As Stephanie mentioned, I am taking a break to travel around the state of Rajasthan while her mother is visiting. The purpose is to make room for Trisha as well as provide a break for me. I will be with Cash and Dianne for another month following Stephanie's departure (and, hopefully, an additional month in June if a second round of treatments is possible). Needless to say, it does not take long to get stir crazy in the confines of the clinic and our 10' x 12' quarters.
The past two days I have been in the holy city of Pushkar. Today I dropped a rose bud into the sacred lake and offered a prayer for Cash. The lake is an important religious destination for pilgrims. Some of Gandhi's ashes were even spread upon the waters of one of the 52 bathing ghats. Whatever god or gods reside here, I pray they will watch over our son.
