Woke up to the news that my gynecologist, Dr Delaila Ahmad from SDMC got robbed in front of her clinic late last night at SS19. The robbers, who were riding on a motorcycle, tried to snatch her bag as she was making her way to her car. When she resisted, they slashed her with a parang. Apparently she lost her thumb and is now in the ICU.
I am completely horrified. I love Dr Delaila. She's amazing at her job. I don't even have a scar for my c-section (you can read about my c-section experience with her here). I can't imagine if she can't work again. Her patients, myself included, would be devastated.
Hopefully she'll be ok. I'm sure the best doctors are taking care of her. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.
A reminder to myself and all the ladies out there: If a robber tries to snatch your handbag, DO NOT RESIST. Your life is more precious than your bag, even if it is Chanel.
P.S: There has been a lot of break-ins this fasting month, especially during sahur and terawih. Please lock doors and gates at all times.
