As her daily routine goes, she got up early in the wee hours after the alarm clock sound, trying not to awake her husband, Marco Shafiq, who returned home late. She was seeking to give her husband one more hour of sleep. She was yawning but while starting her busy hour as usual without awakening her son and daughter, George and Natalie, who succeeded in the sixth and third year at their primary school
Minutes went past while she was busy preparing lunch as well as breakfast. She did her usual job as fast as she always did. She went to the children room and drew the curtains. She went to her daughter’s bed and kissed her.
George woke up smiling and asked her about the time she would be home. They had to go to the club for their training. She assured him she would be home before the training time. It was a quarter past seven and it was time to awake her husband. They had to go to el-Sahel Training Hospital in their daily work routine.
They had a joined trip of 13 years; over these years, love brought them together as life partners. They worked together as an anesthetist and a surgeon. They joined forces in the fight against diseases.
While in the car going to work, she remembered their study years at the Qasr el-Aini Faculty of Medicine
where they studied and graduated.
It was eight in the morning, anesthetist Margret Hana started her job. There were four operations. She joined the operations team and started her job, while talking and explaining her job; of course she was doing the Egyptian way of living by telling jokes and laughing.
At 40, she had a smiling face as and was as calm as ever doing her job with great commitment. Some might think an anesthetist role is not noteworthy, but without an anesthetist there is no medical operation and she is in charge of the patient during the operation, till she brings back the patient to life.
She finished the first operation, the second and the third, and the fourth and as she was bracing to work on the last case, she felt headache and went to the toilet. She was late and her colleagues felt worried. They felt something wrong may have happened to her.
They broke the door to find out that she had passed away. Her death was due to blood pressure. Her funeral started from the hospital where she and her husband joined together to make a family. Her colleagues and friends were left astonished. She was a simple person who died in tranquility.
