Jacob Dean. Part 2

At the last minute they decided not to do the surgery to check into the diagnoses a little further. It turns out I did not have the anurism. The baby was not taken at the time. I spent three weeks in ICU waith a condition called ARDS. Everyday that I laid there with my lil guy in there I just loved him more and more.

I was released from the hospital and sent home to wait a few weeks before delivering. The longer that I could carry him the better his chances were.

A C-Section was scheduled for October 11, 1999. On October 7,1999 I went to see the OB-GYN and told him to go ahead and take the lil guy it was time. I thought he was kidding. He said to meet him at the hospital. I was scared? Why an emergency C-section?? What was wrong? (I knew from MRI’s that i had a dysfunctional aurtoa valve). What did the doctor hear that made him worry? I was too scared to ask.

At 3:09 pm October 7, 1999… I looked up at the most beautiful baby boy I have ever seen. He looked so healthy and husky.. broad shoulders just like his dad. He weighed in at 8lbs 4oz!! WOW my daughter was only 6lbs 11oz.. I was so proud.

They whisked me away to recovery-him to the nursery to be checked out. I had to wait in recovery for two hours before they would take me to my room and I would be able to see him again. That was the longest two hours of my life. All the nurses down there kept telling me how pretty he was. I was so proud.

All the things that they were worried about his blood sugar level… my heart.. seemed to be going okay. I held that baby boy in my arms and I do not remember (other than my daughter being born) ever feeling so happy and content.

He is almost five months old now. We have had a few problems he was admitted into Childrens Hospital with RSV.. In general though, he is healthy and happy baby. I am so grateful to have him and every single day brings on more joys and tears. It feels like an adventure. I cant wait to see what he will do next. I hope that my story brings hope to those of you who are having problems with your pregnancys. I thank God everyday for blessing me with BOTH of my children.
