Our Blessing

Hello, My name is Crystal Cusack, I’m 24 years old and I was blessed with my beautiful daughter who is 3 months old named Abigail. During my pregnancy we knew that I was high risk due to my blood pressure issues, well by my 3rd trimester we were diagnosed with Preeclampsia. I did everything that I could to not have Preeclampsia, I was dieting, working out and even drinking plenty of water (which I do all those things already). Week of October 25th 2015 I was induced; we went in on October 27th 2015. As the nurses and doctors came in one by one hooking me up to all these machines, IV’S and magnesium I was starting to get scared. By October 29th 2015 at 5am I was already in 25 hours of labor. Without drinking or eating since October 25th my energy level was fading away. By 6am the doctor came in with some bad news, time was getting closer and my body wasnt taking it anymore, and by that time the doctor recommend an C-Section, the doctor gave me and my husband an hour to think and contact family. At this time, I was crying and scared but I know that I had to have faith in this. By 730am I was being wheeled into the OR where they started the process. By 8am my daughter was placed in my arms, breathing and smiling at me, I was so blessed to have a moment like that. I would like to reach out to others and let them know that they are not alone.
