Subhana Allah, so many things to make right. I mean, I just realized that my life is so much in mess, so I need a lot of cleaning up to do. I wonder if there is enough time for me. Time is running out, girl!
It's the second week of school holiday here. We're at home, the most perfect place for a great holiday. It's fantastic, relaxing and not having to rush to and from school every morning and afternoon. Alhamdulillah!
Before the school holiday, I met with Mujhee's physio and we discussed about her Piedro boots and AFO's. It has been almost a year since Mujhee's hasn't worn her Ankle and foot Orthosis, AFO's and wearing the boots instead. She's been wearing her Piedro boots for almost 2 years now. She likes the boot. It's comfortable for her. She is quite good with the boots. The boots hold her foot and ankles in the correct position and she is happy standing with them on. We had to think about getting her a new pair of Piedro, because her feet has grown.
She is not an AFO's fan. She hates wearing them. She would only stand for a short while with them on and she easily gets stiff when she wears them. Her physio said that maybe we could get the boots now and then down the track we could get her the AFO's. So I thought we'll just get her a new boots rather than the AFO's right now.
Mean while, I asked around for advice. Most of them didn't really know which one is good for Mujhee. But her peadiatritian said that she needs both of them. The AFO's actually could stretch the calf where the boots couldn't.
Talking about running out of time, last Thursday I planed to take Mujhee to the shoe shop after her 2:30 pm chiropractor appointment. The appointment usually doesn't take long but the waiting does. Alhamdulillah, since we take her here, her hips and muscles improved. Read about Countless blessing, her hips are normal here. That night I made dua, that Allah will make it better so we could have enough time to get the Perth Surgical Shoemakers before it closes at 4 pm.
At the time, I told Mujhee's chiro that she is still struggling with her sleep, he advised us to give her dark chocolate before bed time for snack. He said that dark chocolate contain serotonin, a chemical in the brain that helps keep our mood under control and helps with sleep.
It was 3 pm when we leave the chiropractor clinic. It took us 30 minutes to get to the shoe shop. I was so grateful that my dua was answered when we finally reached at the shop and it was still open. Alhamdulillah! The plan was to do the fitting, then we would have placed an order. Then we would have to wait for 6 weeks to get the shoes. We decided to get the navy blue stability piedro boot in size 28. These boots are really helpful for heel and ankle support. It keeps the feet in a good position.
It was about 4 pm when we got done with the fitting and ordering. On our way to the parking, the lady who served us came and asked if we want to take the black one right away so we don't have to wait for 6 weeks. So I was thinking, subhana Allah, another fantastic plan from Allah for us that day. Alhamdulillah, Mujhee got the new boots that very day.
On our way home we stopped by at a playgroup to reward the girls for the extremely good behaviour and making my day easier.
When we leave our matter to be taken care of to the Almighty God and truly believe that He knows better, it make life so much easier and better.
