I’m officially a Father now!

This is what I wrote someplace else, in Chinese:

2009年4月10日 – 8:00AM
美美的菁才剛剛起身,她起身做的第一件事就是先進“開心農場”,我看了之後 真的是無言 (其實我剛起身時也是一樣。。呵呵~ )。由於我比較早就已經起身,我在換好衣服后就先到客廳看報紙看電視,美美的菁下樓之後也到廚房吃我媽為她準備的半生熟蛋以及一杯健康牛奶。不到一會兒, 我看到美美的菁從廚房以很不自然的姿態走出來説:

“阿pek!我。。。流了~羊水流出來了!”

半醒狀態的我,一聼到這句話,第一反應就是飛奔到二樓睡房去拿我們之前早已準備好的包包(裏面都是生産后的必需品)以及那用來索取臍帶血的用具盒,上下不到五秒我已經準備上車,媽媽也及時拿了一條毛巾放在車子的座位上,美美的菁坐上車子之後,我老媽提醒我:

“別駕太快,雨天路滑,到了之後記得打回來通知”

“哦!”

由於今天早上傾盆大雨,Sibu的路面因爲凹凸不平的關係(他媽的死政府!), 累積了很多積水,車子不能開太快,否則陷入hydro-planning就危險了,我維持著一個安全的車速,在5分鐘過後順利將美美的菁送到了政府醫院。 我放了美美的菁下車后,車子就先停泊在路旁,然後就牽著美美的菁到第8號房,當時沒見到任何一位護士,只有一位女性警衛,她替我接過美美的菁之後就往房裏 走去,且把我阻止在外,不得而入。我因爲一時不能了解狀況而有些許的慌張,那時候有幾位清潔工人在工作,我就問了問她們我可以去哪裏找到護士,才得知原來 護士們都在產房裏面忙著,於是我只好現待在外頭耐心等候,其間會遇到一些已經很有經驗的友族父親和母親向我問候,他們看到我如此緊張也都會安慰我,在我比 較沒有那麽憂心的當兒,肚子不自不覺已經開始餓了起來,於是便打了通電話給父母親告知狀況之後,也叫他們替我打包干盤面。

2009年4月10日 – 10:00AM
父 母親帶著干盤面到了醫院,在一邊向他們報告的同時,我也狼吞虎咽的吃下我的早餐,就在我吃完早餐不久,美美的菁從8號房走了出來,走進了待產房裏,我和我 家人也就跟了進去,跟護士了解狀況之後得知美美的菁已經開了2分,現在就先在這裡等候時機的到來,當時的時間已經接近11點。。。

由於美 美的菁早上吃的不多,肚子也開始餓了,我就跟我父母親一同回家準備Milo,牛奶,再到附近雜貨店買了些豆沙包以及cornflakes,之後我就獨自一 人再返回醫院,泡了一杯熱Milo配搭cornflakes給美美的菁吃,當時時間已經接近12點,在短短的一小時之内,美美的菁的肚子開始以越來越短間 隔的時間劇痛起來,當時我就緊握著她的手說:

“你痛的時候,就緊緊握著我的手!”

過了幾分鈡,美美的菁的劇痛開始嚴重起來,我看了情況不妙,就叫了一位護士過來,護士將美美的菁帶到一間小房間進行檢驗,我又再次被隔離在外,過了大概10分鈡的等候,門開了,美美的菁則是坐在輪椅上被推出來,護士說她已經開到了8分 ! 我聽到了之後非常驚訝,沒想到進展會這麽快,情急之下我立刻拿起我的手機,打給Cryocorp,也即是替我拿臍帶血的公司(她們之前告訴我說如果老婆開了7分,就得通知她們),打給其中一位員工,電話打不通,第二個號碼打通了之後,那位員工就說她現在就趕來。

就 在我一邊講電話的同時,老婆已經被推到了產房,當時我緊張的跟在後面,護士馬馬虎虎的告訴我先把行李收拾好,我以爲我必須把行李帶到產房,匆忙的收拾好之 後兩手拿著滿滿的東西就直接往產房的方向跑去,另一位護士看見我之後就把我截停,我就好奇的問說不是要拿去產房嗎?她說我只要收拾好然後放在床上就行了, 等一下有護士會替我帶過去,畢竟產房是不能隨意進入的,當時的我有點尷尬的又把兩手的行李放了回去 ,然後再立刻回頭找那位護士,再三提醒她們別把我給忘了!因爲我老婆在生産的時候,我一定要陪伴在她身旁!

