KAPASI, Malik Hassanali Gower
By Sarah GOWER and Peter GOWER, Page A20
Inspiration. Born June 7, 2004, in Ottawa. Died November 7, 2005, in Kingston, Ontario, of complications from leukemia (Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia), aged 17 months.
We welcomed Malik Hassanali Gower KAPASI on a Monday, a beautiful sunny late spring day in Ottawa. In the first part of his life he lived in several places before Bancroft, Ontario, as he followed his parents on their family-medicine locums. He was a well-experienced West Jet Cadet. At two months he liked floating in warm-water pools. He took his first canoe trip at four months. Six months found him out on Quebec ski trails, and watching a children's pageant in St. George's Cathedral, as he chewed on the altar rail. At 10 months he was delighted to watch a moose walk across the front lawn of the house.
The second part of his life started when he could not throw off a cold. He began Victoria Day in Bancroft, went on to Belleville, and came by ambulance to Kingston General Hospital. One week later, at 11½ months, he was diagnosed with leukemia (Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia). He rarely complained at the many procedures that were carried out on him. He loved to tell you where his eyes, nose and tummy were, but didn't like to tell you about his ears because someone might want to look in them. He happily crawled around with intravenous lines attached. He ignored the central line in his chest. He let everybody know where his shoes were, in the hope that they might take him out. He knew which of the four purple hippos was Mr. Hippo, and which were mere substitutes. Mr. Hippo now rests with him.
He was generous with his food. He would be overcome with excitement when one of his parents returned from work, and would start handing them food from his highchair tray in welcome. During quiet times with his tearful Mom, he would carefully choose his best grape or pea and offer it to her as a little cheer-up gift. Once, in his stroller, he spotted a cat and, much to its bemusement, he excitedly offered it his half-eaten baby carrot. He loved feeding the sparrows and the seagulls outside the hospital's pediatric wing.
He also became one of the best non-verbal communicators we have ever met. His emphatic "No, thanks" head shaking was just as clear as his happy "Yes, please!" full-body bouncing. Two big brown eyes would speak volumes of pleasure, concern or sleepiness. His trust was absolute, and as long as someone he loved was there to tell him all was okay, he believed, taking the next challenge in stride.
He taught us so much about dealing with adversity. When he felt tired, he cuddled quietly or slept. When he felt energetic, he crawled, and read books, and stacked things and explored with the exuberance of any toddler. He never felt sorry for himself, and in turn we could not feel sorry for ourselves. His days with us were true gifts.
We don't know what his aspirations were, nor his potential. He was loved by all of us who watched him fight and suffer and recover and try again and smile and giggle and hold up his arms in welcome. He drew together two families living on five continents, Sarah and Hassan's Friends and co-workers, neighbours, and the Kingston General Hospital skilled medical and support staff. He is missed by all, and by a Dalmatian who wonders why her favourite smell visits no more.
And at the end he lay in his hospital bed and listened through the evening as his parents spoke about his life. Then, on another Monday, just before midnight, our 17-month-old left us.
The next day we said goodbye to Malik, on a beautiful sunny fall afternoon in Kingston, with the sun setting, his sparrows singing and the geese flying south.
Sarah is Malik's mother; Peter is his grandfather.
