Happy Ending To
Scary Story

A Texas woman, nearly 9 months pregnant, collapsed at work and was technically dead when her baby was delivered by emergency c-section -- happily, the story has a happy ending.

Mom with newborn baby

When a baby is born after Mom has passed away, it’s usually not a very happy story. For Erica Nigrelli, however, her story has a wonderful ending as she was able to be revived after her baby was born.

Amazing story

Erica Nigrelli, a high school teacher in Missouri City, Texas, was three weeks away from her due date when she walked to a co-worker’s classroom, complained of faintness and then collapsed. Teens ran from the room calling for help while three teachers attempted CPR and grabbed a defibrillator to try to restart her heart. Her husband, a teacher at the same school, called 911 in a panic, but by the time she reached the hospital, she had no pulse.

Doctors delivered her baby, a girl named Elayna, via emergency c-section. When a mother’s heart stops, it’s a race against time, so the operation likely just took a few minutes. Once the baby was born, the doctors turned back to Erica and were amazed to find that her heart started beating again.

She was kept in a medically-induced coma for five days and was diagnosed with a heart problem that she wasn’t aware that she had -- hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which causes the heart muscle to thicken, which in turn means that the heart has trouble pumping properly and must work harder than normal.

In many patients there are no symptoms, but sometimes physical activity can put more strain on the heart which can cause a fatal heart attack. Pregnancy is another condition that puts extra strain on the heart, but as Erica didn’t know she had it, she wasn’t able to change her activities to help prevent problems.

Baby Elayna is now three months old and remains on oxygen, but is overall healthy and doing well.

two states in a nation

I did the wiggle test on the compressor relay, and no difference. I can get to any other connectors very easily, at least not with the suspension switch on, due to how low the vehicle is. I am trying to remember exactly what happened.

This is certainly creative! Recycling plastic products is great for the environment but as stated earlier be careful around the birds. I am wondering what do people use this for primarily? I know that looks are not everything but id like to hear what are the most common uses for these bags. Ill start ( this is speculative since I haven't personally made these yet) I think Id use them to organize some of my loose items in the garage.

In person, Atkinson is soft spoken and well groomed. Visiting the CHASI pantry, he wears a tie, pin stripe shirt, gray slacks and a leather jacket. For the most part his demeanor is gentle and only a little bit melancholy, but he stutters slightly when he discusses the death of his wife and his voice rises in agitation when he considers the possible fallout of yet more food stamp cuts..
