My wife and I knew that we're having twins since early stage of pregnancy. Our doctor explained that the type of twin pregnancy is Monoamniotic-Monochorionic and is susceptible to complications which we hope and prayed would not happen.
Despite of all precautionary measures and almost bi-weekly medical check up, my wife suddenly experienced abdominal hardening and the twins were not moving on her 8th month gestation (February 10, 2021).
Emergency Caesarian Section was done same day later. But because they're premature babies, Saoirse Baby B which was born small in size (2.5 lbs) and was diagnose with Coarctation of the Aorta and the other baby is Sophie Baby A (4.8 lbs) which we are glad she only had minor complications, they're staying at the NEONATAL ICU for bolus medications with life saving support machines attached.
As a parent, seeing our twin little ones fighting bravely with all the tubes and needles that have caused bruises on their tiny little bodies, I need to be even stronger than them and fight on this tough battle with them.
Honestly, what we have and the efforts we've made were not enough to sustain the high demand of costly medications required. Our salary can't barely sustain 7 days cost in NICU.
My wife was discharged ahead of time so that we could cut the cost. She was discharged with high hopes that by doing so, it can add to our twins' funds for treatment instead.
As per Pedia Cardiologist's advise, Twin B (Saoirse) needs to be stabilized, has to gain more weight and strength. From their, re-assessment and pertinent blood works will be done again to see if she will be fit for early heart surgery. Still a long way travel. We're hoping and praying she'll overpass them all.
We sincerely seek for your kindness and graciousness to help and create miracles for the babies.
Every bit of your kind donation counts and deeply appreciated. Please help us pray for baby Sophie and Saoirse.
May our Almighty, heal them.
Thank you, everyone.
God bless you and you family.
