My Story

On the morning of April 19th,2010 I felt something wrong. My baby boy wasn't moving around or kicking like he usually did.  I went to the hospital, and they did a non-stress test and an ultrasound. The doctors told me I was scheduled for an emergency c-section at 3pm if Liam didn't come. Liam was lying on his umbilical cord and only had less than 1cm of amniotic fluid. They started me on Pitocin and Liam couldn't handle the mini contractions so they took me off it. Then they started me on Cerividal and he couldn't handle that either. His heart rate was going from the 140's down to 70. They immediately took me off and put me on oxygen. They rescheduled my c-section for 9pm. Liam Matthew was born vaginally on April 19th,2010 at 7:17pm. He only weighed 1lb 7oz. My little fighter was immediately taken away to be in the NICU. Liam had an undeveloped lung, a hole in his heart and his right heart valve wasn't developed. They placed him on oxygen and a feeding tube. He gradually started to gain away and was thriving. He went up to 2lbs. The doctors told me it'd be best to do a noninvasive surgery on his heart as soon as possible because his heart rate kept decelerating. I gave them permission, and Liam's heart rate was stabilized after the surgery. He become more alert, could somewhat cry and squeeze my finger. They meshed his heart and ballooned his right heart valve. He seemed to be doing so well. 3am on May 2nd,2010 I got a call that I needed to come to the hospital as soon as possible. Liam's heart rate was decelerating down to the 60's. They didn't even give him a day to live the day he was born. Liam fought long and hard for 13 days. I held him in my arms. I told him it's okay to let go if you need to. I told him I loved him, was proud of him and he was my little angel. On the night of May 2nd, 2010 at about 8:39pm Liam earned his angel wings. Not a second goes by that I don't think about him. Liam was my little fighter and now he is my little angel. I love you so much my sweet baby boy. Rest In peace.
