A Decision Was Made ..

We met the doctor yesterday morning and the doctor said what he had to say about Aunt Yayah's condition and gave his advice. One of the things he said was Aunt Yayah's brain was injured due to stopping of heartbeat the other day. So clinically with the brain injured and looking at all other ailments that Aunt Yayah was suffering from, doctor doesnt see Aunt Yayah to live long.

We asked the doctor alot of questions. One of it was (though it sounds stupid) "how long after we pull out the oxygen tube will the patient live for?" The doctor replied it could be minutes after, hours or even days. Well yeah, doctor's not Allah!

Faiz, aunt's son, decided to make a decision. I gave him my advice and reminded him not to be influenced by it. Even another cousin gave his thoughts. I knew it would be ultra hard for him .. this is his mother we are talking about and this is a matter of life and death.

He did not give his last say to me but he said we will just call relatives to visit mum and we did. I started calling close relatives over to see Aunt.

At about 4.30pm, he went in to see the doctor (w/o even my knowledge)and informed the doctor that he had decided to pull the oxygen tube that has been supporting his mum since last Thursday. It is not that Faiz wants to see his mum go, but he had done so because he did not want to see his mum suffer.

So relatives started to come and visit and at 5.30 pm the nurses took the oxygen tube out.

Aunt is still strong and she is still surviving when we left just now! Alhamdulillah!
