THE DIVERSITY OF MY THOUGHTS

The Day Ariq Returned On The Road

In Cerebral Palsy, Family on December 29, 2008 at 4:57 pm

The first day of my annual New-Year-Day-Off has been meaningful for me since it marked the return of Ariq, our first son on the street after a week full of  skipping his daily walk therapy. As mentioned previously that he suddenly stopped walking outside without knowing what’s wrong. For about a week or so, the sight of his walking gear somehow irritated him and that had made us feel so sad. We couldn’t stop wondering what the cause was and when it would last. We assumed that he was just bored with his daily routine of never ending therapies and drills. We concluded that he was sick of them and that he was tired of all those stuff.

That day, Ariq just walked outside without any hesitation, he was eager to walk as usual, as if nothing had happened. Suddenly everything went back normal; my wife said that he must have been happy to have his dad around, to go with him along the way, accompanying him doing his daily drills. We were so glad since his having skipped therapies had made us worry.

That morning, Ariq started his walking therapy around 8.30 than we joined him at 9. He was around the block, near the park. He looked so happy and chattered endlessly along the way, singing various songs as well as reciting short surahs while doing the drills. The sight of his parents and brother approaching was somehow made him so excited. He kept on saying Alhamdulillah every time he looked at me. He looked as if he got the brand new spirit to carry on with the drills. He didn’t show any discomfort despite the blazing heat of the morning sun.

That day has been the best day for us since we could spend a whole day together. I hope that I could spend more quality time with my beloved family, my precious jewels. Hopefully Ariq walks soon so that we can go further and act wilder…Lol. Insya Allah 2009 will be much better year in every aspect including Ariq’s health.

  1. Meminjam kalimat dari Asma Nadia,
    Bersamamu, nak,
    Kulayari waktu
    Dan beninglah segala jiwa
    Dan pelangilah setiap kehampaan

    Dan bintang yang luruh di matamu
    Adalah lenteraku juga menuju jalan-Nya…….

    For you and your wife, two of the amazing people, who got the blessing from Allah through you brave son….

    For Ariq, KEEP THE SMILE AND SPIRIT……..
