As a new parents, capturing pictures of ourselves with our newborn babies is an activity that brings us joy.
However, when the father took the hilarious picture of his daughter, he had no idea that he was about to save her life.
When he was taking photos of his kid after her first bath, he thought her expression was amusing. Then he put the photo online.
The comments flooded in, but one remark from a pediatrician captured the father’s complete attention: “She’s destined to be a rebel, marrying a guy with no money and no tattoos,” along with other entertaining comments.
“Do her eyes appear slightly yellowish? It seems that way to me, although it’s difficult to determine because the entire photo has a yellow tint. It’s likely insignificant, but it could be a sign of neonatal jaundice. If her skin and eyes do exhibit a slight yellow hue, perhaps you should have it examined. I tend to be an overly cautious pediatrician, hence my concern.”
Deeply affected by this comment, the father promptly took his daughter to the doctor. The doctor’s overly cautious observation turned out to be true: the baby had jaundice, and it is highly likely that the doctor’s foreboding remark played a pivotal role in saving her life!
While jaundice is common among young children, if left unattended, it can lead to fatality or severe brain damage.
Although many consider posting and reading online comments to be futile, in this instance, it truly played a life-saving role! Applause for the diligent doctor, who exemplifies the type of compassionate individual we should have more of.
