Alhamdulillah, after 6 days in the ICU, Ummi was transferred to the High Dependency Ward (HDW). And after only 1 day there, Ummi is now in the Medical Ward.

She has improved quite a lot in these few days, Alhamdulillah. Yesterday when I went to see her at the HDW, the first thing she said to me was, “Esok Ummi boleh balik dah”. Which was not true, of course. She was a little delusional yesterday. A bit ‘high’ lah. But the doctor said, it was nothing to be worried about, as it may be the effect of the medications. And this morning, Akak said she is no more delusional. Alhamdulillah.

Having said that, we’re still being cautious about the whole thing. The doctor yesterday said that Ummi has to be on this particular antibiotics (Fortum, if I’m not mistaken), for at least another 6 weeks! And this antibiotics can only be given via intravenous, so that means it’s going to be at least another 6 weeks of hospital stay!! We haven’t told her about the 6 weeks though. We’re afraid it might upset her (who wouldn’t be?). 6 weeks is a long time. It will most probably be Eid then. But as long as she is improving, and pain free, we’re grateful.

It’s hard (for me) to explain what Ummi is ill from. They were so many diagnosis, we can hardly keep up.

When we were in KPMC, the doctor mentioned: Pneumonia, lung infection, liver abscess and gall stones.

In HUKM, doctors mentioned: lung infection, gall stones (they did ERCP and did something about it), liver abscess, liver cirrhosis and finally melioidosis (after the operation).

I think I may have forgotten 1 or 2. Byk sgt.

But anyway, I'd like to thank everybody who has joined us in our do'a for Ummi's recovery. It means a lot to us. We still have a long way to go and we will (of course) keep on praying. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
