Request for Sick Leave

I'm behind with my entries, because I've been sick and miserable. To take sick leave, one must visit the hospital and get a doctor's note. I did that. Without checking any part of me, the doctor said I had the seasonal flu and wrote me a prescription for acetominophen and a tincture of which I am to put two drops in a basin of boiling water and stick my head over it to inhale the fumes. It is quite effective. Today at school I was still feeling a little poorly, but I could see that a boy in the front row was feeling a lot worse than I was. At the end of class, he handed me this note:

Madam I am sorry that I am not able to attend my classes as my stomach pain is getting worst and worst. At morning I thought of staying home but I was worried about my studies so I came at school baring the pain, but my stomach is growling like water boiling. Madam I am really sorry that I am not able to bare the pain.
So Madam, please grant me leave as for my excuse Madam.
Your Class VI student,
Thinley Lhendup

I felt very sorry for him, but it was hard not to laugh at the note. Naturally I granted him the leave.
