(An Article written by our mother, Meera) 3yr old It was a happy day when I had my second baby boy. Everything was so beautiful and new. But, on the third day my baby fell ill with a stomach infection and started having motions. By the fifth day he was totally dehydrated. Then began the rush with high dose medicines. A cut was opened in his vein and drips were administered. We were all praying. Seeing my three day old braced with medical paraphernalia made me anxious and nervous. God heard our fervent prayers, Rizwan recuperated. All seemed to go well till he was 7-8 months, but then we realized that he still could not balance his head. From there commenced a saga of many trips to doctors and hospitals. My June (Rizwan) was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. This came as a shock. Honestly, we had never heard of it before. After recovering from the initial shock began the reality of everyday life. June was special, so every thing in our life became different.

I finally got Juney on the phone. I spoke for 5 mins and he heard me babble for that much time. It's quite a big task to get him on the phone. Actually, that's the easy part; he likes mobile phones, but only for listening to music. To get him to actually listen to you talk, is the bigger challenge! I applied a different strategy today, speaking to him like a grown up. I told him I'll be coming to Lucknow next month to take him back. And that I miss him because no one makes tea for me anymore. QED! Phone to his Ear , not without style though!
