Well folks I just got discharged from the hospital now fit an fine. It was a 10 day stay and the problem was vertigo and very low sodium levels. The doctors were excellent and their diagnosis was perfect and I was soon up and about. I had plenty of time to rest and reflect on issues concerning changes in my life-style. Yes I did come to the conclusion that I need to slow down and do the things which I always wanted to do but missed out.
The hospital itself was more like a health-resort a quaint World War II vintage construction but remarkably well maintained. The nursing sisters and medical assistants were always kind and caring. They were always cheerful and and kept the patients in good humor. True to the adage – “laughter is the best medicine”
I’d love a share a few more pictures from the hospital garden and of a most breathtaking view of the sunrise. In India Sun God is believed to be the King of all the planets and is responsible for controlling all their movements; he is the lord of excellence and wisdom. And many patients waited for the sunrise to offer their salutation and prayers – Soorya Namaskar! . A good reminder to those who patiently waited to view the sunrise and the day break reminding us that life goes on and we are all blessed.

A word of advise is to check your sodium and potassium levels periodically. A balanced diet will make sure that all salts and minerals are maintained at the right levels.
A small prayer for my fellow patients some of who are suffering may they get well speedily. “If these flowers were wishes, then my wish for you is to get well soon”.
