On Friday, May 2nd, Karen's water broke, a month early
She was admitted to MCR Hospital in Loveland, CO
Medical staff explain to her that the contractions are causing the baby's heart rate to drop
Karen's sister Janie (my wife) and Karen's husband, Brian, sit by her beside
Karen reads positive affirmations of faith over their unborn baby
A nurse make some adjustments to the equipment that is monitoring the vitals of both Karen and the baby
The baby's heart rate continues to drop with each contraction
After some discussion, it's decided that the baby is in danger and an emergency ceserean is ordered.
Shortly thereafter, Karen is taken into surgery
10 minutes later, Jayden was brought safely into the world
Because the umbilicle cord was wrapped around Jayden's neck and body, he was having trouble breathing on his own
He bounced back and began breathing normally shortly after birth
Karen gets her first look at Jayden
Brian comforts Karen while she's in recovery
A new chapter begins!
