"I love going to school and playing with my friends - I study in the second standard, I'm a big boy now! Three months ago was my first day at school and I was the most excited because all my notebooks were new and freshly wrapped in brown paper! But I felt really sick after and was rushed to the hospital - since then I've gone to school only twice. Appa tells me that I have a problem in my liver - I don't know where that is.
Appa delivers gas cylinders for a living - he's the best father to my brother and me. I've fallen ill many times before, and whenever I do - he makes me feel better and tells me the best stories to make me sleep.
These past five days have been really bad - my stomach has been hurting and whenever I tried to speak my mouth would start bleeding. My parents were very stressed out - they were both awake all night to make me fall asleep.
My mother sang all my favourite lullabies and promised me that I would go back to school soon. I want to be healthy and go back to school and all my friends… I miss playing hide and seek with them!"(excerpt)
