Dakota’s Story, Part 3

I think the memory of waking up and seeing Tony standing next to the bed holding Dakota will be with me for a very long time. I was so happy and relieved to see them. I asked if she was okay, and how much she weighed and all those important questions and then asked what the hell had just happened.

Tony explained to me that Dakota’s heart rate was decreasing because she had the cord wrapped around her neck twice. All the pushing in the world wasn’t going to get her out of there safely, so they decided a c-section was the best option. I am so thankful I live in a place where we have the technology and knowledge to deal with events such as this.

So incredibly thankful.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
