My son Brayden Gary Olson was supposed to come into this world in Septemeber of this year. Our pregnancy was progressing along and nothing seemed out of ordinary. One night I experienced headaches and vomiting, blurred vision, and swollen feet. I called the emergnecy room at 26 weeks 6 days and they told me too go in. How was I too know in one night my world would change. My son was fighting for his life in my and I had no idea I had pre eclampisa. I had never been diagnosed with high blood presssure and up until now I felt great. We went to the er where I found myself siging papers to have an emergency c section to get my peanut out before we both lost our lives. After growling hours of waiting we were on the table and he was delievered. As I saw him laying on the table all my heart wanted to do was reach out and hold my baby boy but I knew I couldnt. A mother feels hopeless when her son is in arms length and there is nothing she can do. The doctors rushed me out and then rushed him up to the NICU where he is now making milestones each day in hopes that one day he will come home. That is my sons story. He is a fighter and he will never stop. He just wanted to see the world a little early.
