Samuel Oliver Markussen
September 28th - 30th, 2020
"I was 23 weeks and 1 day pregnant on Monday Sept 28th when I went for an appt. I was leaking and having what I thought was braxton hicks. The doctor sent me up to labor and delivery because my water bag was visibly ruptured. Just a few hours later, my water broke. We learned quickly that our baby was breech and his heart rate was dropping. Via emergency c section, baby Samuel was born at 404 pm on September 28th. Suffering from a brain hemorrhage, he lived his entire life in the NICU and passed away on September 30th at 1253am. Struggling to keep warm as his oxygen levels deteriorated, doctors removed life support while I held him against chest. I miss him terribly."
