Being his first and only child at the time, Frankie would occasionally grow cold feet every time Lexi was out of his sight because he felt like his heart was just walking around and he literally had no control over it. It was like a heartbreak.

It all spins back to when Lexi was being born. Turns out that during his birth, he went for a solid 5 minutes without oxygen.

He was born without oxygen and that was the most traumatic experience to me. I prayed for him every second.

Despite being 4 years since the traumatizing experience, Frankie still holds Lexi so dear to him and believes he is a delicate child. Recalling the happening of events on that fateful day, Frankie narrated;

When I was driving from the hospital heading home, just before Maureen and Lexi were discharged, I was in autopilot. I got into an accident because I was just driving and my mind was in a daze. Only thing I was thinking about was Lexi the whole time.
