One week in hospital to reflect on life




SALAM all! Alhamdulillah I'm up and about after spending one week in a hospital immediately after the Umno general assembly. I stayed in bed for two days after taking some cough and fever medications. But n the third day, my good family GP referred me to a nearby hospital where I was duly warded. It was a first time experience for me. The good doctors at the hospital gave me more medications for my fever and cough. Very soon I was on the mend. It was quite a week actually. My son was warded a day after me for a minor surgery. One of my younger brothers was also warded on the same day for observation after complaining of pain in his back. It was a family affair for a week for all of us, with nasi lemak breakfast for a couple of days. We were all discharged at the weekend but I was told to rest till I'm fully recovered. In the two weeks I was in sick bay, I missed DS Najib's maiden budget presentation in parliament; the criminalise war conference where I had earlier agreed to share my experience in Gaza (my apologies to the organisers) and several other meetings and engagements. But I did managed to lend a hand to Yayasan Salam volunteers on Friday at the end of their work camp. In the middle of the week, I lost a dear aunt who had been hiding her weak heart until it failed her six months after her pension. Life's like that. You win some, you lose some.I want to thank friends and colleagues who sent 'et well soon' text messages in the last two week or so. I appreciate it very much.

Tuanku, teruskan perjuangan.
Cuma satu nasihat: Janganlah tengok luar tingkap tu selalu - boleh demam tengok trafik jam!
Best wishes.

Anon 3:02,

Pahit Manis tak hisap rokok lagi dah. Berenti lama.

Welcome back, bro! I have also been down with f & f (fever and flu) the past week. Some virus or something, powerful one too. Had to pull out of a trip to Seoul. Supposed to fly out a few minutes ago.

Yes, health is wealth. Problem is, wealth pun tak ade ... Hehe. Take care, man.

I quarrantined myself in my house for 4 days, after spreading it to friends for almost 3 days.

Good to have you back up and running again Sir. Didn't know you were down though noticed you haven't updated your blog for a while.

Ease up on the Rajoo's...if you frequent there. Take care of your food intake..so says a man who needs to take his own advice.

I wouldn't have guessed. Anyway, good to know you are well again.

Read your piece on that Ulu place in Pahang, so there was no reason to think that you are 'down'.

But I agree.. life's like that. With highs and lows.

I have always enjoyed your write-ups on the 'untrodden paths' and your perspectives on small things that matters.. Please do keep it up amidst the very serious issues that needs your attention.

Good health.
