My Wife's Illness Is Slowly Killing Her, Without Help, I'll Lose Her

“When Aqsa was pregnant with our child, I was very afraid thinking that the pregnancy might complicate her medical condition. But she was determined to have this baby. She said the birth of a baby will bring back happiness to our lives. Shair’s birth indeed changed everything but Aqsa’s health wasn’t getting any better, her kidneys are damaged. She hardly got any time to spend with our daughter. But she hasn’t lost hope. She wants to live and wants to live for us. I want to try everything in my hands to help my wife get better.” - Mustaqin, husband of 25-year-old Aqsa. 

The young couple has been married for more than two years and Aqsa has been falling sick often

Just after she was married, Aqsa was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Both her kidneys are damaged, and she needs to be on dialysis thrice a week. Because of the catheter placement during the dialysis, vessels and tissues near her heart and her brain have experienced a lot of injury and swelling. 

This has resulted in thickening of the wall of the blood vessels; formation of excess fibrous connective tissue and also of lumps in the blood vessels. The regular function of the vessels was hampered and fluid accumulated in Aqsa’s chest. She suffered from severe breathing problem and the fluid had to be taken out of her chest but this keeps on recurring. The doctors have told Mustaqin that only a surgery can save Aqsa and without that her condition will only get aggravated and turn fatal too.

Mustaqin spends a hectic day taking care of everything but still tries and finds some time to spend with his wife

Life hasn’t been easy for Mustaqin after his wife was diagnosed with these complications. But he has taken everything in his stride and has decided to fight the battle with Aqsa, hand-in-hand.
 
“When we got married, both of us had vowed to each other to be with one another in times of difficulty and pain. I know she would have never left me and neither will I. Each morning, I wake up at 5, make tea for Aqsa and myself and have it together. This has been our routine since our marriage, I don’t want it to break it. I prepare the food for my baby and Aqsa and leave for work. All day long, I keep worrying about them. I go back home as soon as possible after I finish my work. It is hectic and at the end of the day, I get very tired. But if all of this is going to make Aqsa better I am willingdo this every day.” 

He has left no stone unturned to make Aqsa better even then he is unable to afford the surgery that can save his wife

Mustaqin is the sole breadwinner and has been taking care of his wife and his 1-year-old daughter all by himself. He works as a salesman in a mall and earns around Rs 10,000 per month. His salary is in no way adequate to afford the surgery that can make Aqsa better.

“Aqsa has a lot of faith in Allah, she says that if you pray with a pure heart God will always answer to the prayers. All I pray for is that I can spend my entire life with my wife and child. I have already spent 12 lakhs on her treatment, I don’t know how I will arrange for another 6 lakhs for the surgery. As I sit beside Aqsa and look at her hopeful eyes, I simply wish that I don’t fail in my duties.”

How you can help

Mustaqin is trying very hard to save his 25-year-old young wife who needs an urgent surgery to get better. But he is struggling to arrange for the money for the treatment. Your kind help can help Mustaqin save his wife and get back his happy family.
