I would say, it was a very challenging start for the year 2011. It was not a very good start anyway for me and my little family. But it was not totally bad at all. At least there were few things really brought cheers to me.

In January alone, I took 3 days medical leave. I hardly get fever, but once I had it.. it will take quite long to recover. The bad part is, sinus. It's getting worst. I can't sleep at night. Even if I can sleep, I had to sit while sleeping. I can easily get stressed. Even by the blocked nose.

There were times, I took a walk, outside of my house at 2 or 3 a.m!!! I just couldn't stay in the house. As if something was pushing me out of the house. Creepy eh??

It was not all. Ilyas fell of the bed. Head first. It was 10 p.m. So we had to rush to Putrajaya Hospital. I was crying until I got to the emergency department. We waited for about one hour to see doctor. While waiting, Ilyas started to be himself again. He was very active and cheerful. Even more cheerful when we got to see the doctor. Alhamdulillah. Everything was ok. But the doctor asked us to monitor Ilyas for about 24 hours, and if during observation, he vomits at least 3 times, then we had to bring him back to the hospital. Alhamdulillah, Ilyas is ok.

Exactly one week later, I had to visit the emergency room again. This time, my husband. Not very critical, but he needs to do one minor surgery. And since it was not really an emergency, we had to wait for more than 4 hours to see the doctor. I'm not complaining though. Luckily Kak Shikin is willing to take care of Ilyas that night. So another two days off for me to assist my husband with the hospitalization procedures.

One after another. As I was heading to my workplace, the car brokedown!!! In the middle of MEX highway!!! Subhanallah.. Lucky enough, I had Etiqa auto assist phone no in my handbag. So I called them up to arrange the pick-up truck. And lucky enough, my SIL's Kancil is available, so I had to use her car for 2-3 days.

And now, Alhamdulillah... things getting better and better. My sinus also getting better. At least I can sleep quite well. It's not bad luck after all. I take it as challenge from Allah. May be He will grant me something, and of course I must pass all His tests first. I feel better and stronger now. Thank you Allah, and thanks to my husband for his support and not forgetting my other family members.
