Just Don’t Fly When Pregnant, At All!

Just Don’t Fly When Pregnant, At All!

I’m sorry but I just believe that if you are entrusted with the delicate responsibility of caring a child, for those 9, literally 10 months, you just need to take it all the way easy.

I’ve had 2 bucket-headed babies and I love them dearly.  When I was preggers with both of them, I just took it easy and tried to do everything I could to ensure they would be healthy.  Whether it was sleeping on my back the whole time, not eating spicy food, not perming my hair the first trimester, or whatever, I did it.  Now, one thing I didn’t have to worry about then was flying because I just flew for the first time 2 years ago.  Hilarious, I know.

Anywho, this Iowa mother, Wendy Morrow, got clearance from her doctor that while SEVEN months pregnant, she could fly.  Now, I’m not sure if the doctor knew where she wanted to fly to but it wasn’t a 5 hour flight.  She was flying to China for her brother’s wedding!!!!!

As soon as girlfriend tried to board the plane to get to the next destination Xiamen, China from Hong Kong International Airport, her watereth broketh!  Yes it did hunny!

Baby Kyuss was born 2-3 months early on May 7th (depending on how you count the weeks) and was automatically put in the ICU there in Hong Kong.

Kyuss is not covered on Wendy’s health insurance and the medical bills are insane.  The hospital there has a policy that the bill has to be paid before they will issue a birth certificate and then to get out of the country, the Embassy has to see the baby to issue the passport or whatever for him to travel to the U.S.

So, the Morrow family is just stressed with the entire situation and I never want to imagine anything like this happening.  Not only is your baby early but you’re in a foreign country and without the insurance coverage you need.

I’m VERY, VERY, VERY disappointed in our U.S. Embassy for not paying her medical bills at the hospital and getting them back to the U.S. point blank period!  If we can negotiate to bring hostages home or pay for them, blah blah blah, why in the world can’t our citizens get the help that they need in a crisis situation like this?????  That little bitty money for those medical bills is a drop in the bucket.  Where are philanthropists when you need them?  Like, Bill Gates or Oprah, hell it could be Larry Flint for all I care should pay their way home.

As of now, they have multiple fundraisers established even a GoFundMe account called Bring Baby Kyuss Home.  The hospital has been paid a certain amount by an unknown source for the birth certificate to be released and I’m not sure where they are with the passport or his release from the hospital.

I just pray that Wendy and Kyuss can get home SOON!  Oh yeah, it’s just her and they baby.  Her husband and 4-year-old couldn’t fly over for the wedding so imagine how Mr. Morrow feels about being so helpless.

Let’s send our love and assistance to the Morrow family for baby Kyuss!
