I have a special announcement to make…I am now the aunt to two precious little nieces!!!
On Friday, my sister (who was then at 30 weeks) went in for an ultrasound. She had been in earlier in the week and the doctor had been concerned about the smaller of her twins. It looked like she wasn’t gaining weight, and that the cords were twisted.
At the ultrasound on Friday the doctor decided that they needed to get the babies out right away, and rushed Natasha back to have an emergency c-section. At 7:15 on Friday night, Jennifer Faith and Marie Natalia were born. Marie weighed in at just 2 pounds, 4 ounces, and Jennifer weighed in at 1 pound, 8 ounces. Thankfully, they are both doing goodwithout any major complications.
The babies were flown to Minneapolis at about midnight that night, where they were sent to a better NICU. The new mama is doing great, and is already out of the hospital. She can’t wait to be able to get to Minneapolis where her babies are!
I don’t have any good pictures yet, but hopefully I’ll have some good ones to post soon. I can say that both babies have lots of black hair…just like their daddy. 🙂
Thank you to everyone for all of your continued prayers and support. It’s been such a blessing to our whole family, and we are praising God that these precious babies are here without any major complications!
