Philip's Story ..Part Two
If you missed Part One here it is.
On April 19th I became the luckiest women in the world. After 27 hours of labor and 4 hours of pushing and a csection I had the most beautiful little boy. Philip was born three weeks early and weighed 7'12 and was 21 inches long. Philip seemed to be healthy and we were able to go home after 4 days when I was released from the hospital. We went home and did the silly things a parent does. And yes I have pictures. Gosh he was a beautiful baby.
My first time changing his diaper at home. Just the little things mean so much now looking back. I had no idea that was all about to change in a matter of days.
I am so glad I did not know he was so sick in the first days of his life. To be honest I look at these pictures and it is hard for me. I get this feeling of...How is the world did this little baby boy who looked so perfect get so sick and end up with over 16 brain operations, strokes and on and on. So for now..I will focus on...how sweet and precious he is. My sweet baby boy. Perfect in every way. Then and Always.
