The Art of being Sickly

1. G’s dad had a complicated second bypass surgery.
2. G has a bad asthma attack, combined with a pneumonic patch on the lung – which puts him in the ICU.
3. G gets chickenpox. So does our live-in maid. Both are shipped off to Meerut to recover, while I run between office and home, while cooking and cleaning and looking for a part-timer to look after some of the work at home till our maid recovers.
4. I leave early from office today, feeling slightly feverish, with a sore throat and a few red spots. Have spent the rest of the day in bed. The spots don’t seem to be growing, and I’m hoping it isn’t chickenpox.

  1. Tut, tut. Better go to the airport and get yourself checked for The Latest Media-Hyped Non-Disease!

    Get well soon, though.

  2. G ??

    God bless him/her…..I came with a funny mood !!

    me: My husband. 🙂

  3. I know a few Tantriks who are pretty good at Jhada and Buri Nazar and the works… need their contacts?

    On a more serious note… try and get your place fumigated once before the monsoon sets in.

    me: Oh yeah – need to do that. Also need a vacation now!

    Isn’t chicken pox of those things you’re supposed to get once in your life? Did you get them as a kid? Not usual if you say ‘No’, ’cause I didn’t either!

    me: No, hadn’t. 😦
    In fact, when my brother and I were kids, our Mom used to take us to all those other kids’ homes who had chickenpox, hoping that we’d get it too and be over with it forever. 😛
    The idiots that we are, we never got it then!

  5. Eeeks! Your poor family.
    I hope you are alright now, and that all are recovering well.

    me: Yep, all good now. Had such a crazy spate of beemaaris lately! Need a holiday now. 🙂
    How’s your father doing? I hope he’s reading already?
