05-20-2014: When after inducing, laboring, and contracting for hours and everything hits the fan (code blue, “he’s going down! He’s going down!”, and an emergency C-Section), I highly recommend a partner like my husband. He stood in front of me and made eye contact and showed me how to breathe as they saved my son from losing out on being the only perfect thing.
I also highly recommend my doctor, who I didn’t always click with… But clearly do now. She made a decision that I truly believed saved my son’s life (whether or not that’s true).
Here is my son, Josol Patrick Corbin with assorted family members: Patrick, me, Lolo (my dad), Yaya (my mom) and Lola (my step-mom).
You can tell he already admires his father and he surely should.
