Over the last few days, we have been waiting, watching and praying that Abah would get better and he would continue his recovery. As of today we are grateful that it seems that he can talk and breath well. Abah is using his voice more and seems to be more aware of his surrounding each day. We were blessed to see that he quickly came back to his baseline and continued to do well.
Abah manage his secretions better and doing much better in swallowing. He aren't there yet, but we have positive signs that he is headed in the right direction. This help him use his voice more clearly. His flexibility is improving as well as his balance and reach.
The first day when he was discharged from the ICU, he was still wearing the breathing tubes and attached to so many wires..now that he has been transferred to the normal ward, he does not depend on the oxygen supply and not wearing the breathing tubes anymore. We will remain hopeful this will continue and accelerate.
We have been blessed to have Abah out of the ICU and with the children being around visiting him at the ward, he has responded well to their love and noise.
He joke around and said "Look darlings, why you guys so freak out..I'm healthy as a horse!" (while showing off his chest to his grandchildren)..
He loved being around his children and grandchildren because he said we are a big part of the healing process.
We remain very grateful for this blessing. Nevertheless, we will hold firm to our faith and hopes and pray to Allah s.w.t that Abah will continue to make progress and this will be the last season we do not see him fully engaged. While we wish it were over, we continue to hope Allah gives us strength and hope especially to our mom to get through another day . In syaa Allah.
