3rd January 2008



Assalamualaikum & Goodday
.
On the outset, allow me to wish all of you, a very Happy New Year 2008. May 2008 be a good one for you.
.

Anyways, on the 3rd of January.....
.


0000 hrs > Home
.
Happy Birthday Mama!!!
.

.
0830 hrs > Alif Hafi goes to school
.
First day of school. He was ok when we reached the school. Happy as always. But then, some of the kids started to cry, and this upset him. By 9 am, he cannot tahan anymore, he started to sob. But we were there to console him. By 9.30 we left for the hospital, we didnt say goodbye thou, lest he will cry. So off we went.....

Alif & Mama before going to school

.
.
1000 hrs > Doctor's Office
.
'U are 3 days overdue rite?'
'Yup'
'Ok, i think u should rest la'
'Ok doc, when should we come again?'
'No, no....u should rest here, in the ward, i need to monitor u'
'oh?...ok...(sib baik dah bawak baju)'
.
.
1130 hrs > Phone call from Opah
.
'Mak dah amik Alif dah, dia nangis tadi'
'Lerr...apsal mak?'
'Dia terkencing dalam seluar...'
'Hahhh?!!! (sian anak aku), dia tak bgtau teacher ke?'
'Dia kata dah bgtau, tapi teacher sibuk layan budak nangis'
'Oooo...patut la, takpe la jap lagi saya balik kejap amik barang anim'
'Ok'
.
I told my wife about Alif, we laughed but at the same time we regret we couldnt be there. At this point anim was undergoing the CTG test (dont ask me what CTG is, never got the chance to ack the doc. I only know that it's a test to detect the contraction and baby's heartbeat).
.
.
1300 hrs > From ISH to home
.
I left mama at Ipoh Specialist and went back home to get some of her stuffs. Most importantly, i wanted to check on Alif. He was ok, he told me he cried because he wet his pants. He told me the exact story that Opah had told. He did informed his teacher but teacher was bz. I told him it was ok and he's a big boy and not to be afraid. Then i told about mama. He wanted to go with me, but i told him that he should wait until the baby is out. he said ok.
.
.
1400 hrs > Maternity Ward
.
When i got there, mama told me that the doctor had to induce her to facilitate the delivery. Now we had to wait.
.
.
1500 hrs > Maternity Ward
.

The contractions were rapid and unbearable. Mama seemed to be soooooo in pain. I felt helpless. I couldnt do anything. I can only offer her my hand so that she could squeeze and told her to take long breath.
.
.
1530 hrs > Maternity Ward

.
Mama said she cannot tahan anymore, i called the nurse, she came and gave mama a jab. Some sort of pain killer. She said the time is near and the opening is complete. Mama was transfered to the OT. I went in too. I wore the coat and mask. Then i kissed her on the forehead and told her 'abah ampunkan segala dosa mama'....
.
.
1545 hrs > Labor Room
.
The doctor came and immediately started the procedure....
.
Midway.....
.
'the baby is getting weaker!!'....
'u gotta help your baby ok....doctor will help ok....now push harder'
.
.........
.........
.
'this is taking too long..., nurse prepare for c section...'
'azmah, u have to help doctor and your baby ok, just a little bit more...now pushhhhh'
.
i was there beside mama, i couldnt do anything except encourage her to push. helpless....
.
.
1612 > Labor Room
.
'Baby's Out!!!!...it's a boy'
.
It was a relief. A 3.59 kg baby boy. A BIG boy. Doctor needed to use vacumm. Once the head is out the whole body followed. They put the baby on mama's belly. Mama was so exhausted she only touched him. The nurse then put him on the container and called me. I went and kissed him. Did the Azan. I stared him for almost 5 minutes and then the nurse told me to wait in the room.
.
.
1630 hrs > On the phone
.
I was so happy. Called the parents and SMSed everybody.
.
.
1700 hrs > Room 105
.
Mama was sent to the room. Baby followed a few minutes later. Mama was still drowsy and exhausted. She slept for a while and after that breastfed the baby.
.
.
1800 hrs > Room 105
.
The family came. Everybody was excited. Alif was excited too. He couldnt keep his hands off the baby.
.
.
So that was what happenned on the 3rd of January 2008. Full of excitements and adventures eh. Btw, the baby's name is Akif Wafi bin Azrul Sani. He shares the same birthday with his mother. Mama was discharged on Saturday, but Akif's still in the hospital thou, he got G6PD, which leads to jaundice, dunno when he could come home. Should be ok within a day or two.
.
So ok la. This entry is a little bit kelam kabut coz i am kelam kabut at the moment. See ya.
.
Selamat menyambut Maal Hijrah!!!!
