The Harris family calls Addison, Kinsley and Savannah their little Christmas miracles. Given that the odds of having identical, female triplets can range from one in 60,000 to one in two million-who can blame them?
“After all we’ve been through the past eight months, to have three healthy babies, we feel extremely blessed,” says Stephanie Harris. “This Christmas is extra special for us and one we’ll always remember.”
Dr. Thomas Rowe delivered the Harris triplets Dec. 1, via cesarean section at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. Since that time, all three girls have been in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the hospital-routine care consistent with the birth of multiples.
“The girls are all getting stronger by the day and they are right on schedule with where we would expect them to be at this point,” says Dr. Rene Ramirez, neonatologist, medical director, NICU, Memorial Hermann Southeast. “I see no reason why they won’t be heading home with mom and dad in just a few more weeks. They’re all three doing very, very well.”
The three girls all weighed between 3 and 3.5 pounds at birth.
“I’m so happy they’re here, having three healthy girls is the best Christmas gift we could have been given,” says Brad Harris. “I’m really looking forward to having the girls home and our family all together very soon.”
