Liku-liku Kehidupan

As I sit here, or anywhere, I have been feeling numb lately. I try to cheer up, for my family, but I feel my chest very heavy...

First, Muhammad was admitted due to acute bronchitis last week. That was a blow to me as it reminded me of how Ibraheem had his athma...and he still has it now. Muhammad is now recovered and I am still finding other alternative medicine for him. Tak sanggup tengok dia gulp down those drugs like Ibraheem has been doing! I have tried giving him a tiny bit of menuka honey and habbatus sauda oil, so far, Muhammad looks good.

But, the biggest blow came on Saturday when my SIL Azura, was admitted to Damasara Specialist Hospital for some rare blood disorder condition. What came to mind immediately was leukemia, mashaallah, God forbid.

Much earlier this year, I posted a story about her being tested positive for CA125...but that somehow came out negative, and she was having a stomach TB instead, also a very rare desease. Since that eposide she has not been really healthy with bouts of cough and cold.

But yesterday, her doctor in APSH confirmed that she is having an acute leukemia, I don't know what that really means, but, her bone marrow is 80% cancerous....

I visited her after work yesterday and she seemed in high spirits. Next she will be transferred to UMMC and she will have to go through three cycles of chemotheraphy...whatever that means to me, am also not very sure. I mean the after effects, the support that she needed, etc. I have obtained Raden Galoh's number through Shaheida, so guess I will ring her one of these days.

I know the world cannot just stop just because of this, but hey, it's only about 10 days after awal Muharram, and I can't imagine what's next to come for the family. I guess everyone has their own fair share and I pray that all of us will have the strength to face this mega challenge. Amiiin....

Be strong dearest. With every kesusahan datang kesenangan jua...only Allah SWT knows the whys and secrets of all that is bestowed upon us...whatever we do, redha dengan segala ketentuan - hanya Dia yang memberi - hanya dengan kuasanya Dia mengambil. Will keep your SIL in my doa n prayers.

Salam KG.
I hope your SIL will get the right and very effective treatment though it sounds not so good..kesian dia yer..make sure she gets her way..cheer her up and of course mintak tolong dari Allah. Try minum air zam2 banyak2 jugak..I rasa ada jual kat Tabung Haji.

Hope anak you cepat baik lelah too.

My duas for your family especially your sister in law. Hope she braves through this test in high spirits. Take care Yanie.

May Allah give you and your family strength. After hardship there will always come ease...

BTW mashaAllah is used when things are good... in this case you might want to use subhanallah instead .... I had one arab friend complaint about the way the malays use the word mashaallah not in the proper context..

Hi Yani,

UMMC, then i think ur sil will be treated by "u know who". She and her team are really good at her work. So ur SIL will be in good hands.

We just pray for good health and strength for what come may.

Hugs.

Naz said...

Yani,
I'll pray for her. Stay strong.
Take care, dear. You need to take care of yourself to take care of them.
*hugs*

SOHO Mama said...

Hi Yani, best jumpa you all malam tadi :)
I'll pray for you SIL too. Today, another online friend of mine who makes and sells cupcakes just sent me a message saying she just a surgery. Breast cancer. About 8 years younger than me and have a 3yo daughter.
Take care..and hope to see you soon!

Happy New Year to you and your lovely hubby.
