Sextuplets and Mom Doing Well

Yesterday, I reported the birth of sextuplets to a family who lives here in Lake Havasu, and that the babies were remarkably large and healthy. A later edit of mine noted that Mrs. Masche had been rushed into intensive care. I’ve followed up on this story, have printed part of it here, and also created a link, which you will probably want to follow. There are about 40 pictures available, I believe, beginning with her early learning of the multiple births, pictures of the dad, and ending with striking pictures of each of the babies when they were delivered yesterday. Late breaking news here says the mom continues to recover and will soon be released from the intensive care unit. It’s a day of rejoicing here in Lake Havasu as we all root for the Masche family.

Jenny Masche is wheeled into the delivery room to give birth to her sextuplets at Banner Good Samaritan in Phoenix.

Sextuplet mom ‘doing great’ after heart trouble

Jenny Masche, who suffered heart problems Monday after delivering sextuplets at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, is “doing great” and should be out of intensive care by morning, said Timothy Byrne, a cardiologist and director of Good Samaritan’s cardiac catheterization lab.

During normal pregnancy, a mother’s blood volume increases by as much as 30 percent, Byrne said, and much more when she is carrying six babies. After delivery, Masche’s body was flooded with excess blood and fluid no longer needed by the babies.

That caused a “transient decrease in heart muscle function,” Byrne said, that verged on heart failure but was not life-threatening. Masche was given medication to reduce fluid and ease breathing.

On Tuesday, he said, “she’s perfect. She’s breathing great. She’s done remarkably well, all things considered.”

They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

If the conception and birth of the children was natural, CONGRATULATION. But if artificial — through IVF, IVM, the so-called “Fertility drugs”, and “Assisted birth” — SHAME!; and a lesson to younger girls to be chaste, to preserve their virginity until they are married, to give up feminists’ sexual profligacy and dissoluteness, contraception, and criminal and godless murder of children in the womb as the so-called “unwanted pregnancy”.

Hi Dean and Esther. Lots of diapers, no doubt.

Esther, I’ve thought of offering my help; so far I haven’t seen any appeals, but I feel sure I’ll get my chance. That young mother will need all the help she can muster.

I have a feeling that there is a certain Sis. Buxton that will be helping to change those diapers more than once. Helping others is an awesome way to serve God. Love you lots.
