After learning that one of their twin fetuses may likely die due to complications surrounding his health, a once devastated family have drawn comfort when they saw a sonogram showing one of the fetus supporting the other one.
Incredibly, a sonogram showed the tiny siblings holding hands.
Doctors told Ian and Brittani McIntire, of Hutchinson, Kansas, that they don’t think boy, already named Mason, will survive because he has a hole in his heart and an abnormal brain.
His only chance of survival would be heart surgery but they wouldn’t do heart surgery on him because of his brain.
We know we have a piece of them together that will last forever and it’s special to have.
Said Brittani, who has two other children with her husband.
If the fetus survives, doctors will deliver him and his twin C-section. But if he doesn’t, the family said they are happy to know his sister, who they’ve named Madilyn, is with him.
She’s the only one who can actually be there and holding onto him through it. So it’s comforting to know that if he does pass, he won’t be alone.
