Getting birth at 66 years old is, of course, a recipe for disaster, and, while everything seemed to have gone well for karen cannelli at first, this would turn out to be a very wrong assessment.
Something was off here and when doctors discovered what it was, they immediately had karen return to the hospital. They just hoped that they were not too late when karen finally managed to give birth to her baby.
She and her husband felt, like all their struggles were now behind them. They were maybe old, but they were new parents to this beautiful little boy, but there was something they did not know.
Yet when doctors end up running some more tests on karen and the baby, they make a discovery that they need to verify it three times before they actually allow themselves to believe what they are seeing.
But there is no doubt about it with lead in his shoes. The doctors bring the news to karen and george who, upon hearing it, can do nothing else but cry. But what do the doctors discover and how did the 66 year old woman even manage to get pregnant in the first place?
When doctors confirm that the 66 year old woman was pregnant, they were shocked. They kept asking themselves. How was possible for an older woman like karen, could be carrying a baby in her womb.
Not only was the doctor shocked, but even caring herself was also surprised at the news. Karen was at the hospital to complain about how she had been feeling tired and nauseous for a while.
Her thought was that maybe she had been infected with a virus or something, but she got the greatest shock when the doctors confirmed that she was carrying a child. The result of the test revealed that she was four months pregnant.
Karen acknowledged that she noticed the increase in her size and size recently. But she didn’t give it much thought as she attributed her weight gained to her retirement. Since she hadn’t been going to work, but was mostly at home, resting and eating. Well, she felt that was the cause, even though it wasn’t impossible for a woman karen’s age to get pregnant.
It was rare after the doctors had their feel of the surprising news. They quickly tried to change their focus. The medical staff’s attention and concern were drawn to her to ensure the mother and the baby were in good health. The medical staff at the hospital decided to run more checks on care to ascertamer health and the growing fetus. After an extensive checking, they realized that both the mother and baby were doing fine.
This realization calmed them, but they didn’t want to take any chances, so they decided to put some things in place. The doctors instructed karen to always be at the hospital every few months until the baby was delivered.
They emphasized their commitment to ensuring she and the baby were in good health unknowing the passionate doctors karen had different things in her mind while being instructed. Since she was a bit lost in thoughts, she didn’t pay much attention to what the doctor said. Karen was engrossed in deep thinking as she journeyed from a hospital to her home as much as the news surprised her.
She had a lot of doubt about it. She wondered if she still had enough strength to carry and deliver a child again. It was karen’s utmost. Surprise to see that george wasn’t shocked as she had expected when she revealed the news to him.
It appeared that george was entirely in favor of becoming a parent again after thinking and consideration karen finally decided to keep the child after the decision was made.
Karen made up her mind to go through whatever the pregnancy was going to cause her. As months went after months, the due date was gradually getting closer. The pregnancy was much tougher on karen’s body than her other children. Getting out of her bed on some days was a tough thing to do.
George being a good man was always going the extra mile to ensure his wife was as comfortable as possible at exactly three weeks to karen’s delivery. She began toro feel the weight of carrying a baby at her age. At this time she began to feel so sick that george had no other option than to take her to the hospital.
He thought it would be best if she were under the supervision of medical personnel on getting to the hospital. The poor woman was quickly checked by a doctor, considering the critical condition she was in not long after she was induced.
The doctors noticed a sign of more trouble immediately. They made up their minds to perform a c-section on her, but soon after then they realized the caesarean section wasn’t needed a few minutes into the delivery process. Karen gave birth the natural way. It wasn’t easy for her to do, but the doctors tried to keep her stable throughout the process. Fortunately, she and the baby made it through.
The doctors were all happy about the situation. Little did they know that their troubles weren’t over yet.
Karen and the baby had to stay at the hospital for about one more week to recover. George was always there too, but despite being there, he seemed to have a very dead set focus for a particular course. His presence at the hospital after the delivery appeared to have no impact, especially on the mother.
Karen attempted to talk to george, but he didn’t seem interested, she brought up ideas on how they might raise the baby boy and how he felt about being a parent again. She tried to get any interest from him at all, but he won’t talk much.
Karen was getting annoyed and scared. What was wrong with george, they arrived home and their children and family were already there to celebrate the new baby and to give karen and george all the attention they deserved. But george was still acting strange. The family fell in love with the baby immediately and karen was so happy.
However, george didn’t seem to care. This behavior was getting worse. The more time went on karen wanted to discuss it with george, but she wasn’t sure she could he’d been nice in the past months, but now he just seemed cold. What had happened to him? Did he know something that karen didn’t know?
What could it be at? The same time that karen was at home, worried about george, the hospital was getting worried about something else entirely. They had sent karen home that morning she was in good health and i didn’t have any doubts about her or the baby, but now that they were looking at the test results, they knew they had to bring them back in.
Some of the tests were still pending. Answers after karen had left the hospital had, let them go confident that the test results would come back normal.
After all, she and the baby had been strong when they left the hospital. What could have gone so wrong after doing the test three times? They knew that they needed to get karen and her family back to the hospital they needed to come back as soon as possible and decided to call karen and george. This was something that they needed to hear about in person. But what did the shocking news be?
The call came in. Karen answered it as she expected it to be another family member calling to congratulate her, but it wasn’t family. It was something far more frightening once she picked up and heard that it was the hospital calling, she knew something had to be wrong.
The hospital wouldn’t be calling to check up so soon they’d, just gotten home george figured out. That was the hospital calling and he froze. He thought this call might be coming.
Karen was told that she, george and the baby should come back to the hospital early. The next morning they told karen that they’d found something troubling in the results of the numerous tests they had run karen felt shattered. They wouldn’t tell her over the phone what it was, but george didn’t react at all. As expected, george told karen that he thinks he has an idea about what this might be. He didn’t want to bring it up before hearing the results which made karen more worried.
He said it wouldn’t be fair to her, but that thought alone kept caring up all night. She prayed that nothing horrible was in the results, but it didn’t seem likely when they got to the doctor’s office. She was so nervous that she couldn’t hold the baby. George took the baby and told karen to be calm again. The doctor looks more than uncomfortable, he’s nervous and clearly doesn’t want to deliver the news.
The doctors started by talking about the tests, while the doctor was trying to explain the test. That rodney also assured karen that she and the baby were both healthy and that she didn’t need to worry about that. The problem was actually with george. George nodded and seemed to know exactly what the doctor was talking about. What were they telling her? The DNA tests had proven repeatedly that George was certainly not the father of the baby.
His DNA did not match that of the baby. Who was his supposed son? Karen was defeated. She knew immediately what had happened and knew that her world was about to be turned upside down, Karen attempted not to cry, but looking into her husband’s face. It was clear that he’d known about her affair for a while.
Now he knew it before the baby was even born. He suspected right away that the baby wasn’t his, but he knew that the baby would make Karen happy. So he didn’t say anything, but that wasn’t all, George was loving and kind to Karen throughout the whole pregnancy. He still held out hope that it was his baby. He thought for sure that Karen couldn’t have had a baby with another man, but when the baby was born, he knew he wasn’t the father. His gut had told him right away and he had been right.
