I want to wish the readers of this blog a very happy new year. I have some good news to share. Both my daughter and son have come to live with me. My daughter’s name is Kimboi (14 years), and my son is called Lalcha (12 years). So my mother was able to go back to the village.
Both my children will stay with me now. I am also trying to get both of them admitted to school. My son will be going to the 3rd grade, and my daughter will go to the 4th grade.
I am very happy to have them with me. We often spend time playing with each other. My kids make food for me and they do all the work at home.
They also sleep with me sometimes. Earlier they didn’t like living with me.
My elder brother and my uncle also came to meet me. For years we hadn’t met. We stopped speaking to each other even before I started my treatment. They had known for some time that I was ill but preferred to keep their distance. But as time passed they felt the need to reconcile.
I feel like MDR-TB has brought my family together.
My elder brother promised that he will give money for my children’s education. We are waiting for him to come back.
I am getting medicines regularly. I feel good. I have not had any side effects for a while.
I am also making a small garden. I have planted mustard, some potatoes and onions. I also made a small bathroom.
My wish for this year is that my children study well.
