So what we have, is a new mother who's sick and a 78-year-old father, who proclaimed that he was now the happiest man on earth, and had a heart attack the next day.

Yes, the babies are doing fine, each continuing to gain weight--and the parents are both in the hospital's GICU (Geezer Intensive Care Unit).

What's wrong with this picture?
The father probably had a heart attack wondering how he could afford to send two kids to college when he was 96. Maybe work extra overtime on his job?

And, how he was going to manage all those stairs when he attended their college graduation at age 100.

All, kidding aside, IMHO, there should be an established guideline for the mother's age at IVF, 55 or maybe 60, seems reasonable (as long as they are in tip-top health).

Congratulations to the babies who will soon be orphans!!!

The doctor who did this should be responsible to raise them until 18.

I was curious for an update about this couple, but I haven't found one. I did find articles stating that the mother was 72, then 74, that the father was 78, 80, and 82, that he had a stroke the day after the birth, a heart attack the day after the birth, and a heart attack a week after the birth.

In other words, the facts are not clear.
