Woman wakes from coma to baby’s cry

A mother Shelly Cawley who slipped into coma after the birth of her child had miraculously woken up after the she heard her baby’s cries. The family of the woman thought they were going to say their last goodbye to the woman as they were escorted through the hallways of North Carolina Hospital. Her blood pressure was dangerously low (60/40, doctors later told the family) and her heart rate was soaring (more than 180 beats per minute). Cawley was hooked up to what doctors called “the last-chance ventilator,” a machine pumping air into her lungs with such force that it rattled her hospital bed with each artificial breath, her husband, Jeremy Cawley, said. They were willing to try anything to give this mom a reason to live.  So they stripped the baby down and put her skin to skin on her mother’s chest.  They wanted her to feel, smell and hear the baby giving her a reason to fight. And they thought Rylan Grace Cawley — just hours old — might be the only one who could help. They had to tickle and pinch the baby a bit to get her to cry so her mother could hear her. When the baby did, her mother’s vitals jumped . e said he was told it may have given her the strength she needed to push through. A week later, Shelly Cawley woke up and met her baby daughter. Even though in a coma the mother still knew her little girl was there and that she needed her.  What a heart warming story.

Mama Helps the Baby Learn

Here is a wonderful video that shows just how much mothers are alike whether human or animals.  This little Polar Bear cub can not swim yet.  This polar bear family was living together.  Having fun. Learning new things. Growing up.  The little cub playing and romping just like baby children do.  And just like mothers do her mom is watching.  Watching her every move.  But staying just far enough away to let her make mistakes.  That is when it happens.  In a brief moment she fell into deep water. In that very instant the mom does what every mom would do and then you must watch to see what happens.  You expect her to grab her and pull the lttle cub right out of water.  But instead she is right there so nothing happens but allows the cub to save herself.  Would you, as a mother, jump in and just save your child or allow her to find her own way out of the mess she got herself into?  What a wonderful display of a relationship between a mother and her child.  Mother “Kurumi” & “Milk”(female/4month old) what great family.

A Couple Adopts A Family of Babies

The Justices spent more than 3 years trying to have a baby.  After contemplating expensive fertility treatments, they decided to adopt. After they met the birth mother and planned the adoption, the story took an unexpected turn. “We went to a meeting where she had an ultrasound and found there was not one baby but three babies,” said adoptive parent Amy Justice. Instead of adopting just one child, the Justices were adopting three. Hannah, Joel and Elizabeth were born in May. Then they were thrown another curveball. A week after the triplets were born, Amy found out she was pregnant with not one, but two babies. A boy and girl are due in January. They say they are excited, but also say that “God has a great sense of humor.” How wonderful that this couple that wanted a family could welcome not only one baby but in the end they have a family of 5.

Police Officer Attends Wedding of Baby He Saved

Officer Joe Barka has worked on the Yonkers Police Department for the past 45 years.  Recently Officer Joe was able to share the day with a baby he saved some 20 years ago.  Back in 1993 Officer Joe was called to house where a baby had stopped breathing.  Grabbing the baby from the parents the officer checked for vitals and finding none he jumps into his cruiser with his partner and heads to the hospital doing CPR the whole way.  When he met the parents at the hospital he was able to tell them that the baby crying that they heard was their little daughter.  Ever since, this officer has treated this little girl like one of his own.  He never forgets a birthday or even Christmas.  But now it was here time to remember.  She invited the officer and his wife to her wedding as a guest of honor.  Even though the family moved to Buffalo they have kept in touch.  What a wonderful relationship these people have. Without each other their lives would never be the same. Great job Officer Barka.

A Puppy’s Best Friend

Here is a great video for all you pet lovers.  You don’t even have to like dogs to like this video.  Many people will tell you that sometimes the main reason a pet is taken to the pound is because of the arrival of a baby in the house.  This video will show you how babies and puppies can grow up together. It is so sweet watching the baby and the dog interact.   How sweet to watch the little one playing with the puppy and to watch the puppy playing with the baby but yet being so careful. As you watch you see the baby grow and the puppy too.  This video reminds us that there is room in the family for a dog and a baby.  Watch this video as the baby grows up and the puppy is always there to take care of the baby. Love animal videos and I love baby videos.  What could be better puppies and babies.

How a Blind Mom Sees Her Unborn Baby

Here is another story that is not exactly news but it is a great story.  It is  the story of Tatiana who is a mother that is waiting on the birth of her child.  Huggies diapers created this commercial to tell her story.  Tatiana is a mother like many soon to be moms.  She is looking forward to the birth of her chilld.  She has everything ready and is just waiting for Murilo to come into the world.  The big difference here is that Tatiana is BLIND.  She will never see her baby so her doctor did her sonogram and then uses a 3D printer to create an image that she can touch to “SEE” her baby.  He first describes the baby to her.  We wonder why he is he is describing the baby and why the mother is not looking at the monitor.  Then we figure it out.  What a wonderful gift for this woman to expereience to be able to see her baby before it is born. What a great idea.  Thank you to Huggies for sharing this touching video.

A Mother’s Dreaming Baby

We loved these clever images created by Adele Enersen of her daughter, a series entitled “Mila’s Daydream”, while she was taking her afternoon nap. It may not be news but with Mother’s Day coming up this weekend we wanted to share the joy of one mom with everyone.  How many times have you looked down upon your child and imagined things like this.  Just take a few minutes to sit and enjoy the pure peace and beauty of a sleeping child.  How clever and precious this is.  They are only little for a short time so to have this to remember it is priceless.  Thanks for taking the time to create this beautiful little video.  There is nothing like being a mom and to all those moms out there… Happy Mother’s Day.

Woman wakes from Coma

A tragic accident in East Tennessee could never be called good news.  That is not where this story ends.  Sharista Gailes was in a horrible accident that put her in a coma.  Sharista was 5 months pregnant at the time.  The doctors told her family that she would probably never wake up.  One month later she gave birth prematurly. Her little boy weighed less than 2 pounds.  He is now growing and getting bigger.  Last week her family got a call with great news.  She was awake from her coma.  She had opened her eyes and could even squeeze her hand.  Her family even watched her amazingly as she followed with her eyes a picture of her little baby.  What a joy.  What a miracle.  The doctors don’t know quite yet just how much brain activity she will get back and how much she will be able to do but this is truly a miracle times two.  Let’s all just pray for this little boy and his mama that they will be able to grow stronger together.

This Grandma is a huge help

Emily Jordan and her husband always wanted to have the same thing that every couple wants, to start a family.  As they made plans something terrible was discovered.  Emily found out that she had cervical cancer at a young age facing a radical hysterecomy.  Emily Jordan underwent that  radical hysterectomy in 2010. She thought she and her husband would never have their own children.  The doctors were able to save ovaries. Then her mother made a surprising offer. She offered to carry their baby for them.  Who would ever imagine a 50+ year old being able to carry a child with no problems.  She was very healthy so they said it would be possible for her to do this. It was the most wonderful gift that she could give her daughter and her husband.  The love they have for this little baby is the most important thing for this Grandma.  She knows that her role in this was to deliver a healthy baby and to be the best grandma she could be. She said that this was not hard that she would even offer to do it again.  Now the fun time of spoiling this little one. Great job Grandma. Thank you to Patricia M for bringing us this story.
