I havn't posted in a long time but I have been in hosptial for a long time. My Boys arrived Aug 4, I was 28 weeks 4 days. Robbie was 2.15 lbs and J.T. 1.11.lbs 39 and 36 cm in length. My water broke on Aug 1. I was given steriods and both boys were mircleously born breathing. They are in ICU and will be there for a long time but boyh are reamainong stable. J.T had stopped growing at 24 weeks, his placentia had come particially detached, He is definaly a mircle when I had the c-section the doctors had prepared me for him to be a still born and that could have caused Robbie's life to be treatened as well, but they are both here and doing so well.

I feel so very very lucky. I just wanted to share.

All the best to you all

WOW, that is amazing and I am glad to hear they are doing well now. I guess we have to weigh the negative with the positive. It must be easier to cope with babies in the NICU than to cope with having lost one of them. I am glad to hear they are doing well, and I can't wait to hear that you get to take them home.
