I just wanted to stop by and say thank you and jazakillahu kulla khayr to everyone that has left comments and messages for me about my uncle. Yesterday, the doctors said that both his kidneys have failed and that he will have to be on long term dialysis. I spoke to him yesterday and tried to tell him all the things I wanted him to know, that I miss him, that I always loved going to his home and feeling the warmth, that he always makes me feel better, that any sufferring will in sha Allah be recompensed. It's hard being far away. Alhamdulillah my Mum flew over and got to London this morning. She is at the hospital now. They are still waiting to transfer him from Harrow to a kidney specialist in Hammersmith. He hasn't had things easy in life, but nevertheless remained jolly and friendly all the time. That oil painting is one of his that is hanging in my parents' home! He is a very creative, talented soul who always brings a smile (and usually a giggle) to everyone's face ma sha Allah.
