Benjamin Elijah Hildreth
My last and final update!!!
IT'S A BOY! Avren Benjamin Elijah Hildreth was born September 1st,
2009 by C-section. He weighed 7 pounds 1 ounce and was 18 inches
with brown hair and blue eyes. He is perfect!
The C section surgery was an experience I would not like to do
again. My uterus tore down to my cervix when Avren was born. When
they tried to stitch it closed, the area the tear was in was thin it
couldn't hold the sutures and kept tearing leading to excessive
bleeding. A blood match was ordered for a blood transfusion but
thank God, they were able to stop the bleeding and repair the tear.
I cant even describe in words the shaking, teeth chattering, and
cartoon feeling I had and the drop in blood pressure, but I wondered
if my son's first day of life here on earth would be my last day. It
was scary but we both made it and it helped to have such an amazing
OB doctor : ) Recovery is going well; as is nursing. No
infections thus far, and Avren was back up to his birth weight by
week one! Still a bit sore 3 weeks after surgery, but we are doing
great! I do have my hands VERY full with both of the TR babies
almost 11 months apart-this has to be similar to having twins! LOL!
I thank God that I am still alive and for the 5 children I have. My
journey is over and I couldn't be more complete, more grateful, and
in awe of God's miracles!
Dr Perez and Dr Levi.... Un Millon de Gracias. Las palabras no
pueden expresar mi gratitud.
- UPDATE! - Expecting again!
Another update to begin the New Year....
Landon is now 3 months old and the happiest baby ever! I thought
that my family was complete with four children; however, on New
Years Day I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. So I am
expecting my second child after tubal reversal surgery. My due date
is September 11, 2009. I am 6 weeks 4 days today.
So far, ectopic has been ruled out...and a gestational sac and yolk
sac have been confirmed. No baby or heartbeat have been confirmed as
of yet. Betas were 1800 on 01/10/09 and 6500 on 01/14/09. I'm a bit
apprehensive with this pregnancy so soon after birth, but couldn't
be more thankful.... or shocked....again.
I will update again soon when I know the outcome of this pregnancy.
Thank you Dr. Perez, times two!
Landon Isaac Hildreth
3rd 2008. After 14 hours of labor with no resolve, he was born by
C-section. He weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces, 20 inches long and
has blonde hair and blue eyes. He is gorgeous and perfect!
Thank you Dr.
Perez and Dr. Levi!
We are now 25 weeks pregnant with a little boy-he makes two girls
and two boys now, for our family. Perfect!
All of the blood work and ultrasounds have come out perfectly.
I will update more as his birthday becomes closer! At least 89 days
Just wanted to update since the miscarriage in July 2007. We just
found out in January that we again expecting. This was a COMPLETE
shock as I was on birth control pills to help shrink a cyst that I
had on my right ovary and that my husband was only on leave for 3
weeks from duty. I am still in complete shock!
It has been a pretty emotional and exhausting rollercoaster due to
the previous miscarriage, waiting for beta levels and ultrasound
results. My first ultrasound revealed nothing but a thickening in my
uterus, the second one revealed a gestational sac and yolk sac and
the third revealed our little one with a beating heart!
We are due September 2008.
Just an update....We miscarried on July 13th, 2007 and have an angel
in heaven too.
We traveled from Europe to Mexico to have our tubal reversal surgery
with Dr. Perez on April 24,2007. When I first started researching
doctors I came across Dr. Perez' website and laughed hysterically
with the thought of going to Mexico for such an important surgery. I
went ahead and moved on to researching other doctors. During my time
of research, I e-mailed my previous doctor who performed my tubal
ligation to see what she thought my outcome would be in regards to
tubal length (the famous question we all want to know before this
kind of surgery) and she had told me that she had done a thorough
job and burned my tubes FOUR times and thought that IVF would be the
best way for us to go at this point. I emailed a couple other
doctors with my post op report and was told the same thing-IVF was
the best option. My husband and I began to feel hopeless at this
point-but we kept praying for God to lead us to the right doctor.
I ran across Dr. Perez' website again and this time brought my
husband who had his turn laughing at the idea of going to Mexico for
surgery but I encouraged him to read the testimonies of other
patients. He was skeptical and a little nervous, but by the time he
had read them all, and more praying, he felt a bit more calm.
I decided to call Dr. Levy (Dr. Perez' assistant surgeon) and speak
with him. I had asked him what he thought my outcome would be after
being burned four times with the ligation and he said that they were
just doctors and they go in and do their jobs and the rest is not up
to them. That was the best answer I had received from all the
opinions. There were no false hopes, there were no lies or
guarantees. And I found this to be a humble and honest response.
With no claims to know everything just because someone is a doctor.
We knew we were to go to Mexico for surgery.
Certainly, we could have found a doctor on the east coast that would
be comparable in price (given that we spent so much on airfare from
Europe to Mexico) and could have spent less on airfare and more on
surgery if we had surgery on the east coast. But we knew that our
prayers had been answered and that God was leading us just like we
had asked of Him. When I told my family, they were
nervous and friends looked at us like we were crazy. But we kept
going. Kept praying. That is how God moves when you walk completely
by faith and others are in disbelief all around you even doctors
telling you a tubal reversal surgery just wont work.
The flight there was quite an enjoyable experience for my husband
and I and I was thankful to be able to sleep the moment we got to
the hospital. Dr. Levi's wife picked us up at the airport despite an
hour delay-she was still waiting. She was very kind. My only regret
is not speaking Spanish to be able to carry on casual conversation.
But it was an enjoyable experience, nonetheless.
The hospital was clean, the nurses know exactly what you need. So
the language barrier does not have any affect in regards to great
healthcare. Dr Levi was great and really took his time looking at
pictures of our babies and chatting with us. I was nervous for the
surgery and did end up having to be put to sleep. I woke up once and
asked what my tube lengths were and fell back to sleep. I woke up
again and asked where Dr. Perez was so I could look him in the eye
and tell him how grateful I was-but to my disappointment he had
already left. The 10 hour flight home was not as comfortable going
home as it was coming in, but we made it!
I ended up with 7-8 cm on both sides and that was our first miracle!
It still brings me to tears that God can take such pain and regret
of a tubal ligation and turn it into such joy! This journey has been
amazing, painful, joyous, scary, but through it all I have learned
You never know exactly how surgery and outcomes will go and it is
always best to put your faith in God rather than man when looking
for answers. It doesn't matter what your post op report and notes
say in regards to outcomes, tube lengths, or doctors. Step out and
move completely by faith even if your desires, outcomes and
expectations are not met in the way you would like. Again these are
just MY life lessons and I wish all of you considering tubal
reversal the best! And congratulations to all who are expecting!
Dr. Perez, I never got to thank you for performing our surgery. May
God bless you and keep you! He has given you such a wonderful gift
to restore the painful regret of tubal ligations that many of us go
through. Dr. Levi-you are wonderful and have such a wonderful way of
comforting others. To the many great nurses and
assistants.........THANK YOU! You are all wonderful!
Our second miracle is that we just found out we are pregnant! We are
due March 2008. Please pray for our child that everything goes well,
and is in the right place, and we carry to term a healthy happy
Stacey (27) and Scott Hildreth (26)
