A mother I met through Abbyloopers, the online community for TAC moms, was admitted to the hospital 2 weeks ago with contractions. She was 25 weeks along with boy/girl twins. Although the were able to stop the contractions, monitoring found that her daughter wasn't doing well and the doctors began preparing the parents for the possibility that their daughter might not survive. They have done test after test, and none of the tests were returning any viable options. The current thought is that either her heart is failing (for an unknown reason) and cannot repair itself or that she has leukemia and her heart is failing due to that. Regardless, the situation is grim.
Her parents have already lost babies due to IC (incompetent cervix) and to not only have preterm labor complicating this very desired pregnancy but also to be told their daughter may not survive delivery... well, you can imagine this is heartbreaking for them. Currently, Olivia and Adam are gestating at 27 weeks. The parents have made the decision to not induce labor since there is no guarantee that doing so would be successful for either baby, but especially for baby Olivia. We know that it is possible to carry babies to term (or closer to term) with issues that look deadly but resolve, but we also know that there isn't a crystal ball to say that Olivia will be alright or that she even will survive. Right now, Adam is doing well; but the doctors aren't giving Olivia a bright prognosis.
Please say a prayer for Olivia and Adam, these little 27 week miracles... Just because the doctors have nothing more they can do doesn't mean there's no hope left. Their parents would appreciate as much hope as you can send!
