We were sent home from the hospital on Sept 10th to await our second son (Baby B).
We named him Bennett James. We decided Bennett was a perfect fit because it starts with B and it means “little blessed one” in Latin.
All the Drs agreed that a delayed interval delivery (having one twin and keeping the second pregnancy) is pretty controversial. We had a hard time even finding a Dr. that had seen a case like this at all. Our chances of carrying Bennett to a viable stage (24 weeks) was still pretty low but we just kept praying for a miracle and taking it one day at a time.
On September 11 we saw Dr. Wall, a Perinatologist out of Overlake Hospital in Bellevue. We both just love him and felt great about his optimistic attitude about our beautiful baby boy. He spent a lot of time looking at the baby and got some great pictures.
He scheduled a Cerclage, a surgery to sew my cervix shut, for the following Monday, September 15th.
