My son was born in June of 1994. I seized in labor and delivery after the dr broke my water in his office after hours.
That morning, my bp was high and protein was in my urine. My previous visit, I had forgotten my urging sample and the nurse told me not to worry about it and did no check...Bp high and it had been since early May, late April...along with severe stomach pain...bottles of tums and blinding headaches with flashers.
My son was born an emergency, on the labor and delivery bed in the OR while I was unresponsive. Matt was born without a heartbeat and 0 score.... I laid on life support and after recitation he did too. I seizure done final time while trying to remove my breathing support. That was a big one. I laid unresponsive even to high pain tests. My husband was told I may be brain dead....tests showed brain activity so I was kept alive trying to come back. My son also seizured, later to be discovered to be over ventilated..... No one understands my story, or my constant worry or my son's ability.
He will be 20 in June and doing well in college....but what a lifetime of battling ADHD and fear.
Anyone else like me?
