Dustin was born on Saturday morning, April 15, 1989 the day after his daddy's birthday. He was my first son after two daughters. I had my tubes tied also. It was a joyous fun time. Enjoyed a few days in the hospital. The day we were getting ready to leave, his pediatrician said the nurses in the nursery were concerned about whether he had a heart murmur. His doctor suggested we take home a heart monitor for two months just for safety measures. I wanted to, but I let my husband make the choice. He chose not to take home a heart monitor.
I took it for granted. The doctor expressed his concern about his heart and suggested precautions that was not "required." I took for granted I would never lose a child. So I let my husband choose, meaning I would accept his choice. He's the leader of our home. Maybe I trusted God more than taking my baby for granted. I just had my tubes tied! I was done. My family was complete! We didn't take the heart monitor home....really? Later it will be a choice regretted.
To be continued!
