let's pray for this little boy....




a friend of mine who is also Jihan's school principle (The Little Caliph Bandar Seri Putra), delivered a baby boy about 4 months ago... but it's not always sunny out there, her baby was diagnosed with a heart condition called Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), or in other word "a hole in heart"...




he was born with the weight of 3.0kg but already showed symptoms of heart failure at early age such as, rapid breathing, very breathless and excessive sweating when feeding, bluish discolouration of his lips and fingers when crying (cyanosis) and did not gain weight satisfactorily....in fact when he was first admitted to the hospital, his weight reduced to 2.6kg....




he was given antifailure medications and was nursed in the hospital for quite some time before discharged home...he was fed via Ryle's tube (feeding tube through the nose) so that he won't become tired if fed through normal route (sucking)...




unfortunately, he was again admitted to the hospital for heart failure symptoms and stayed there until transferred recently to IJN for a heart surgery....




today, as scheduled, this baby boy through a major operation to close the hole in his heart so that he will regain his normal physiological function of his heart and grow up healthily....




let's pray for the safety of this baby, Taib Muhammad Nafis and his family, so that Allah will give them the strength that they need at this point of time...
