Since the birth of Lindsey Harrison's twins — Jackson and Paisley — last month, the former 16 and Pregnant star has been updating fans on Instagram about their health. Fortunately, the two are now thriving after contracting meningitis. Last week, she revealed that her son is now staph & E.Coli-free and her daughter — although it took her longer to kick the infection — has finally come back with a negative blood culture. Unfortunately, this doesn't mean that their worries are behind them just yet.
On Nov. 15, Lindsey revealed that Paisley is still having complications. "They found a blood clot in her main portal," she wrote. "(They think that’s why the infection lingered so long; it was most likely hiding in it). Doctors are rushing to figure out the exact issues and treatment plans as a liver typically doesn’t start to show signs of failure until 60 days from the day of birth. So they are working promptly to figure everything out before the 60 days so that won’t happen." She continued, "Paisley's case is so rare that the infectious disease specialists are writing a story on her to warn doctors around the world, since she may be the only baby in the world that’s had a blood culture remain positive for as long as hers did."
Lindsey welcomed her babies on Oct. 25 after a particularly tough pregnancy. She shared the exciting news on her private Instagram account at the time. "Yesterday after a 26-hour labor we got to welcome Paisley and Jackson into the world at 29 weeks, four days," the proud mama wrote. "Jackson — 1:55 p.m., 3.5 pounds, natural birth, Paisley — 2:07 p.m., 2.15 pounds, natural birth. My heart has never been so happy. So incredibly thankful for each and every one of you who prayed for us. God heard everyone's prayers. So thankful they weighed a lot for their gestational age and are doing great. We have a very long road ahead of us but I know our babies are strong." Keep fighting, girl!
