Assalaamu Alaikum / Hi
I know there’s tons of messages left unreplied during this past 1 week…
Health did not permit due to many reasons & unforeseen circumstances..
Not because I’m negative.
We become really exasperated receiving positive lectures from people who have no idea regarding the reality of the matter.
If we were not positive… Our lives would not have been fruitful like it is despite ongoing challenges.
A piece of wisdom from the lips of a great scholar
To fully understand the next 2 important updates everyone is awaiting. It is necessary to first understand the following;
Lungs: Each of the pair of organs situated within the rib cage, consisting of elastic sacs with branching passages into which air is drawn, so that oxygen can pass into the blood & carbon dioxide be removed.
Main passage airways are called bronchi. Once they become smaller & closer to lung tissue they’re called bronchioles which then evolve into air sacs called alveoli where oxygen & carbon dioxide exchange in the respiratory system.
Now what happens when there are “sounds” heard with a stethoscope?
What happens if excess fluid is retained in the lungs?
Hypothesis: We expect that the lung with fluid won’t expand as much as a lung without fluid.
Pulmonary Edema occurs when the alveoli fills up with excess fluid seeps out of the blood vessels in the lungs instead of air. This can cause problems with exchange of gas (oxygen & carbon dioxide).
Edema, in general, means swelling. This typically occurs when fluid from inside blood vessels seeps outside the blood vessel into the surrounding tissues, causing swelling.
This can happen either because of too much pressure in the blood vessel or not enough proteins in the blood stream to hold onto the fluid in the plasma (the part of blood that does not contain any blood cells)
The cause of fluid in the lungs is Pulmonary Edema typically filled with alveoli in the lungs by fluid leaking of out of the blood. Pulmonary Edema may be caused by a number of cardiac or non-cardiac conditions. Breathing difficulty is the main manifestation of Pulmonary Edema.
Side effects are: Shortness of breath, dry cough, or wet, pain, inability to lie flat, inability to exercise & the feeling of heaviness & tightness in the chest.

And where is it suspected to fit in with me
Refresh the memory 👇
《 LUNG SOUNDS ARE OF 3 CATEGORIES 》
Heard during inspiration
Not cleared by cough
Course sounds / crackles – me
Like a snore
May clear with coughing. Yes.
Or suctioning (continous)
WHEEZE – In my case as well – detected yesterday.
Musical noise during inspiration / expiration
Usually louder during expiration
Have you paused just for a moment or two, to reflect over each breath given for free?
To jump in glee
Do as you please
Not a cent charged
Besides being asked
To fulfill our due part
On the illuminated path
Even though it may be hard
Endeavour to conquer
For success to be ours
At the deciding hour
“How are you”
“Alive & breathing. Praises to my Lord under all circumstances.”
Can I say I’m well? No, because I’m not, but continue expressing gratitude. Favors supercede these trials. We are also granted immense tools to deal with every condition in life 😊 which is a huge boon alone.
Summarizing my current condition in a crux version of 4 sentences:
The pathways I tread
Flimsy cotton threads
Unknown, which step
Will cause it to snap.
As feeble these threads are..
I’m extremely grateful for all the morals it has taught
Learning the very hard way to count your breaths to prevent going “short” which is inevitable even whilst trying to save….
Every abhorred deed, leaves;
❌ Minding other people’s affairs
❌ Interfering & “poking”
Not that I would take enjoyment in these things before, but now it’s something that doesn’t enter your mind in the least bit because you’re so occupied trying to utilise limited breaths in the most beneficial, necessary avenues possible…
They are too precious to be wasted on anything otherwise.
A common reality everywhere;
“What he’s doing?”
“Did you see how she’s living?”
Then envy sets in, not to mention the corruption created via 1 mouth to another.
When appreciating the breaths we’re blessed with, it’ll save us from getting caught in futile talk…
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow is not guaranteed
We only have today
Let us begin
