"Mama sick...blechhh!"

These are little "multi-cultural baby" cupcakes my sister made for my babyshower for Aaminah. Yeah old picture but just wanted to share the cuteness!

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll. Unfortunately I have been ill enough during Aaminah's short life that she understands (as much as she can) what it means to be sick.

A was trying to explain my absence to her (when I was hospitalized in February) and he told her, Mama sick. So cute, she comes up with, "mama sick...blech!" Complete with open mouth and bending forward. Masha'Allah.. she makes us laugh every time with that.

Alhamdulillah I was in the hospital again but just for a day this time. I was released today and got home in time to relieve A (he had Aaminah all day and then trying to keep up with 4 kids after the bigger ones returned home!) I have the same resistant infection I have been battling since October.

Sisters, please make dua for me. We are trying to find out why I keep getting this infection. This time it's just a UTI but a couple of times it's been full-blown pyleonephritis (a true-blue kidney infection). AND in my transplant kidney no less!

Alhamdulillah, all things happen for a reason. Please make du'a that Allah heals me and keeps me at home with my family where I am needed.

Ma salaama...

Salam sister. I'm sure you know more about it than me but I'm assuming you've had a vcug? Only reason I ask is cuz my daughter had a Wilms tumor a couple of years ago and had one of her kidney's removed. With the other kidney she has a grade 2 reflux and has had several bouts with resistant ecoli and pyelonephritis. She's on a prophalactic dose of Nitrofurantoin which so far has done the trick. Good luck! And may Allah grant you the best of health and iman ameen.

Salaam sis. They did the renal ultrasound today, pre and post void. They tried to put me on the macrobid prophylactically but I started getting pretty severe numbness in my extremities so the docs stopped it. Bam, infection back. I have to see a uro-gynecologist and see if I have some abnormality; insha'allah it'll be easy found, easy fixed. I will make dua for your family, that Allah gives you ease and comfort sis. Ameen.

Salaam sis Aneesah. My sister J is sooo creative masha'Allah. I loved how she tinted the cupcakes light brown to match Aaminah's mixed heritage. :-) She is a great big sister!

Ma salaama...
