Update: St. Louis Park Mom Delivers Sextuplets
I just updated this story on Sunday with optimism that Brianna Morrison was going to be able to hold on to at least her 26th week to deliver her sextuplets.
Unfortunately, they were delivered yesterday, the same day that Jenny Masche delivered her 6 babies at 30 weeks gestation.
Brianna's babies arrived at just 22 weeks weighing between 11 ounces and 1 pound, 3 ounces, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
I don't feel good about the weight and gestation of these babies. 22 weeks gestation is not long enough in the womb, I should know...My son was born at 24 weeks and that was definitely NOT long enough.
My prayers are with Brianna and Ryan. Many miracles are performed in the NICU everyday, let's hope the babies are strong enough to make it through the next few weeks.
