TTS- They have gone to their Heavenly Home

My sister just found out today at 18 weeks that she is having girls which is great and very exciting news. The bad news is that they have at least level II TTS. Does anyone have personal experience with TTS? I have done a lot of research online and it seems like there are great treatments out there with high success rates.

Re: TTS

I didn't actually have ttts, but since mine shared a placenta I was monitored extra carefully, one things that I had heard that help are drinking lots of protein drinks like ensure.

Re: TTS

They had a long day of testing done yesterday and ended up having surgery today. The surgery lasered 16 connections between the babies, took 2 liters from the bigger baby, and put holes in the membrane between then. The babies each have 50% of the placenta so that was great news. My sister will spend the night in the hospital tonight then go to the doctor on Monday. The next 72 hours are when the babies are at the most risk. 67% they both live, 92% chance that one survives.
