    Texas Woman Induced Labor for Dying Husband to Hold Baby

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/texas-woman...ry?id=15555818

    Savannah Aulger will never have snapshots with her father on her first birthday, on Christmas or at a school event.

    The only picture she will ever have of them is the one as sweet as it is heartbreaking. Hooked up to an oxygen mask at the hospital, the man she would call dad cradled her in his arms for 45 minutes.

    He sobbed. He smiled. And there was no doubt that he loved her.

    "He would talk to my stomach when I was pregnant," Diane Aulger said of her husband. "He was so excited for her."

    The next day, Mark Aulger slipped into a coma.
    ------

    A home movie on Christmas showed a pregnant Diane Aulger, 31, handing out gifts to their four children, the oldest of whom is 15. Mark, 52, who had just received the news that he had beaten cancer, played the guitar, providing a soundtrack for the Christmas morning festivities.

    On Jan. 3, life threw a curveball.
