Nakuul Mehta’s wife Jankee pens a note on how their two-month-old son Sufi was diagnosed with bilateral inguinal hernia and how she prepared him for surgery

Ishqbaaz fame Nakuul Mehta and wife Jankee Parekh became parents to baby boy Sufi in February this year. Jankee recently took to her social media account to share that their son Sufi was diagnosed with Bilateral inguinal Hernia and had to undergo a surgery. Sharing a beautiful picture with son Sufi, Jankee penned an emotional note and revealed how she prepared him for the surgery.

In the long note, Jankee mentioned how she kept crying after learning that their little one had to undergo a surgery and then the next three days went into preparing son to stay without milk for 7 hours because he had to undergo surgery under general anesthesia.

Jankee informed everyone, “3 weeks ago, our little ‘Sufi’ was diagnosed with Bilateral inguinal Hernia & the doctors advised immediate surgical intervention. Despite it being a safe surgical procedure in infants, just the thought of having my little one having to undergo surgery under general anaesthesia broke my heart.”

She further opened up on how she prepared him for the procedure, “The day I found out, tears wouldn’t stop. My next 3 nights went in preparing him for the procedure. What worried me was the fact that he had to fast for 4 hours before and 2 hours after surgery as he was going to be administered anesthesia. So until the day of the surgery, I would wake him up every night at 3 am, feed him & then time his sleep pattern making sure that he doesn’t wake up for the next 4.5 hours & if he did, I didn’t feed him immediately. My plan was to mimic the day of the surgery, so that his body clock gets trained for the procedure & he doesn’t wake up earlier & ask for milk. Besides that I kept talking to him about how he needs to sleep for longer on that day, how we are going to get through this together. He would keep staring at my face & listen attentively. Or at least that’s what I thought:-).”

Jankee then elaborated on the details of the surgery. She said, “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. Babies are a lot more resilient than we think. They understand & sense each & everything that we feel & communicate. I truly believe my long chats with Sufi & our training helped him pass this exam with flying colours. The best gift that we can give our children is to teach them to be ‘Happy and Fearless’ in spite of all the challenges that life throws at them.”

Nakuul reacted on the post and was super proud of his wife and baby boy. He called them, “My Champions.”

Several other TV stars like Anita Hassanandani, Suyyesh Rai, Drashti Dhami, Ruslaan Mumtaz and others showered their love, well-wishes and blessings on Sufi.
