Salam alaikum sisters.
Alhamdulilah this past week has been full of tests. A week ago I had started getting a sharp pain in my lower right abdomen, it for sure wasn't afterbirth pains, especially with being 2 weeks postpartum by that time. So when my husband returned home from work, we packed the children up and went to the ER. We waited 4 hours to be seen! Finally they concluded, after various test, that I had appendicitis and in a few hours I would be operated on. Before operation they gave me an antibiotic which caused a severe allergic reaction, my mouth and tongue had begun to swell and I felt like one huge hive. Alhamdulilah, the surgery went well, and we found a friend of mine to watch the children while I was in the hospital that day. Alhamdulilah again that I had quite a bit of milk pumped and stored in the freezer as I could not breastfeed for 24 hours after the surgery due to the medications they gave me. They wanted me to stay night, but I insisted that they had to discharge me.
Alhamdulilah, Allah has blessed me with only a few friends, but wonderful friends that are always there for me when I need them. The sister who watched the children for me insisted I come back with them the next day to her house so she could help me tend to them and so I could rest. Then for the next 3 days another sister came to help me with Ahmad. Alhamdulilah, by the 5th day I was feeling much better and much like myself.
Now Hamoodi has caught a cold, inshallah Hamida will not catch it, she is still so young, only 3 weeks old.
Our washer machine also broke a few days after we came home with Hamida (2 1/2 weeks ago) inshallah it will finally be fixed by this Monday.
Inshallah all of you are well, I hope that one day I can be better at posting, but we are still adjusting to a new addition. With all the things that have been going on, hasn't made the adjustment any easier. Alhamdulilah for everything. :)
