Today, Felix turns six. At 1.53pm, six years ago, Felix was born via emergency c section after a Code Blue was called and I was being revived. My epidural had been inserted incorrectly and my entire body was paralysed. My heart and lungs shut down. Doctors weren’t sure at this stage what was happening or if I’d survive. As my baby boy was delivered, his Mama was resuscitated and placed in an induced coma. Both his Mummy and Daddy weren’t present for his birth. He came into the world to doctors and missed his first cuddles, the ‘it’s a boy’ celebrations. Wide eyed, he entered the world about to change mine. 26 hours later I met my guy. Some good people made sure Felix kept his Mama that day, so he could celebrate his sixth birthday with a Ma and Pa who love him to bits. I am grateful. Today we celebrate you my boy. Your very first party. Let’s go.
