Annebelle was born a perfectly healthy baby girl. She was 9 pounds 2 ounces and 41 weeks gestation with an uneventful delivery. We spent the usual couple days in the hospital post birth and then took her home. For four blissful days I was a mother of two amazing, healthy kids.
The day after leaving the hospital we took Annie into the emergency room because she had not eaten for over 8 hours. We were there for hours and saw multiple doctors, nurses and techs before a labor and delivery nurse came down to place her IV and immediately noticed that she was having neonatal seizures. Her pediatrician was called in and she was transferred to a children's hospital. That was the day that my entire life changed.
