In November 2005 i gave birth to identical boy triplets @ 26 wks they were born. Right away i know something was wrong because i didn't hear any crying at all (i mean come on their are three babies. you think i would of heard something) But i never did they were rush to neonatal nicu. after they had sew me back up and wheeled me to see my babies before I went to recovery. The pediatrician keep saying your babies are really sick. your babies are really sick. but i was really out of it to understand. the next day it time to go and see the babies and i just couldn't bear to see my babies like that. When i finally did go and see them you. to me they looked great. so then i was like what i am worried about. i had been hearing of these babies who had been born pre-matured but eventually made a full recovery and got to go home with their mommies. Well i think it was the second day i was there My son Victor Diego had to have surgery on his heart at 2 days old. well after that the doctor had told us that they had svere bleeding and swelling in their brain. They were also having little seizures. She had said that they were four levels of swelling . Levels 1&2 you could recover from but level 3 you could possibly recover from but you would suffer some brain damage . and we know how much till they got older.
Level 4 after your swelling goes away you will be a complete vegetable for the rest of your life. Well 2 our babies had level 4 the last triplet Nicholas had between level 3 & 4. so we had to make a decision to take them of their life suppport or keep them alive. they also had machine that was breathing for them. becuase their little lungs couldn't do it.
So we made the decision to end their suffering and pull them off their life suppor. Do you know hard it is hold your child when they are gasping for air and their is nothing you can do about it. they just keep loooking at me like why mommy am i leaving when we just met. that's the reason i rasing money so mother has to go through what i went through. So march of dimes can up with areason why some many babies are dying from prematurity.
