Finally, Good Baby News!


Every time I go to the doctor, the news has been bad. One of the triplets died. One will most certainly die. When the second one passes, it could very well take the third with it.

Well, enough of that! Today we received wonderful news. Although sicky baby will almost certainly pass away soon after birth, for the first time we’re looking with optimism toward meeting her. The doctor was surprised at how well she was doing. “Delighted” was the word that he used, and I’m delighted as well. She’s doing so well that there isn’t a reason not to expect her to survive until birth. The other baby is doing extremely well, also. Hooray! Now I can definitely spend the day writing with a lighter heart.

Wow! It sounds like you are haing a tough time. My youngest son Sam was born with only half a heart. I invite you to come and read my blog www.comefollowmewatsons.blogspot.com
My book has just been released about our experiences with Sam and with God.
We will be praying for you.:)

I stumbled onto your blog today and was touched by your story. In 2000, I found myself pregnant with twins. I lost one baby to TTTS, and carried them both the remaining 21 weeks of my pregnancy. I have a beautiful, healthy surviving twin and I know the heartache for the baby I only held in my womb. You have a wonderful outlook on what life has handed you. I wish you and yours only the best.

I came across your blog today and wondered how the 3rd baby is?

Mercedes said...

Hi Holly!

The babies were born a week ago, and the one died after five hours. She was absolutely beautiful. Her sister is in NICU because she was so premature, but she's getting stronger every day and seems to be perfectly healthy in every way. We hope to bring her home in a month or so. Thank you so much for asking!

I'm so glad that you're third baby is perfectly fine; hopefully the joy will outweigh the heartache. I just found you on here this morning, and you just seem like the loveliest family. I wish you all the best.
