My Doernbecher Story

Ao and Kai's Story

My twins where delivered via emergency c-section June 3 2012 at 33 weeks i went into labor at our all day appointments at OHSU. The reason for the c-section was because one of my twin girls had multiple heart defects. We where told this at our 5 month routine US for twins. They told us at this appointment that she wouldn't live and poses a danger to the other twin. As weeks went by we still where given horrible news each time we went it for an appointment. It's a blessing that I made it to 33 weeks with these girls. June 9 my daughter Ao had a heart cath and didn't make it. My other daughter Kai continued to thrive and do well. She was in the NICU for 3 weeks. During the time that we spent at OHSU they took such good care of us. Special thanks to the Ronald McDonald House, and The March of Dimes. What amazing charities. If it wasn't for them I don't know how our family would have made it through.
