Sid, any news? How are your wife and baby?
There are indications for immediate delivery in this disease regardless of gestational age, because either mom or baby cannot tolerate being pregnant any longer. Sometimes, despite the best efforts of a top-notch medical team, the only option is delivery -- the mother will begin to seize, her liver will rupture, blood will stop flowing to the baby and its only chance of survival will be in a NICU, etc.
I hope to hear that her situation is not so catastrophic. Please keep us posted as you have the opportunity.
