Woman Gives Birth, Wakes Up An Amputee
Katy and Al Hayes already had two beautiful children, and were thrilled that a third was on the way. Katy gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Arielle, in 2010, and everything seemed fine. But within a few days, Katy was getting sicker and sicker, and eventually was admitted to the hospital where she was diagnosed with a fairly routine Streptococcal A infection – that ended up not being so routine. The infection spread into Katy’s organ systems and to her limbs. Under sedation in the ICU, Katy didn’t know what was happening until she woke up with all four of her limbs amputated. Husband Al made the heartwrenching decision to save his wife’s life, but worried that she wouldn’t be able to forgive him. See how their relationship flowers in the midst of tragedy in the video below.
