His second hospital trip

 

As explained previously, Ariq had been hospitalized twice due to his fever and vomiting. Unlike his first hospital sleep-over, the second hospital trip was accompanied by seizure. It was a couple of weeks after Eid ul Fitr 2010 when this happened. That afternoon, I went out with my wife and my younger brother on a double date to Gandaria City. We went home around 7pm and parted near Lebak Bulus soccer stadium where my wife took a taxi home while I continued the drive to my mom’s house, my brother dropped me off there. I remember asking my wife to join me but she refused because she preferred to go home, she said that she felt bad for leaving them too long.

Baraka Badr Al-Din

Baraka, our second son, was born on February 9th 2008. We thanked Allah SWT that he was born healthy and handsome. We didn’t actually plan to have another baby in regards to the fact that our first son, Muhammad Ariq Azzarel was born with cerebral palsy due to lack of oxygen. We fully blamed ourselves for being ignorant during pregnancy, well, not totally ignorant actually. Both of us really paid attention in terms of nutrition, vitamins, medicines and so on. We really followed what the Gynecologist told us. Later on we learned that we’re not supposed to ‘swallow’ any pieces of advice. We should’ve asked for others’ opinions and all those sort of things. More stories about Ariq can be found here.
