Mother Wakes From Coma After Hearing Newborn Crying
Every birth has a story. For Shelly Cawley, the story of the birth of her baby girl, Rylan, has medical personnel at CMC North East believing in miracles.
“I clearly remember laying on the stretcher to take me back to the operating room and I was crying. I was telling the doctors that I was scared that I wasn’t going to wake up from my surgery. Which is kind of eerie to look back on because I was right.” Shelly said.
“It was an emergency C-section. Shelley had to be put to sleep so I wasn’t allowed in there.” said Jeremy Cawley, Shelly’s husband.
During the surgery a blood clot broke loose sending Shelly into a coma.
“She had a lot of fluid in her lungs, there were having trouble getting oxygen to her brain, they were having trouble with her blood pressure up.” Jeremy said. “And it just seemed as if she was done fighting.”
