Congratulations on your new son!
Great to hear that you have vigilant neonatologists and OB's; that should help a lot with peace of mind. I'd continue to keep an eye on your wife and help keep her doctors posted on how she's doing. The reason I say this is that my wife had post-partum preeclampsia, and there was a point in time she felt so bad I had to call the hospital--and she has no recollection of this because of the effects of her preeclampsia. Some doctors (not our peri, thankfully) have told us that post-partum preeclampsia does not exist, and we know from personal experience that this is not true. Glad to hear that your wife is doing better. Although she and your son are still in the hospital, hope you find comfort that they are getting round-the-clock care.
Continued prayers for all of you,
