We planned to have a family together after marriage and a month later, we found out that we were pregnant! We later got shocking news that god has blessed us with twins to be due on April 8th, 2018.
Our little boy Andre is now 5 years old and when he heard the news about being a big brother he was just so excited about it. We then had an ultrasound to confirm the genders but we wanted it to be a surprise. The doctor did tell us that they are identical twins! So the gender reveal party we had, praying for girls, we actually saw pink balloons which was exactly what we wanted! As we were going through the rest of the pregnancy we’ve seen so many challenges as my wife was battling with sickness and weight lost. The doctor considered this a high risk pregnancy. Shortly towards the end of month 5, at 23 weeks and 5 days we had to rush to the hospital. Unfortunately she was in labor and had to give birth to the twins very early. Symphony Greene and Harmony Greene was born on December 15, 2017.
They were only 1 pound at birth and had to be on ventilator machines. They spent their whole life fighting in the nicu (neonatal intensive care) but was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and chronic lung disease due to how immature their organs were. We were told as they grow, they will grow out of it in most cases. Some days we saw them improve on breathing on there own, and managed to need less medications but both went through so many surgeries and procedures such as a tracheotomy and gastrointestinal tubes.
As they grew we saw improvement on growth and weight gain.
April 13th, 2018 the twins are still in the nicu. We saw a big change. Harmony went into a coma. Symphony got a lot sicker and shortly after passed away peacefully on July 14, 2018. Harmony is now going down the same path as her sister and the doctors are telling us to be prepared for the worse.
Our hearts so much hurt, as Harmony passed away this morning. Her and her sister has had a very tough battle. We were able to say our final goodbye as we were holding on tight to her. She passed away in our arms. These little girls meant the world to us as we got to see their little personalities and hear their voices. They knew we were there when they saw us walk in and hear our voices. We only ask for everyone that read our story and donates , to also keep us in your prayers, as our family mourn the loss of our baby girls we only wished to have home. We appreciate and are blessed to have caring and loving people. Mommy and daddy loves you Harmony and Symphony
