Here I am!

I was born February, 1998 and I weighed in at 6lbs. 5ozs. I have dark hair, all my sibling were born with hair. After my mom went to the hospital she was in labor for a long time about 10 hours. I wasn't coming and she didn't dialate so they gave her medicine to help her dilate didn't work. My little heart didn't like all of this and it started to show stress on the baby heart monitor. So my mom was preped for a c-section. And about an hour later I was born, I did ok for a couple of hours but then the nurses called my doctor back to the hospital, I was having trouble with every 10th breath. They put me on oxygen and then the doctor noticed some other problems with my hands and my heart. So he called the doctors at Primary Childrens Medical Center in Salt Lake City Utah. And after a talking with them, it was decided that I needed to be transported to Salt Lake to Primary Childrens (abbr: PCMC). And of course it was a severe snow storm so I was taken by ambulance, it was too cold for the helicopter. Papers were signed by my mom and pictures were taken by the EMTs that run the ambulance. PCMC sent their own ambulance up to get me because their ambulance carries special equiptment for children & infants. I was put in a glass incubator and off we went away from my mom. She couldn't leave the hospital yet, she had complications after I was born.

  1. thanks for visiting Vera's site. I see you are starting the journal journey - yes it helped me so much in coming to terms with Vera's condition. It fills me with such hope to see Sabrina at birth and now at 11 years. What a journey you must have had!
