Silver Lining

CT Scan Result

CT Taken On the 8th April 2009 at 1245pm

No lymphadenopathy or lesion found anywhere in the neck, axilla (armpit), chest or abdomen.

Previously when the diagnosis of Hodgkins was made in December 2008, CT Scan back then showed lymphadenopathy in the neck, axilla, mediastinum(chest), and spleen.


Specialist Nurse : I am really impressed with your response to treatment. The radiologist couldn't find any abnormality at all on your CT.

Me : Nothing at all?!

Specialist Nurse : Nope mas, nothing.

Me : Do you not get such a response that often for patients with Hodgkins?

Specialist Nurse : We know that patients with Hodgkins respond well to chemotherapy, but at this stage we usually can still see some lymphadenopathy or even detect scar lesions (due to the treatment) in the CT scan.

Me : Alhamdulillah, that really is a good news. So, does that warrant a reduction in the number of treatments for me? Just 10 rather than 12 doses maybe? (grinning)

Specialist Nurse : (Laughing) I'm sorry Mas, it doesn't. You still need to finish the whole cycle. Good try there. At least you should celebrate for this great news.

Mas : Well, thanks Helen. That definitely makes my day.


SubhanAllah. Alhamdulillah. Allahuakbar. O Allah, how indebted I am to your endless Mercy.

Antash shaafie. Laa shifaa-a illaa shifaa-uk. Shifaa-al laa yughaa diru saqamaa.

You are the only One who cures. There is no cure but Yours. Grant such (complete) cure that leaves no trace of illness. (Bukhaari and Muslim)

Assalamu`alaikum wm.

Alhamdulillah, syukur. Mama called a couple of days ago to inform me of the good news. Sebak rasa PakTam dengar berita gembira tu. Insya Allah, itu petunjuk Allah yang telah berikan rahmat kesembuhan pada Afzal. Still, you need to endure the complete treatment & kami di sini doakan semoga Afzal akan melaluinya dengan semangat yang lebih kuat.

Take good care.

Alhamdulillah syukur..

Juz to share with you:

The will of ALLAH will never take you where the grace of ALLAH will not protect you..

When Allah takes something from your grasp, He is noT punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better!

take care..
