Fight Against Maturity

Speaking of Christmas miracles

A Sacramento family had its own Christmas miracle after doctors performed emergency surgery to save twins when they thought the mother was dying of a heart attack.

Theresa Fuavai-Fatu’s heart stopped while she was at Mercy General Hospital in early November after complaining of having trouble breathing.

The 40-year-old mother was just 29-weeks pregnant and was not due until late January.

Without a pulse, she underwent an emergency Caesarean section, with doctors delivering a boy and a girl. As the obstetrician was closing the incision, the mother suddenly regained her pulse and opened her eyes.
