Very recently Hubby and I took leave to go back hometown.
2 months has past since the last we went back to visit my MIL. We tried to go back every month however meetings with contractor during weekends, exam around the corner for Jess Minn (you should know now my niece staying with us), my father recent cataract treatment and myself going for exam delays our travel till that long.. fuhh
There’s no good timing or bad timing for what we planned going back this last weekend was God giving us the chance to be able to see my MIL and be there for her when she needed us the most. We got back on Friday and my MIL was hospitalised for a series of virus infection that has spread all over her body. The doctor diagnosed her with pneumonia and she has difficulty to breath.
Everyone was there for her, All her children was back at hometown for the weekend, including grandchildren and we prayed hard for her to recover and for God to show mercy to her and not let her suffer – we are so helpless. I cried the moment I saw her on the hospital bed, my tears just rolling down and I can’t bear to see her in pain.
The doctor asked us to prepare for the worst. She manage to pull through on Friday and we are relieved for a while. On Saturday we had another scared from the nurse as they informed us that her Oxygen level has dropped and its not improving. Everyone cried and the eldest niece Jess Lynn cried the loudest. Its the first time I saw Hubby cry and I ask him “Are you crying?” both of us shedding tears and Hubby replied “sand got into his eyes” !!!

During the 3 days going back and forth to the hospital, I can’t help but looking at other patients. There’s this Makcik who was admitted on the same day as MIL, she was living on artificial respiration because the machine is providing her with breath/ oxygen. Both Hubby and I agreed that she has already passed on, the same night the doctor declared she’s dead.
Everywhere I look inside the ward, ailing patients struggling and in pain while the loves one looking on. Helpless and lost. Same happen to us, seeing the pain my MIL going through yet we can’t help her except to ask God to have Mercy on her and put her in the care of the doctor and nurses. Just wish and pray ..
We went to hospital ulang alik until Sunday and my MIL is still too weak to wake up when we call her and tell her we are heading back to KL. I wasn’t sure she is conscious or semi conscious but the medicines and antibiotics that the Dr gave her has showned sign of improvement on her and we are grateful and relieved.
Hope MIL will get well soon!! We’re going back aga
