GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - It was May 25, 2021, when pregnant mom Nicole Dramse went to her midwife in Grand Island because of unusual pain.

That’s when a split-second decision was made to take Dramse to Saint Francis, a move that likely saved her and the baby. Once there, the maternity department jumped into action to find out what was wrong.

It turns out she had a uterine rupture, which nurses and doctors at Saint Francis say has a very high mortality rate due to the significant internal bleeding.

But on that day in May, the nurses and doctors weren’t going to let this story have a bad ending, and both mom and baby Kyzer were saved. Now, a year later, Nicole is overwhelmed with gratitude.

“Literally they’re amazing.. I can’t thank them enough, we can’t do enough for them. No thank you is ever going to be good enough for them. They’re truly rock stars here and lifesavers,” Nicole Dramse said.

Saint Francis doctors say their training prepares them for moments like this one last May.

“My training just like every one of my colleagues is about prevention of bad outcomes and we’re pretty good at it,” Dr. Michael Ryskin said. “We don’t see a lot of bad outcomes.”

After Kyzer was born, they air-lifted him to Omaha with his dad Matt. Then a couple of days later, Nicole was able to join her husband by Kyzer’s side.
