Is it teething time for your little one?


We still get nervous going to the doctor’s office so it must have been no surprise when this two-year-old girl broke down in tears just moments before having heart surgery.


Every day in the week leading up to her surgery, Xin Er was visited by her doctor Shi Zhuo in an effort to get her ready for the big day.


However, when the day came nothing could calm the little girl down.


“On that day, she started crying as soon as she got into the operating theatre.


“Before this picture was taken, I took her to find her dad several times but she kept crying,” Zhuo told the Daily Mail.


“So I said let’s watch some cartoons.”


Within minutes, Er’s cries had stopped and she was smiling at the doctor’s phone where she watch her favourite cartoon.


The photo, which was captured by the anesthetist, quickly spread on social media.



“It doesn’t matter whether it’s a boy or a girl, they all get scared in the operating theatre,” Zhuo said of the moment.


“As parents, we understand that the children are scared and can appreciate the worry of the family.”


Thankfully, the surgery went well and the little girl is set to make a full recovery.
