The first time that you receive news about being a grandparent is exciting.
Your beloved child will have their own baby.
Perhaps you will be flooded with memories of your children when they were newborn?
You can still visualize them as children, running around and playing.
They are going to have their own bundles of joy now.
For Alison Dent and her partner, Robert, they were overjoyed when they were told they would be grandparents.
Soon after the joyful news, Alison’s happiness was short-lived, as she began to experience severe stomach pains.
Convinced that she was dying she went to the hospital.
Alison and Robert could not prepare for the news they were about to receive…
For her whole life Alison, from Darlington, England, had suffered from a range of health problems.
Over 20 years ago she gave birth to her only child.
She had woke up in the middle of the night and her sheets were covered in blood.
Alison had a routine operation to remove part of her cervix as she discovered that she was suffering from abnormal cervical cells.
Unfortunately for Alison, it meant that she was unable to have any more children.
She and Robert were devastated by the news because they wanted to have a big family.
They raised their daughter Kylie with all the love in the world as they were so grateful to have her.
When Kylie revealed that she was expecting it was very emotional for the grandparents.
At the time Alison found out she was going to be a grandmother, she was, unfortunately, suffering from terrible stomach pains.
Alison says “I went to the doctor, in March 2013 two months after Kylie got pregnant, and I was diagnosed with IBS,”
Alison’s stomach continued to give her trouble.
It became more and more bloated.
IBS is a gastrointestinal disease, which means that you can not find any problems in the stomach or intestines.
A couple of months later Kylie gave birth to a beautiful baby girl called Caseylee.
For her daughter and family’s sake, Alison tried to be happy.
Alison feared her time would be short with her beloved granddaughter.
She was getting severe stomach pains three months later so she decided to head to the emergency room.
Doctors found another cyst when they did a scan.
They then carried out further tests including some blood tests.
That’s when she got the shocking news – almost 26 years after Alison learned she could no longer have children.
She was told “It isn’t a cyst … It’s a baby.”
Alison says ”I was stunned then, ‘I was 32 weeks pregnant and I’d had no idea.’
Almost eight weeks later Alison (43) gave birth to a little boy Bobby Charles.
Alison remarks “I’ve never been happier. I thought I was dying – instead, I got this little cutie,”
This is such an incredible surprise for Alison and her family to receive!
Bobby Charles was born five months after niece arrived.
The little guy is happy with his supportive and loving family.
