Well, I can't believe that I'm joining this particular forum.
I'm writing this on my cellphone so this note will be very short.
Had emergency c/s yesterday as baby A's heartrate was flatlining. She was doing fine after birth with some assisted breathing but last nite they noticed she was having siezures, so after medication, her brain activity not very good. Just wait and see, she is very doped up. I have only seen her twice since her birth 29 hours ago, asleep each time.
Baby B was born with a blocked oesaphagus and will be needing surgery. She was whisked off to a surgical pediatric hospital the other side of the city, 5 hours after birth. I got to hold her for 5mins.
So here I am, in maternity with c/s pain, baby A one level and 3 long corridors up, and baby B half the city away.
And all I can do is wait and see.
The positive is that baby a's weight was 5lb8oz and baby b 4lb6oz which means they are in a fighting fit position to handle all the rigorous tests they are both going thru.
I will write the full story when I get home.
The staff are trying to move baby a and I to a hospital closer to baby b.
I will try to update when I know more.
Please keep my babies in your prayers.

Oh Tas, I'm sorry they can't be with you right now.

But very healthy weights and I'm glad that you were able to get them delivered as soon as they found an issue. You'll all be in my thoughts.

Tas,

Congrats on the birth of your babies. :grouphug:

I'm so sorry to hear that they are in separate hospitals and you aren't able to see them as you'd like. :(

Congratulations on your babies! So good to know that your doctors reacted immediately once they discovered something could be critical and also good to see the hospital system trying to find a way for the three of you to be close together again as soon as possible. Both babies need you and you need to recover from the c-section, so travelling all over town sounds dreadful.

We will be keeping your girls and your whole family in our prayers!

I'm trying to pump colorustum every three hours.
Baby A (Liara) will hopefully get the 4mls i've managed so far. They want to wait for her to grow a bit more over the next week when they will do an MRI. She is the one to most worry about even tho Sierra is the farthest away.
I feel lost and helpless.

Congratulations on the delivery of your girls. I am sorry that it didn't go well, but take heart in the fact that both your girls are getting the treatment that they need. Do what you can to be with them, and take your down time to rest and recover so you have the energy to take care of them when they come home. Keep us posted on how things are going :grouphug:

How did Sierra's surgery go this morning? and how is Liara doing today? I continue to think of you girls.
I am sorry you are feeling lost and helpless, :hug: but just keep in mind they are getting the help they need right now.
