Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry to hear you go so much sicker so quickly, but glad you and Levi are on your way to health.

Postpartum PE can get worse up to 6 weeks PP, so please continue to take care of yourself and report your bps and symptoms to your doctor.

Great news that Levi's lungs are healthy and strong, and that he's slowly figuring out this eating thing ;) - and good luck with breastfeeding, it's more challenging with our little ones but quite a few of our members have managed it. Is there a NICU lactation consultant to help you if you need it?

Definitely prayers that Levi can come home soon!
