11 fingers

My ex-colic msn-ed me few days ago, telling me about her colic's had give birth to twins baby girls. Everyone of her family is happy to hear she is carrying twins, but after the bb is out, they become sad.

Why? Coz they saw both the newborn girls' finger was 11, not the usual 10 fingers, so looks abnormal to them. Her MIL even scolded her for using scissor during pregnancy, that's cause the bb like that. OMG! Still got such narrow minded people! Come on la, she is a nurse, sure use scissor daily mah. Well, this is the fact, they have to face it.

Later the gynae suggest to them can remove the extra finger, ask them refer bone specialist first. The MIL welcomes the suggestion, and keeps pestering the parent to do so. Well, one bb’s finger can be chopping after 3rd day, whereas the other one have to wait till she is 1-2 yo, due to finger bone structure is more complicated. Yesterday heard from my ex-colic, the bb’s finger already chops off. Ouch, must be so painful I think.

This is other family business, I cannot say much. But if me, I don’t think I will let them chop off my bb’s little finger. After all extra fingers will not make you look like alien too why worry about it? I pity the bb only, such young age already have to suffer the pain. The one chop one might not know the pain now coz still small mar; I am referring to the second wan. At age 1-2, I am sure she’ll its pain being chop! I really couldn’t think further now.
