Autumn Carver is a real-life, walking, talking miracle. This mom was on life support and made a miraculous recovery and finally gets to hold her newborn son.
Autumn and her husband Zach were excited to be pregnant with their third child, especially after experiencing several miscarriages. Even in the middle of the pandemic, they had found joy and looked forward to the birth of their son.
But in August, both Autumn and Zach contracted COVID.
For Zach, he experienced a fever but Autumn's health continued to go downhill. Autumn was then admitted to the hospital. After checking her condition, her medical team realized the virus was attacking her lungs and they had no choice but to intubate her.
Mom On Life Support Makes Miraculous Recovery
As her health continued to decline, the medical team delivered her son Huxley at 33 weeks and then placed Autumn Carver on life support. No one knew if this new mom would ever wake up to hold her baby boy or go home to her new family of five. Yet, after two months Autumn finally woke up.
Once the doctors moved her out of isolation, she finally got to meet her precious baby boy. It had been seven weeks since Huxley had been delivered!
Everyone including the hospital staff couldn't wait for this moment. To see Autumn hold Huxley was a breath of fresh air in the midst of the COVID battle.
“Her parents, one of her best friends, and many nurses and doctors witnessed the special moment. I don’t know if there was a dry eye in the area,” he wrote of his wife meeting Huxley. “What an amazing day. We have a long way to go, but a good day through this was much needed."
It wasn't just an amazing day — it was a reminder that God works all things together for our good. It was a reminder God protects, provides, and carries us even in the bleakest of moments. And he is the God of miracles.
Autumn Carver Goes Home For The Holidays
Before Autumn Carver was released to go home from the hospital, she Facetimed her daughter Sadie and asked her what she wanted for Christmas. Her little girl had the perfect answer: For Mommy to come home for Christmas!
“I tried to ask Sadie, who is 4, what she wanted for Christmas and bless her little heart, the only thing she could come up with is that she wanted mommy to come home,” Autumn said.
Sadie did get her wish. Autumn is home recovering from her battle. She may have to get a lung transplant in the future but Autumn is recovering well and her little family is blessed and thriving now that their miracle mom is home!
