Day 23 – 24

Hey guys !…Here I am again awake at odd hours of the night craving for food and getting excited to go to school and learn new things. I even helped my little brother to wake up and get ready since he goes to school before me. My Dad is dropping me to school and we are still trying to figure out what time works the best to avoid the crowded hallways.

My counselor and my teachers are super nice and has already made arrangements for me in the class. I make sure I wipe my seat and table where ever I go. I told my mom that we will need lots and lots of wipes if I continue to do that. My mom said that she already has a huge order of wipes and sanitizer in place. My mom and dad are working so hard to make me safe in the school and also making sure I am able to keep up with my teammates in 5th grade. I feel so special that everyone is doing so much for me. I told my mom I feel very ready to take up any challenge, I mean any challenge in school, at home, in life!

What I miss most is playing hockey in the basement with my brother and at the rink but I know, as my mom said, I can never forget to skate, I will catch up with my team in no time with lot of hard work.

I think now I should stop writing and eating and go to sleep so that I can wake up again at 5:00 am to go for my treatment.

      Thanks guys, I am doing great and I hope you are great too. I will keep on trying my best and get back on the ice with you.
      P.S. Coach Curt, I will try to shoot the puck in the net so that I do not have to do 5 push ups.

        Ha, Love it Arjun! We look forward to seeing you back on the ice soon! I’ll give you a pass on the push-ups! Stay mentally strong!!! Coach Curt

    So great to see how strong and positive you are. The Marley’s are all thinking and praying for you every day.

    Colin is so excited to be in the same Pod with you at Auten Road. Please don’t hesitate to ask him for help if you ever need anything.

    I’m sure it’s tough being away from hockey but before you know it you’ll be back on the ice.

    When you’re ready I would be more than happy to get out on the ice and help you get back into game shape before rejoining your team.

    Stay strong and keeping getting better!

    Coach John

    Hi Arjun,
    I have been reading your post everyday before I go to school. I like the Ferris wheel LEGO set that you built and I’m so glad you got to go to school. You are super brave to look at the blood, I would never be able to do that!
    I understand that you miss hockey and I can’t wait till we play together again.
