Mikie’s birthday!!! While in the recovery room on the 16th I talked to Cher. I was so concerned that about Mikie’s birthday cake that I had ordered. Cher offered to pick it up for me. We were able to have birthday cake on Mikie’s birthday !
I was able to see Kye in the NICU for the 1st time. This sweet precious little baby who I could not hold, touch or even talk to was ours. I had to stand there and just look at him. Never in my life did I ever think we would be standing there looking at our new born son who was 10 weeks early. My heart was completely broken. All of the ideas I had on how I wanted things to go and how wonderful it would be were just completely broken. You carry this child inside you for so long. You bond with them. You are so used to feeling them move inside you and all of a sudden it’s completely taken away in a blink of an eye.
Once we get back to the room Dr. Cone came by to check on me. He was completely amazed and in awe that I was alive. He was not on call the 16th so that is why Dr.Ball did the c-section. He said that in his 25 years of practicing he has only heard of a ruptured uterus twice. Both times were not one of his patience. One of these women did not make it. Dr. Cone said that I formed a blood clot after my uterus had ruptured. He said “we got lucky and some one was looking out for me and not ready for me to go yet.” I could have bled to death is what he said. I did however bleed quite a bit internally but because my body clotted long enough for them to do the surgery Kye and I were saved. It is all because of GOD. He was not ready to see us leave this earth. Nor did he want Mikie to lose his entire family in a split second. I saw Dr. Cone every day while I was in the hospital and he continued to be amazed and stressed the issue that we were alive.
