OUR ANGEL Devin
Where to start? We are the Kellys. Married Oct 2008 after trying for about 3 years for a baby, found out 2 days after our wedding we got our wish. A gift from God is what we called him.
We went to every appointment and every meeting even read books and magazines as to how to be better parents. We started having a couple health issues at 6 months, Jamie found out she had gestational diabetes and the doctor said that it may be diet controlled. So I (David) being the cook decided I would cook and fix her eating habits. We where doing everything right. My sugars wound up being great and we did well.
We learned our baby boy was still gaining weight rather quickly at 34 weeks was approx 8 pounds. My blood pressure started to rise and doctors where testing me for toxemia and pre eclampsia. All test came back negative, from what they could see our baby boy was fine.
We got our c section date for 7-16-2009. Had a couple almost along the way. My mucus plug dropped and then what I thought was my water breaking at 38 weeks. Doctors were delivering me at 39 weeks. I went for my final visit on 7-15 the day before surgery and the doctors stated they heard a faint heart beat or what could be my pulse but it didn't look good.
They waited from 830 am until 2pm to deliver our baby c section. He was stillborn. We never got a chance to hear our baby cry or kiss his lips, not even look in his eyes. None of this seems fair to us after waiting so long for him the day before the day he would be laying in our loving arms he passed away.
WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO US? We were so ready to bring him home and instead we had to bury our baby boy. Devin David Kelly
