Flesh Eating Bacteria Mom Twins

The mother who gave birth to twins just hours before contracting flesh-eating bacteria has been reunited with her little boy and girl.

Lana Kuykendall is finally reunited with her twin babies Abigail and Ian a month after she contracted flesh-eating bacteria.

According to a June 8 Daily Mail report, Lana is in “fair” condition and is on the road to recovery. Lana, 38, was finally able to hold her babies again after doctors decided she was well enough to be exposed to them.

“Lana grinned from ear to ear when she was holding them,” her brother, Brian Swaffer, said.

On May 11, Lana, a paramedic, had noticed a rapidly spreading red and black bruise on her leg after going through labor. She raced to the Greenville Memorial Hospital with her husband Darren to have surgery for necrotizing fasciitis, also known as flesh-eating bacteria.

Lana has had almost 20 surgical procedures to contain and treat the infection. She is tentatively scheduled to have skin graft surgery on her legs, said hospital spokeswoman Sandy Dees.

Unlike the other recent flesh-eating bacteria victim Aimee Copeland, 24, who lost a leg and both hands, Lana has not had any limbs amputated.

“She has improved tremendously over the last week,” her husband Darren said. “Although she is still in ICU, we believe she is on the road to recovery. She looks more and more like herself.”
