Poor dad and gran have been eating take-away for a month although long-suffering sis has been cooking after work intermittently and looks exhausted (try doing it with three kids hon).
Mum suffers from very bad asthma and was struggling on a daily basis. Usually a trip to Pakistan gives her relief, but hadn’t this time, so she had hoped that a trip to Khewra’s famous salt mines might help. A specialist asthma clinic has been established there recently which recommends that patients spend about 10 hours a day in rooms made of salt. It all sounded a bit hokey, but we were getting desperate. Scientific or not, it seems to have worked.
Happily, she says that she can breathe at last and the asthma attacks have stopped alhamdulillah. So I’m hoping she stays well insh’Allah (she still has her hay fever to contend with and my sister’s hairy cat). Lots of people have asked about the hospital, so if anyone is interested or curious the contact details are:
Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation Salt Mines Khewra
District Jhelum, pakistan.
Tel: 0092 544211118
If anyone is interested, ask me in a few weeks via the comments and I will let you know if the effects remain and my mum is still well insh'Allah.
In amongst all that salt-mine visiting she managed to fit in some shopping (you can’t keep my mum away from the bazaar), so I and Little Lady received presents too:
