Are we there yet?

There can be only one.
And that one used to be me.

Seven months ago my lil sister of DeGrouchyOwl fame was diagnosed with a time bomb in her head, AKA an inter cranial aneurysm.  In her brain.  Yeah. Really. I know right.  How rude.  Here I am being all dramatic and in mortal medical danger and she comes along with her upstart aneurysm to steal my medical thunder.  Cheeky McSqueaky.

So she has finally found a doctor that can  remember whether it’s the red wire or the blue wire, and on July 2nd, her head will be the scene of an exciting medical action adventure where he holds a pair of wirecutters and waits for an oversized LED countdown to reach 1 before snipping the right one.  InshaAllah, once the procedure is successful, Owlie-bird can ride off into the sunset, hand in hand with her on-screen love interest (AKA husband) so that the credits can roll and we can all live happily ever after.  InshaAllah.

In other family news, Musfira has now turned free.  Khalid said he felt like a velociraptor, and Iman hosted a ladies only dance party with daff-only nasheed today.  By ladies only, I mean I was the only lady.  Iman and Musfira were there too.  We beat on an upside-down pencil box and Iman twirled in the ambient glow of the night-light. It was fun.

HF’s busy winning medals to hang around his Husband of The Year trophy.  I sprained my left wrist doing pretty much nothing, and since my hand is in a brace, he’s taken over nearly all the housework and even most of the cooking, MashaAllah.  He makes awesome nihari.  ***heart***
