Looking at the title, I guess it sounds like Christmas already.. Hari raya ade gift ke? I don’t know bout others but I surely got the best gift ever! Syukur Alhamdulillah..
In my entry; “Hanya Seorang Ibu”, I mentioned that kami pernah dikhabarkan dgn satu lagi kemungkinan yang menakutkan, yang seterusnya membuat saya sekali lagi rasa terduga hingga sanggup mempertikaikan keputusan saya melahirkan Rayyan Ariff..
And now, saya menarik nafas lega dan bersujud syukur pada Allah yang maha esa. October 6, we brought Rayyan for a check up with his ophthalmologist. The doctor has confirmed that Rayyan can see!!
Yes friends, we have been told by the doc that Rayyan may not be able to see.. It was on the 4th of June that we were informed bout it. Rayyan’s paed called hubby after he was unable to get me. When hubby reached home, he was looking so sad. He doesn’t talk at all and he was mad at me for not answering Dr.Yong’s call. After a while, dgn rasa sebak yang mendalam, he told me what the doctor has told him. There’re tears in his eyes. “Abang baru ingat nak bawak Rayyan gi tengok football match..”
Since he’s not even a month old, doc said to give him some more time. Baby starts seeing and focusing at the age of 3 months, since he was born premature, they can only confirm when he’s 3 months old – not birth age, but corrected age.
So altogether, we have been waiting to know the answer for 5 months! But we always believe that he can see. When we talk to him, he’ll look at us and talk back. If we smile at him, he’ll smile back.. When we raised this thing up to the paed; Dr.Yong and Dr.Mazidah, they said, “Ooo.. Maybe he’s reacting to your voice.. Not really looking at your face.” “But doc, if we brought him from a dark room to a brighter place, he’ll surely blink. Silau. He also follow movements” Then the paed said again “Hmmm.. Maybe he can only react to lights and shadows.” This is among the line that was used to shut us up. But, whatever it is, we still believe in our little hero.
Sekarang, Alhamdulillah.. Serasa batu besar yang menghimpit dada ini sudah terlepas.. Dulu, setiap kali saya memangku Rayyan utk menyusukannya, dia akan mendongak dan melihat tepat ke anak mata saya. Dan setiap kali juga, saya akan mengalirkan air mata pabila menyaksikan mata jernih itu kerana tertanya-tanya, apa yang dilihatnya. Kini, terasa betapa berbaloinya air mata seorang ibu.
Dan semalam, we brought Rayyan for his monthly check-up with his paed. And again, we’re happy to know that Rayyan is healthy and he’s doing what other 3 months old baby is doing. Another concern is that, dia still x meniarap.. So, the paed taught me some exercise for him. But my MIL x brp suka if I do it. Katanya, lain budak, lain la caranya.. Ada yang 6 bulan baru meniarap.. Biar la.. Jgn preassure Rayyan sangat2.. Baik Bos!! (Sambil angkat tangan tabik..)
Sekrang ni, for Rayyan’s sake, kami berulang alik KL-Rawang tiap2 hari.. We’re staying at my PIL’s place coz they’re taking care of Rayyan.. Penat memang penat. 630am dh turun ok..
K la, that’s all for now.. Here is 1 photo that I managed to find that can be considered as a proof to show that Rayyan CAN SEE.. He's looking at his cousin..
P/s – Ni conversation I had with Alimin’s 2nd cousin. (He’s studying medic, his mom is one of the paed who examined Rayyan n dad is one of the gyne that I’ve consulted during my pregnancy..). This conversation took place ms kitorg gi raya umah dia kat KB, 1st day of raya..
Nik Ariff : Kak Jiey, Rayyan bleh tengok ke?
Me : Nape Nik Ariff tanya?
Nik Ariff : Tu dia tengok TV tu..
Me : Itu la pasal. Dh dia tengok tu, agak2nya, bleh la kot.. 6hb ni bleh confirm coz kitorg ade appoinment dgn ophthalmologist.
Nik Ariff : Hmm.. Pelik, tp Nik Ariff rasa, dia bleh tgk la.. Dia mesti la strong, coz nama dia pn ”Ariff” gak..
Me : InsyaAllah.. Nnt dia pun jd doktor cam Nik Ariff.. Heheheheh
Ada kawan yang mintak I share my experience pasal pregnancy, delivery and confinement.. I'm considering actually. Tp byk sedih dr happy, so ala-ala malas sket.. Tgk la camne..
