Think about my granddaughter today

she is in the hospital with super high blood pressure. she is 7 1/2 pregant.

they may have to take the baby. they are not having much luck with meds.

it is their first child and they are scared to death.

so pray for her, or hold good thoughts.

babe

My daughter had preeclampsia toward the end of her pregnancy. Babies in my family always seem to arrive 10 days late, but this one and his mommy couldn't wait that long.

By taking the baby, that just means they'll either induce labor or do a c-section. Thirty weeks is not all that early anymore, as doctors know a lot more about taking care of premies.

I have two grandsons who might not be here if they had been born 40
years sooner.

I remember how close my grandma was to me, and I will never forget her. Have faith, and be strong for your grandaughter, whatever might happen. I will have her and the baby in my heart and prayers.

news

just had a call on condition of granddaughter. her blood pressure is down but still to high.

they are planning on a c-section for sure. just want to get it down so surgery not such a risk.

tests on baby are all fine heart rate etc. they gave suzanne a shot of cortizine for babie's lungs. want to get in one more before surgery.

i feel the baby will be fine, not so sure about suzanne.

babe

How dreadfully stressful for you and your family Babe. Constance is right though, the baby has a very good chance of surviving this and every day that she holds on, the better her chances are. Hoping for a good outcome for you and yours.
