One the scariest moments I have faced as a father and a husband.
One the scariest moments I have faced as a father and a husband. Watching your wife, pregnant with twins, being whisked away for an unplanned, early c-section…created an anxious tension in my heart.
The morning started at 3:30am being awaken with the tense urge to get up and get to GHS as quick as possible. Once arriving, wondering what would happen to Sarah holding the twins at 32 weeks and 5 days, the unplanned c-section moved from fear to reality. Your life stops for a moment in time wondering how this moment had escalated to a level of anxiousness only a parent and partner would understand.
On the other side of the door stands 20 plus individuals with whom you will trust the lives of your wife and twin boys. Multiple teams of highly trained and highly decorated medical professionals prepared to spring into action, each person with a unique job, purpose, and mission.
You hope the love you feel for your wife and children you are entrusting in these 20 plus individuals match an exceeded level of commitment to not only the best care, but the safest outcome. You hope that when you are allowed to walk through those doors, the preparation will provide your twin boys to be safely delivered and your lovely wife to be returned with a smile on her face. While sitting by Sarah’s side…I watched the multiple teams of 20 plus medical professionals deliver the twins and take care of Sarah. The room was calm, expeditious, and comforting…uniquely positioned inside this small surgical suite.
As I write these words, tears flow from my face in complete gratitude…the medical team on the sixth floor of GHS were not only unbelievable, but also extremely calm in the way provided the best possible care to my loved ones! Sarah is safe! George is safe! Henry is safe! It was all because of a team of individuals turned a high-risk delivery of twins into happy family of five! I am forever grateful to now join the many families who have and will graduate from the NICU club. The road ahead is long, but those 20 plus individuals laid the foundation for the road to begin! Thank you!!!! #twinslife
