“I should’ve called an ambulance. I didn’t realize the seriousness of it. A few days went on and she had a terrible wheeze and was struggling to breathe. She couldn’t run, swim, or play.

It felt like a complete surprise, until I went for the ultrasound. The screen flashed. My heart literally skipped a beat. July 27th was the due date. Jesse’s birthday.”
