Nine, Nine, Fraulein
22 March 2012
Nine years ago this morning, I gave birth to these two little guys via emergency C-section, at 31 weeks' gestation. The identical twin on the left, Robby, was twice Jack's size, whereas they had been non-significantly different in size just one week earlier. Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome led to severe Hydrops Fetalis, which proved fatal to our sweet angel baby three days later.
Meanwhile, the itty bitty survivor on the right, Jack, is now this young, albeit still petite, man:
Happy 9th birthday to my sons, Robert William & Jack River! Mommy and Daddy love you both so very much. ♥
