After her twins decided to come into the world 75 days early, 16 and Pregnant alum Lindsey Harrison gave fans a hopeful update on her daughter Paisley's progress. The preemie, along with her brother Jackson, has been battling health issues since her birth, but it looks like Paisley could be going home soon.
"To defy all odds and for BOTH of them to be healthy like they are is a miracle. I’ve never in my life been so thankful and felt so blessed. Just when nobody thought our sweet Paisley would make it anymore, she continued to prove everyone wrong," she wrote on Instagram on Jan. 7, her original due date. "I’m pretty sure God and Paisley were just sitting back with a grin on their faces, knowing that all of this was just making her get that perfect hook around our fingers so she’d have her life set at home."
She also revealed Paisley's liver levels are back to normal and her blood clots are almost all gone. "Crying so many happy tears," she continued. "She also got her feeding tube taken out the other day. She’s doing so, so sooo good. I’m beyond proud of our little fighter." Last month, the MTV star and her husband T.J. Nicholson started a GoFundMe page to help with their skyrocketing medical bills. So far, they have raised just over $3,500 of their $15,000 goal. Lindsey is also mom to six-year-old daughter Aniyah.
"Each day it costs $5,400 for the twins to be in the NICU," the campaign explains. "That’s not including any treatment they need either. The time Lindsey is having to take off from work. Any little bit will help relieve some stress." At the time of their birth, Lindsey revealed, "Yesterday after a 26-hour labor we got to welcome Paisley and Jackson into the world at 29 weeks, four days... 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." Our thoughts are with Lindsey and her family during this difficult time.
