Musfira Zafar Iqbal's Story
Musfira was a one-year-old girl from Okara who faced health challenges from the moment she was born. She had difficulty breathing, her skin turned bluish, and she struggled to gain weight. Her parents only discovered her condition recently and decided to take her to a local hospital for help. After running some tests, the doctor gave them a heartbreaking diagnosis: Musfira had a congenital heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). The doctor explained that Musfira needed open-heart surgery to correct the heart defect.
With heavy hearts, Musfira’s parents admitted her to the University of Lahore Teaching Hospital. They placed their hope in the hands of Dr. Salman, a skilled cardiac surgeon. On 28-8-2023, the day of the operation, emotions ran high as everyone anxiously waited for the surgery to begin. The goal was to give Musfira a chance at a healthy life.
The operation was successfully done and she was shifted to the Intensive care unit for close monitoring. After the surgery, the medical team worked hard to address the complexities of Musfira’s postoperative condition. They were dedicated to helping her overcome the challenges she faced. However, despite their best efforts and the care provided in the intensive care unit on 30-8-2023, Musfira’s fragile heart suddenly stopped beating, leading to a cardiac arrest.
Her passing left her family and loved ones in deep sorrow. The loss of such a young life was incredibly difficult to bear. Musfira’s parents were filled with grief, their hearts broken by the absence of their beloved daughter. They had hoped and prayed for her recovery, but sadly, it was not meant to be.
Musfira’s memory will forever hold a special place in the hearts of those who knew her. Though her time in this world was short, she brought love and joy into the lives of her family. May her family find solace in the precious moments they shared with Musfira and may they find strength in the love that will always bind them together.
