Garibay Soup: Rylie May was born today

Rylie May was born today

I woke up this morning expecting to be able to watch the birth of my new baby cousin. I went curves, came home and took a shower, got the kids ready and packed our day bag for a day of hospital. I got there and everyone was in the waiting room. The kids and I spent some time in with Jill and her labor was going smoothly and she was numb!

I walked out of her room and not much longer there was a rush of nurses. My aunt Amy was in the hallway crying and I learned out that Rylie May's heart was dropping. It actually even stopped. I couldn't believe what was going on. The doctor that delivered Ella was Jill's doctor and I could see the panic in her eyes as she was running. They wheeled Jill out and everything happened so fast.

They did an emergency C-Section and Rylie May was in this world for an entire 4 minutes without taking a breath. Jill spent hours in recovery and Rylie was in the NICU with breathing tubes. This day that was supposed to be an exciting, joyful day turned out to be every mom's worst nightmare.

I think one of the saddest parts of today was watching my Aunt Amy (Jill's mom) sit there feeling so helpless. She just wanted to be with her daughter and she couldn't. I can't even begin to imagine how that would feel.

I finally got to see Jill at 6:30pm. She was in good spirits. I had already seen Rylie in the NICU and I felt horrible that I had seen her before Jill had. Jill told me how she actually felt the surgery and they ended up putting her to sleep. As I left the hospital I saw the doctor in the hallway and she told me that they had just removed the ventilators off of Rylie. She's breathing on her own!!

I know I'm reaching out for many prayers right now, but please pray for this precious new soul in this world who has had such a horrible start. I will post pictures once I get some.

As the mom of two former NICU babies- I can so relate to what your cousin is going through right now... My thoughts and prayers are with her.

I hope this encourages you-
