I, too went back to work while Ian was in the hospital. WE decided that one of us would quit work after he came home. Since I have the insurance and made more, my husband quit. Yes, very hard financially. Luckily, we had not ever had much money, so we were used to being broke! His boss let him contiue to work a couple of evenings a week, but that was just too much stress on us. After seven years alone, it was hard enough finding any time after Ian came home, so we decided to sell the car and get rid of a few other things. So he did not have to work at all. Now, we are doing very well (2 years later). He just started his own business and I am on FMLA until this baby is born. Unfortunately, I will only get my 6 weeks pp unpaid with this baby since I am using all my FMLA now. But, life goes on.
Ian 12/26/01 - 26 weeks P/E & HELLP
