Vitalis is a 4 year old boy who was admitted several days ago with abdominal swelling and generalized edema. He has generally not felt well and has been crying a lot. He has one of those cries that is piercing and you hear it from 2 wards away. As I entered Ward 2 today it was quiet. To my delight I found a smiling Vitalis grinning at me from his mother’s side. We are treating him for Nephrotic Syndrome and today his swelling was down and his spirits were up. Hopefully he will continue to recover.
