MOTHER THANKFULLY HOLDS HER TRIPLETS AFTER GRUELING BIRTH – 10 DAYS LATER SHE UNEXPECTEDLY PASSES
A Kansas couple with two children were delighted to discover they were having triplets. After delivering the three babies, the mother’s health took a turn for the worst.
Casi Rott was released from the hospital after giving birth to the couple’s third, fourth and fifth child. The babies were still in the NICU, but their mother was sent home to get some rest. She woke up in the wee hours of the morning with sharp chest pains.
Joey Rott raced his wife to the hospital where she was diagnosed with a blood clot in her lungs. After a few days of rest and medication, Casi felt better and was sent home again. Before going home, she got to hold her triplets for the first time.
It turned out to also be the last time. A few hours after getting home, Casi’s chest pains returned. Joey rushed her to the hospital, but she passed away.
Joey has bittersweet memories of his wife’s last day. She got to hold their new babies, and spent some quality time with their older children. He said the hours before she died were the ‘happiest I’d ever seen her.’
Joey is a fighter, though, and he’s adjusting to life as a single father. “You gotta be there for the kids,” he told Kansas.com “You can’t just call it quits, because you have five people who depend on you.”
He’s doing it for himself, the kids, and for Casi.
