NewsHub 24 October 2018Family First Comment: A beautiful yet sad story.“Ms Gilkison made the brave decision to continue the pregnancy and enjoy her time with her son, even travelling to Tonga at 35 weeks to swim with whales and their calves. “I began thinking I’d like to have a bit of time with my baby, rather than no time at all.””Life is valuable – no matter how long or short.#CelebrateLifewww.ChooseLife.nzEmma Gilkison had to make a choice no mother should have to: whether to continue her pregnancy knowing her child would die.During a routine 12-week scan in 2014, she and her partner Roy discovered their unborn baby had a deadly heart defect.After seeing her baby’s heart “looking like a twinkling star” on the ultrasound screen, she jumped onto Google where she discovered the condition ‘ectopia cordis’, in which the heart develops outside of the chest.It’s so rare it affects just eight in every million babies born.Doctors confirmed the diagnosis and Ms Gilkinson immediately looked into treatment options. A handful of babies with ectopia cordis have been operated on, but tragically that option was ruled out 20 weeks into the pregnancy.“It was revealed in another scan that not only was our little boy’s heart in the wrong place, it also had other defects, so there were just too many problems for a surgeon to try to fix,” she told The AM Show.She was faced with the earth-shattering decision of whether to abort or continue with the pregnancy, knowing her son wouldn’t live long outside her womb.“That was a really heartbreaking moment. I held onto a little bit of hope that our baby might have been one of those miracle wonder kids that survives when nobody thinks they’re going to.“I realised that whilst there was hope for our baby to live, I would have been willing to do anything for him to give him a chance at life.”Ms Gilkison made the brave decision to continue the pregnancy and enjoy her time with her son, even travelling to Tonga at 35 weeks to swim with whales and their calves.“I began thinking I’d like to have a bit of time with my baby, rather than no time at all.”Knowing her son would never have a first birthday, she and her family threw him a birth month party before he was born, complete with cake, balloons and a puppet show.Jesús Valentino was born on October 26 and lived for 15 and a half days.“I know that sounds like nothing, but actually it was far more time than we’d dreamed of,” Ms Gilkison says. “They were really days of miracle and wonder, they were incredible.”READ MORE: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/lifestyle/2018/10/why-a-mother-continued-her-pregnancy-knowing-her-baby-would-die.html
Mos Burger to open in Manila; teases with a pop-up In ‘Jojo Rabbit,’ Comedy and Drama Collide View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Neither of the mistakes led to points for Tampa Bay (2-2), which was unable to do much offensively until the fourth quarter.Brady threw a 5-yard TD pass to Chris Hogan in the second quarter, and Stephen Gostkowski kicked field goals of 27, 23, 45 and 48 yards for the Patriots (3-2).FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogJameis Winston rallied Tampa Bay late with an 18-yard TD pass to Cameron Brate that trimmed New England’s lead to 16-14 with 2:09 remaining. He marched the Bucs from his 25 to the Patriots 19 before throwing an incompletion on the final play.It might not have come down to a last-second drive if not for another poor performance by Bucs kicker Nick Folk. San Beda racks up 14th straight win, eliminates EAC Folk missed two field goals and an extra-point before beating the New York Giants on a last-second kick last week. He missed three more field goals Thursday, including a 31-yarder that would have cut a nine-point deficit to six in the closing minutes.With his 186th career regular-season win as a starter, Brady tied Brett Favre and Peyton Manning for the most by a quarterback in NFL history. He also has 25 postseason victories, including five Super Bowls.Defensively, the Patriots entered the night on pace to yield more than yards than any team in league history.And, Winston and a young Tampa Bay offense that’s progressively gotten better since he was selected first overall in the 2015 draft was hoping to be the latest beneficiary of New England’s struggles.Running back Doug Martin provided a lift in his return from a suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancers with 74 yards rushing and one TD.But one week after throwing for 332 yards and three touchdowns without an interception and overcoming a pair of fourth-quarter deficits to beat the Giants, Winston was unable to move the ball consistently until the fourth quarter.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES DAY6 is for everybody Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed Winston finished 26 of 45 with 334 yards and no interceptions.

The Patriots have dropped back-to-back games only six times during that time span — in 2006, 2009, 2011, 2012 and twice in 2015. As a starter, Brady is 44-10 in games following a loss.RING OF HONORThe Buccaneers honored Malcolm Glazer at halftime, inducting the late owner into the Ring of Honor at Raymond James Stadium.Glazer, whose family still runs the team, died in 2014 at the age of 85.

