Return to India

Bullocks Decorated for the Upcoming Pongal Festival

It has been nearly three weeks or more since my last entry. My time in Boulder with my daughters and the rest of my family was wonderful. Boulder was cold, snowy and beautiful as always.

Unfortunately, while I was in the US, my husband contracted malaria and a staph infection in his left leg and had to be hospitalized at a hospital in Pondicherry. I flew home several days early to be with him. After a week of continuous IV antibiotic drips and other medications at the hospital, we are back in Tiruvannamalai. His leg is still red and swollen from the staph infection, but his energy level is up and he is eating again.

I will write more about the experience but am just getting settled back into our routine so it may be a few days. In the meantime, Happy Pongal!
