Phoenix and his twin brother Malachi were born prematurely by emergency c-section. Their Mother discovered her pregnancy when she went to the doctor for missing her cycle and was told she had undergone a tubal ligation and wasn't pregnant. After an exam the doctor said she had a "missed miscarriage" and wanted to do a D&C.

Misty refused. She preferred to wait to see if her body would do this on
its own. Weeks later she was told she was pregnant with one baby. At 4 months pregnant, Phoenix & Malachi's father was killed in a car wreck . Later, Misty was told she is expecting twins. She chose names. Though her heart is breaking, she has other children and these two wonderful Gifts from God on the way. She must go on. Then the news came that the babies were sharing not only an amniotic sack (bag of water) they were also sharing the same placenta. (MOMO TWINS) This makes it nearly impossible for both babies to survive to birth. As a matter of fact, she was told no less than three times that Phoenix was dead.

A few weeks before the birth Misty was told Phoenix had a "small hole" in his heart. Nothing bad, that they would give him some medication for 24 hours after he was born and all would be well. Phoenix indeed had a small hole in his heart-along with several other heart defects. There was a name for it-Tetralogy of Fallot. He would need to be kept calm at all times. No crying. Several surgeries throughout his life. For the first few months he would have to be fed very small amounts around the clock as to not stress his heart. He also had to gain weight slowly so his damaged heart could keep up.