“It is a very tough match because USM Alger is a good side and we have watched several of their games including their first game against Yanga. They have fast and technical players and they should give us quite a challenge,” Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr said.Alger kicked-off their campaign in emphatic form, beating Yanga 4-0 at their Algerian backyard and walk into the fixture with confidence.Head coach Miloud Hamdi expects a tough match from the hosts, having watched several of their games and he knows his boys will be in for a rough challenge.“Gor Mahia are leading the Kenyan league and they are quite tough at home with fans always behind them so I know it will be very tough for us. The good thing is that they will miss one of their top strikers who would have given us a lot of trouble and I think we stand a chance,” the tactician said pre-match.Gor Mahia’s Jack Tuyisenge (centre) is congratulated by teammates Meddie Kagere (left) and Francis Kahata (right) after scoring against Mathare United during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on April 29, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaGor will be without Rwandese striker Meddie Kagere who is serving a one match suspension after accumulating yellow cards and his absence will be a point for concern for Kerr who has been a firm believer of the partnership between Kagere and Jacques Tuyisenge.“It is of course a blow for us because Meddie is an integral part of the team. But we go in there with confidence and I have faith in Ephraim (Guikan) that he can comfortably fill that gap. He has shown his quality before and I hope he can do it against USM,” the British tactician offered.Kerr will borrow chunks of confidence from their display against English Championship side Hull City, a game they lost 4-3 on penalties after spurning chances in a 0-0 draw in regulation time.“We dominated the game and that is what I would want to see against the Algerian team. We need to have the confidence in ourselves that we can play better and win. We create so many chances like against Rayon, but our problem is that we can finish them. We need to improve on this,” Kerr further advised.Skipper Harun Shakava has meanwhile urged his teammates to make the most of the one advantage, noting that beating Alger at home will be a strong indicator of their intention to make it into the quarter finals.“We had such a great atmosphere when we played against Hull and if we can come close to that on Wednesday night, I am confident we will have good results. It is a very tough match because North African teams are no pushovers. But if we can have the fans behind us, we can do anything,” the tough defender noted.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr gestures during his side’s friendly match against Hull City on May 13, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaHe added; “We want to win all our home matches to give ourselves a decent chance of qualifying to the next stage and if we can win against Alger, that will be a huge motivator for us.”Gor will look to borrow a leaf from neighbors Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) who on Tuesday shocked eight-time African Champions Al Ahly beating them 2-0 in Kampala.They will also fancy their chances against an Alger side that has not had a pretty good run of results. They lost away to JS Kabilye in their last league match five days ago, their third loss in four games.Alger have not won their last six away matches in all competitions, drawing one and losing all their last five, including in the Confederations Cup against Nigeria’s Plateau United.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia players join Francis Kahata in celebrating his sumptuous goal against Thika United in a Kenyan Premier League match at the Machakos Stadium on April 22, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, KENYA, May 16- A win for Gor Mahia on Wednesday evening against Algeria’s USM Alger at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani will earn them top spot in Group D of the CAF Confederation Cup if Rayon Sport fails to earn maximum points against Tanzania’s Yanga.The 16-time Kenyan champions started their campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Rayon Sport and playing their first match at home, the side is confident they have done just but enough to ensure they bag three points.
Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal on Thursday entered the women’s singles quarterfinal of the Malaysia Masters with a straight-game win over Hong Kong’s Pui Yin Yip in Kuala Lumpur.Saina, seeded seventh, took 39 minutes to tame Yip 21-14 21-16 in her second round encounter.Saina will play second seed Nozomi Okuhara of Japan in the last-eight stage of the first Super 500 tournament of the year on Friday.World no. 9 Saina holds an 8-4 overall head-to-head record against Okuhara, which includes back-to-back wins over the current world No.2 in the last two tournaments — last year’s Demark Open and the French Open.If Saina manages to go past Okuhara, the Indian might run into fourth seed Carolina Marin, who is placed in her half of the draw.Saina’s husband Parupalli Kashyap meanwhile, couldn’t advance any further than the second round as he lost to Anthony Sinisuka Ginting of Indonesia 27-17, 25-23 in a match which lasted for just 53 minutes.Seventh seed Kidambi Srikanth on the other hand, stormed into the men’s singles quarters after Wong Wing Ki Vincent of Hong Kong 23-21, 8-21, 21-18 in a hard-faught encounter lasting more than an hour.Srikanth will be up against Korea’s Son Wan Ho in the quarter-finals.India’s women’s doubles pair of Ashwini Ponappa and N Sikky Reddy also crashed out of the tournament after losing to the Indonesian pair of Ni Ketut Mahadewi Istarani and Rizki Amelia Pradipta 18-21, 17-21 in the second round.(With PTI inputs)
