Abah start sakit on 23rd November 2010 (monday)... dapat call very early in the morning from aunt (my step mum)... masa mula2 abah masuk hospital segamat, kena masuk ICU disebabkan 1st class penuh. biasala kalau hospital kecik memang tak byk bilik first class, so Dr Aman (pengarah Hospital Segamat) suggest abah masuk ICU supaya dapat extra care from nurses... masa ni abah cuma demam n ada jangkitan paru2.
on tuesday, we've deciced to bring abah to Hospital Ampang Puteri due to few reasons :-
1) setiap kali abah sakit dia akan dapat kan rawatan kat APSH therefore we believe he should be treated there.
2) lack of specialist in Hospital Segamat
3) privacy , sebab masa kat Hospital Segamat terlalu ramai visitors so abah tak dpt fully rest.
Dr bagitau in order for him to be transfered to APSH, abah perlu diberi suntikan morphin and on breating support machine, been transfered to APSH by ambulance with a medical team including doctor accompanied him. Aunt was in the ambulance with us, while us all the children konvoi naik 3 kereta to KL. we thought abah will be hospitalized at most for 1 week.
arrived in KL, all specialist already standby to receive him. Among are Dato' Dr Rani, Dr Zaki, Dr Shina, Dr Ray, Dr Ismail and Dr Wahab. All are specialist... Abah been placed in ICU room... and our fear start on these day... as abah tak sedar langsung, doctors classified him as "Semi Coma". Semi coma because they are not sure why he is not awake; either due to the morphine given or because of brain damage... we were terrified and scared... we worry about him...
Doctors discovered that abah had kidney failure, brain damage which is due to lack of oxygen, diabetes, high fever, lung infection... kami semua risau betul... we start recites Yassin and ayat2 suci Al-Quran, sometimes kelopak mata abah ada berkelip sikit, kadang2 ada gerakan yg agak kuat, tangan bergerak and many things... after few days in "Semi Coma" stage, abah open his eyes and awake... we were happy with the progress but in the same time very worry... I classified his stage at the moment as "Awake but not conscious". he only recognize certain people, there are 1 time abah said to me "sempat awak dtg?" and i did replied him "setiap hari ada kat sini abah".... other than that, he will only look around and be silent. we never stop praying... praying for the best.
after few days, doctor informed us abah kena buat kidney dialysis, abah was very weak but still awake... he cant eat so doctor put tube for him to consume water and milk. i did called Ustaz nasir from darul Syifa twice. Ustaz said "doa kan yang terbaik untuk dia". we were really sad. it seems that we understand he will be leaving us soon, but we never stop hoping and praying. hari terakhir abah masih boleh buka mata, abah macam susah nak bernafas, and on the next day abah coma again.
kali ni coma dr ckp abah ada blood infection pulak. and he has been placed in an isolation room, and we cant be next to his bed. we can only see him from the glass door, but it dont stop us from keep recite yassin, dapat baca kat depan pintu kaca and dapat tengok abah dari jauh pun jadi la...
16th december 2010 - i went to office in the morning, btw i thankful to my bosses (en azmi and en rahimi) for allowing me to work remotely during those period; i received sms from adik saying that doctor would like to see all of us. I straight away packed my things and went to the hospital. nothing happened but doctor already stop the dialysis and informed all of us to be gtahered at the hospital. @ 8.30pm, doctor jumpa kami semua and bagitau abah's condition is critical and informed us that they will conduct another brain wave test on the next day. We went out for dinner @ 9.30pm. and around 10.30pm - 11pm, dr called us again to gather at hospital... dr informed us not to leave the hospital tonight as abah's condition sgt teruk.
11pm - a real final battle for us.... doctor allowed us to be next to abah's bed... only his wife, all children and son inlaws and my mum were allowed. since abah had infected with a dangerous virus, kami semua kena pakai thick mask, cap, baju yg macam apron plastic and glove. we went in with tears and recited yassin twice... after almost 1 hour doctor adjourned all of us and only allow my step mum to stay as doctor afraid we might get infected by the virus.
after half hour like that, we went in again and 5 minutes later Dr Ismail announced that he is dead at 1.10am on very early friday morning. kami sangat2 sedih but we were actually prepared for the worst. as abah already in a critical condition since 25days ago, we were really redha.
Thanks to PM when he instructed Uncle Tengku Adnan to handle urusan mandi jenazah at Masjid Ampang Tasik... Everything was very smooth... at 4am in the morning, more than 40 people had solat jenazah for him at Masjid Ampang Tasik. and after that we straight away back to Labis for another 2 times solat jenazah and majlis pengebumian.
during abah's tenure, abah ada bagikan peruntukan untuk bina masjid di labis, and kebetualn hari perasmian masjid was hari yg abah meninggal. sepatutnya solat jumaat hari tersebut merupakan solat berjemaah kali pertama di masjid itu, tp abah dpt juga merasmikan masjid tu bila solat jenazah utk aruah merupakan solat jemaah pertama di masjid tersebut. it such a big and beautiful mosque, and many people touched by the way abah had actually 'officiate' the mosque.
abah macam dah tau dia nak pergi, he requested people untuk buat pagar baru di sekeliling kawasan kubur... and masa hari abah meninggal tu, almost 80% pagar dah siap... Alhamdulillah...
Abah selamat dikebumikan approximately around 11am, sebelum solat jumaat...
May Abah rest in peace.Semoga abah di tempatkan di kalangan yg beriman dan dikasihi Allah SWT. Definitely we will miss him...Al-Fatihah...
