A run to the doctor and a baptism...

A phone call came from the hospital; There is a twin born and the mother died, please can you help?
We drove to the hospital and met the father with his uncle. The baby's were still laying in the delivery room. Thy were born by a Cesarean operation and the mother passed away some hours after that..We filled the forms and took the babies home, they were not yet fed and they were already more than 18 hours old. The father and the uncle were coming to Amecet later.
Martha and Mary are weighing together 3300 gram. Martha, the first born weighs 40 gram more than her sister. They were a bit deheydrated and weak. We fed them carefully and they drank!! Martha 20 ml and Mary 10 ml, but then she stopped breathing. We rushed her to Dr. Engulu's clinic, he came into action and got her breathing again.... We were shocked, it all happened so fast. They put an IV line in her hand and we got instructions what to do and we went back to Amecet. 
The uncle and the father had just arrived. I explained what has happened. The uncle is a Priest in the Catholic church and he wanted to baptise them. So a cup of water was given and he baptised both of the little girls, the father was holding them, one by one. It was touching and I know it ment a lot to them. After the baptism, we took them inside and gave Mary the medicines and put her on an IV drip. The little grils are probably 6 weeks born too early and that is why Mary has problems with her breathing. We hope when she is a bit stronger, it will go better. Please pray for those little girls, they are not out the battle zone yet....
