Unwell

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Ya Binti,

Since we came back from the KL trip for the haul, both Akhi and you have not been yourselves. Ummi thought it may be the changes of climate between Singapore and Malaysia. Wallahu a’lam.

Few days after the trip – Ummi sensed that your 2-week cough during sleep was getting worse. It was on Thursday that you began coughing even when you were awake. It rang the bell for Ummi to seek the doctor regarding your health.

On Friday, we went to the Paediatric clinic as the symptoms shown by you were just like Akhi’s when he had his terrible cough about a year ago – that asthmatic cough. Alhamdulillah, doctor did not diagnose you with bronchiolitis or bronchitis. You were very phelgmy when the doctor listened to your chest and back. You were prescribed the antibiotic (augmentin), phlegm medicine and also to puff you 4X with 3 puffs per session. With the medication given to you, resulted in vomitting sessions and passing motion that led to changing of bedsheets and also frequent change of clothes (Abi, Ummi and you).

Alhamdulillah, by Sunday, your cough subsid. However, you woke up at 2.30am with a very high fever. Ummi administered paracetamol and doused you in the bathtub of water for about 15 minutes until your body temperature dropped. The medication neurofen has been given to you since then as the high fever comes and goes.

The hikmah behind this maybe…. the haul this year focused on sabr(patience) and Allah is really putting us to test based on it. Allah is All Knowledgable and All Wise. So to Allah we seek help.

May Allah grant Ummi and Abi strength to overcome this challenge and many more to come in seeking patience(sabr). Ameen.

Wassalam.
