The Richards Family
Emery and Adalie are Mono-Mono twins that were born 8 weeks early. After a NICU stay for both girls, we were able to go home to join their other 3 siblings. After 9 days of being home, Emery stopped breathing and was rushed to our local hospital via ambulance. They then life flighted her to a hospital in Duluth, MN where it was determined she had Entero Meningitis. When it was time for her breathing tube to be removed, they realized it was stuck. The doctors then air lifted her to St. Paul, MN. Since being in St. Paul, she has had trouble coming off of breathing support. She has been having procedures to open up her airway each week. Adalie recently wasn't feeling well while being home. She was brought to the local emergency room and air lifted to Duluth, MN. It was determined she has Entero Meningitis, just as her sister did the month before. She will be recovering in the NICU in Duluth, MN for now.
