Sweet 16 - Happy Birthday Lexi!

Sixteen years ago today I was giving birth to my second child.  It was actually labor day and also my step-father's birthday!  I am thankful that it was a holiday as that meant my husband was home.  I ended up having a seizure and stopped breathing.  Lexi was born about an hour later by emergency C-section as it turns out I was toxemic and had developed eclampsia.  As it was a second child it was not something that anyone was looking for - and my blood pressure had been normal.  Of course, I had been having lots of kidney infections, fevers and my vision had gone blurry a couple of times.  The doctor knew about everything but the blurred vision - and maybe that would have tipped him off that there was something else going on - so now I tell everything that is not normal!



Lexi ended up in Milwaukee Children's Hospital for 16 days as she had a seizure right after she was born.  They think that it was due to her lack of oxygen when I stopped breathing.  She has been fine ever since though!  And at 5'9", being born 4 weeks early didn't stunt her growth at all. . .


HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEXI!
