Children’s Cry




"The small intestine was getting sucked up by the big intestine."

A colleague of mine was pale in the face when the specialist doctor broke the news to her.

Her baby was crying pitifully right beside her.

"How is it possible?" The young mother inquired.

"It is rare, but it does happen."

The young mother was scared; she shivered, trembled and sobbed.

But the baby was in good hands.

The experienced doctor was very gentle and did his duty well.

The child was kicking and smiling again......

*******

The young couples were traveling on their way home when the incident happened.

The baby was in great pain; sweating, screaming and kicking.

The husband got really panic, unsettled and undecided as to what to do.

The young mother looked at the young father, very concerned; something must be done fast.

They finally made up their mind to make a return trip to the city to see a specialist doctor.

They contacted him and felt relief to know that he was available.

*******

The young mother was still pale, trembling and shivering this morning when she related her story to us.

It was one of her many bad experiences; her first one when they discovered that the child was with jaundice.

Many young mothers were gathering around to listen and to share. It wasn’t easy for young mothers to bring up children on their own.

Some have said that there are three rings in marriage: the engaging ring, the wedding ring, and suffering. Maybe it is true to the core.

But the joy of seeing children grow and watching them achieve developmental milestones is really nice.

It is worth the pain, the panic and the sacrifice; it rejoices the heart and makes the soul sings.

*******

The baby is well fed and finally very fast asleep.

The young mother is sitting beside him, humming, singing and massaging him; the baby chuckles and smiles once in a while.

The young mother smiles heartily and forgets all her tiredness, panic, and headache.

The young mother looks at her child, she embraces and kisses him, and then she smiles broadly and says, “I love you, my child.”
