Seems to be fine now before sleeping at 9 pm – he wants to go to the park! But he has a stuffy nose – occasional cough is really disturbing to hear – that’s what we’re worried about in the night. I leave now for my moms place alone now – will be back tomorrow morning.

Story: the boy and the stars

it was a beautiful night and a bunch of kids were all singing and dancing twinkle twinkle little star. Suddenly the stars went out of sight and everyone was disappointed and started crying. Then jaanamari thought and thought for a while. Suddenly he snapped his fingers – he had got an IDEA !

He hopped into an aeroplane just like the one he’d seen earlier – in the afternoon – and flew up higher and higher near the big clouds. Then he opened the window and stuck his head out and fffffffff he started to blow the clouds away. they started moving but his plane started making some coughing noises. He flew down again to a petrol bunk. He called up his dad to pay the bill – said bye and up he went again.

This time he could blow off all the clouds and all the kids cheered and clapped and started singing again !

story; the light

he was almost asleep but my brother in law switched on the hall light for a moment and that got our boy back to his crying mode again – then this story of the light…

There was a bright light and a lizard hiding near it. A fly was buzzing around. It saw the light and was curious about it – came nearer for a closer look. The lizard was hiding – waiting for the fly to come closer.

Jaanamari switched off the light and went to sleep – the fly buzzed off safely but wondering where the light had gone.

It went home and fell asleep.

Still coughing in the morning

Hope a banana helps to take down the throat irritation. Really appreciate that he is facing this calmly. Full credit to mother she explained to him yesterday after he was done crying, that it will try to pull him down but he must face it with a smile. Really incredible to see him struggle with severe cold and cough but calmly talking and answering anything that is occasionally asked even. Wonders of possibilities of communication. Humbles me to realise that simple solutions exist and suffering is not inevitable.

An hour past midnight. Its misery. Unadulterated. We tried to give him a home remedy based on pepper but sweet but he wouldn’t have it – no force – some more crying then finally another attempt at sleep…
