Jackie and Ryan are the proud parents of Mason 2 1/2 and Emily 10 months. They are now expecting twin girls! Currently Jackie is 26 1/2 weeks and in the hospital in Pontiac for the remainder of the pregnancy. The following is a time line of the events of this pregnancy. 

January 25th they announced the news on Facebook! 

Febuary 7th the doctor couldn't see the barrier between the twins so they were sent to Pontiac to see a specialist. 

Febuary 26th found out it is two GIRLS 

March 27th the girls are diagnosed with Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome TTTS. A serious disease of the placenta where blood flow is distributed unevenly and can cause severe health issues or even death when left untreated. 

They were then introduced to an amazing foundationTwin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome Foundation. They came in contact with Mary who set them up with airfare and hotel in Miami, FL for the surgery. 

April 8th surgery was preformed in Miami, FL by one of the best surgeons that could be found. 

The girls names are Callie and Kennedy. The day after surgery Kennedy's bladder became visible! 

One month after surgery no signs of TTTS and the blood clots in the womb appear to be dissolving. 

May 13 during the ultrasound is when they saw that the barrier detached. This is a result of the TTTS. This puts the girls at very high risk so Jackie and the girls will be in Pontiac until the girls make their arrival. Which hopefully isn't for a few more weeks at least. They are being monitored 24/7 and they will most likely be delivered early by an emergency c section. 

May 16 girls are looking good. No signs of distress to TTTS. Every day is a milestone. 

So I would like to set up this fund to help Jackie and Ryan through this time. They are under a lot of stress and if we can help decrease some of that it would be great. Any donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
