Story One of today

I use this blog to write things down and document them so hopefully I'll never forget them. I always think I'll never forget certain things, but just last night I was talking to a friend and I told her something that I had totally forgot about, so I decided to post it. I had a whole different post planned out today, so who knows, maybe I'll do that one later.

About Callee, when she was born we hadn't quite decided on a name yet. Mike told me I could name her and I liked the names Cameron, Callee, and Cambry. Notice the C's? I had her at 3:10 p.m. but they had to do a few things with her so we had called close family who was in the room waiting to be able to see her and we were discussing her name. Everyone was throwing out the names they liked and then my mom mentioned that the doctor who realized my placenta had torn and if I didn't have Callee, she would die, his name was Dr. Cawli (pronounced Cali.) Dr. Cawli is my daughter's angel. Had they released me as planned, she wouldn't have made it. He caught this tear at 1:00 p.m. on the 9th and I had gotten in the accident at 10:10 p.m. on the 8th. Praise the Lord for this man. And Callee is a true fighter. That is how Callee came to be known as Callee.

What a great story to go with a beautiful name. I have a similar story about when my twins were born - not the names, but the doctor and all! I love Callee's name - it is beautiful. Take care.

What a great "name" story. Yet very scary of what could of happened. Not sure if I ever told you this but Callee was one of the girl names I had picked out when I was pregnant with Brayden. :o) But as you know the girl names never worked out well for me...lol!
