Riley Isaac James' Birth Story
When we arrived at the hospital, I was taken in right away. My boobs were throbbing and my womb felt as if it were going to explode. The doctor took tests and confirmed that I had to have the baby straight away or the bubba might have serious damage. I was worried sick! They told me they had to make my water break, and when they did (there was a lot of water), they took me into the room and performed a C-section.
After about 20 minutes of pain, they handed me little baby Riley Isaac James. Then they said that there was another baby! I was almost in tears. But the second baby had a lung disease and they had to perform an operation right away. But the more little Annaleah Rose fought to live, the more she lost pulse.
We got the terrible news that Annaleah had died and we were in tears. Though we didn't even know about Annaleah to begin with, it still touched my heart that she had to leave us so soon. But she will always be with us and we will always remind Riley about his little twin sister Annaleah.
RIP, honey. We love you.
