Anxiously awaiting...

There's nothing much to update but I know that friends are pretty anxious and eager to know what the results are. It is confirmed that Mr D has cancer. What stage and how bad, we've yet to be explained. We have been told that the surgeons are looking into the matter to decide what treatment is best for him.

In my last entry, I mentioned that Mr D has had a procedure for a filter to be put in through his neck. No, it was never done. The procedure, apparently, is quite risky. Therefore, to prevent the blood clot from travelling upwards, they are giving him Heparin via a tube through his arm. This medication has not taken effect, so his left leg is swelling up. Imagine walking with that!

I have seen the pictures of his oesophagus - all swelled up with pus. It's no wonder that he can't get anything down it.

Dear friends have been texting me, asking how I'm holding up. Well, apart from the house being in a mess, things are okay. I may be crying, but it doesn't affect my daily activities - just some housechores not done because I spend less time at home now. Yesterday morning, I had tears in my eyes which couldn't be hidden from my Little D. He looked at me and asked, "Kenapa Mama nangis?"

He waited for an answer but I couldn't find anything to say.

Suddenly, my little boy had grown into a sensible and mature boy. He said, "Sebab Abah sakit ye? Tak pe, kita doalah..."

Come on, Mama... "Tak pe, kita doalah..." And that's what I'm doing.

Salam D,

I'm truly saddened to hear about the news. Be strong ya D, will pray for Mr D speedy recovery. Wish I could just hug you now....take care dear friend.

Salam D...Take care ye..solat hajat banyak2. Masa Wan was diagnosed with cancer last year, all of us were so sad and worried. I am sure you are facing the same at the moment. Recite Yassin, if possible everyday. That is Wan and Atok is doing now, everyday without fail and pray hard, InsyaAllah, masih awal lagi. Hugs to you and take care. Moga2 dapat menempuh ujian ini dengan mudah, InsyaAllah...

Hey Dij

Feel guilty that it takes news like this to re-connect. Went through all your postings and am happy to see your kids all so grown. I especially like the one of your son who took a nap during prayer...classic!

Your daughther really is a princess. She looks a lot like you.

I am thinking of you and your family. Being a tough cookie that you are am sure you will ride this one through.

Take care. Hugs hugs hugs!
