Last 2 weeks was a bad week for us, my baby had to go for inguinal hernia surgery on Friday 12 March 2010. Was running like mad parents the night of 11 March 2010 to ER of Selangor Medical Centre and ER of Prince Court Medical Centre. Both hospitals can't do the surgery for some reason.
Selangor Medical Centre: the attending doctor on the night of 11 March 2010 at around 8:30 pm refused to even checked my baby claiming that her hernia is serious and nothing he could do he said "just get her admitted and surgery will only be done on the 20 March 2010" Are you ****ing stupid asking us to checked in your hospital today and paying you everyday for the hospital charges and wait until the 20th??? for the surgery!!! Their reason was "our pediatric surgeon Dato' Dr Zakaria will only be available on Saturday and this coming Saturday he is not around next Saturday we can do the operation" after listening to their stupid explanation I quickly walked out and told my husband lets go to Prince Court.
Prince Court Medical Centre: the attending doctor that night in the ER (he is just a normal MO) Dr Kumar don't know what to do with my baby and he called Dr Anthony - Mia's pediatrician and he suggested us to go to Gleneagles Hospital Ampang for Dr Zuraidah or SJMC now known as Sime Darby Medical Centre for Dr Goon. Prince Court called both hospital for us and Dr Goon is available the next morning. Since the clock was at 1:00 am we decided to go home since my baby is sleepy and all of us are tired.
The next morning off we go to SJMC to see Dr Goon and after checking my baby he explained thoroughly about the situation, what is the next steps we should take, what is the "-" and "+", and so many questions has been answered by him. After our discussion he straight away booked the operation theater and arranged for the surgery at around 4:00 pm.
Her last food/water was at 10 am and she will be fasting a few hours before the surgery. Poor baby, crying every time she sees unknown people around her i.e: nurses, doctors and who ever that touched her. We checked in the room before noon and around 2:30 pm they wheeled us to the operation theater's lobby, later she was taken to the operation theater and I waved her from far and seeing her crying really heart wrenching for me. If you are a mother you should be able to understand my situation.
Since I have not perform my Zohor's prayer yet, I went to our room for solat and went up again waited for her at the waiting room and managed to do some readings (I am currently reading Dessert Royal by Jean Sasson) about almost and hour Dr Goon called me as the surgery was done and successful and explained to me the whole scenario. 10 minutes later I was called again by the nurses as she is crying (woke up already) and she seems alright and hungry.
She is now recovering very well and active as before...here are some photos taken before and after the surgery. I think this will explain why I have not been scrapping for quite sometime and she is our priority at this moment.
