Now This Is A Story All About How…

Now this is a story all about how

My insides got turned all around

And I’d like to take a minute to share with you

How life has been since our family last grew


I went to the hospital on the seventh of May

Thinking that I’d have a son and soon be walking away

Laying there, nervous, ready for baby

And thinking he might be normal sized, just maybe

When a couple of doctors shared his weight with me

Started telling me her ain’t no small baby

I got all stitched up while my husband took pictures

And said “you’re moving to your hospital room via stretcher”

I vomited nine times throughout the day

Felt sick, exhausted, and not the least bit okay

I was given my baby and felt really helpless

I turned to my husband and said “I am truly useless”

Real sick, ya, real tired

Thinking this has to be some kind of a trick

Is this what recovery is going to be like?

Hmmm, this is not alright

But wait, my baby, they say he might be jaundice

Not pumping and feeding him more milk would be remiss

We wait around to see when we can leave

Not able to move, my mobility I grieve

Well, uh, we had to stay yet another night

Then the doctor came in and said my blood count just wasn’t right

I wasn’t trying to stay, it had been over three days

I denied the transfusion so I could part ways

Waited for blood test results to come back

Finally, the bilirubin levels were not out of whack

If anything, I could say that this was a relief

I thought, “so much for a hospital stay that’s brief”


We pulled into my driveway at seven at night

I hugged all of my kids and everything was alright

Looked at my family, I was finally there

To sit on my throne and take a breath of fresh air
