The Story Behind Baby Ollie’s Hospital Scare

Welcome back to another episode of the Rainmaker Family Show! Earlier this year, we worked ahead as much as we could in our business and recorded a few episodes before the birth of our second son. Now that baby Oliver is here, we are back in the studio and recording new episodes! If you have kids of your own, you know how quickly things can change. That’s why we wanted to take a couple of episodes and give you some life updates! If you are new here and are looking for money-making and passive income tips, feel free to skip this episode and dive into other shows like:

If you missed last week, we shared the fantastic story of Oliver Wave’s birth. If you missed it, go check that one out first! It will give you more context and behind-the-scenes info about our pregnancy, delivery, and everything leading up to today’s story. Only three short weeks after Ollie was born,  It all started when Chelsey noticed Ollie looked a little “blue,” so we took him to urgent care. The Doctor came in and recommended we get him monitored at the hospital as soon as possible. From there, things started to move fast.

The Doctors and Nurses started poking him and hooking him up to stuff. He was a champ the whole time, but for us, it was hard to watch. What we thought was not very serious turned very serious quickly. Our baby’s breaths began to get labored, and every once in a while, you would notice he would totally stop.

Ten seconds for newborns is normal,  but he’d go 20 or 30 seconds sometimes…while we all would try to wake him. This is what led the Doctor to decide that he needed to be airlifted to a hospital in Sacramento. Chelsey gets in an ambulance to head to the airport, and Stephen gets in the car and speeds the hour and a half drive to the hospital while she flies overhead. Hit play to hear what happens next!

It was a wild 3-day roller coaster, but we were super thankful we trusted Chelsey’s mamma’s intuition and took Oliver in when we did. Disclaimer: Ollie is totally happy and healthy now, and we are all taking proactive steps towards healing. We try to be as open and honest about our journey as possible. Thanks for letting us do life with you and catch you up on a few stories!
