Diana Stone Speaks Out: An Update On The TwinsKatherine Stone
We told you earlier this week about Diana Stone, a young mom whose water broke at 18weeks while pregnant with twins. Her story of the initial reaction in the hospital to her decision not to induce, and to try to keep the babies, touched the hearts of tens of thousands of our readers across the country. You responded in massive numbers with love and support.
Today, Diana has shared an update on her blog. We encourage you to go and read it, but wanted to give you some quick highlights since so many are asking how she’s doing.
First, and most importantly, Diana is doing as well as can be expected in a situation like this. She writes, “We have been assured at 23 weeks they will start to throw everything they’ve got at us to get the babies bigger, stronger, and able to survive from there on out. Right now the main concern for the staff is the risk of infection to me. I had a total rupture so I continue to leak fluid. But the first 24-72 hours are the highest risk and we’ve passed that now.”
She has said on Facebook and Twitter that she is extremely grateful for all of the support shown via the internet. She is also very pleased at how the staff at University Medical Center is responding to her now: ” … the apology, explanation, and further treatment at our hospital has been phenomenal. We found out that it was a lack of resident communication that started all of this, and we are grateful for the way the heads of each department have stepped up and made the changes needed to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
So glad to hear it! Be sure to visit Diana’s blog to find out more and continue to follow her story.
