that when my Dad was in a coma due to a stroke several years ago otherwise she would’ve collapsed. Or do anything for 1/2 hour a day that gives you relief and some respite.

    luv and thoughts your way as always

  25. Hi Pepper,
