Octuplet Setback

Two of the seven surviving Houston octuplets have developed an infection. Both Ikem Louis and his sister Gorom have stopped breast milk feedings and are on antibiotic treatment, said Dr. Carol Lynn Berseth. Ikem was also put back on a ventilator. The two are among eight babies born last month to Nkem Chukwu and husband Iyke Louis. “The other babies are all progressing on their feedings and doing well,” said Dr. Berseth, the attending neonatologist at Texas Children’s Hospital. The infants remain in critical but stable condition.
