Blessed with a baby boy!
If you’ve ever updated your FB status to this, you will know what joy it brings. I mean not the FB status, the baby! It happened to us one day as well.
If you’ve put this status after you get a baby, it mostly means your baby is sick. And you would know what hud hud would go within you till that cursed virus or bacteria leaves your little one. It happened to us as well.
Exactly a few days after my son’s first birthday, I visited our neighbour’s house for an evening chat. My son hadn’t started walking by himself till then. He walked holdings things but always on his toes and never tried to keep his heels down. The neighbour uncle said it looks a concerning thing and we must see a doctor. I wasn’t sure if it really was.
But his remark hadn’t left me completely. The next day we took an appointment to his pediatric. She did a gait test and a few physical check up. And declared he needs a MRI of brain and spine taken immediately. That would also need a mild anesthesia. I couldn’t think or speak anything till I finished crying for a while. The happy and healthy child as he was for one whole year needs what?!
There cannot be anything worse that can disturb a parent as knowing there’s something not well with your child’s health. It was our time of life! A series of investigations, hospitals and doctors could actually do nothing about it; not even diagnose rightly what it could be. We only heard exaggerated assumptions from their clinical experiences of medical terms that could doom any parent on earth. I don’t even want to recollect such terms ever. It did take a few weeks of therapy of the unsure sort. But not too long, he started walking perfectly one morning. 6 months past his first birthday, today he can do all that a spider man can.
Neither do we or doctors still know what had happened and how it got undone.
Out of the several miseries around us, I now know how it is to be a parent of a sick child. Even a common cold on your child is not going to let you sleep well. And when it is something bigger, it gets difficult, especially in cases like our’s where we didn’t know whom to believe and what to assume.
We can never take control of certain situations. Never! Sometimes we are merely puppets in life. But it just takes the human in us to do certain deeds like this:
Prayers and donations!
You don’t have to believe a GOD to do prayers. Whole-heartedly send good wishes to every child who may be sick at this point, anywhere around our globe. Believe in your act. Encourage your children to do the same.
Many children are unhealthy because their parents do not have enough money for treatment. Help them. Even a little will mean a lot.
