I feel quite vunerable sharing the next picture as it’s VERY personal and I do not look my best🙊 However I feel it is important to show the after effects of an emergency C-section and the reality of what had happened to us.
You might be thinking that this is way too deep for E to look back on when she’s older, but I disagree. Someday she will be a mum too and it’s important to see that giving birth is not like the movies!
Similar to yesterday’s picture but this time it was our first family picture. Not quite what I had in mind, but at least she was alive. At this point I had been stitched up but had lost so much blood that I had to have an oxygen mask with me. I don’t even remember who even took this picture!
Something that I remember so clearly was that the doctor’s wheeled E into my room and everyone was looking at me, for a reaction and I faked it. I was high as a kite and I didn’t have my glasses. All I could think was “where the bloody hell is she?”
This memory is imprinted in my brain forever. You would never be able to forget the first family picture ever taken.
