We worked tirelessly throughout the night and next day to keep them alive, with the help of nurses and a visiting doctor from the States. The second day, one of the babies stopped breathing four times and needed resuscitation. Unfortunately, he never came back to us after the last resuscitation. He passed away Saturday night around 10:50pm. The mother and grandmother were present and the rest of the family came the next morning to bury the body.
We thank God that the second baby boy is still alive and thriving now. He is no longer experiencing difficulty breathing and is getting stronger every day. He continues to take breast milk through the NG tube and does skin to skin contact with his mom and grandma throughout the day. He is now off of all his medications. Please continue to pray for this little one as he is not out of the "danger zone" yet. By God's grace, we look forward to seeing him grow and thrive. Pictures of this little guy to come soon!
