A husband has taken to Reddit to ask for advice on a difficult family situation following his wife’s emergency c-section. The Reddit user, who has chosen to go by the name pissedofSIL, explained that his sister-in law is holding a grudge against him and his wife, as they waited six hours before notifying them that her sister had to undergo an emergency c-section due to serious hemorrhaging.
“My wife and I went to a routine appointment that turned into a surprise emergency c-section and nearly fatal hemorrhage. This all happened very quickly and perhaps we didn’t consider everyone’s feelings through the process, but after DW came out of the operating room alive after midnight, we just wanted to be with our baby for a few hours and notify family in the morning,” the new father explained.
Fair enough, right?
The Reddit user goes on to share that prior to delivery, he and his wife had developed a birth plan in which they decided they would wait a few hours to celebrate their journey to parenthood alone. There where a few hours where the father was taken out of the operating room in which he was "pondering the possibility that I might lose my wife whole simultaneously taking in the the joy of finally becoming a parent to a healthy baby."
"During this short time, my head and heart felt like they might explode. There was nothing on Earth that could have prepared me for this and this was the first time I had felt emotion so intense that it was all I could do to breathe. It's indescribable how much I was consumed in this moment. At that time, there was no one and nothing else on Earth but my wife and children," he continued.
