a little hiatus

Some of you may know but I am in the hospital right now and other than checking email I have no internet access.

I am at home for a few minutes to gather some things to take back to the hospital with me, to shower and spend a little bit of time with Matt and two of my girls. Hailey is at school and we are hoping that she can spend the night with me at the hospital tonight.

I went to see the doctor on Wednesday afternoon because I was concerned with the swelling in my hands, feet and legs and with the headaches I'd been dealing with. My blood pressure was 172/94 so they sent me straight from the OB to the hospital where I've been since Wednesday afternoon. I have pre-eclampsia and for now the doctors don't feel comfortable even sending me home on bedrest.

Family and friends have been wonderful and I am so grateful for the support. I will update you as I can. Hopefully I will be home again soon.

I HAD NO IDEA either! Praying for a great outcome and that you'll be home before weekend...better to be at hospital safe though...

I don't know what pre-eclampsia is, but it doesn't sound good. Hope everything will be fine!

Kind regards from Sweden!

I am so sorry to hear that you are still in the hospital. The RS has taken care of meals and babysitting for the next week. Hopefully that brings you some piece of mind. Get some rest. Keep us posted with any changes.
