So on Friday March 9th I was transferred by ambulance from Coastal to MUSC because of high blood pressure. I spent 3 nights at MUSC being released Tues March 13 being diagnosed with Pre a Eclampsia. On Weds I went to Riverside to follow up with my doctor and my Blood pressure once again was very elevated so they sent me back to coastal. When I got to coastal they did labs and found my liver enzymes were elevated and they couldn't get my BP down so they transferred me by ambulance once again to MUSC. Once there they did more labs and noticed not only did I now have severe pre eclampsia but I was going into HELLP syndrome and the only way to keep me and Ian safe was to deliver. After 36 hours of trying to get into active labor Ian became distressed and it resulted in an emergency C section.
Ian spent 4 days in the NICU and has been moved to the level 2 nursery. If he remains strong we can have him transported to Beaufort. Unfortunately those costs are on us and not covered through insurance but we are willing to do whatever it takes to have him close by so I can get him milk. He's estimated to be at a level 2 for 3-4 weeks maybe not as long. We don't really know.
Please keep them all in your prayers and any support you can give is appreciated!
