Saw this in my hometown newspaper today and thought you all might be interested. Pretty amazing.

I just saw the parents interviewed on Fox News. They were delivered because of the mother's "high blood preasure". It is truly a miracle that they are all okay.

Isn't that truly amazing?!?! They can do such wonderful things with babies these days. I was impressed when the hospital I was at had a 6 month gestational baby there who was less than 2lbs. She did very well. Her mother also suffered from pre-e and IUGR. Totally amazing!!!
