Is life beautiful?

The kids have been down with bouts of flu every now and then. Every month, there’s bound to be one episode. I’m still trying to adapt to the anxiety when they fall sick.

She has serious arthritis and couldn’t walk now. She has no appetite to eat anything lately, has been feeling nauseous. She has been going in and out of hospitals for a month now. It’s really sad to see her in this state.
