My mom called me today as I was driving home from work all excited... She was channel surfing and caught a segment on Montel about "medical mysteries": one of which was a 23-week micropreemie that lived... her mother announced that she had preeclampsia & HELLP Syndrome!
yea! one more avenue for getting the word out!
I just went to his website to see the synopsis of the show. Here's part of it.... (http://www.montelshow.com/show/todays.htm)
Jeanne was only in her 23rd week of pregnancy when symptoms of vomiting, chest ache, and dangerously high blood pressure sent her to the hospital. Soon after arriving at the hospital, Jeanne gave birth to a 12-ounce, 10 inch-long micro-preemie daughter named Taylor. Taylor was given only a 10% chance of survival, but Jeanne and her husband were determined to keep her alive. Wait till you see how little Taylor is doing today!
