High, High Fever

September 14, 2009

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Dearest Bint,

Just few days after Akhi had high fever and a terrible cough, it was your turn eventually. Being close range siblings are like twins to both Abi and Ummi. “Kalau satu dah sakit, yang lagi satu tu tunggu sakit je.” A common expectant in sibling and family members being sick especially the common illnesses.

On the first day that you had fever was just normal fever, which subsid after medications. On the second day, your temperature seemed to shoot up to about 39.5 degrees. Alhamdulillah, it was the day Akhi was to have his follow-up at the Paeditrician, so we brought you along. Seemed that you too needed the antibiotic when Nurofen no longer working. Hmmmm… my, my, my, our pocket money was really running very low (the next day is Abi’s pay day). Alhamdulillah, with Allah’s grace during this blessed month of Ramadhan, the rezk, came from some useful source – no, we did not land in any debt. Alhamdulillah. Without any discount and debt, we managed to pay for both Akhi and your medical fees.

During this period, Ummi thanked Allah the Almighty that this happened during the September 09 school holidays. Alhamdulillah, Abi was around most of the time when he was needed by you – to feed you, to carry you, to comfort you, etc, when everything that Ummi did to console you failed.

With Allah’s grace again (and again and non-stop), both Akhi and you recovered from your main sickness (high fever) by the 4th school term. Just for you, with the leftovers of cough and slight runny nose.

Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah. Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, Laa-ilaaha illallah, Allah Akbar.

Wassalam
