The Pin is GONE!

The pin is gone out of Adam's finger!!! He is soooo thankful too! If you don't know about his Finger Surgery, click on that link and read about it :).... Anyway, this time it wasn't as eventful as the original surgery... we didn't have to check in or get a hospital room.... We went in to see his doctor and he took us into this room to take out the pin...
They numbed up his finger and put a tourniquet on it and got ready to pull!
He had to do a lot of twisting and wiggling to get the pin out of his bone, but after a bit of work, the pin is out!! Adam is glad to have it out! (you can see his smile in the pic below) :) His doctor, Dr. Mukherje is really funny :) He started to take the pin out with forceps, and then he went to the pliers... well, the pliers were HUGE! He was having trouble pulling the pin out with those big pliers... Adam joked with him and said: "If I had known, I would have brought my needle-nosed pliers"... the the doctor said: "that would have been good"... haha! In the pic below, you can see him with the pin out (and in the pliers).
Here's a close-up of the pin and pliers (below)... although you can't really see the size of the pliers in this pic, but you get the picture :)

Auugh! I didn't realize how big the pin in his finger was!!
I know there are tons of Mukherjee's here, but every time I meet one, I wanna ask if they're related to Rani. :) One of these days, I'm gonna find my Bollywood connection!

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand). Everyon…
