Recognizing the looming likelihood of getting another KO with the 4th dose quite soon, I might as well post a quick entry regarding my latest chemo.
Alhamdulillah, in general, the whole day went well and I could not have asked for more. The nurse got the cannulae in with her first attempt(this time I offered my left arm as I think it's time to give my right arm a deserved break after the previous three doses =). They also managed to get the drugs from Weston Park hospital relatively early this time around, and the whole thing finished by 345pm. Excellent job guys!
I certainly missed my nasi goreng telur for lunch, but at least Yusuf Ghumra was kind enough to drop by from his placement in the Urology Department to give me some hot foods and a Walkers crisp. Rezeki yang tak disangka-sangka. That further reinforces my belief of the endless love that Allah showers to His servants. How Gracious and Merciful is He. SubhanAllah.
Other than receiving visitors later in the afternoon (Shahnom and Furqan came over from the masjid), I've thankfully brought my laptop along to keep myself occupied throughout the day. Or else it would have been a horrendously long, long day.
Oh yup, Jep, you know you really should have stayed for my 4th dose. Ever wondered why?
These pictures were taken on my way home from the hospital today. Jep, tough luck mate. =)
Salam sayang to everyone back home. 4 down, 8 to go insya Allah.
Allahumma 'afini fi badani [O Allah! Strengthen my body]
Allahumma 'afini fi sam'i [O Allah! Strengthen my hearing]
Allahumma 'afini fi basori [O Allah! Strengthen my sight]
p/s: Maktam, I love Ainul's pictures with the Palestinian scarf! Get her a placard and organize a peaceful demonstration at her school! =)
