Hi, I'm a new mom, my Jack was born las week, on September 2, 2006, at 27 weeks. I had undiagnosed preeclampsia that blossomed into eclampsia last weekend. All Friday night I vomited, unable to keep down even water. By Saturday morning, I called the doctor to meet her at the hospital where she was doing rounds. I started going blind between the time I talked to the doctor and when my mom came to pick me up. We got to the hospital and I was completely blind, and I went into seizures. Luckily they stabilized me in time, so that I was able to be there mentally for the birth of my son. He weighs 2 pounds, 3.55 oz, and is doing really well. They've discovered him to have a pda, but medicine is helping to close the hole. Unfortunately, there's not really an end in sight for being able to take him home -- they're looking at somewhere around his due date, which was late November. But he's pretty well for how small he is -- they've already taken him off the ventilator.

I guess that's all for now... sorry for the babbling!
