Friday ,last day of April, i was scheduled to work that day but at 530 AM i began having problems.I had noticed my placenta previa had me bleeding really badly again,so i lay back down after telling hubby for maybe about 3 mins, but it was still really bad so i go to the hospital.They look me over, im there till appx 10am.They say i should call my portland doctor as soon as i get home,which i did.I also tried to get some food while i waited for them to call me back after i left them a message.I get some pasta and await the call.When i hear back from them they tell me they want me down in portland immediately;portland is 4 hrs away from us and with the financial problems we had been having we had no idea how id get down there.Happily the docs set up for the hospital in town to drive me by ambulance all the way down.So i get some things packed up and hubby drives me to the hospital.I get set up in the ambulance and i cried because i had to leave my hubby and james behind.I had no idea whether id be in portland for a couple nights or for 2 months until Christopher was born.
It was a long trip down,the guys in the ambulance were nice and talked with me occasionally,bought me a bottled water on the way.I look out the back window trying to see where i am but couldnt tell most of the time,then i get to portland,i was so glad to see it;i could finally get out of the ambulance.
They check me in and bring me up to the ob surgery floor as a precautionary and they hook up monitors for christopher checking his heart rate and such,he was perfect the whole time.During all this time i was still bleeding sometimes heavy sometimes almost nothing.They move me to a regular room for maybe about an hour then move me back to the ob surgery room.They were expecting to have to do a csect very soon so they wanted me there already.
I slept in that room for the night and the next day they keep check on me,i hadnt eaten since 10Am the previous morning and asked a couple times if i could have some food which i couldnt...not even water.About 12 pm they do an ultrasound to check on my placenta and on christopher,christopher was still fine,me, i was still bleeding. Within 1/2 an hour i think it was the docs came into my room saying they will be doing a csect by 2 pm.Christopher is better out than in they said.It felt like no time at all and i was in the surgery room getting prepped to have my baby.I was scared,i had no idea what was going to happen,if christopher was going to be ok,i was all alone.I get numbed out and they begin working and at 1:54 pm Christopher was born,16 inches long and 4lbs 4 oz.He was fine,i was so relieved.I heard him cry and i began crying and they bring him over to me to see him then they take him to the NICU to care for him.
I go to my regular room and call my hubby and tell him that Christopher was born.My mind was at ease..my baby was safe.
The reason i say about the miracle? Christopher was healthy yes,i was worried about him being preemie, but the biggest reason that he is our miracle is because after months of all kinds of financial difficulty,losing our furniture, almost losing our electric,my hubby awaiting hearing from a job,having no hot water...after all those horrible times the day Christopher was born everything turned around,my hubby starts a new job,people started saying yes to help us instead of no,we got our stove back.All this right after Christopher being born.Hes still healthy,hes doing very well,they speak of moving him out of the NICU soon because hes doing so well.When we finally get to take him home, the miracle he gave us will let us give him all he deserves.
Our mini miracle,Christopher Ryan.

A smile suits you best.(CCS)
