From 28 Weeks to Sixteen

SIXTEEN! On the second day of the second month of 2003, I had two babies!

I was so scared and had been in the hospital for weeks at a time due to preterm labor at only 20 weeks. By 28 weeks, I was fortunately staying in the hospital, 2 weeks in, and went into labor. I was told they had a 50% chance of survival. I had to leave the hospital without my babies, worrying whether or not they would make it through the night. There were many close calls and the first year was tough with oxygen tanks, apnea alarms, multiple specialists appointments and times two! These boys are strong and they are fighters. I am so lucky to have them in my life, to call them family and to watch them grow and become amazing humans.
