Christy Miller, 38, amazingly lived after giving birth to two children in the 29th week of her pregnancy. Despite being in a coma and experiencing severe hemorrhage, she heard the cries of her new twins.
The girl’s pregnancy was typical until week 18 when she began bleeding. The young mother then began to experience the worst tribulations. “At 18 weeks, I recall getting sick and seeing blood. I knew I had to get to the hospital right away because I was so frightened for the twins, Christie explains.
One of the infants was not developing, the physicians informed Christie after the checkup. Intrauterine growth retardation was to blame for this. The fetus grows and develops too slowly in this stage. “The doctors told me that Tyson had little chance of surviving when they examined me. And even if he is born, his life will be difficult due to potential illnesses. Miller recalls the words with fear, “I suppose that any mother is scared to hear such remarks.
Christie was back in the hospital at 22 weeks. The girl began bleeding once more. Her stay in the hospital lasted a week. Doctors speculated that the girl’s uterus may be under significant stress as a result of the bleeding because she was carrying twins. It turns out that I experienced a problematic sort of placental attachment—a fused placenta—during my pregnancy. When the placenta enters the uterine wall too deeply, it poses a life-threatening threat, according to the girl.
The doctors made the decision to do an emergency cesarean surgery at 29 weeks. Because one of the twins’ placenta had expanded too much into Miller’s uterus, they were concerned for Miller’s life as well as the lives of their children. The infant sat so deeply throughout the procedure that there were issues; the physicians had to figuratively “tear” the child away from his mother. Miller started to bleed internally as her uterine wall broke as a result.
She suffocated to death in her own blood. She slowed down her heartbeat so severely that she went into a coma. Doctors started battling for her life. The young mother’s life was ultimately saved by the physicians, but she remained too frail and unstable. She was admitted to the intensive care unit, where she spent the next 24 hours receiving 3 blood transfusions.
“When I first woke up, everything was like a fog. I was surrounded by cables, and a tube was in my mouth, so I was unable to talk. I was unsure of the survival status of my infants. I was solely concerned about this at the time, the woman says.
A few days later, when Miller awoke, the doctors informed the young mother that her kids were fine. Nevertheless, while they are in the neonatal care unit. The infants were light in weight. At birth, Chanel weighed 1.2 kilos, whereas Tyson was just 810 grams.
“I was permitted to visit the kids, but I was not permitted to leave the intensive care unit. And I desperately wanted to hold my babies in my arms, recalls Christie.
The only thing Christie’s husband could do was capture images to share with the kids online. Naturally, this cannot be equated to actual contact, but the girl was left with no choice. The physicians gave in and promised to take Miller to the kids, but it was obvious as soon as they were in the hallway that her stretcher would not go through the door. And because she was still making her way away from a complicated operation, the youngster was unable to move on her own.
“When I finally realized I could see them, I was overjoyed. My hopes were then dashed. I was so near to them while also feeling so far away, Christie says with bitterness.
Christie was transferred into a wheelchair when she started feeling better after an additional five days. She may now visit her brand-new children. They were so frail and helpless. I was merely surprised. Of course, my husband and the doctors warned me, but I still couldn’t believe I would witness this. My mother recalls that Tyson was the size of my hand.
Christie received her discharge six weeks later. Additionally, the family may only pick up the children after 12 weeks. In the lives of Adam and Christie, a new challenging phase started.
“Tyson was released, but due to the imminent surgery, we had to admit him back to the hospital. And Chanel required medical attention because she had chronic pneumonia and hip abnormalities, according to Christie.
