It could almost be an episode on the TV reality show “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant”. Becky and Eric Buckner of Blair had tried for years to have a baby and had given up hope.
Earlier this year 41 year old Becky started having abdominal spasms in July and thought it was a gallbladder attack or some other issue so when went to the doctor who decided to do a pregnancy test. It came back positive and not only was Becky pregnant but she was 35-weeks along meaning she only had a little over a month to get ready for their new bundle of joy.
On August 10th, Becky went into labor and unfortunately things did not go smoothly. Becky did deliver her baby by emergency C-section at the Blair Hospital but the baby stopped breathing after delivery and was airlifted to the Nebraska Medical Center. Soon after, Becky was also taken to the Med Center after suffering Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, which can be fatal.
There is a very happy ending. Baby Chloe recovered and Becky was well enough to be taken off a ventilator on August 22nd. Baby Chloe is doing very well the new family is settling into their routine at their home in Blair.
