Hanan is 75 days old today...Allahu Akbar!

I went to visit my baby last night in the NICU. She's now 4lbs and 6oz. Masha'Allah. This is a huge improvement. For those who don't know, her humble beginnings weighed in at 1lb and 5oz. Honestly, when she was born i didn't expect her to survive. I made constant du'a to Allah b4, during and after my emergency C-section to keep her alive, healthy and most importantly keep her a pious Amatullah. Yet i kept remembering that Allah knows best and whatever the outcome i had to be ready to accept it. I even had a difficult time getting attached to her because i know the pain of losing a baby and i was preparing myself for the worst. But since then she and I have both made progress and are bonding quite well. Allah is Most Merciful. She's out of the incubator now! She still has the airflow going in her nose (as you can see) and her bottle feedings are progressing but she still needs the tube feedings to supplement. Her due date was November 14th. I hope to post a picture of her AT HOME around then, insha Allah.

Please remember her in your prayers

MashaAllah, a beautiful baby. May Allah heal her, make her grow and thrive, inshaAllah. It must take a great deal of patience to have kids at home and one in the NICU. Allah chose you for a reason; we all have our various tests in this life, don't we?
After the hardship comes the ease inshaAllah.
