Sept 5, 2019 – Vienna, Austria
The day didn’t start off too well … when I called Amma around 7.30 am I heard that she had fallen down coming from the bathroom with a small bucket of water. Padma had come home to see her. Amma was speaking normally but it took a while for me to understand that she had a small bump on her head and no other injury. Prashanthi had heard the sound on the first floor because it was around 6.30 am when it had happened and had come down to see what had happened. Amma had a coin sized bump on which Prashanthi applied ice and massaged coconut oil. The swelling subsized quickly.
I cried when I heard the news, because I was so far away. While Amma and Padma reassured me that she was fine, and everyone was around to take care of her, the feeling of not being there was tough. For further reassurance I pinged Ravindra to go and see Amma. He did that in the evening and confirmed to me that she was absolutely fine. They were planning to see the doctor tomorrow as he wasn’t available today. Amma told me to just take it easy and not be worried. We went out only after Ravindra confirmed that she was fine and Prashanthi got her to sleep upstairs.
So we retraced the Ring Tram’s route starting from Schwedenplatz. The entire distance was about 6 kms.
