friends...i cannot wait5 to show you photos of our baby girl. She is perfect. I, however, nearly died yesterday.
I was in excruciating pain after the birth in one spot and my blood pressure crashed at 7 pm last night. The nurse pulled the code blue button in my room and ran to get help.
people came running in and I was in excruciating pain. Excruciating. My bp was 63/34 and the doc said I was going into SVT. My heart couldn't handle the stress and massive internal hemmorhage was suspected.
It is thought that baby provided enough pressure on the uterine hematoma (not even near the previous csection scar) to keep me from bleeding out the last months of pregnancy. Had she been born vagin*ally there would have been no way my doctor would have known it even existed.
I crashed on the way to surgery and now have coursing through my veins half of my bodys capacity of someone elses blood. A wonderful stranger.
I heard "we r losing her" more times than I care to count. Scott and I said good bye. He was sobbing and I was in shock. I kept staring at our baby girls new clothes and wanted so badly to be with Scott and watch her grow. During the 2 hoursof surgery the only sound in the waiting room was prayers of petition to our God.
there was so much blood and not enough time that I was given a hysterectomy...all but one ovary. There is so much more to tell you but we have on our hands a beautiful 7 pound 12 ounce baby girl...Phoebe Ellis. Pictures to come as soon as I can figure out Scotts phone.
Thank you God for sparing my life.
Thank you is too inadequate a prayer.
