Malaysia : H1N1 survivor baby to grow up in large family

If you been reading my blog, you would noticed an article which I posted earlier this month. This report from The Star is in relation to that case:

" The baby girl who was delivered by Caesarean section even as her mother lay dying of Influenza A(H1N1) earlier this month is doing fine.

Baby Noralia Qalisyia Mustazah, who is 17 days old, is being looked after by her father Mustazah Sarmat’s family in Kampung Teluk Rimba near here.

Mustazah, 29, said his mother, Jamilah Lebar, asked him to bring the baby and his other three-year-old daughter, Noraina Batlisyia, from Malacca where he was living.

“My parents’ house has seven bedrooms. Several of my sisters and a sister-in-law are living in the house.

“There will always be people to look after my children.

“My first daughter also likes living here as there are many people in the house,” he said yesterday.

Mustazah, a lorry driver, said that although his wife Sumarni Mah Nor died, God gave him a beautiful daughter and he thanked the doctors at the Malacca Hospital for saving the baby.

Jamilah, 56, has 10 children and several of them are living with her along with their families.

She said Noralia Qalisyia would not be neglected.

She added that it was very tragic for Mustazah to have lost both his wife and his mother-in-law within three days.

However, Jamilah said life had to go on.

“We all will share our responsibility in looking after his children from now,” she said."
