Two weeks back, we went to my friend’s open house. Her sister happen to be one of the doctor in the SCN (Special Care Nursery – PPUM) team. Yes, she was there when hArith n athirAh spent months in the hospital, fighting to survive for their life. As we entered the house, we were surprised to see Prof CT Lim there (Prof leads the SCN team). After seeing him every single day for four months, we build a good relationship with him. Our kids still go to him for their paeds madical check up. Initially when we go for their follow-up check up at PPUM, the chances of seeing him was rather slim, it will be any random paeds doctor that will do the check-up, thus we decided to register our kids at the UMSC to enable us to see Prof CT Lim personally.
Coincidently, we had a lil gift for Prof and was just telling syauQi we should pay him a visit the following week. But since we bump into him, we tried our luck to invite him over to our house (since ourhouse is just 5 mins away from my friend’s house) To our delight, he agreed. Wahhh it was such an honour to have him as our guest.
Funny thing was, when Prof entered the house, suddenly hArith asked “mane telinga doctor?” I thought Prof’s hair was long that it covered his hair, but nope his ears wasnt covered. So i asked hArith for some clarification on his question. Again he said “mane telinga doctor? Then it triggered to me….ohhhh he was asking mane doctor’s stethoscope, hahah. He associate doctor with a stethoscope since every check up doctor will use that to check on him.
Prof stayed for tea for more than an hour or so, he saw the true colours of my kids behaviour and activities. Kids and syauqi managed to take a quick snap with Prof
hArith (760gram) and athirAh (600gram), born at 26 gestation weeks: one of Prof success story 😀
Prof is such an observant man, each time die buat rounding, bukan je nurse, i pun kecut perut skali, making sure my nails are really short, no rings , bracelet or watsoever. If not sure kena tegur. Malu wo kena tegur. By the look at it, mcm die tgk sekali arung je at the babies, but no he actually sees every single detail. cadar katil budak tak tegang pun nurse kena woo. I remembered one of the days i asked him “Prof, how’s my kids’ progressing” and he answered ” you tell me, since u sit here longer than i do, i only come for couple of minutes and leave but as a mother i see that you sit by your kids for hours, so what do you see?” hihihih. And we had a casual discussion on their progress and suprisingly my observation “report” was correct 😀
Oh and as usual, athirAh will be doing her own stuff mase Prof ade. but bile Prof nak balik, i called her to say goodbye to Prof, dgn muka selenge nye she came to the front door and said “Bye doc!” wave her hand and pegi balik to the tv. Wah sukehati je panggil doc instead of doctor…haha
