my miracle baby...josh



on 04022009, i went to my gynae's clinic for a follow up checkup for my baby. appointment was at 12 plus.reached there and as usual long queue awaits.just before my turn, my gynae have to rush to the labour room to deliver a baby.that was about 1.30pm. i was like...sigh...so walter and i went to makan at the dome...they served great mushroom soup n garlic bread...mmmm...yummy....

came back to the clinic and i finally managed to see my gynae at 3 plus. the check up was not a favourable one...
1. baby was not growing for the last 3 weeks @ 2kg
2. water bag leaking
3. baby's heartbeat report was not satisfying

oops....my gynae asked me to admit myself for 2 nights for monitoring purpose... so, to cut the whole story short....i ended up in the operating theatre (ot) instead of the normal ward.it was an emergency case as baby's heartbeat was slowing down....before i was pushed into the ot....

1. gynae said " if baby stay in there one more day, sure die ...."
2. labour room nurse commented " kalau baby macam ini keluar pun tentu pucat dan tak menangis (in bahasa)"
3. mid wife said " wo pa pa (i'm scared-in mandarin)"

.......the voices of the negative world...........

i have mixture of feelings at that time. no words can describe my feelings. like a rojak thingy....fearful, ??, worry, ??, negative thoughts, ??... and etc...but.... at that particular moment of time, i strongly experienced HIS presence and PEACE. i know GOD will have the best plan for me...no matter what happen....

tiny baby josh was taken out safely. he was sent to the high dependency unit (hdu) for further check ups. everything was fine except for his temperature (not so stabilised). he was transferred to the nursery the following day.

my gynae's told me baby was taken out in the nick of time. there were no reasons being of the complications. the only possibility was the placenta.... baby was not absorbing the nutrients and oxygen....

today, we are living in a world of technology where we can enjoy many...many.. things. medically, many lives have been preserved due to the technology. yet, at times technology cannot provide us the answers and solutions.

as for my case, some people say i'm lucky, some people might say it's the technology. but i say, it's a miracle. a miracle from GOD. i thank GOD for preserving my baby's life.

PRAISE AND GLORY TO MY GOD!!

What a miracle!
I believe miracle is always happening around us, just that we are not aware of them most of the time.

God is a God that heals.

i believe doctors' discretion are important in such cases. i have a fren with the same symptons as mine. dr. said ok and she lost her baby. she had to deliver a dead baby.it's a heartbreaking news. i would not go to see my gynae if i dun have the follow up check up. i thank god for grace and mercy & his perfect timing. thank you all for the encouragement.
