“They are my first born. I can’t describe the joy we felt when we heard they were going to be twins. It’s not common, is it? And now they are both struggling to survive while we are feeling helpless.”
“There was nothing to tell us this would happen. Even then, we though they would be fine. Premature babies born in the 8th month are healthy most of the time. It is our fate that our babies had trouble breathing, or developed an infection. The doctor said they needed to be in the hospital for a while and treatment. The medicines cost nearly Rs. 4,500 every day. Only this can keep them alive and well. Hopefully, in a week or two, they will be well, and we can take them home.”
Rajendran said that he gets to see his children after 5PM every day. He is in the hospital on most days by his wife’s side. She has been shifted to a general ward and gets called in to feed the babies from time to time.
“They are getting better. I can tell. They will come home with us.”
