Today is my baby girls twelfth Birthday! I can’t believe twelve years have passed since I gave birth to this beautiful girl!
Twelve years ago, she had a rough beginning. During the middle of a cesarean section, I coded (I had a cardiopulmonary arrest ) due to a reaction to the anesthesia I had just been given. Thankfully, they were able to get my heart started again, but not before the oxygen and blood flow was cut off from my baby. She spent two days in NICU with an I.V. in her head. By the Grace of God, we both made a fast recovery and was out of the hospital by day four.
This is the part where I would post the picture of her with the i.v in her head…she looked so pitiful, but since I am nearly 600 miles from home and our family album….I’ll have to make due with some of her baby pictures I have in online storage.
For twelve years, and I pray, for the rest of her life, she has been a very healthy girl. And every year that passes, she becomes even more beautiful; a fact that has her dad and I very nervous. I can’t believe in just two short years, she will be starting high school. *sigh*
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FAITH!! I love you so much, baby girl, and I’m so proud of you! =)
