c section counting

I was having a conversation with mu cousin about child birth today. I had an emergency c section with my son (although I didnt want to push anyway) she has gone through both . One thing we botg remembered while the c section was being performed, there was counting. I remember the nurse counting backwards from 20 like 5 different times. It may have been more or even less, I was so doped up and tired by that point I dont exactly remember how MANY sets... just the counting.

Did any of you experience that? Do you know what the counting was for? Im going to consult Mr Google now but was curious

I had four c-sections, one was emergency (second), and two were scheduled (third and fourth). I don't remember any counting.

 My first born was delivered via c-section.  I was awake but was never asked to count or heard anyone counting.

They count surgical equipment to make sure nothing is left inside. They count backwards while you go to sleep. I don't know of any other counting.

How are you feeling? If you don't mind me asking.

Physically, I am not doing too bad. Emotionally, I am a wreck. I am heartbroken beyond belief. I'm just numb and doing the things I have to do right now. I break out crying at random times and can't control it. I cried a lot today. It was a rough day.

Thank you for asking. I appreciate everyone's concern.

I know theirs nothing I can say to make you feel better but prayers for you and your family. Noone deserves this.
