Brief recap of my story: DS#1 didn't breathe after birth. I got to watch them doing CPR on him. I have crystal clear memories of all of that. Awful. (He is perfect now, no worries!) After Lew (DS#2) was delivered via c/s, I fell apart, sobbing. I was making my whole body shake with my sobs. So they sedated me. I was awake, but I have no memory of Lew's first couple of hours. The doc didn't have any choice, though, if he wanted to be able to finish the surgery!
I just discovered that XH took a 14 second video of Lew in the OR. It was after he had been cleaned up and they were doing a thorough check of him. And he was crying. I remember him crying as he first came out, which is what set me off into my sobs. I am so thrilled that there is a video of that sound. And a video capturing the relaxed atmosphere, which was completely lacking in my first delivery. I have been sobbing happy tears watching those 14 seconds again and again.
(I would share it, but there is full frontal nudity, and I am not comfortable putting that on the internet!)
