My wife Cindy’s water broke early one morning in April 2014, while I was out of state on business. She was only 26 weeks into the pregnancy. To Cindy’s credit, she crawled to the bathroom in the early morning hours and drove herself to our local hospital while she experienced contractions. However, our local hospital was unable to care for a premature child born at this stage of gestation, so they transported her to a neighboring hospital which had the capability to hopefully save her life.
Cindy is a real trooper. She is a special woman who has a heart of gold and many wonderful motherly qualities. She is giving to others to the core, the love of my life. She worked hard to project a positive outlook through all that was occurring, but on too many occasions, she was brought to tears and brokenness due to her concerns over the survival of our daughter, Caitlyn.
After every attempt was made to keep Caitlyn in the womb and while introducing steroids to help develop her lungs, concerns arose that Cindy may develop an infection that would be passed on to Caitlyn, so doctors decided to conduct an emergency C-section and Caitlyn was born three months and three days early weighing just 2.4 lbs.
