Re: My sister is in intensive care, I need your info/tips,pl

Hi, welcome, I hope that we can be helpful to you in this time of great stress and anguish. I think that from the sound of things that your sister is very ill. However, her baby has been safely delivered and is doing reasonably well. This is good because it allows your sister's physicians to focus e...

Re: When will I start feeling better???

You"ll get there in the end, it just may take you longer than you expect. The aren't misleading you when they tell you that you are most likely to recover completely. I too had HELLP syndrome with my Lucy (clearly we have some karmic link) and I remember how lousy I felt even as I healed. Even when ...

Re: Not sure what to do

You are in a very tough spot and I can only imagine how difficult it is for you and your husband right now. I would just suggest that you remember that you may need to think in the same kind of terms as the airlines do when they tell you that in "the event of a loss of oxygen that you apply your own...

Re: Questions about NEC

Jean, my understanding is that NEC is a serious complication of premature newborns that occurs when their intestinal flora (aka the bacteria that usually live in the gut) trigger an inflammatory response that damages their gut quite severely. Sometimes this even results in leakage to the peritoneal ...

Re: 8 weeks later and I'm "google-ing" HELLP

What a marathon for you! The force of the Google is very strong and I'm glad it brought you to us! When I did the same thing after I had HELLP all I found were a few scientific articles....and me, thinly disguised as case conference notes! (this was pre-HIPPA and would never happen now). I found the...
