Kassis Family

 
On April 30, 2017 around three am we went to hospital due to Jennifer experiencing upper quadrant pain. I was suffering from extreme preeclampsia know as the HELLP syndrome. The babies were given a shot to help develop their lungs and we thought things would settle down but with in a few hours the babies were delivered via emergency c-section. The babies were born around 6 pm at 26 weeks gestation. Rylie was 1.14 oz, Sophie 1.9 oz and Zoie 1.12 oz. I underwent emergency surgery due to a ruptured liver. I spent a couple of days in ICU not even knowing if the girls were okay yet. Babies and mom all began their journey to recovery. All of us endured several obstacles but eventually everyone was able to fight through their own battles. For me, I had surgical complications with a large hematoma surrounding the liver and postpartum depression. The babies having PDA’s, Level 1 brain bleeds, eye concerns, urinary tract infections, hernia surgery, MRSA, becoming septic, and finally learning how to breath, suck and swallow. The babies spent 100-120 days in the NICU enduring the roller coaster ride of ups and down that all premature babies face. I think the scariest time was when Rylie and Sophie became septic and then Zoie’s set back from hernia surgery. The long weeks of learning to take a bottle were very trying and fighting to go home with no G-tubes. Eventually, all the girls went home healthy with no monitors or equipment. Today, the girls are doing great! They are nine months old and weigh around twelve pounds. All are beginning to reach some milestones. We give praise to the good Lord for his mercy and love, thanks to all the extraordinary medical staff and medical equipment involved in our care, and to our families and friends for their support.
