Help twin 2 worries

I went for a scan today at 31 and 5 days it was a detailed scan at the fetal med dept to take a further look at some 'bright bowel' that had shown up on my 20 week scan on twin 2. The good news is that both babes are growing well and have estimated weights of 3lbs 12ozs and 3lbs 15ozs so that is great but twin 2 is now showing some dilated loops of small bowel that more than likely indicate an obstruction that will need investigation after birth and probably bowel surgery soon after birth. I am trying to keep a level head as they cant say until they are born but to say the least I am terrified. Where I live the childrens hospital is in the middle of the town centre and away from where they would be born so that babes would have to be transferred away - I dont know yet if they will let me go with the other baby but the whole situation is so frightening. There is just no way of telling the extent of the probs until they arrive. If anyone has had similar experience or knows of anyone who has I would be so greatful to hear from you.x
