Ryan Shank - 

Thoughts go out to them, he's such a nice person


Yes! And to think- as unbelievably nice as Marcelo is, Tatiana is even more so. She really is an amazing person!

My twins came at 26 weeks. Son was 1 lb, 8 ounces and daughter was 1 lb, 14 ounces. We had three months in the NICU. It's a rough time and I pray for the best for the Garcia twins. Phone Post 3.0

My twins were born very early as well. While it was scary, it made us feel a little better that the NICU had lots of pics of alums who were born around one pound or less who are now very healthy teenagers, athletes, etc. Best of luck to Marcelo and his family!

Both are fighting the good fight. Olivia had surgery a day or two ago, Joey hasn't needed to, to my knowledge. Both are stable. It's a very scary situation, especially with their age, the fact that they're twins, and maternal age. But if any kids have true warrior DNA, it's them. Positive vibes.

Update from Tatiana Garcia on her twins, Olivia and Joey posted on her Facebook today:

"Update on babies. Tough week for Olivia- Tuesday she had an emergency intestine procedure and they didn't think she was gonna make it . We even baptized her in her isolette . It was heartbreaking and I can't describe what we felt. She made it and improved a lot . Last night at 2 am we got another call that she was going to have the procedure done again since she was getting worse. We ran to the hospital and waited for her second procedure. She is stable again but they figured it wasn't the intestine causing the problems and that she needs another surgery probably tomorrow to try to close this valve that is stealing blood from her kidneys. So please keep her in your prayers .

Joey has been stable and his lungs are healing."

BadLuck13 - Is this why Marcelo didn't compete? This is terrible, him and his wife as beyond nice people. My prayers go out to them Phone Post 3.0


I think the twins were expected to be born in late December- so I don't think their upcoming births had a direct impact on Marcelo's desire to compete this year at Mundials and/or ADCC.

Watching the recent interview with Marcelo, I think his major reasons for not competing in 2013 was that he wanted to concentrate more on his academy and teaching his students.

I got to spend some time with this guy and his beautiful family yesterday.  The babies look awesome and are kicking ass.
 
(Please keep praying and sending good vibes- the twins are stable now but they still have a long road ahead of them)

Babies just had their four week birthdays. I believe Olivia has had 3-4 surgeries and Joey 2. Per Tati's last post they are stable. Wishing the best for those great people. Phone Post 3.0

Olívia and Joey are now two months old! After 57 long days, Tati was able to hold her daughter. This picture made me burst into tears the first time I saw it and still gets a little dusty in the room each time. Phone Post 3.0
