Wow, such a strong boy mOmmy and pApa have. Yesterday hArith had his follow-up check for his eye. The follow-up was to check on his previous ROP which he had a laser for it. Al-hamdulillah, everything is okay and there’s no reoccur of it. For the check-up, hArith need to dilate his eyey first to allow doctor to check his eye pupil better. Upon putting the eye drops hArith remain very very calm which mOmmy finds it real amazing. mOmmy saw other babies and kids crying out loud and struggling when nurse wanted to put the drop but hArith was very very calm. He allows mOmmy and nurse to open wide his eyes for the nurse to put the drop, hArith didn’t even tried to blink at all. mOmmy’s optic nerves has been swollen since 2005, so mOmmy knows what it feels when the doctor dilate the eyes.
Then it hit me, do babies really understand when we talk to them. Coz started since few days back I’ve been talking to hArith, telling him that on Friday he has his eye check-up and he should allow the doctor to check his eye. I told him to behave when doctor check his eye and to be strong. In fact just before the nurse put the eye drops, again mOmmy told hArith, be strong ya…I’ll buy you a baju raya if you remain calm and strong. Wow he responded to it. Guess you really want new clothes for raya (good excuse mOmmy has to tell pApa that I want to do some shopping…hehehe)
When the doctor check his eyes, I was told to leave the room. Once done, the nurse called me to take hArith,I could then see he has really red eye bag. It looks swollen cause the doctor use a metal thingy to hold his eyes open. But yet, my baby hArith was nicely asleep. Wow that shows how strong hArith is, that he could continue his sleep straight away. I believe I have a lil’ hero! Coz even mOmmy and pApa would avoid seeing how the metal thingy place at his eyes, coz it really looks OuuccHh.
According to my mom, perhaps that was nothing after what he had went through for the pass 3 months. All kinds of procedure doctor did to him already. So he’s growing to be a real tough boy! Go hArith! Be a good strong boy and protect your sister athirAh!
