Nakuul Mehta and Jankee Parekh were blessed with a Baby boy in February this year. The couple embraced parenthood after years of marriage and had been busy taking care of the little one who they have named ‘Sufi’. In an emotional post on Monday, Jankee Parekh shared that Sufi was diagnosed with Bilateral inguinal Hernia recently and had undergone surgery for the same. She emphasized that even though it was heartbreaking, with proper training, their child has come out stronger than before. Jankee Parekh also inspired and stressed the need to teach kids to be ‘happy and fearless’ to take on the challenges in life. In a post note, she assured everyone that Sufi is doing well now.

Jankee’s post read, “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.” Continuing, she shared the procedure they followed to prepare the child for the surgery with Nakuul Mehta. “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.”

Jankee Parekh added, “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.”

Sharing her story, Jankee explained the need to teach kids to be fearless and happy as they are more resilient than we think. “The best gift that we can give our children is to teach them to be ‘Happy and Fearless’ inspite of all the challenges that life throws at them,” she shared and concluded, “P.S – My champion / my fighter Sufi is doing great and is perfectly healthy.” Both Nakuul Mehta and Jankee Parekh are currently taking care of Baby Sufi.
