Triplets with mom today went home in Tokmak
Triplets, which were born in Zaporizhzhya perinatal center on October 24, were at children’s hospital for almost three months. Today they were discharged home.
As reported by “Industrialna” the boys in the family of Nikolai and Maria Gordienko were born with very little weight and the first week of life nursed their experts of the perinatal center. First came to light Nikita with a weight of 1290 grams, and the growth of 40 cm, the second – Kostya – 1230 gr 38 cm, and the third Elijah – 910 grams and 34 cm.
After prolonged treatment at the regional hospital, the condition of children has improved, they’ve gained weight.
-All children underwent resuscitation and then admitted to our neonatal unit, – said doctor of triplets Julia Tokareva. Today we write out them. For premature infants the fact that they have gained in weight and in height, and equaled the performance with newborn children is a good indicator. Of course, there can still be a little lag, but it’s all adjusted parents and timely treatment to the experts.
They will continue to occur in our hospital. The first visit should occur within 6 months, but for now they must eat the mixture and, possibly, change them, selecting as comfortable as possible. Over time, these kids will be shown massage, physiotherapy, physiotherapy to strengthen the body. Definitely need to make neurosonogram. And then everything depends on the recommendations of a pediatrician, neurologist, ophthalmologist.
In fact, now all indicators boys look like newborn babies. Their adjusted age is equal to several days after birth. We are very attached to the kids during these months. Triplets for us is rare. Often come two at a time. I hope that all will be well with them and they will come to us even stronger.
Masha said that in the last few weeks, she especially waited for the day of discharge – the boys get older, require more attention, and to pay him all at the same time very hard.
-Thanks to the medical team for help by day and by night without them just wouldn’t cope, says Maria. – Calm all at once hard. One on hand, the second swing with the other hand in the cradle, and the third leg. In General, I don’t want their hands to teach, because then I can’t set them aside for a minute. Yes, and to take all simultaneously, my arms don’t. Try them in the cradles to soothe. The more I have of triplets – Kostya and Ilya twins. Between them is enormous! Even when in intensive care lying, if it was bad one, then another. But when Kostya was transferred from intensive care, then two days later was transferred to Ilya, because he reached for his brother. Ilya and Kostya even spirit. I think I namuchaetes with these speedsters (laughs. – Ed.)
Nikita – more independent. First out of the ICU. Now he is very strong – this big.
-How they are fed, get a night’s sleep possible?
Feed mixtures. Different tried and will pick up. Eat every three hours. Here all of the time. Here are so fed – enclose a bottle of something or take turns running from one to the other. And mixtures and diapers go very quickly. Of course, I’ll be home to save with pampers, put on diaper. But in the hospital it was impossible without them.
-Who will help?
We live with her mother in law, so the help will be. I’m very glad. Most of us are waiting for the husband – he already wants to play with his sons, but I told him to carry them constantly will get used and what I be doing (laughs. – Ed). A little brother waiting for us, Nicholas, who is a year and a half. He has, of course, was daddy’s boy while I was lying there with the triplets. Miss him too and am looking forward to meeting.
Often parents of triplets presented apartment, you are not promised?
-The mayor of Sochi has promised that there will be something to solve the issue. Maybe it will turn out to acquire accommodation for us if you help sponsors. However, when it is not yet clear. But we did not give birth, of course. Just wanted a girl. But when I got pregnant, I already felt it would be a boy. Even with the name undecided. Wanted Illya. And when the ultrasound told us that having twins, I was hoping that a boy and a girl – naive (laughs. – Ed.). Of course, the triplets didn’t but these children God has given us and we are happy.
I sometimes consult with family, which was born triplets in October 2017. The girl herself came at me, and we communicate well. I’m glad to be able to ask her questions. And she helped us a lot and gave the stroller to trained in which they their drove. So we get home, and we have everything and everyone is waiting for.
Before you go on the road Kostya, Nikita and Elijah slept, ate and was ready for her first journey home.
