The attending doctor in the NICU and Lily’s NICU nurse came into my room, telling me that Lily was not doing well and that they needed my consent to put a catheter into her Umbilical Cord and they were going to Intubate her.
I remember getting the phone call. I was at work and stepped outside once my phone started to ring. I was hit with the hot oven air on a mid-June summer day in Redding. “We have your C-Section scheduled!” they proclaimed.
