Assalamu Alikum,

Inshallah everything is going well. This is the update for the weekend:


-She had the last Gallium Scan
-Went for an ECG for the heart
-Her breathing has calm down since last night
-Her oxygen level has been lowered, still on it though
-Her respiratory rate has calm down a little
-The rest we are waiting to hear about

Wassalamu Alikum


-The oxygen is down now
-RR is staying stead, and calmer
-Sleep most of the day
-Pretty Hydrated
-Has a fever
-Changed her room, so now she is across the hall
-Waiting to hear about what is next inshallah

Allhumdulliah, this weekend was pretty challenging for Samaah. She was not in great shape at all on Friday night. Her lungs had so much water that it was pushing down on her livers, and she was crying non stop for two days, only to break for 20 mins or so to nap. She was on almost a liter of oxygen, which was a huge deal, cause she came off it 2 weeks or so earlier. She must have been in a lot of pain. The doctors were pretty worried through out the weekend, but Allhumdullaih Allah SWT knows best. She is now is pretty Stable. Hopefully we will hear about the results from all the tests on Monday morning. But Mashallah today she was sleeping most of the day, must have been exhausted and pretty week. But she did give Papa a smile (actually a few) before we came home. Which was the first in a few days :P But everything happens for a reason.

A friend of mine (actually all of ours, but she will remain nameless, just because it is more fun this way) sent an email saying: dua is the 'mukht' (bone marrow of ibadat). Mashallah such a great reminder for all of us. Allah SWT always has our backs.

Please make du’ah for everyone, especially those who are suffering.

Wassalamu Alikum

P.S- saw a sign on the way to the hospital this morning “Saskatoon is the Multicultural capital of Canada”…not quite sure what they define as “Multiculture”

Also , Hassan still thinks it is summer, so he has been wearing sandles, and still is. The only thing is, when we left the hospital this evening, it started snowing like crazy!

    Don't get sick Hassan!!! Just cause you have unlimited sick days, doesn't mean you should use them all.

    Hadrat Aa'isha (Radiyallaahu anha) relates: Whenever anyone of us would become sick, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)would pass his right hand over the affected part of the sick person's body and recite the following dua:

    Azhibil ba'sa rabban naas washfi. Antash shaafee. Laa shifaa-a illaa shifaa-uk. Shifaa-al laa yughaa diru saqamaa

    O Allah, Lord and Sustainer of mankind, remove his difficulty and cure him. You are the only One who cures. There is no cure but Yours. Grant such (complete) cure that leaves no trace of illness. (Bukhaari and Muslim)

    Hadrat Salmaan (Radhiallaahu Anhu) says: Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) visited me when I was ill. When he was leaving he told me, 'O Salmaan! (and made this dua for me):

    Ka shafallaahu durrak. Wa ghafara zambak. Wa 'aafaaka fee deenika wa jasadik.

    May Allah remove your pain, forgive your sins, and grant you strength in your Deen and your health until your death. (Tabraani)

    lots and lots of duuas,
    ~afshan and wajahat
