TRINIDAD: Father Of The Sextuplets In Trinidad Regrets Not Going Abroad With His Pregnant Wife.

Sup Travellers?! I'm sure that a lot of you should know about the historic birth of the sextuplets in Trinidad and Tobago. It was a memorable moment that should be written in the history books of Trinidad and Tobago. However, despite the joy associated with moment, the proud father of the babies has shown regrets in letting his wife give birth in Trinidad. 

According to reports from the The Trinidad and Tobago Guardian, Keron Cummings, the father of the sextuplets has regrets. He wished he had listened to the advice of some doctors and relatives and sent his wife overseas to give birth. "If I could do it all over again I would have sent my wife abroad," Cummings told T&T Guardian as he broke his silence yesterday, expressing concern over the aftercare given to his babies. 

According to the latest reports, two of the six babies, Kaelon Nasir and Paeton Christopher Lee, died from internal bleeding and another one, Persia Meleigh, continues to battle with pneumonia. So things have not been all good for the sextuplets. Keron Cummings is very pleased with the medical team who took care of his wife and kids but he is very upset with Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan and chairman of the North Central Regional Health Authority (NCRHA) Dr Shehenaz Mohammed.


Khan stated that up to $5 million worth of equipment was purchased for his babies but Keron said that the hospital was short of equipment.

"The hospital was short of equipment to begin with. We were concerned about the aftercare,” he said. "The Minister of Health promised us that everything would have been put in place.

It is obvious that things were not put into place as we expected.” “In any case,” he pointed out, “even if $5 million was spent, it was not only to facilitate our children. That money was spent because the hospital was lacking that equipment to begin with."

I feel the pain felt by the father. He had faith in the healthcare of Trinidad and Tobago to actually have his kids be delivered here but the results were disappointing. Who knows how much more of the babies are going to die. Let's all just pray for the safety of the remaining babies especially baby Persia. This in noway bashes the healthcare system in Trinidad and Tobago as a whole because Mr. Cummings did commend the medical team. However, the minister of health needs to get his accounts in order. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
