Circumcision: Yes we did it!

That’s right! JJ was circumcised yesterday morning. Well everything went pretty well except for one part, the first wake up after the anesthesia. When JJ entered the operating theatre doors and saw those medical staffs in scrubs he started to wail. The crying became worse when he saw A in scrubs too as A followed JJ to have his anesthesia done.


When JJ first woke up after the surgery, he started to cry, then cried very hard and thrashed around. He was starved, exhausted and recovering from the shock of how the anesthesia was administered on him. According to A, JJ cried and struggled when a mild anesthesia was given to him and the anesthetist gave up, gave him the mask which knocked him out in 3 seconds.


After 30 minutes of thrashing, JJ finally toned down a little. I gave him milk and water then rock him to sleep. He was sobbing while sleeping, I felt so bad. But I know this will be good for him in the long run.

JJ took a really long nap and when JJ woke up the doctor say we are good to go home. I was expecting JJ to be extremely cranky and moody after seeing the thrashing episode. But to my surprise, JJ was really happy to be home, hardly fuss and was clapping and laughing till bed time. He is a brave boy and endured the pain taking it like a grown man. I’m so proud of you son. Well done!
