What we do all day

Thursday was a semi-typical day at the clinic. Here is a description, with illustrations.

We woke up and had breakfast. Cash had an egg. Then we checked our email to see what happened in the States overnight.

Cash then got an injection of stem cells.
Then we headed downstairs for Occupational Therapy with Bhawna and Physical Therapy with Donesh.

After PT, it was 10:30am and we had a break until Cash's afternoon PT session at 2:15. We do different things different days but this day we went to visit our local market and bought chips and barfi candy. Then we went for a stroll through Deer Park. Cash usually rides in his stroller for these trips (the traffic is insane) but I made him get out and walk down the market for the picture. He was exceedingly grumpy about it though you can't tell. I had to take a million pictures to find one where he wasn't whining.

After 3:00pm, we were done with therapies for the day. Sometimes we just hang out locally, sometimes we go to the mall. Today we went to Dilli Haat market to get purses with elephants on them for Aunt Dianne. Two papier mache cows insisted that I buy them. And a little local boy insisted on tickling Cash's knee, much to Cash's delight. We also drank chai, which is simply called "tea" here.

Then we went home and had dinner and the sisters came to do their evening check on Cash. He likes to check his own blood pressure.

You will notice that there are no pictures of dinner or bathtime. That is because dinner was an hour late and we were so hungry I forgot to take a picture. And there is no hot water (ARRGHH) so there was no bath. But here we are asleep in our narrow little bed with the air mattress that inflates and deflates constantly all night long. We are dreaming of lentils and elephants, of course.
