I have a niece and her name is Siti Maisara. She’s 3 years old, the same age as Alya, my own daughter. She had a little fever and a flue during previous Hari Raya. However, if I’m not mistaken, a week after that, she was admitted to Hospital Besar Seremban and hospitalised in the intensive care unit (ICU). She could not breathe on her own and need oxygen assistance. It was suspected that she was attacked by some kind of virus and her lungs and spinal cord were effected. Apparently her lungs can’t expand properly and her spinal cord is swollen. Now she cannot move her whole body……
Last 3 weeks, she was transferred to Hospital Besar Kuala Lumpur under the pediatric department ICU. The doctors have done almost everything to recover her from her illness. Now, she has to breath thru a tube, connecting to an incision on her throat, with an oxygen machine. The doctors also have declared that she will be paralyzed her whole life. It breaks my heart to hear that..It is very sad to see her in this state….. But of course we’re not giving up and take in the doctors’ words wholly. We’ll try alternative medication and hope that Maisara will recover. Me and my wife have visited Maisara and her family twice in both hospitals and we’re extremely sad to see her conditions. I felt like crying…
Her parents now have to stay in the hospital day and night..it has been almost two months. The father has filled an application form to buy the oxygen machine, to facilitate her daughter when she’s allowed to go home. It cost RM30,000….and it’s not even certain whether he’s gonna get it. Their living expenses also fluctuates and not predictable anymore…no more normal lifestyle for them. This Aidiladha…they have to be by her side in the hospital…which parents would leave the child’s side in this condition?
This photo was taken in Hospital Besar Kuala Lumpur when she was awake but still cannot move and cannot talk.
The father couldn’t quit his job for who will bring in the money for them, but to work peacefully I believe is very hard to do for him. Just be strong brother….I hope he will always manage to get many sales secured (he’s a car salesman, you can visit the car website that I made for him early October 2008).

Together we pray for her to get well again….
Allah will repay us in His own ways… InsyaAllah.
