Freckles in April: Baby 2

Baby 2

Last night we went to dinner with my family. Before we had the chance to order, Baby 2 became unresponsive. Aaron called 911 while he turned blue and my dad tried to get my baby to breathe. Firefighters were there within minutes to take his limp frame from my hands and we had our first ambulance ride. A couple hours, some fever reducer, and a bag of saline later, Baby 2 was happily trying to rip the IV port out of his arm but I don't think I will ever forget those horrifying minutes when I thought he was dying in front of me.

Aaron spent last night in the hospital with Baby 2 and tonight it's my turn. Hopefully we'll be home tomorrow. But in the meantime, please keep my sweet little boy in your thoughts and prayers. It looks like he's got pneumonia and we've had trouble keeping fluids in him and his fever down today.

Mamas, hug your babies tight today. Life can change in a moment.

  6. That is freaky! Did you have any indication that he was sick like that beforehand?? I'm assuming if you were out to eat, he wasn't acting like it! At least you were out with Aaron and your parents... I can't imagine how I would react if I was home alone when something like that happened.

  7. Such a scary experience :( So sorry you had to go through that. NOTHING like seeing your baby go blue and thinking you could lose them. My heart feels your pain. I hope that he recovers fully very soon. Our prayers will be with you.

  9. You are in my thoughts. How frightening! I had to call 911 yesterday because my three year old disappeared. It's unreal how frantic you can get when you think something's going wrong with your child.

  10. Hope everything is ok with baby #2. I just found your blog through a link and noticed this was the last post so that's kinda scary. I was also born in April and have freckles...which sounds kinda stalker-ish but it's true :-)

  16. Sorry - I'm a blog stalker but I read your original blog and followed you here. As I started to read this post my heart dropped and I felt sick to my stomach, fearing the worst. You're all in my prayers for sure. So sorry you had to experience that.

  20. oh my goodness! i know this is late but i know how this feels. and it feels horrible. you're so right, life can change in a minute. one minute B's born all perfect and screamy, the next he's being rushed to the NICU for antibiotics and a week long stay. leaving the hospital not pregnant but without a baby is surreal and i wouldn't wish it on anyone. so glad all of our boys are fine now though! whew, being a mom is nerve wracking.
