24 WEEKS MIRACLE TWINS

This is for my daughter, Emzsa and my first granchildren, Rhoem Gave and Zhamel Chale.

This is the letter my daughter wrote :

Hi, my name is Emzsa, 31 y/0 from Philippines. I was admitted last August 23, 2015 due to bulging bow and i was already fully dilated. I was in labor for almost three days. Magnesium sulfate and other meds were given to me to postpone the delivery since i was just only 24 weeks pregnant with twins. Two doses of steriods were given to me for the maturity of the lungs of my babies. I can't eat, drink and sleep since i need to try my best to relax so as not to break my bag of water while enduring the severe pain of contractions and I have also chills, fever, tachycardia and difficulty in breathing due to pleural effusion in my left lung. Despite all of these, i have delivered my babies normal section on August 26, 2015. Even the neonatal doctors explained to us the possibilities and the 50/50 chance of survival, i know in my heart that God will give life to our babies. Rhoem Gave (baby boy) and Zhamel Chale (baby girl) were weighing only 696 and 700 grams respectively when born. They both have respiratory distress syndrome, unstable blood sugar level, chronic lung disease, pneumothorax, necrotizing enteroclitis, hyperbilirubin, patent ductus arteriosus, bleed in the brain, streptococcus aureus infection, hernia, collapse rectum and many more. But both of them are thriving to survive all these rollercoaster premature issues. Thank God they are both strong and fighting. They are now in milk feedings thru oral gastric tubings and now weighing 1.1 kilos. But our struggle now is how to pay all the hospital bills and professional fees of the doctors. As of now they are admitted to St. Lukes Medical Center Global City. We plan to transfer them in a government hospital but not until they are both stable as advised by the doctors. They said my twins will be in neonatal intensive care unit for approximately three months. My parents are in U.S. but they are already senior citizens and my father also is half paralyzed. My brother who is also there, pays the credit bills. We asked for financial help from PCSO (government institution) but still not enough to pay almost 3 million pesos hospital bills exclusion of professional fees. We tried to ask help also from other support groups from other countries but no positive feedback from them. I am praying for financial miracle... I am knocking at the door of your hearts and asking for help... Please help my babies... Thank you... Thank you... Thank you so much... God bless you all
