Posted February 04, 2018 06:36:11 A mother and daughter, a grandmother and a grandpa, all on their way to a wedding, are sharing stories about their daughter, Brittany Marie Cudahy.
Brittany was just 3 years old when her mother, Nancy, went into labor.
She had just gotten home from work at the end of March.
“It was really sad, but we were so excited,” Nancy Cudakys’ daughter Brittany Marie said.
“We were in the car and we couldn’t stop crying.
I told my husband I was going to call my mother.
And he said, ‘I hope you don’t leave her.’ “
Then my husband was so angry, so he drove up to our house and told us to come out.
And he said, ‘I hope you don’t leave her.’
And I was like, ‘No, mom.
I don’t want to leave her, no.'”
Nancy Caudakys was not a strict mom.
“I was always very accepting of the kids, and I would give them everything,” she said.
Nancy Cudi said she didn’t realize how young Brittany was until Brittany went into labour.
“The first few days I wasn’t sure, but I just assumed it was because I was expecting a baby,” she told CNN.
“When Brittany was about 4 months old, we went into the hospital.
I didn’t think much of it until we went in the hospital, and she was crying.
And I said, Mom, I want to see you.
I said I want you to see Brittany, but then I said you’re pregnant, too.
I thought she was so beautiful. “
And then when Brittany was born, I said Mom, you know, you have to be there.
I thought she was so beautiful.
I just said, Oh, I can’t let you go.”
Brittany’s mother Nancy Coudakys says Brittany is in the process of healing from a brain hemorrhage that occurred when she was still in the NICU.
“She’s a good kid,” Nancy said.
She said Brittany was a happy, playful little girl who loved singing and drawing.
“He was a bright, sweet, sweet little boy,” she recalled.
“Brittany’s mom, she’s really a wonderful, wonderful, beautiful woman.”
Brittany was named for Brittany the cat, which Nancy said was “so adorable and just loved to play.
She was very smart.”
She said she and her husband, Brian, who is also a pediatrician, have been through a lot together.
“That was the hardest part, for me, being the mother of a newborn,” she explained.
“You know, Brittany has a lot of other kids.
And so, you’re looking at it like, How am I going to take care of them all?
But you know how I felt when Brittany came into my life and said, I’m going to be a nurse, and they were like, Oh no, I didn
