Some of you may have seen my post about “Bring Your Child to Work Day” on Thursday…
Wednesday afternoon, my son, Caleb, (age 12) complained of severe stomach pain over a 6 hour period and about 8PM that night, I decided I needed to take him to ER and suspected he may have appendicitis. But I knew my birth client (whose due date was Wednesday) was being induced at Baptist Hospital of Southeast Texas Thursday morning, so we headed to their ER just in case he was admitted. Turns out that was a very good plan as I would have never made her birth otherwise!
Caleb was admitted after appendicitis was confirmed around 2AM Thursday morning. I texted my client later that morning that we were on the 4th floor, and I would do everything in my power to be present for her delivery. I spent the morning going back and forth between the 3rd and 4th floors and was there when Caleb was wheeled into surgery close to 12:30….mamma was at 9cm, so I was just a LITTLE stressed!
She delivered at 1:58PM and Caleb came out of surgery at 2:10. I had promised him I would be there when he came out of surgery, so I ran downstairs as soon as he came out (my best friend was in the waiting area and let me know as soon as she heard from the doctor). I spent some time with him and then went back to my client since he was still out from the anesthesia.
It was most certainly an exciting day, but I’m SOOOO glad I was able to keep my commitments to my son and my clientCongratulations Toni and Chad! He’s beautiful!!!!
