super quick update

I am still at the hospital...my labs continue to get worse as they expected with the pre-eclampsia, my blood pressure is still consistently too high so I will likely be here until after they deliver the baby. That timing depends on how quickly my blood pressure gets worse, how high the protein in my urine gets (over 800 today where they want it under 300)- I am starting to "sour" as my OB was expecting.

Thank you to everyone for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers and for all of the help given so far. It means more than you know.

And, thank you to a kind friend from church who let me borrow her laptop while I am here so that I am no longer so disconnected from everyone.

It is a scary, trying time but we are doing our best to stay positive and trust that all will be okay.

I will update again as I can.

Hang in there Becky. You're in good hands there at the hospital, they'll keep that little girl in as long as it's safe for her to be there. I hope it's long enough so you can avoid NICU time, but if she comes just a tad too early, you know where to find me!
