Sep 14, 2005
I just wanted to
update my info. I gave birth to our Healthy Reversal Baby boy,
Timothy Aaron on Sept 14, 2005. He is now a healthy and active 5
year old and the light of my life. I again must Thank you Dr. Perez
and Dr. Levy for if you had not preformed my reversal I would not
have this precious boy now
Welcome Timothy Aaron
Sept 14, 2005
I had my reversal in November of 2003. My husband Chuck & I are
expecting our 1st reversal baby on September 22, 2005. He will be
our 5th child. Chuck & I both would like to thank Dr. Perez &
Dr. Levy for making it possible for us to have little Timothy Aaron
our Lord always be with you.
Well, I am back from my BIG journey to Rio Bravo. Everything went
really well. Not to say I wasn't scared because I was! I was so
scared that if my DH said lets go home on the way into the OR I
would have hopped up & left.
We got to the hospital Friday night and we met Monika & Debby. They
took Monika in at 7 Saturday morning & I went right after her at 9.
I remember Dr. Levy putting the sleepy meds into my IV and nothing
until they were almost done. My husband said I was talking during
the surgery but I don't remember it. When they first put me under I
kept telling Dr. Levy I was terrified of dying on the table & he
told me not to worry, I wasn't going anywhere & I told him it didn't
matter anyway because I was in Jesus' hands. I don't remember that
either. I do remember waking up asking Chuck (my husband) if that
was him standing over me & asking if they were done yet. Then I
remember singing Victory In Jesus and humming Amazing Grace, but I
thought I was doing that in my head and Chuck said it was aloud &
Dr. Levy even asked if it was Amazing Grace I was singing.: )
I got back to my room somewhere right around 11 and @ 12 Chuck said
Dr. Levy's brother was there & going to bring him & 2 other hubby's
out for lunch so I rested some then. Dr. Perez had told Chuck when I
was in the OR it was up to him & God now because I have 8 inches on
either side & there is no reason I can't have more!
It seemed to take a long time for me to get the feeling back in my
legs but having never had an epidural before I don't know how long
it normally takes. Around 4 I had spilt my water on my bed, it fell
off the bedside table & was all over the foot of the bed...But I
felt nothing! The nurses were very nice. They do their best to
communicate. I almost forgot about a half an hour after the surgery
the OR nurse came in with this little bottle, it looks like an old
fashioned medicine bottle & she kept talking to me in Spanish &
pointing to me & then to the bottle. Well, I thought they were pills
to take & was going to take them but I wasn't sure why she had the
pills in a bottle so I motioned her to put them on the end table.
BOY am I glad I didn't take them. They were the clamps that were on
my tubes!!!! Chuck found this extremely funny. He said I have had
them in me for 9 yrs & wanted them out of me so bad & was ready to
put them back into my body. I'm glad he found humor in it! YUCK!!!!
I got discharged on Sunday morning & we went back top McAllen via
Progresso. If any of you can ever go early & go to Progresso you
really should it was quite an experience. We flew home on Monday
night and now I am just resting. DH won't let me do a thing. Have a
great day & thank you to everyone for your prayers.
