December Mighty Bee

December Mighty Bee

Mighty Mom: Ann Mighty Bee: Olivia What were your very first thoughts when you found out you were pregnant with Olivia? We were very excited when we found out we were expecting Olivia. We had a nine month old son, William and we had had a miscarriage three months earlier so we were very nervous as well. We didn’t tell our family at first.   Did the time pass slowly or quickly throughout the pregnancy? Time went by quickly. When I was about three months pregnant I got very sick and was on bed rest for a week, we thought I would lose the baby. After I recovered I was always afraid I would lose the baby.   Were you aware before giving birth that Olivia would be spending time in the NICU? We had no idea and never expected to be the NICU. According to our doctor everything was progressing normally and Olivia was healthy.   Can you describe the moment Olivia was born? I woke up around 4:00 that morning ( two months before her due date) my back was hurting and I noticed a little spotting. My husband and I thought we would just drop off his daughter at school and go get checked out by my doctor. Before he got back from the school I knew this was more than just a normal back ache. By the time we left for the hospital I was in active labor and trying not to push. My husband was driving 90 mph and yelling at me not to “mess up his new Car”. Our 18 month old son...
A Look Back: Mighty Shaw

A Look Back: Mighty Shaw

Mighty Shaw – One Year Ago From MightyShaw.blogspot.com originally posted January 24, 2012 By Candace Richter   Disclosure – This entry is not for the faint of heart or those with weak stomachs. One year ago, it was a typical Tuesday evening. Michael, Nash and I had an early dinner. Nash was bathed and in bed by 7pm, which meant a little quiet time with my husband. I was 25 weeks pregnant (40 weeks is full term). While I was in my second trimester, I was still tired all the time. Often, I would find myself in bed within an hour of getting Nash down. This particular evening, Michael and I snuggled up on the sofa to watch a movie. I was asleep before even the title flashed on the screen. This would be the last time we snuggled in that house on that sofa. After the movie, Michael woke me up around 10pm to go to bed. Everything was just like any other evening. No pains. No signs. No warnings. Around 4am, I woke up. I still am not sure why. In retrospect, it must have been the blood, but I was too weary to be clear. I reached for the lamp on the nightstand beside me and sat in horror at the bed full of blood surrounding me. The red pool was the width of our bed, up to my elbows, dripping down the sides. I shudder just recalling the sight. My instinct was not to panic. I needed to get Michael and Nash – but I was afraid to move or stand up for the sake...
Charlotte Hornets Team Up with Bee Mighty

Charlotte Hornets Team Up with Bee Mighty

AUGUST 3, 2015 – The Charlotte Hornets and forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist have teamed up in support of Bee Mighty during the month of August to help former Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) graduates and their families. Bee Mighty is a not for profit fund administered by Novant Health that provides grants to former NICU babies and their families for medical equipment and therapy. Once discharged from the NICU, these babies are much more likely to need therapy or equipment – which is oftentimes not covered by insurance – for developmental delays. Today, Bee Mighty launches a month-long fundraising drive throughout the month of August and later in the month it will celebrate the funding of the 100th local family to receive a grant. The Hornets’ Kidd-Gilchrist, who was born prematurely and spent some time with Bee Mighty kids last season, will serve as an ambassador for the month-long campaign, encouraging those in the Charlotte community to assist in the fundraising drive. Additionally, he will be in attendance for the 100th grant donation. The Hornets will match up to $5,000 for all donations made to the Bee Mighty campaign. Those interested in donating can do so online at beemighty.org. “I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Bee Mighty to help raise awareness for NICU graduates,” said Kidd-Gilchrist. “I was a preemie and spent time in the NICU after I was born so this is something that means a lot to me. It was great to spend time last year with some Bee Mighty alumni and I look forward to meeting more grads later this month.” Heather Hucks, chair of Bee...
