Sorry ya'll

Salaam everyone. So I want to apologize for my lack of posts of substance. My life is consumed right now with staying alive. I had another surgery yesterday and had a semi-permanent access placed in my thigh. It's very very painful alhamdulillah and it's hard to get around.

However, for the first time in 3 weeks, I dialyzed completely. Alhamdulillah! I had been getting very sick from all the toxins building up so insha'Allah this SIXTH access will work and I can concentrate . on getting better again.

Alhamdulillah I have had around 17 people offer to be tested. Some complete strangers AND get this, non-Muslim. Subhanallah how Allah moves people! So I don't wanna hear from anyone, myself included, that America anti-Muslim. Yes, our government has policies in place that definitely support Islamaphobia but that does not reflect the feelings of most people on an individual level.

Anyway I have had thoughts for interesting posts but to be honest, I just don't have the energy. So bear with me and insha'Allah better days are coming. :-)

Oh alhamdulillah a friend gave Aaminah a kitten. This has been her heart's desire for a year and I just wanted to let her have something to make her happier. It's hard on her, having a sick mama and she is so excited to have him. Let me introduce Maximus the Catticus, or Max for short. :-)

He's a Maine Coon and can grow to 25 lbs subhanallah!

He's very active but I can't get pictures of that hence 2 pics lying down. :-)

Ma salaama ya'll!

Alhumdulilah your dialysis did it completely. That's really good.

Inshallah you'll find a donor match, I'm of the wrong blood type, I'm a negative blood type.
I think it's wonderful that non-Muslims have offered to be tested. I agree, the anti Muslim sentiment is NOT how most people feel. There are some who feel that way, but I think they're a minority in the general public. I think most people aren't like that.

I love the kitten, sooo cute, mashallah. I have a Maine Coon and he is the sweetest, most gentle cat I've ever known.

Salaam sis. So happy to know you have a sweet-tempered Maine. That what we were wanting! :-)

Sweetie I'm so sorry you yet continue to go through such hard times. I think of you a lot and i am happy to hear an update.

Maine Coon cats are the best! My aunt has one and it is the most lovely cat you could ever hope to have although it is larger than my 9 month old baby which is kind of creepy...

Bonnie, you are right about how big they can get and it being weird. Thankfully he has a great disposition, otherwise it would totally freak me out. :-)
