Health and House search

I went through the final review on Friday for the femur fracture and the x-ray shows quite healed but left with the message of weak bones, for which I have to continue on medicine for few more weeks. Doctor has also advised to be very cautious with the leg being weak bones, I can’t think of getting up or standing very soon… my knee wasn’t steady yet to support standing on my feet. Pain has reduced much now, except for the little more stiffness on knee to bend normal to keep my foot on the wheelchair footrest and I am almost sitting on the wheelchair for the whole day to only lie at night, life has been nearly back to normal. I stepped out of the home after quite three months in rest and tried climbing into the car and went a round around the neighborhood.  

First I went to the beach nearby, since moved very close to beach in Palavakkam I couldn’t make visit to it frequently unlike being little away from the beach, it was quite surprise to see it pretty clean in my life. Can’t even see a bit of litter anywhere and the newly laid road leading to the beach was inviting with road studs neatly placed on both sides. Next we drive to Elliot’s beach in Besant Nagar and find the Schmidt Memorial taking a new leash of life in pretty white… glad at last the authorities are taking action before it become apart. While returning we checked few house for rent at Besant Nagar and Adyar, as we suppose to shift house this month we are in serious search of house.

We checked an independence house in Kalakshetra colony and it was very pretty and modern facade  with enough space around the home, but it seems they are suppose to rent it only for a year and that too to IT salaried. Another house near Besant Nagar bus stand was spacious inside and also quiet in environment but the owner is said to not allow pets and we are expecting to talk with him to convince. My parents checked many apartment flats, but most of them deny allowing pet and the houses that doesn't have issue with pet aren't convenient. The house searching has become quite irritating these days and the brokers we approach were also taking us to the houses the other one showed and in real not many knows the detail about the houses they show! In between we are also looking forward to extend our stay with the current house to search for a better one without much hurry, because we are already paying for being hurry at deciding the house with just outlook, this time we’re careful not to repeat the mistake.

Good you stepped out! The beach air must have been so refreshing! Take care and I'm sure you will recover well soon. And don't loose hope on the house hunting... It can be frustrating but stay positive... Things will work out!

I am glad the pain is lessening and that the fracture is healing well. And yes I agree with extending your stay at your current house so that you don't have to hurry looking - you want to be able to take your time finding a place and not feel hurried.

I'm glad to hear that you are getting better and can now get out after being home-bound for so long. I don't envy you at all when it comes to house hunting, but I hope you find the perfect place.

Good to know that you are feeling better now and started going out!

It is difficult to get houses where we can have our pets, nowadays, the flats never allow.

All the best, Jeevan!

Good to note that are venturing out. The recovery is slow but steady. You need a lot of courage and perseverance. House hunting can be very frustrating. The land lords put so many conditions. I am sure you will a good place soon. Best Wishes.

Of course if you can take more time to find a new housing spot, you will be pleased you waited. I am glad you got out for a drive and found less litter. There are big fines here up to $1000 for littering but people know they can do it easily as the police are too busy to stop to write the ticket. Canada is quite pristine though compared to the rest of the world, but our young people and new immigrants need some tweaking.
