***Baby Dhiren Kumar Lim Vasudevan ***

Sometimes the best of miracles come when you least expect them. My best friend has been struggling with fertility issues ever since she got married. Just at the point of losing hope, one began to think of how wondrous GOD's plans can be. They've both been tested with their own share of challenges and faired. She was ecstatic with the news right before christmas. It was indeed a wonderful christmas and anniversary present for their whole family. I too got really excited and happy with the news. Daanya was just about 9 months and I was just changing her when I received my best friend's phone call bearing good and happy news. I was all smiles. I was happy and cannot help a release a sigh thinking into the future and hope that our kids too can be best of friends....and I started seeing both of us hanging out together with our kids over lunch or tea or dinner and having get togethers where we exchange views and advices on parenting, buying the best gifts or presents for their birthdays together...the works...

And it was a plain weekend...A normal and typical Sunday though it was a Merdeka holiday. I had just completed the normal routine of house chores and was taking a breather, when an SMS came in and read that she was in labor...a series of sms followed giving me the updates and immediately I wished that I was there too to give her the support that she very well deserves.Alas, baby Dhiren was born after a c-section....our very own merdeka baby. Weighing in at 4.10 kg....that is one big baby....

Pat sweetie,
I am so proud of you. Though you had to go through the C-section no matter how hard you fought to avoid it...it is ok...the point is to receive the baby safely and also ensuring your well being. There will be ups an
d downs and what I call rough patches to go through, but believe me they are all so worth it. There will be sacrifices to be made but believe me it is for the good of your child. You may lose rest and be exhausted all year round and again but we'll do it anyway for the sake of our child. You will get excited waiting for all the spurts and the new and exciting stuff he will learn and able to do. You will get excited giving up your needs just so he can have the best of everything. You will need to leave him behind one day cause you are unable to avoid and spend that whole time away thinking of him. Just a minute and you will find yourself missing him already. You will wish that you did not have to contribute to the household because you'd rather watch and see him grow right before your very eyes. You will understand what our parents went through taking care of us growing up and the hurdle that they have to cross just so we can have what seemed like a perfect life. This will make you appreciate them more. It is going to be a fun yet exhausting roller coster ride and I am here to share with you every single day of it. I am always here for you loyal and supportive. Always at your beck and call...
