Light of God Lyrics
When we looked into the skies beyond the trees
We saw the sun shine beyond the clouds
Remember we saw GOD
Shining our light
Love held us in the LIGHT of GOD.
I remember how we danced into the night
We danced so hard we couldn't sit down
Remember we are one
Shining our light
Love holds us in the LIGHT of GOD.
We are one
When you look into the sky beyond the sea,
Know that I love you more than the world,
Remember you are GOD,
Shining your light,
We are the LOVE LIGHT of GOD.
A week before Christmas, I had terrible pains at the bottom of my belly. Jasmine kept kicking the same spot over and over and over again. The pain was unbearable, so I went to my OB/GYN. She did an ultrasound and called the hospital to tell them she was sending us because Jasmine was fighting. Dr. Baer discovered a fibroid on my uterus that twisted and was fighting Jasmine for resources. I had an myomectomy at 8 months pregnant. I felt ill for most of Jasmine's pregnancy, but once I was released from the hospital, I felt like Queen Earth Mother Goddess. I had 6 weeks of heaven.
The morning Jasmine arrived was wonderful. I woke up feeling the best I had the entire pregnancy. I got up early and helped my mom change her bed linen. After tidying up a bit, my mom made a great breakfast that I immediately threw up. I wanted to take a shower, so I started to undress when my water broke. I was elated. I jumped, very slowly, into the shower. I took my time getting dressed while Mom and Peter went bananas. By 1 pm we got to the hospital and checked in. The midwife prepared me for natural childbirth, but the doctor said no because my myomectomy surgery hadn't fully healed. I was rushed onto a gurney and wheeled to emergency surgery. Because I wasn't told to bring a gown, everyone in the hallway saw my entire naked, pregnant body. I didn't care, I was Queen Earth Mother Goddess.
It was a blessing that the surgeon came in when he did because the umbilical cord was wrapped around Jasmine’s neck: pushing would have killed her.
Jasmine Alyse was born by cesarean at 3:10 pm CET. She was 20.5 inches (52 cm) and 8.9 lbs (4020 g).
I checked in to the hospital on the 17th for the surgery on the 18th: I knew this time to bring my grandmother's nightgown. Several doctors warned me of all the possible risks for every aspect of the cesarean: everything from bloating to death. The next morning, they sent a midwife intern to fetch me at 6:30 am (a half hour earlier than they said the day before). Peter arrived shortly thereafter: he had to drop off Jasmine at school early.
I didn’t get to see him for that long because I had to get the IV and anesthesia in the operating room. While I waited for things to get started, I began to remember all the warnings I was told the day before. They put up the curtain to separate me from the surgery and I lost it. I couldn't stop crying. It wasn't the ugly cry, it was just a lot of tears. I couldn't wipe them away because they had me strapped to the table. Thankfully, they brought in Peter early to calm me down and he asked them to fix the curtain that was too close to my face. Within minutes Peter had me laughing and happy. The doctor immediately hollered for us to stop laughing because he had started cutting. Twenty minutes later, he pulled out Jacob.
After he stitched me back up, the midwife and nurse wheeled me back to the prep room where a cleaned-up Jacob and Peter were waiting. The three of us immediately slept for several hours before returning to the maternity ward.
Jacob Anton was born by cesarean at 8:33 am CET. He weighed 3430 g (7.6 lbs) and was 50.8 cm (20 inches) long.
