In this Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016 photo, Federica Bianchi talks with her twin sons at their home in Rome.

After Edoardo’s brother, Raffaello, caught the bug, Bianchi brought them twice to Bambino Gesu, but was sent home. Eventually another hospital diagnosed them with rotavirus, isolated them to contain the infection and put them on rehydration drips. "I went to Bambino Gesu because I thought it was the best hospital in Rome," Bianchi said. (AP Photo/Domenico Stinellis)
