Miracles Blog ~ Life's Little Miricles

Photobucket

Welcome to my project



Thank you for stopping by my blog today to read about my tiny miracle.  In 1983 my son was born.  What we had hoped would be a big healthy baby, turned out to be a big healthy baby with a few problems. 

My son was born two days late after three days of being in labor.  Because my son was so large, it caused serious complications during birth.   I ended up having an emergency C-section, but not until the damage had already been done.  When the doctor told me I was going to have a c-section, he told me that my baby’s heart had slowed, his lungs were in danger, and he was stuck.  They had tried using forceps, and he was still stuck.

So right then, in the delivery room the doctors did an emergency c-section.  I was waken several hours later by a team of nurses and doctors who were all telling me they were taking my son to another state by ambulance and I was not allowed to go because of my surgery.  The doctor told me my son had some problems with his lungs, but more importantly, they had fractured his skull in delivery.  Thankfully, I found out a few days later is was not bad because babies heads are so soft.  

He spent a week in NICU.  I have very few pictures of him in this first week of his life because I was not there. I was not even allowed to travel to go get him because of the surgery.  He was a week old before I finally got to hold my new son.

Now… almost 30 years later, my son, who had a rough start in his life has a beautiful daughter of his own.  My son, and his wife had a beautiful daughter in December of 2010.  She is now a little over a year old and just the cutest thing.  However, this little angel was born a month early and was spent just shy of a week in the hospital herself. While she too had a rough start in life, she is a very healthy and active young lady.  

Because there have been two beautiful miracles, I decided to highlight both my son and my granddaughter.  I split my page in half, the top half done in a baby blue and the bottom in a baby pink.  I am not a person who does a lot of embellishments on my scrapbook pages because they do not fit into the scrapbook page.  I am still toying with the idea of what type of words to add that work for both births.  I have tried several and none of them really worked for what I thought I wanted.  So, for now, I have just the two pictures and a few embellishments.
