February 23rd, 2011, after a routine appointment at Downtown Women OBGYN in Soho, my wife, Mary, was instructed to go directly to the emergency room at NYU Tisch. She was having extreme back pain, chest pain, and shortness of breath. For precautionary measures they wanted to do additional testing to ensure it wasn’t complications with her pregnancy. Several hours later, while working in Sandusky, Ohio, I was on a frantic phone call with Mary, as she explained to me that due to severe complications in her pregnancy (caused from HELLP Syndrome), that our unborn child of only 28 weeks, would have to be taken out of the womb via emergency c-section. At that moment, both Mary and our unborn daughter had a high risk of fatality. It was the one of the scariest moments in my life! Remy was born via cesarean at 7:23 PM. I heard the news while sitting on a plane at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport. I felt joy, sorrow, and helplessness. I cannot begin to describe the flood of other emotions that I was filled with during my flight home. To top it off, I eventually had to de-plane for a later flight. Through the eyes of a first time Father, the story of the 2 lb love of my life begins.
