Linda Ackley went to Allegiance Hospital Friday morning thinking she had a hernia. By Friday night, she had given birth to a 10-pound baby.

Not just a baby, a 10 POUNDER!

It’s an amazing story when you hear about the couple. Linda and Mike are high school sweethearts that have been married 24 years and thought they were unable to have kids. Not only that, Linda contracted a bacterial infection that put her in a week-long coma 2-years ago. Doctors thought she wouldn’t pull through.

Their apartment, as you would suspect, is not ready for a newborn, so family and local businesses sprang in to action donating car seats and clothing.

Best quote comes from hubby Mike: “Some people have nine months to prepare. I had (15) hours.”
