It has finally been revealed to Access Hollywood why the Quaid babies ended up in the hospital that fateful day....But now, it’s finally been revealed why the babies were brought to the hospital in the first place, just two weeks after being born.
In a candid interview, Blake Buffington, the brother of Dennis Quaid’s wife Kimberly, spoke with People about his sister’s terrifying ordeal.
“One of the twins had an infection near their belly button, near where the umbilical cord was and that was the beginning of this process,” People magazine’s senior editor J.D. Heyman told Access Hollywood after the interview with Buffington. “The kids are still in the hospital. They are still receiving intensive care.”
After being admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a common staph infection, which turned potentially deadly, the twins were hooked up to IVs that were flushed with 1,000 times the correct dosage of Heparin – a blood thinner.
But as the less-than-a-month old babies continue to battle for survival, it seems their birth itself was nothing short of a miracle for Quaid and his wife Kimberly.
