It gets closer

Have you ever visited a person so sick that you can almost see his life fading away minute by minute. You leave there feeling helpless when you know there’s nothing you or anyone can do. It’s all in the hands of God. Just like everything always is. But does it make you think that regardless if you wanted or not you are getting closer to death minute by minute too. That I myself and all the people I love are going to die one day. Does it scare you? It does scare me and because of many reasons.

I went to visit my patient in ICU the other day. She was on Aminophylline, a drug to help her breathe easier. She looked frail, only depending on the machines to hold on to life. It struck me that it's times like these when sickness and death both become so realistical that it like pushes you back to reality.

A few days later, she passed away. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. Surely we belong to God and to Him shall we return. Al Fatihah.
