Bapak Is "More Stable...."

I owe my friends in and outside blogosphere an apology for not posting about Bapak having been admitted to Pantai Medical Centre yesterday.

Firstly, because I didn't have time, and secondly, I felt I did not want to alarm people, including our friends ....

I was in Penang yesterday when my sister called me to say that Bapak had breathing difficulty and was rushed to the hospital.

I took the next available flight to KL.

My step-mum was with Bapak when she noticed that he had difficulty breathing.
She alerted my sisters -- Kak Ton, Kak Olin and Nina.

They quickly called an ambulance.

They were all so distraught because by the time the ambulance came, Bapak's eyes were already almost rolling up.

The doctor at Pantai Medical Centre told Kak Olin that any later and Bapak would have not made it.

Bapak had some fluid in his lungs which he could not cough out.

He was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where he was given sedation in order to stabilize his condition.

His doctor, Dr Ridzwan Abu Bakar told me today that Bapak's condition is "more stable" and he is slowly being taken off the sedation.

But he is not out of the woods yet. We pray for his recovery, Inshallah.

Thank you, friends, for your concern and well wishes.

And thank you Rocky and Ashraf for publishing a posting on Bapak.

Nuraina,

Be strong and hope Bapak will be well soon.

Sorry, being a chinese I am not sure how to express myself fearing that in turn it can be offending to your religion.

Sis, perhaps it is a good time to leave the world outside and just be around him. I wished that is what I did when I still have the chance.

Be strong.
