MUMBAI: Nakuul Mehta's wife Jankee Parekh Mehta has shared details about how her newborn son had to undergo a surgery recently.
Their son Sufi had just turned two months old when he underwent the surgery after being diagnosed with bilateral inguinal hernia.
In an Instagram post, she revealed how she battled with her emotions when she came to know about the diagnosis and need for the surgery.
Sharing a picture with her son, Jankee wrote, "Almost thought would not share this, but seeing so many of you open up your lives to me, I feel so much more courage to share my story, now. 3 weeks ago, our little ‘Sufi’ was diagnosed with Bilateral lnguinal Hernia & the doctors advised immediate surgical intervention. Inspite of it being a safe surgical procedure in infants, just the thought of having my little one having to undergo a surgery under general anesthesia broke my heart."
She added how she prepped him for it and concluded by saying, "Cut to the day of the surgery, the day when he turned 2 months. Sufi behaved exactly the way we planned. He slept till the time I handed him over to the surgeon in the OT. Post the surgery, when he woke up, the next whole hour I just spoke to him on how well he did, what a champ he’s been through it all & how he needs to wait just a little bit longer for milk. I was just amazed at how this boy who needs milk every 2 hours patiently waited for 7 hours in total before getting his feed. The smile on his face after he got milk was just priceless."
Take a look.
