Hi, I’m Mathilda! This summer didn’t really start the way I’d planned 😳. One morning, I woke up with a really bad tummy ache. I felt sick as well 🤢, and my temperature was up 🤒. I thought it might have been because of something I’d eaten and that it’d pass, but it just got worse and worse. In the end, mum and dad decided it’d be best to take me to the Emergency Room.
