Someone is reciting the quran this morning. A tragedy happened yesterday. Someone is going to be buried this morning and what is tragic is that that someone is Sophia and Dahlia's teacher and I JUST talked to her last Friday.
I had to go to the school on Friday, to fetch Sophia back from school, and then send her back with her bag. She had camping at Ulu Langat . All the prefects of the school. She kept nagging me the night before to get her stuff to pack. We thought we'd take her back first to mandi then send her back to school.
But when I reached the school, the kids were allready waiting to get in the bus- there were two buses waiting. I panicked and called for Sophia, and she said she had to go NOW. I found the teacher, Teacher Nurmardhiah and told her that Sophia's bag was still at home. She was a bit flustered and told me to go back to get it, and hurry!
I pun hurried as best as I could considering that it was Friday and there was a bit of a jam. I grabbed the bag and went back to school and found teacher Nurmardhiah again, still flustered and organising the kids to get into the buses. She taught Sophia Maths and Dahlia English. I wished her goodluck and to have fun. I said boy are you going to need the luck, with all the kids to supervise! I salam her again on the way out from the school.
The next day, Nadine had to go to FRIM pulak with her school - she came back telling me that her friend got an sms to say that a teacher passed away at the camp. And it was Teacher Nurmardhiah!
I called another teacher- it seemed that T. Nurmardhiah had a severe ASTHMA attack at noon on Saturday while taking part in the activities. She wanted to do everything and had to sort out EVERYTHING, I was told by this stressed teacher. Her inhaler was in her bag and she could not get to it on time. By the time she got medical help it was too late.
Sophia came back much earlier than planned of course. I thought that she might be traumatised but she seemed ok if a bit subdued. Dahlia said she was such a fun teacher.
Alfatihah..Takziah to her family. I could not sleep until 4 am last night . Such a preventable passing. But Allah knows best. And it must be her time.
I tak tau asthma can still be fatal ye?