2009年4月10日 – 12:00PM
岳父和岳母一家人抵達醫院,在得知他們的女兒已經在產房裏之後,也就陪著我一同在外面等待。Cryocorp的員工也在此時抵達,我將她們的用具盒交待給她了之後,我們就開始聊了起來,聊著聊著。。。時間就過得比較快。。。不知不覺已經快1點了。。。

2009年4月10日 – 1:15PM
產 房門口開了,一位護士走了出來,叫了那位Cryocorp的員工進去待候,也叫了我進去,那時我的心情是多麽的緊張,這個時刻終于來臨!到了裏面,第一印 象就是好。。。很平靜!完全不像我想象中那種緊張又忙碌的情景,不過就在我跟著護士多走幾步之後,我就開始聽到一些的呻吟聲,仔細一聼,這聲音就是來自美 美的菁!我已經緊張到迫不及待想沖進去了,不過那位護士則把握留住要我先填好一個form才能進入,我隨意的簽了名字,護士就替我拉開布廉,在我眼前的就 是正躺在床上的美美的菁,她身旁有三位友族護士替她接生,在護士的吩咐之下,我繞到美美的菁的右邊,繞道的同時我的眼睛是不看那個部位的,因爲我覺得不需 要冒這個“險”,到了美美的菁的身邊,我就一手扶著她的頭,一手放在她的胸口,然後說:

“阿姆,我在這裡了,護士不肯我拍照也不肯拍video。。。你要記得深呼吸,然後推!別發出聲音呀~”

當時除了一直聽到三位護士很悠閒的聊天之時(不是不負責任,而是她們司空見慣),也在替美美的菁給于鼓勵,當時一直聽到:

“terang! macam bansai saja~! push push!”
“terang! terang! jangan stop! terang! kamu pandai! pandai ya!”

之類的鼓勵話語,美美的菁很努力的在推擠,不過寶寶的頭就是一直不能完全出來,當時站在一旁跟Cryocorp員工討論事情的一位華裔老護士,好像有點不耐煩的樣子,就走了過來,說:

“哎呀~怎麽這麽難喲?” “來!你人這麽高,肯定很有力,給我深呼吸,給我一次過把寶寶擠出來!”

一說完,她就一手把美美的菁的左腿往外推,另一手則死命的在美美的菁的肚子上猛力的往下推擠,雖然看似很粗魯,不過當時美美的菁也非常爭氣,吸了一大口氣之後,就拼了老命的推!她在推的同時,我的呼吸猶如停止一般,就像我也在推那樣! 所以說,姜的還是老的辣!我對那華裔老護士敬佩不已!

雖 然之前我老婆都能夠壓抑著自己不發出太大的聲音,不過這一次,她真的是很用力的推到忍不住的尖叫出來!整個產房裏就是美美的菁的尖叫聲加上護士們那士氣高 昂的鼓勵以及支持!就在此時,寶寶的頭成功出來!我看到寶寶被其中一位護士一手連同身體抱出來的那一瞬間,我的眼淚就不停地流下來!情緒激動到了極點,忍 不住地哭了出來,並一直跟美美的菁說:

“生出來了!生出來了!”

美美的菁當時精疲力盡,而且也一直哭訴著她很痛,我當時唯一能做的就是抱住她,並一直跟她描述寶寶的樣子,以及他當時在做什麽:

“真的跟我們之前scanned過的照片一樣,鼻子大大的!”
“他手一直亂動哦!”

就這樣一直說著,寶寶也接著發出了他第一次的哭聲,那是多麽悅耳動聽以及感動的聲音!我和美美的菁當時就是如此看著我們的寶寶,相擁哭泣。

由 於護士們必須繼續她們的職務,我就被她們吩咐離開產房,我給了美美的菁一個深情的吻之後,就很依依不捨的一邊抹著眼淚和鼻屎走出了產房。當時在外等候的就 是岳父岳母一家人,在我告知他們這個好消息了之後,大家都開心得不得了。接著我就迫不及待的打電話通知我的父母,也發了超多的sms給我要好的朋友們有關 這個好消息。

我們的寶貝兒子,Darren Wong。。于今天1點25分,成功誕生,體重3.1kg。。。

Darren Wong

My Wife and Darren

_________________________________________________________________________________________

For those of you that can’t read Chinese, here’s the summary:

My son was born yesterday (10th April 2009) at 1:25 pm, weighs 3.1kg, and his name is Darren.  I fetched my wife to the hospital at 8:00am morning, she was sent to the labour room at 12:00pm.

When my wife was delivering, I was there with her, the moment my wife successfully pushed the baby out, I immediately broke down in tears, I just couldn’t describe how emotional I was at that special moment, it was unbelievable, amazing and magical, just like a miracle.  Having my first baby boy born safe and sound, I am extremely grateful, definitely my most unforgettable and wonderful experience of my life thus far.  ^^

  4. Hopped over from STP’s. Congratulations! Very lovely baby.

  5. tofu: My son had a G6PD deficiency, he has to stay away from certain beans and medicine or he’ll get real, real sick. Apart from that, he’s alright. But hearing the news 2 days back was devastating, my wife definitely had it worse, but they’re both at home now, good thing!

    STP: Yea, those pictures weren’t taken with flash at all. ^^

    Cibol: Indeed, it’s a magical experience!

    God grant you much love, patience and wisdom.

  14. 很感动哦~!真替你高兴啊!

  15. Oh G6PD def… Avoid flava beans (kacang parang), napthelene balls (moth balls), and some anti malarial treament. That means if exposed, he’ll get very bad jaundice! There’s a list of things he has to avoid. Which is in his baby blue card. And also need to inform doctors treating him in the future that he has G6PD def. otherwise, it is actually no big deal… He’ll grow up to be a fine normal young man!! So how’s early fatherhood?

  16. HOLY CRAP YOU HAVE A BABY

    CONGRATS!

    and dude he almost has the same birthday as me, i’m april 11th!
