Finding new moms...

I know that it's been a while since I last posted something.

But I really wish the new moms had something more. Something they could hold or have better support.

That can be the best thing to ease a mothers worries. To know her family, her support system is there for her. I wish that everyone who has read my blog would write a note or send me a message. I would be more then happy to talk to anyone to discuss what is happening and not to give up.

I wish more families took the initiative to learn about TTTS. If they could ease the stress a little bit, I could help.

deciding on what treatment.

I have been asked this a lot over the past 2 years. "How did you choose the treatment option?".

Well, is a combination of  what you the mom or dad feel is right for your family and how your TTTS has developed.

Such as the laser treatment would have save both of my sons had it not been for the anterior placenta. And due to that had we chosen to terminate one son, the other more then likely would have survived. But, we did not have this information durring the pregnancy.

We can rest knowing that we gave both sons a fighting chance.

We knew we couldn't have lived with our selves if we went through with the selection and then to find out we would have had both, had we done nothing.

You basically have to search you own heart to decide. Also know, that no one can judge you. Parents, siblings, clergy, strangers, they will but shouldn't.
