Assalamu Alikum,

Pray All is well. Our dear friend, Ramadaan is about to leave. Inshallah there are a few more days left. May Allah SWT make it easy for us to make it the fullest . Ameen.

One of my teachers, called us while we were in Edmonton, and she told me, always look for the little blessings in life. These things will tell you that Allah SWT is watching over you…..and it makes things easier. Allhumdulliah it is true, the little blessings in life is what really counts. Today I ran into a sister who I have not seen since the spring. We chatted for a little and than we went our separate ways. I went back to Samaah and she went back to work. Later this evening, Hassan and I decided to go to Taraweeh. After we came back, we saw this sister again, this time she was waiting for us to return to the hospital. She baked us cake, brought dates and marshmallows (From her trip to Edmonton). Mashallah it was a great surprise! This is just one of the examples of the “little blessings” we have been seeing. May Allah SWT bless all of you with His mercy and forgiveness, for making this time easier for our family. Ameen.

Samaah’s Update:

- Sleeping for the last two days, only to wake up for tests etc.
- Blood work taken, part of the infection tests
- Results from the Galium Scan not back
- The ECG shows there is a little bit more pressure on her lungs, but inshallah nothing serious (the doctor said)
- Going for a scan for the heart (forget what it is called)
- Had a temperature, but was coming down this evening
- Feeds have not changed
- Waiting for the tests to figure out the next course of actions

Allah SWT is the greatest of planners …

We spoke to Samaah’s Dadi ( Who calls her Gungun) and she informed us her aqeekah will be taking place on Friday inshallah in Bangladesh. The aqeekah has been delayed, but inshallah will be completed very soon :P

Allahumdulliah it is SOOOOOOOOOOO cold here in Saskatoon. It is slippery and snowy. The trees are filled with icicles and the sky is dark. We will take a picture to show all of you guys. A few days ago someone in the hospital mentioned how winter starts after Thanksgiving, and I was like oh…but it seems like it really does ! Isn’t it like against the law for snow to fall before December of something?! Our Saskatoonian friends, does winter really begin this early, or is it a trick? Please do inform us. Man I think I really need to get gloves this year! Where is the UTM book store when you really need it…..
