Abah had his first hair cut in almost three months

This morning started with Abah went to Damansara Specialist Hospital, right after breakfast, like every morning, by the Koi pond. We arrived at 10.00am to find cardiothoracic surgeon Mr. Syed Mohamed Adib already waiting for him. Tan Sri Mr. Yahya wanted Mr. Syed Adib to look at Abah's wound and give an independent assessment on the progress.

So he did exactly that. The young surgeon was satisfied with the progress and he is of the opinion that in a few days time, the use of antibiotic gel Elase should be changed.

Right after that, he popped by to see my sister, who is supposed to go and do MRI, for her facial pains, due to Bell's Palsy. It is a nerve ailment.

After I settled the bill for this morning, I offered to take Abah to Rahman's in Section 16 Petaling Jaya, for a hair cut. He gladly accepted. Its his first haircut in almost three months (since Ramadhan). As far as I can remember, this barber shop has been cutting my hair ever since I had hair (since the late sixties!).

Aishah had her hair shaven after the "cukur jambul", when she was three months old here, here at this shop. The barber then, Pakcik Rahman, the same guy who have been cutting Abah's and my hair, is no longer with us. He died few years ago, because of stroke.

Looks like your old man is up and about. You'be been a good son, bro'. Something I would never be. But it's nice of you to blog about this as a lesson for lesser souls (me!). Take care and have a Happy New Year with your family. Hope 2008 would bring much prosperity and health to you and your family. Amin.

Abang, Ahmad F Osman and Danny the Wheeler,

Thanks guys!

Yes, any son would do the same. I was just trying to make him as comfortable as it possibly can, in these most trying times.

May Allah bless all of us. May 2008 be a good year for us too!
