Today, our spotlight is on CMOTC MOM Mea R.'s singleon, Cole, and twins, Anderson and William.
Cole was born at 31 weeks 4 days and weighed 4lb 4oz. He was in the NICU for 6 weeks and 1 day. Cole was born with SVT (high heart rate) and took medication up to age 4, he was off of the medication for almost a year before having another episode (260-280 bpm) a couple weeks ago, so he resumed medication for now.
The twins were born at 32 weeks 6 days. Anderson was 4lb 11oz. and had a four week and 3 day stay in the NICU. William was 5lbs 2oz at birth and stayed in the NICU four weeks and 1 day.
Today Cole is a bright 5 year old, who is currently is attending his local special needs preschool as a mentor in the pre-k room. He enjoys playing legos, playing X-box with his dad, cooking with his mom and most of all spending time with his two younger brothers Anderson & William!
The twins will be celebrating their 2nd birthday soon. Anderson enjoys coloring, playing with trucks and being his older brother’s, Cole, shadow. William enjoys playing with playdough, reading books and hanging with is older brother too!
Thank you Mea for sharing their stories with us. We are very happy that all three are doing so well and hope that Cole will be off medication again soon! We are very honored to celebrate your very handsome little blond men with you!
