My phone rang yesterday morning whilst at work and I saw mum's number. When answered, I heard her hoarse voice. She told me that she'd fever then and had not been feeling well for the past couple of days.
My first thought was to take leave to go home. Asked her if she needed me to do so but she said she just wanted to tell me, but I didn't need to come home.
Called my sister immediately and she said the same, for me to stay in KL..but still, I was worried, checked for available ticket just in case they said ok.
Followed up with her status few times since then and again early this morning when she sounded a little bit better..but I was still contemplating about going back home for few days and at the office checked again for a ticket to go home.
But then around 2.50pm today, received a call and I heard a "chirpy" sound, "Assalamualaikum!"..and her laugh.....she said she's much better now after much needed sleep and rest.
"Alhamdulillah"...and my eyes were slightly watery...hehe..
"No, you don't need to come home even thou I'd love to have you here", she said when I told her my plan.
This evening's phone call also confirmed that she's on her way to recovery. :-)
I know I'm a worrier..much more since what had happened to our family member mid-last year, it was a tough time for me and the rest of the family..now I could easily feel sad and wistful especially when any of my close family fall sick.
Okayyy..., so I'm staying here for the weekend but looking forward to my next scheduled trip home next month.
Praying for my mother's good health and may she be blessed always..amiin.
"LOVE YOU" mak.
From your daughter,
