Sadly though there is a twist to their story,Tamara started getting sick,more than just simple morning sickness unable to keep anything down and having severe abdominal pain as well she called my Mom to take her to the hospital.
Tests done at St.Marys hospital and in the weeks to come revealed a tumor on her pancreas causing the problems.Treatment was medication at that point which was effective,relieved her pain and she was able to eat.
Six weeks later the pain is more severe and she's taken by ambulance to the hospital, tests found that the tumor had enlarged considerably and she was hospitalized for five days.In a procedure to help alleviate her pain they drained fluid from the tumor then sent her home.Hopefully the fluid wouldn't build back up too fast giving the twins a chance to develop further along before birth.
On her Dr's visit the following Thursday to check the the twins for Twin to Twin transfusion syndrome,a condition that happens with twins when there is one placenta for a food source,the news wasn't good.The condition has begun with the boy's and time is of the essence if they are to survive.Her doctor wants her at John Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland the next day where a doctor who specializes in a laser surgery to separate the placenta can be done,its their only chance to survive.
After having to wait for approval from the insurance company to have the procedure done in Maryland it wasn't scheduled till Monday morning at John Hopkins.They left that morning from Virginia hopeful though very worried for their son's.
Once there and checked in they find out the trip was to only hear the words no mother or father wants to hear,there are no heartbeats,they died.Devastated they drive back to Virginia and find that Tamara will have to be induced to labor her babies knowing there won't be a happy ending or bringing them home.
Tamara's medical problems with her pancreas aren't over either and before leaving the hospital they did another test that found she has a blood clot as well.
The family has been struggling financially for month's,Tim trying to fight through work to provide for his family and after radiation treatment going back to work 4 days later .
