He is supposed to be born tomorrow on the 5th, tapi hari tu ada komplikasi sikit. Breech yakni songsang and few more issues, so doktor advice untuk C-Sect. Maka 18hb Ogos, lahirlah anak aku yang dinamakan Rizq.
I was joking to Atiqah. I said, sunat bagi nama hari ke 7 tu because by that time, people stop caring about you name the baby. I made my son name short as my name is long enough. So, yep, just Rizq. That’s it.
Being a dad is surreal. It was a great experience albeit a hectic two weeks paternity leave. Aku minta cuti tambahan. Memang 7 hari dah dapat automatik bila Tiqah bersalin. It was good that I took longer leave sebab C-Sect ni, kena cucuk Heparin every 12 hours. So routine first 10 days ialah bawah Tiqah ke klinik dan hospital pagi dan malam untuk cucuk. Baby pun kena bawa hampir setiap hari sebab kuning.
It’s way easier taking care of my nephews and niece. Now, being a parent, I have to worry about his well being. Tak cukup menyusu, tak cukup berak. Rizq masuk wad 2 kali sebab kuning yang turun naik. Semalam kena cucuk banyak sikit sebab kena hantar sampel ke Hospital Kubang Kerian. I’m back in Penang therefore I can only pray that he is going to be okay, be well and grow up healthy.
I tried to be a helfpul dad when I was back in Kelantan. Tiqah need to do more as to naturally feed him and also to be recovered from the operation. It was seriously tiring, which I am sure Tiqah felt more; but yet I do feel grateful through all of this. Seeing Rizq doing okay, walaupun kepala lembik-lembik gerak kiri kanan, gave me a huge joy I can’t describe. Semalam Tiqah hantar gambar Rizq lepas kena cucuk. I felt so sad, nasib baik tak nangis ja dalam office.
I am thankful that people around me are being very supportive. I hope you guys can also send a prayer for his health, supaya kuningnya berkurang dan tak ada sebarang komplikasi yang tak diingini.
17 hari dah dia hari ni.
