This is a story of how we had best of both the worlds and hit back harder when the universe took its revenge!
This is a story of how we went from this:
and hit back with this:
Here is the full story.
Last summer my family left me alone for a month and visited India. I being the full blooded Indian male that I am, did the thing every one in the same situation does. I missed them terribly and while doing this, I had a whale of time.
Rounds of lake Washington on my bike, learning Kayaking and then taking the kayak to places where it has not gone before :), especially almost full day pedaling through Lake Samamish, Samamish river and lake washington, watching Blue Angles from the water.
And the debauchery continued even when the gang came back.
It had to stop some where and it stopped one day when I was trying to do my first hundred mile ride on my bike.
I broke my leg and tibia plateau. We really had a pretty bad time. Adding to this the complications in anesthesia which made me spend a night in ICU. This was easily the worst night of my life with kids + Pallavi balancing on rickety chairs whole night praying for me to recover. We were stranded in a strange country with no family nearby. Our kind friends were the only support structure. But we were definitely staring in an abyss.
At this moment, we started fighting and crawling back one step at a time. Pallavi and kids showed incredibly courage, we recovered together.
The exact numbers do not matter. What matters is that we not only fought together but also improved the earlier conditions!
And all this has been possible only because of the tender love and care shown by my better half. Also the steel and resolve I really never knew existed.
And now we hit an arbitary deadline of reaching 70 kg of weight, just a number in general scheme of things, thanks you pillu for every thing. Here is for more and more challenges and goals together!!
Let's make lemonade when life gives us lemons!!!
