Why in the world did I say that I would put my body through this torture? I must have been insane when I even asked to do this. Who in their right mind would go through this pain and not keep what I am about to give away. My husband, at first, didn’t want me to do it, but when I told him why I wanted to do this and showed him my research for it, he finally agreed. I know what I am doing is giving a life gift to my friends, who wouldn’t be able to have this precious gift. This is what has gotten me through this pain I am enduring right now. The pain is getting worse and hopefully it will be over soon!
The doctor comes in and checks me out to see how far I am coming along. He tells me it shouldn’t be long now. That I am doing great. Yeah! I just might have to kill him before this pain stops! The nurses keep taking my vitals and making sure I am comfortable. How can I be comfortable while feeling like I am about to explode?
Oh no! Here comes another one and I believe it will soon be over now. I yell at the nurses and they hurry over to me. They check me and say, yes, it is time to start pushing. The nurses tell me to wait until the doctor gets back before I do push. What! How can I wait? It is coming now! I have no control over it so I yell. Everyone rushes to my side and the doctor comes running in the door.
Right behind him comes in the reason I am here today, doing this. She makes me calm as soon as I see her. She comes over and holds my hand then smiles down at me. I know I can do this now with her beside me. Yes, she is the reason I want to give this life gift to her. She has showed me what love is all about so I am sacrificing my time and body for her. She would do the same for me if she could because that is what best friends do. Giving her this life gift she deserves. Now I must bear this pain just for a little longer and I can do this. Maybe!!!
