Alhamdulillah! Masha'Allah! Allahu akbar!

Salaam ya'll! I am very pleased to announce that Cap'n and I have married. :-) Alhamdulillah! We had a wonderful time, I think we were both more than the other expected and both grateful to Allah for the love and understanding He has placed between us.

"And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your hearts. Undoubtedly in these are signs for those who reflect." [Noble Quran 30:21]

Masha'Allah. So this was my big secret, I just preferred to keep everything hush hush til it was a done deal, especially due to my health issues. Alhamdulillah I've been perfectly healthy (well for me that is! lol) the entire time I was away and now am back, sans husband. We are just waiting to be reunited and please all, make dua for us that we are together again soon.

This life is hard enough; going it alone makes it even tougher. :-)

Ma salaama!

Salaam ya'll! I'm still around, still sick, still struggling, still smiling, still sighing, still "subhanallah"ing. Started with an "s" theme and just decided to run with it. :-)

Anyway the transplant work-up is on hold until I lose 45 lbs. Yes you read right, 45 pounds. Ouch. Alhamdulillah. I know it's for my best interest but having surgery after surgery, week after week, is NOT in my best interest at all. I have already lost weight and am very very dedicated. I mean, we aren't talking about getting ready for swimsuit season, we are talking about my life. Insha'Allah khair...

Of course, with my illness and level of tiredness I can't exercise so it's really just diet. Please make du'a for me, sisters.

Now... I have a secret... and yeah, I hate hate hate hate HATE when people do a big tease on their blog but I'm so excited I wish I could share. Suffice it to say that in a couple of weeks I'll have a very very happy post to put up insha'Allah. :-) Insha'Allah I'll get loads of "masha'Allah"s and "mabrook"s. :-) I promise I'll update you guys in a couple of weeks. Until then, I will be VERY M.I.A. :-)

Please keep me and my family in your dua. I love you all fi sabilillah... Ma salaama!!!
