Happy 71st Birthday Mak

Today 5th February, 2010 is my mom's 71st birthday. Happy birthday MAK. May you stay healthy and cheerful always. May Allah's blessings be with you always.... Love ya....



Mak had been through a hard time last year. But because she has a strong will power and a real fighter, for those who never knew she had been sick once before, will never know about it. End of 2008, my parents came to stay with us as my mom had not been keeping well and can't drive my dad for his dylisis treatment. Not only that, she's not that strong to do the house chores as well. She was always on her oxygen machine. When she came to stay with us, she was in such a bad state. After a week, when we saw that her condition worsen, we adviced her to go for a check up at the hospital. My brother brought her to the hospital and she was admitted straight away. The next day, she fell into a coma. She was in that stage for 2 weeks. And my dad, whom was left at home, kept asking for mom. Both of them are very very very attached to each other. Where ever my mom is, you'll find my dad there as well. And when he didn't see his wife for a few days, I can see that he's loosig a part of his life. It is so painful for me to write this, but I just have to let it out. We didn't tell abah what had happened to mak, fearing that it'll come as a shock to him. Abah was fragile that time and we feared for the worst. After 10 days, hubby and me told my siblings that we think, we'll just have to take the risk. We have to bring abah to meet mak at the hospital. So we brought abah to the hospital that Sunday.

Since mak was all wired up, Abah didn't recognised her or maybe Abah just didn't want to accept that he's looking at his wife. Abah held Mak's hand for a long time. That was the last time he held her hands dearly for the following Wednesday, our dear Abah left us, forever...... I miss you Abah...

Mak regain her consciousness after two weeks. We dare not tell her what had happened. Then she started to get curious. What was I doing at the hospital looking after her in the mornings. Who's looking after her husband. Everytime she asked me, I'll divert her attention towards something else and since she's still under the influence of the drugs, she'll just forgot about her question. When we thought that she's ready to be told about the sad news, we had asked our Pak Busu and Mak Busu to break the news to Mak. When Mak Busu told Mak, she looked sad, just for a few minutes then she smiled. That was because, she's not fully aware just yet. And she decided to be fully awared and herself again, when it was my shift looking after her. She asked me, where is my Abah and when I tried the previous trick, she kept asking the same question with her eyes on me! Oh oh... am I in big trouble! Why must it always be me!!!!! Since I have no other choice, I broke the news, the best way I could. Mak is strong. I AM NOT! She just had tears in her eyes, but I had tears streaming down my face!

Anyway, that's a part of Mak's life. The woman with a strong will power, a fighter, a good mother and certainly a very good wife to a very good husband....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAK
AL-FATIHAH BUAT ABAH....

Salam Mamafami,
Thanks for visiting my blog. Reading this entry really brought tears to my eyes. I lost my ayah 3 years ago, but can't stop thinking of him every single day. Hope your mom will be in a great health and always happy to be around her dearest daughter...
