Can I ask everyone to spare a thought (or prayer) for friends of ours who today had their twin babies delivered.

Rey was 28 weeks pregnant today & due to one of the babies not growing, a decision was taken to deliver today to give both of them the best chance.

Luke was born at 4.32pm weighing in at 2lb 13oz & at 4.34pm Owen was born weighing just 1lb 15oz. Both are still being stabilised & in the words of their dad, things are looking ok-ish.

Please spare a thought for Andrew, Rey & their 4 yr old daughter Neve (who was also a premmie at 27 weeks weighing 1lb 12oz) as I am sure they will have some hard days along the way to the day that they take the boys home.

Thank you

Noreen

Send them our love too please Noreen. We always felt very lucky when our twins were born very healthy and were even overdue. It must be a very desperate time for them. We'll certainly keep them in our thoughts. Justin and Family

I am a great believer in the power of prayer nad positive thinking.  I will remeber your friends and all their family in my prayers.  

Modern medicine is wonderful, My dear goddaughter Rosie was born at 27 weeks with a very poor prognosis.  She is now a very happy & clever 8 year old who has cerebal palsey but can do all the things her older sisters can do, but somethings take her a little longer.

Please let us know how they go on.

Helen, Kathy & Joe

Many thanks for your kind & encouraging words.

I haven't heard any more news & much as I would love to know how things are going, I want to also leave them all alone for the moment.

As soon as I hear any more, I will let you all know.

Thanks again.

Noreen

Hi All

I have spoken to Luke & Owen's grandparents this evening & to say the least, it has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for the past 5 days.

Both have been on ventilators & Luke has actually been the more poorly when it was Owen (the smaller twin) who was expected to have problems. Owen was put on Cpap today & managed 2 hours of breathing on his own. Luke has been more unstable & they had to completely sedate him for a while but he is slightly improved today.

Poor Rey has been through the wars as well & was very ill over the weekend but again has improved over the last couple of days.

Neve is a little out of sorts, missing school because it is half term & is not impressed that she got brothers & no sister - but she'll love them anyway!! 

So, some good, some not so good but with Rey & the 2 babies still with us, the prayers & thoughts must be working - thank you.

Noreen

I send my best to this family - sending lots of love and light and trying to visualize the babies growing into strong boys.

 I have been taking my daughter to Aprona in Estepona for nearly a year now and I see many premature twins.  There are babies that were born at 24 weeks.  At this stage, the best we can all do is send them lots of love and light.  As someone mentioned earlier, technology today is incredible.  So there is a lot of hope.

Best wishes to the family through these difficult days.  May each day bring them more and more positive news.

Loves Shani

Thanks to everyone for their good wishes for Luke & Owen.

I will give an update towards the end of this week. They all have enough to deal with without me phoning, although it is very hard not to!

Keep thinking of them & praying for them please.

Thanks again.

Regards

Noreen

It's suprising how strong babies can be, sometimes they can be much stronger than we are, I am sure that in a few weeks Luke & Owen will be home and treasured by their proud parents.  Our prayers and love are sent to all the family.

I don't have a full update on the babies but they have been moved from St Thomas's in London to their local hospital in Kent which means that Rey & Andrew can at least be at home with Neve some of the time.

However, I think things must be going relatively well as I got a lovely surprise this afternoon - an invitation to visit!!!

Wasn't expecting that at all as we had to wait 5 weeks to see Neve so I am taking that as a positive. I will update when I have seen them which will probably be over the weekend, all being well.

Thank you to all for keeping them in your thoughts & prayers.

Regards

Noreen

Thank you all for your thoughts & prayers for Luke & Owen.

We are going to see them tomorrow evening & I had a photo to my mobile yesterday of Rey giving them both a cuddle.

I'll let you know all about them over the weekend.

Thanks again.

Noreen
