RUBELLA STRIKES!!

Abang is down with Rubella....on the very first day the school re-opens after a 2-week holidays. My poor darling boy...... He's covered from head to toe with angry red rashes. It started on the face and then rapidly spreaded to the trunk and limbs. We cannot be sure where did he get it. As the incubation period for this disease is 2 to 3 weeks, he might had contracted it from somebody way before school holidays.....and now, looks like Abang got himself another week of school holidays!!

Alhamdulilllah, regardless of the fever and itchiness, Abang is doing all what he's supposed to do. The five prayers, the daily qur'an recitation and hafadzan, the study and even his share of houseworks....I cannot help feeling proud seeing him doing all these.

Here's Abang, smiling, despite the discomfort.....





The rashes even got into his eyes and scalp too....but Abang is so patient, hardly scratching/complaining at all.



And here's Grey, faithfully accompanying Abang, in health and sickness.....

( she's wearing her new bow, a gift we brought home from our holidays to make up to her for leaving her ,
taken care of by our kind neighbour who is also madly in love with her, Makcik Zon...Grey, as usual, was upset to be left behind and rebelled by overeating.....result being, her tummy now touches the floor when she moves. Must put her on a strict diet......)





Well, Abang, just thank Allah that rubella strikes you in your young age, thus, minimal systemic upset. I got mine in my late twenties and had to suffer stiff joints for nearly a month , made worse by the notorious Scottish winter. As it is a self-limiting disease, Insya Allah, you'll be up and about in just a few days. Till then, enjoy your extended leaves!!

It is sad to see Habri like that. You must be worried sick about him although you are not saying anything like that. I hope he's getting better now. What a good kid he is to do all those good things while he's body is weak. I know of some older people who don't even pray although their sickness is rather minimal. I got a Rubella injection during my high school and I thought it is compulsory to everyone.

Ahlia Azhar,
Terima kasih datang ziarah...dan mengingatkan nikmat2 Allah...doa unt kami supaya dipilih keluar jauh2 mcm your hubby!


Kakchik,
He's getting better now and badly missing school and the masjid...Abah dia bagi 4 days MC to avoid infecting other peoples, tapi tadi adik balik dari sekolah,cakap dah ramai Abang's classmates yg kena. I think, Rubella vaccination was made compulsory to all babies born in 2002 and after( given at 1 year old). Zaman kita dulu, still optional...

Salam kak An, how's Abang been these days? May Allah grant him speedy recovery and elevate him in ranks.

Grey is exceptionally adorable with the purple bow ;)
