A local mom has a lot to be thankful for after going through heart failure and an emergency c-section more than a month ahead of her baby’s due date.

Nikki Maxwell was on vacation in Texas when it happened. She’s been anxious to get back to Kansas City to get follow-up care and be with her sons, ages 3 and 7.

Shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday, a Children’s Mercy Hospital medical flight landed at Charlie Wheeler Airport in downtown Kansas City with Maxwell and her newborn onboard. It was a moment Maxwell had been waiting weeks for.

She went to Texas with her mom and two boys on October 16th to spend time with them before her baby was born. Baby Aaliyah’s due date was November 24th.
