I'm Kelly,22, and a mother to two wonderful little girls named Rebekah and Hannah. My family and I live in Montgomery and are stationed at Maxwell AFB. My Dr here was Mathew Phillips. I delivered our first child 6 weeks premature due to severe Eclampsia. I went into seizures while on strict bedrest at Baptist East and Dr Phillips delivered us on March 25,2002. I am blessed by the Lord to not have any long term effects nor my child. The thought however, I had, had a stroke due to the fact I couldn't feel my left side for almost 12 hours. So the next morning after surgery I was brought down to be CAT scanned to make sure there was no bleeds in my brain. I was fine, just really sick. I was on MAG for a total of 4 days and was able to go home a week after delivery. It seems like so long ago, but since then we have delivered a perfectly healthy girl named Hannah grace and her pregnancy was picture perfect. Its totally weird how its a hit and miss with some and its a constant reoccurance with others! I was hoping that maybe we could all get together for like a support group type thing if wanted to share our stories and our children. I can't wait to meet y'all.
May God Bless y'all!!
