Syukur alhamdulillah...Hilman's "snip-snip" was hassle-free and, more importantly, rather "pain-free" for him, except for when Dr. Ra*ak sprayed the freezing cold anaesthetics to his ***** AND, errrr, there was also one part when he was wincing in pain, and when Dr Ra*ak asked him why, he said his Mommy was squeezing his hands too tightly. HAHAHAHA! I was so tensed that I didn't realize I was doing that to him, actually! Be rest assured, Hilman was pain-free after that. Dr. Ra*ak chit-chatted away with him, and before he knew it, it was all done :)
Thank you for the tips given by some of you on the pre and post-snipping's TLCs. A special thanks especially goes to Mrs A. That advice on having Hilman wear a seluar cerut and a big pair of undies (to house the cup-cum-protector was really useful). I never thought about that. I was only thinking of the times when my brothers had their snip-snips more than thirty years ago, and I could only think of one thing - kain pelikat! Come to think of it, I just can't imagine Hilman wearing a kain pelikat walking back to the car after the procedure when all the other boys were wearing normal trousers, etc after their procedures! That would have been quite a sight to behold! Hehehe!
I didn't have time to go and get a decent seluar cerut for Hilman this morning, but, I managed to dig through my wardrobe and found the seluar for my salwar kameez given by a dear friend Mu*ni to me in Newcastle last year which was a perfect (rather baggy pants at the right place) for Hilman to use. I had to fold it a couple of times though, as it was rather long for him. I didn't tell Hilman that they were mine. If not, sure sampai sudah he would not want to wear them!
Ayah reached home from work at 11:25a.m, and we straight away made our way to DSH and reached there at 11:45a.m. Mak was already waiting for us there. My Mommy couldn't make it as she also had a doctor's appointment this afernoon. There were 3 boys who also had their snip-snip before Hilman. His appointment was supposed to be at 12:00p.m but, Dr. Ra*ak only managed to see him at about 12:55p.m. Suffice to say, Hilman was pretty restless waiting for his turn. He kept on asking me for the time. But, seeing the boys who came out of Dr.Ra*ak's clinic before him walking just fine and smiling away (sheepishly, I may add :)) made him feel less anxious, I guess.
All in all, including the cleaning done pre and post-procedure took about 30 minutes or so, and before Hilman knew it, it was all over. Dr Ra*ak is really good with kids, and I think he managed to make Hilman feel relaxed in no time at all! I would recommend him to those who have anak-anak bujang untuk disunatkan. A very nice doctor indeed.
When we reached home, his sisters started teasing him, especially his Kak Long Hanna who kept on asking him if she could see "it" - much to Hilman's horror and annoyance. Hanna kept on going, "Can I see it, dear brother? Please, please...pretty please?" (While batting her eyelids to Hilman!). Even until tonight he's still being teased by the sisters. Anyway, Hanna said somehow her lil' baby brother nampak "macho" pulak after coming back from the hospital (I'm not sure if she really meant it, or it's part of her teasing Hilman, too?). Hahaha!
Anyway, here are some pics of my boy - pre and post snip-snip. Ada nampak difference ke? :)
