Happy Birthday

Today is a special day.  21 years ago,  Novevember 18, 1988,  I gave birth to two amazing little boys.  Because one of them was breech,  we needed a c-section.   It was a little scary.  I had never  been in the hospital before.  Seven stitches in my knee was the extent of my medical history.  And to be honest,  I was a pretty worried about Mr. Lilt being in the delivery room.  Getting a blood test before we got married was pretty traumatic for him.  Needles,  blood,  nurses,  oh my.  But he assured me he would be just fine.

During my epidural,  the anesthesiologist did a "cold swab"  test on my belly,  to insure that he had me plenty numb from the waist down.  I was so afraid that I would feel the pain of them cutting me open.  When he asked me if I could feel the cold swab,  I kept saying "yes,"  even thought I could not.  More anesthesia.   Then a little more.  I was numb from my chin down  and could barely even talk.  The delivery went so quickly.  Mr. Lilt did great.  I remember at one point he said,  "Oh my God,  they just put your bladder on your chest!"   Then voila!  Two perfect little baby boys.  Finally,  I get to hold these guys we had been waiting for,  for so long.   I reached to hold Baby #1.  Nothing happened. I reached again.  Nothing.  I was so freaking numbed up,  my arms could not move!

They sent me off to a recovery room,  where I had to stay until I could wiggle my toes.  They sent Mr. Lilt off with our babies.  He and my mother shared the two bundles of joy,  while I was laid up in that damned room.  I had so much anesthesia in me,  it was an eternity before I could do the toe wiggle.

It's been 21 years,  since that day.  The boys have grown into wonderful young men.  I probably won't even get to see them today.  They are very busy at school. 

  But the day they were born... easily the best day of my life.


Disclaimer:  Mr. Lilt says they put my bladder on my stomach,  not my chest.  But I could swear he said chest!  

Anyway,  you know I must love him....I let him see my bladder.

Hi great story
The birth if my two children alway be best memories.
I only have admiration for ladies over childbirth .
After been present at two emergency cesarean births.
All I could say was wow !
I remember so well ,holding my children ,while waiting for wife come out of recovery room
A mixture of huge happiness and worry .
Then doors opened and my wife and me
Could share been parents to new born.

That's life

Excellent. Memory of giving birth to the first child makes someone the happiest person..for you it was a double enjoyment.

It was a special, one-time event, Ambrose. No one has ever seen my bladder since. :-)

LMAO. well that's a good thing I'm guessing! You could have gotten it pierced while it was out! ;-)

Wouldn't that lead

LMAO.... not if someone knows what they are doing! Granted, cleaning your piercing might prove difficult! ;-)

Awesome story, Lilt! This was a feature story in the log in page, which usually I ignore completely, but I saw it was you, and I said "I know her!". So it makes it interesting all of a sudden! :-) In fact, now I know a star, a lady whose bladder was on her chest - or tummy - or whatever! ;-)

Great story, thanks for sharing...

Hi Lilt. Thanks for sharing. I gather your boys are teachers? Thas an achievment and am sure you hold your head high... unfortunatly I'll never be able to give my parents that proud feeling :-( but oh well. Beautiful story.

Happy twins' birthday, Lilt. (Great story.)

What an incredibly cool story ! Are your twins identical or fraternal ?

Wheezers, I would love to help you out with the bladder thing. But I am still using mine.<br />
You have come to the right place though! Here on EPee, there are plenty of people who would love to discuss it with you!!!

This is the difinition of. Nasty in the Cuban dictionary bro

LOL, Lilt, I couldn't help but laugh. As a surgeon the statement of more anesthesia had me holding my tummy laughing. Numb from the chin down. LOL. Taking notes. I'm sure I will remember not to ask for more anesthesia when it comes time to bring my twins into the world. Congratulations on raising two boys.

Just last year I had my little girl on this day! This is a wonderful post!

Fabulous! No matter how many years go by, you will always remember "birth" day. Congratulations on your miracle!

Oooooh, featured you! Thanks for the warm wishes, Kathryn. This will be my 24th Mother's Day. I'm well seasoned :-)

What the hell? For days, my stories have been hit with this kind of spammy nonsense. I have deleted so many comments. And all my tokens have disappeared too. This place just keeps getting wackier by the minute.<br />
<br />
*not that I really care about tokens...BRING BACK THE FREE CLOWN BEE!*

I am pretty confused too, babe. Thank goodness the air hostesses are so good at their job.

Hahaha...not always, Sasssy!<br />
Our youngest is grounded today.

Thanks Gilly. We were missing one, but still fun. Went for a Japanese hibachi dinner, a first time for our youngest. Then we came home and watched "Dumb and Dumber." Mom fell asleep on the couch :-)

This story is so sweet and funny. Delivery day is probably on of the most frightening days of a mother's life, but with such a wonderful reward! Happy belated birthday to your twins :)

What a sweet thing to say!<br />
I'm trying hard to believe it was 23 years ago. I'm glad they're not making me Grandma yet.<br />
I'm much too young to be someone's granny ;-)

I love this. Sentimental and funny reflection of motherhood and a reflection of you. <br />
A beautiful celebration on the delivery of your family.

Get noooooooooo argument from me there.<br />
<br />
Though I might like to try an epidural sometime. ;)

Birthing babies is not for the weak.<br />
That's why the women do it.

Happy Mother's Day fish mouth !<br />
<br />
Coulda omitted the part bout the bladder *gurk*

Yep, tomorrow they will turn 23 years old. <br />
It's a little bittersweet, surrealfriend. One of my guys is in the middle of crossing the Atlantic Ocean. We won't get to see him. The first missed birthday, ever :-( <br />
Depending on internet connections, we might not even be able to talk to him.<br />
<br />
I'm not really an amazing Mom. I have amazing kids. They keep me accountable.

Happy Birthday to your twins today.<br />
<br />
You sound like an amazing mother.
