the LOST ones


Nebraska Johanthon Locott. Our Angel Born Sleeping; 9-November-2006.

Nebraska gave us 8 months of wondering. We didn't plan to have children yet at the time, but when that test said: "PREGNANT", we were ready! Ok, I found out on May 24, 2006. I was 2 weeks late for my period, and decided to take a test. Yep, we were having a baby! LOL. I told Kyler, my husband, and he was so happy, and so was I. We were so happy!! LOL. I and my hubby were 20, and still in college. I had 1 more year left, and my hubby had 1 year left, too. I was going to college to be a Hygeinst, while my hubby was going to college to be an Athletic Trainer. We were married since age 19, so, yeah. Well, things went smoothly. We just couldn't help but wonder.......who was the baby going to look like? Be like? What was it? Boy? Girl? Such wondering! LOL. Well, on August 15, 2006, I was 17 weeks. I found out we were carrying a boy!! LOL. We were excited!! It really did not matter if it were a boy or a girl. Not to us. Well, weeks went by. Soon, I was 34 weeks along. I was due on, I believe, on December 2, 2006, but my ob/gyn said the baby would definately arrive by November 30, 2006. So, we waited, and waited. At 35 weeks, Nevember 8, 2006, I went for my ultrasound. I was worried because Nebraska was not moving at all. I voiced it to my ob/gyn, and he told me he would do an emergency scan. Well, he did so. 5 minutes later, he said our boy was gone, and he hugged us, and said he was so sorry. We just cried. Well, I was induced on November 8, 2006, at 3 PM. At 11:48 PM, Neovember 8, 2006, my water broke. I just cried. So did Kyler, even our dr. and nurse cried a little. They hugged us over and over. We just cried. At 2:56 AM, November 9, 2006, I was finally fully dialated, and got the epidural. I pushed and pushed. At 3:02 AM, on November 9, 2006, our baby boy arrived silently. We cried over the deafness, no crying, no baby to come home with us. We cried and cried. They weighed him, and he was 4 lbs. 9 oz. 16 inches. He was perfect, so tiny, so precious. But, he was gone. I cannot believe he is gone. Even today. Nor can Kyler. It's horrible to lose a child, it really is. It never gets better, never. We named our son Nebraska for 2 reasons: #1, he was born in Nebraska, and #2 my mom was from Nebraska, and she passed away in 1999 due to Pnuemonia in Gooergia, but she was born in Nebraska. We know, it's a 'new' name, but it's ok. Nebraska Johnathon Locott (Reed).His service was November 14, 2006, at 9 AM until his burial at 1 PM. After the 6 weeks were up, I got back to school and finsished, and today, I am a hygeinst, and Kyler is an Athletic Trainer. Today, we have 2 other kids, Lyllyan, 3, and Emily, 3 months. We love and miss Nebraska so much!! x0x0x0x0.
