Just another Manic Monday

It’s funny how a single day can carry so much excitement! I have started independent duties from today in the department, and was posted in the out patient today, and to cover all the cases posted as emergencies in theatre. It was great – all Mondays are however terrible days to work on I guess, after the lovely rest of a weekend! Getting one’s engine running again to face the week is a task that all Mondays put us onto!

Anne got us a bit worried today, with a bit of tummy pain. It’s difficult to say when it’s the real Mc- coy! If we should take the pain seriously and pop off to the labor room to check… But the fact that she is OB-Gyn is a useful because she’s able to use their criteria and tell the mild contractions from the real thing. I’m on 24 hour call in the ward tomorrow, I hope like anything that Koby doesn’t plan on arriving tomorrow! That will really bug the rest of the registrars in my department if I hand over the bleep to go and be with Anne … but if it has to be done – it has to be done!

I went to make a visit in the hematology ward today. A few days ago, someone had left a comment on my blog post and said that they were bringing their mother in law for evaluation of leukemia, and it was their first time in CMC. I popped over to meet them – It was a treat. Once again I’m convinced that I went through Chemo to tell other’s who are worried about it that it’s something that can be faced, and that God has a plan even for those with cancer! I’m a living example!

I’ll end with a picture of my sister Tripti and Anne cutting up a watermelon – one of the cool respites in Vellore’s hot summer! This is in our Kitchen at home... And yes, Kumar the picture on yesterday's post is of my parents house in the college campus!

Hi Tarun
I discovered your blog about a month ago and since then I've been a regular reader.CMC was my dreamcollege..well..it still is..My family migrated to the US and so I go to college here, but it is still my deep desire to someday be a part of CMC.
I praise God for your faith."God works everything for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
You, Anne and Koby are always in my prayers!

CMC, rings a bell. Not sure why, but I think my Grand dad or my Auny was treated at CMC years ago when I was a kid. My Dad's bro still lives in Vellore.

Some how the whole setting of a hospital/colony/Vellore really appeals to me. Guess thatz becoz I'm surrounded by a zillion engineers in a city of 9M.

Hope and wish you are at Anne's side when Koby makes it to our world.

Kumar.
